The $ 1,111 tournament raised 1,584 players, $ 1,759,824 in prize money, and over $ 175K in charity for Caesars Cares, a covid-affected community in Nevada.
Joao moved into the second day of the $ 1,111 Caesars Cares Charity Event WSOP Online 2021 chip leader and stayed there until the pre-finals, gradually reducing the number of hands played. As a result, he entered the final with an average stack and spent more than an hour to the maximum.
Then in 6-max Joao was lucky to knock out Andras Nemeth (preflop 66> QQ for 20 BB), getting the second stack. Then he turned on the “save energy” mode again. After waiting for the most active player in the finals Espen “_sennj_” Sandvik to send Ilya “Dezauzer” Yakunin to rest, Simao got rid of Roman Hrabek, leaving Tom Shaham to be torn apart by Espen.
After that, the confrontation between the Brazilian and the Norwegian lasted only 10 minutes – despite the tenacity and thirst for victory, Espen could not beat the partypoker ambassador and was eliminated from the tournament in second place. Joao’s win earned $ 228,946. Strange, but PokerCraft and Pokernews show a lower amount for the first place. I hope that Joao Simao was not cheated. Let’s try to understand and clarify the prize money.
Upd. As the representative of the room said:
PokerKraft shows the correct amounts. The screenshot from the stream shows without deducting the amount that will go to charity
For the Brazilian, the # WSOP2021 bracelet is the first in his career, although he already has many titles on his account. For example, in 2019 he won The Venom at PokerKing under the nickname galodoido13, and in 2020 he became the best in two Powerfest events at partypoker.

This is what our wrote yesterday TG channel Pokeroffru (by the way, don’t forget to subscribe!) about Dipran LeBronka in this WSOP Online Event:
LeBronki’s most loyal fan of today’s WSOP Online match – Sigora
Leonid “LeBroHbKA” Logunov advanced to the second day of WSOP Event # 2 with a buy-in of $ 1,111. Long before the start of the tournament, he sold 75% of the action with no odds. The slices were taken apart like hot cakes. For example, Minton took 2%, Alexander Shevlyakov – 20%.
And for Sigora, perhaps this investment will be the most profitable in his life: he bought 35% of the action. Sigora skated over 600 tournaments at GGPOKEROK for minus $ 18K. And now LeBronka can smear the entire loss with a single skid. So far, the minimum ITM in the top 20 has guaranteed a backer from Ukraine $ 2,743 (with an investment of $ 389). You need to get into the top 5 – then Sigora will earn $ 22.8K and mark all its minuses.
Unfortunately for the backer from Ukraine, Leonid was unable to survive a single pagejump after resuming play on the final day:
- 19th place Leonid «LeBroHbKA» Logunov $ 7,839
