  1. That’s a wrap on the 2020 World Series of Poker as the final event of the series, Event #83 ($10,000 WSOP Super MILLION$) concluded with Connor Drinan eliminating his final six opponents to collect the $1,423,409 first-place prize and his first career gold bracelet. As one of the elite tournament players in the game today, Drinan’s victory came at the end of a WSOP grind that lasted over two months. After his record-setting PokerStars SCOOP performance, Drinan returned to Las Vegas and battled in the entire first half of tournaments on WSOP.com. He then flew to Mexico to compete in the second half of the series on GGPoker. In total, Drinan racked up 20 results, including three final tables, and more than $147,000 prior to his gold bracelet run. As a bonus, Drinan was one of the high-profile names that took Daniel Negreanu up on his $100,000 must-win bracelet bet. By winning, Drinan added another six-figure score to his total should Negreanu not find a way (or have the opportunity) to win a bracelet by the end of the year. The first elimination of the final table took place on the very first hand. From the button, Christopher Kruk put in a raise with [poker card="td"][poker card="9d"] and was called by Kenneth Smaron in the big blind who was holding [poker card="qh"][poker card="jc"] and sitting on a short stack. The flop came [poker card="jd"][poker card="7d"][poker card="3c"] and Smaron checked his top pair over to Kruk who put in a small bet with his flush and gutshot straight draw. Smaron check-shoved for the rest of his stack and Kruk insta-called. The [poker card="ad"] peeled off on the river, giving Kruk a flush and leaving Smaron drawing dead to the [poker card="2h"] river. Smaron exited in ninth place for $110,389. Roughly twenty minutes later, Sylvain Loosli put Russia’s Arsenii Malinov to the test for all his chips. When folded to in the small blind, Loosli raised enough to put Malinov all in with [poker card="9h"][poker card="7h"]. Malinov made the call with [poker card="as"][poker card="qc"] and just needed to hold to secure a double up. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="8d"][poker card="7c"] flop gave Loosli two pair and a stranglehold on the hand. When the [poker card="2s"] hit the turn it was all over for Malinov who watched a meaningless [poker card="js"] hit the river. Malinov finished in eighth place for $152,113. In a span of 20 minutes, Kruk went from the chip lead to the rail. As the stacks evened out, Drinan put in an early raise with [poker card="ah"][poker card="ac"]. When it folded around to Kruk in the small blind, he moved all in for his final 20 big blinds with [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"] only to be snap-called by Drinan. Although dominated, Kruk found some life on the [poker card="js"][poker card="9s"][poker card="3d"] flop. The [poker card="6h"] turn took away Kruk’s backdoor spades out and the [poker card="8h"] ended his run in seventh place for $209,609. With six left, Suraj Mishra found himself in great shape to retake the chip lead he started the day with. After Drinan opened with [poker card="9h"][poker card="9c"], Mishra shipped nearly 25 blind with [poker card="td"][poker card="ts"]. After taking some time, Drinan made the call. Mishra went from dominating to dominated after Drinan hit a set on the [poker card="ad"][poker card="9d"][poker card="7h"] flop. The [poker card="5d"] opened up some flush draw outs or Mishra but the [poker card="kc"] river sent him home in sixth place, good for $288,836. The hand gave Drinan a considerable chip lead, which he never gave up. When just over 10 big blinds left in his stack, Loosli moved all in from the small blind with [poker card="kd"][poker card="4h"] and was called by Drinan in the big blind with the [poker card="as"][poker card="2h"]. The [poker card="8h"][poker card="6h"][poker card="5c"] flop gave Loosli some additional outs but the [poker card="qd"] turn and [poker card="9d"] river was of no help. The former WSOP November Niner was forced to settle for sixth place and $398,010. Drinan spent the better part of the next thirty minutes padding his chip lead before he got into an all-in confrontation with former #1 ranked Chris Oliver. Oliver put in a raise for the majority of his stack with [poker card="as"][poker card="8s"] only to be three-bet by Drinan holding [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"]. Oliver made the call, putting his tournament at risk. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="jh"][poker card="8c"] flop gave both players a pair but Oliver failed to improve through the [poker card="4s"] turn and the [poker card="td"] river. Oliver finished in fourth place for $548,450. Viktor Ustimov was next in Drinan’s sights. After Ustimov put in a raise with [poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"], Drinan moved all in with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="qd"]. Ustimov made the call and saw he was flipping for a shot to get back into the tournament. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="qs"][poker card="js"] left Ustimov looking for a lot of help, which didn’t appear on the [poker card="5c"] turn, nor the [poker card="ts"] river. Ustimov took third place and logged off with a $755,754 payday. Drinan held an overwhelming chip lead headed into his heads-up battle with Daniyar Aubakirov, however Aubakirov kept it interesting. However, even though Aubakirov secured two double-ups at different points in the match, Drinan was not going to be denied. Drinan found his way back to a better than 4:1 chip lead when Aubakirov moved his final fifteen big blinds all in with [poker card="as"][poker card="jc"]. When Drinan made the call with [poker card="ac"][poker card="9s"], Aubakirov was on the verge of his third double up. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="kh"][poker card="4s"] flop gave both top pair, but Aubakirov’s kicker was in play. The turn was the [poker card="8s"] but it was the [poker card="9c"] river that gave Drinan the hand, the tournament and his first career gold bracelet. Aubakirov finished as the runner-up and walked away with a $1,041,414 score. On the final tournament of the 2020 World Series of Poker, Connor Drinan locked up a $1,423,049 first-place prize, his first WSOP gold bracelet, and a $100,000 must-win bracelet side bet against Daniel Negreanu. Final Table Payouts Connor Drinan - $1,423,049 Daniyar Aubakirov - $1,041,414 Viktor Ustimov - $755,754 Chris Oliver - $548,450 Sylvain Loosli - $398,010 Suraj Mishra - $288,836 Christopher Kruk - $209,609 Arsenii Malinov - $152,113 Kenneth Smaron - $110,389
