The WSOP Double Chance was a 2-Stack event, with a player receiving 2 stacks of 10,000 chips per buy-in. One stack is placed on the table at the beginning of the game, and the other can be used at any time until the end of late registration (after it is over, all chips are put into play).
After the first game day, 24 participants remained in the game, and a total of 1643 were registered, taking into account the reentry. Bachata master Stoyan “UncleToni” Obrezhkov Hit the money 38 times at the WSOP, made $ 440K, but still doesn’t have a bracelet. He came closest to the coveted trophy in 2020, when he finished seventh in the WSOP International Main Event (this is the WSOP where the final 9-max was held in Rozvadov).
The Bulgarian started the game in the final day as a big chip leader with 101.7 big blinds. For comparison, the closest pursuer Andreas “Duckzzz” Nasman had a stack of 68.6 big blinds. But it didn’t work out … Only only sixth place.
Despite the fact that the winner of the tournament in the GGPOKEROK lobby is Thiago Macedo, we still tend to trust Brazilian poker resources who refer to him as Thiago Crema.

The future champion went heads-up against Andreas “Duckzzz” Nasman, two times behind in chips. The opponents played very aggressively, the Finn put pressure on the opponent. But Thiago Macedo proved once again that Brazilians are not shy. Beautiful hero-call IneedWasabi, after which the heads-up move changed. Thiago broke off three bets in a 3-bet pot with all-in on the river on the second pair !!!
In the final hand, Thiago completed-called with Q9o 14 BB deep, caught two pair and called in position on the flop, check behind on the turn, and called all-in on the river.
