News from GGPOKEROK will dominate the online poker world in August. WSOP Online has started, and tournaments of the standard tournament schedule, such as Super MILLION $, bring pleasant news for the Russian-speaking community.
Pole Bartlomey “chester20o” Sveboda wins WSOP Online bracelet at GGPOKEROK (+ $ 162K)
The first bracelet event – $ 50 The Return NLH $ 1M Gtd – collected 30,810 entries and $ 1,417,260 in prize money. 3,584 players advanced to the final day.
Not a single GG ambassador, influencer or streamer made it to the final table. But there were Russians Sergey “sit_boom777” Sitnikov and Ivan “GangstaZab” Zabiyakin. Both started the final among the chip leaders, but failed: Sitnikov was eliminated in 7th place, receiving $ 28,648, and Zabiyakin – in 4th place, receiving $ 67,936.
A minute after Zabiyakin’s departure, Vietnamese Cuong Trinh knocked out Israeli Eran Soffer – he was content with $ 90,595 – and faced Bartlomiej Swieboda (in the title photo) in a prolonged heads-up.
At the beginning, Kuong had a fivefold stack advantage and it seemed that a quick and easy victory was guaranteed to him, but Bartlomey quickly seized the initiative, leveled the stacks in 15 minutes. After that, it was difficult for the Vietnamese to recognize the Pole’s strategy, so he quickly gave up his entire stack, leaving in 2nd place with a prize of $ 120,810.