  2. Ivan Zufic came to the final table of Event #63 ($500 Mini Main Event) of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online with the chip lead and turned that lead into gold as he outlasted his final eight opponents to win $843,460 and his first career WSOP bracelet. The tournament drew a total of 15,205 across multiple starting flights with 2,055 of them returning to play Day 2 on Sunday. It took more than 16 hours to play down to a winner including more than two hours for the final table alone. Fedor Kruse came to the final table with the third shortest stack but had already picked up a $188,000 score earlier in the day after winning a $3,000 side event. Unfortunately for him, that wound up being his best cash of the day. Just a few minutes after the final table began Suraj Mishra moved raised to 7,000,000 from late position with [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"] before Kruse moved all in for 29,194,761 from the button with [poker card="ah"][poker card="9h"]. Mishra called and then watched the [poker card="ac"][poker card="7s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="6h"][poker card="as"] runout give him the pot thanks to his kicker to eliminate Kruse in ninth place. It took a full half-hour before the next elimination. Royal Pek moved all in for 11,147,776 from UTG with [k8][poker card="8h"] before Daniel Saugspier re-raised to 36,694,440 from the small blind with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qd"] forcing Daniel Neilson folded his big blind. The [poker card="ac"][poker card="ts"][poker card="3s"] flop missed Pek and he was eliminated in eighth place after the [poker card="ah"] turn and [poker card="9c"] river completed the board. Just a minute later, Troy McLean raised to 17,500,000 from UTG and Zufic called from his immediate left. Neilson moved all in from the cutoff for 137,597,212 with, McLean called off his last 1,828,688 and Zufic folded. Neilson showed [poker card="kd"][poker card="ks"] while McLean tabled [poker card="2h"][poker card="2s"]. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="ts"][poker card="7h"][poker card="kc"][poker card="3h"] runout ended McLean's run in seventh. Zufic picked his first elimination of the final table 20 minutes later. The Croatian raised to 8,000,000 from late position with [poker card="ah"][poker card="9h"] and action folded to Derek Miller in the big blind. He moved all in for 49,212,982 with [poker card="as"][poker card="4d"] and Zufic called. The [poker card="8s"][poker card="6s"][poker card="5d"] flop gave Miller some runner-runner flush hopes. The [poker card="6d"] turn added some chop outs but the [poker card="ks"] river was no help and Miller was eliminated in sixth. place. The deep structure allowed play to carry on for another 40 minutes without an elimination. From the cutoff, Suraj Mishra raised to 10,000,000 with [poker card="jd"][poker card="jh"] and Oleksii Kravchuk re-raised to 85,000,000 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="qh"]. Mishra then re-raised to 160,000,000 and Kravchuk called off the last 16,997,222. The [poker card="8c"][poker card="6s"][poker card="5d"] flop left Kravchuk in a bad spot and neither the [poker card="9d"] turn nor [poker card="as"] was able to save him from a fifth place finish. Mishra put his stack to use five minutes when he raised to 12,000,000 from UTG with [poker card="as"][poker card="qh"]. Daniel Saugspier moved all from the small blind for 55,343,172 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"] and Mishra called. Both players made top pair on the [poker card="ah"][poker card="9c"][poker card="7s"] flop but Mishra's kicker played through the [poker card="tc"] turn and [poker card="5c"] river to end Saugspier's run in fourth. Down to three players, a preflop confrontation between the blinds lead to the next elimination. Daniel Neilson pushed his last 58,501,800 in from the small blind with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kh"] and Mishra called from the big blind with [poker card="ah"][poker card="tc"]. The [poker card="jc"][poker card="jh"][poker card="7h"] flop seemed relatively safe for Neilson. The [poker card="8d"] turn gave Mishra a gutshot straight draw which came in on the [poker card="9s"] river to eliminate Neilson in third and send the tournament to heads up. Zufic held a 5.5 big blind lead when heads up play began but he needed just 10 minutes to eliminate Mishra and claim his first WSOP bracelet. On the final hand Mishra moved all in for 50,612,190 with [poker card="2c"][poker card="2d"] and Zufic called with [poker card="ac"][poker card="9s"]. The drama was short-lived as the [poker card="ad"] was the first card dealt to the table along with the [poker card="6d"] and [poker card="4h"]. Mishra didn't connect with the [poker card="8h"] turn or [poker card="5c"] river and was eliminated in second place. Final Table Payouts Ivan Zufic - $843,460 Suraj Mishra - $586,157 Daniel Neilson - $401,635 Daniel Saugspier - $275,200 Oleksii Kravchuk - $188,567 Derek Miller - $129,206 Troy McLean - $88,532 Royal Pek - $60,662 Fedor Kruse - $41,566
