It has been an 8-year hunt for a first bracelet for Dobrin who first appeared on the WSOP board in 2012. Dobrin collected on three circuit events, one of which awarded him a maiden circuit ring at the WSOP Caesars Palace Ante Only No Limit Hold’em event. In 2015, Dobrin came very close to a bracelet, finishing 4th at the $ 777 No Limit Hold’em Lucky Sevens to pocket his first six figure payout of $ 160,496. The following year, Dobrin tacked on more circuit deep runs including another ring for his win at the WSOPC Bally’s $ 365 No Limit Hold’em. By the end of 2019, he had a combined 49 WSOP / WSOPC cashes.

Enter 2020 WSOP Online [ USA ], Dobrin attacked the online felt leading to four cashes. He then headed out of the country to participate in the international segment which proved to be a fruitful decision. Dobrin cashed at 11 events before landing the elusive gold and the career high score $ 189,666.73.

Ferguson was first to fall with Ambraisse raking it in. Ferguson’s As2h shove ran into Ambraisse’s AhAc to cripple him down to one big blind. Two hands later, Ambraisse scooped the rest to claim his first of two victims of the final table. Joining Ferguson was Japan’s Hiroki Morishita “shin-8” railed by MacDonnell. Sergio Veloso “TonyGPT” helped clean house by knocking out Arvhin Malinab “Arvsturrrrr”.

At six remaining, it was the pros in action. Dobrin lost his lead when MacDonnell capitalized fully with quad Queens. This gave Ambraisse the chip advantage though briefly. Dobrin quickly reclaimed it by finishing off Veloso in 6th place. Not long after, Santos picked up his first head with quad Jacks railing MacDonnell, however, as quick as it came, it was taken. Santos lost a chunk to Dobrin then Ambraisse took the rest. Twenty minutes after Santos’s fall, Dobrin railed Martirosyan to face Ambraisse for the title.

Although Ambraisse was ahead in chips, it was Dobrin winning the pots. Within the first five minutes, Dobrin had taken command and never looked back. Dobrin eliminated Ambraisse in less than ten minutes of heads up action. Both earned their largest known tournament score.
