For international players, the series opened on July 19 on Natural8 – GG Network running until September 6. Filling up the roster are 54 bracelet events. As of today, 9 have already been won and over $ 14.5 million paid out in completed bracelet events. Open events and highlight events still to come are listed below which includes the prestigious $ 5,000 No Limit Hold’em Main Event [ $25 Million GTD ].


WSOP #32: The Opener $100 [$2M GTD] – Marcelo Jakovjlevic Pudla – $ 265,879.63

Resuming from the DDoS attack on opening day, the WSOP #32: The Opener $100 [$2M GTD] event ran without a hitch. 3,684 players on the chase for the biggest piece of the $ 2,696,152 prize pool. After ten hours of nonstop action, Brazil’s Marcelo Jakovjlevic Pudla “Marolo” outlasted the competition and banked his first major win. Pudla was awarded a slew of prizes: the $ 265,879.53 first prize, the signature WSOP gold bracelet, $ 15,000 WSOP Europe Package Ticket, and as a Natural8 player, he won a 6 Month Team Bling Sponsorship package worth $ 7,500.

With only one small cash to his name, Pudla is another dreamer whose WSOP wish was granted. He was a man on a mission, knocking out five players at the final table which included South African Ronit Chamani who has been chasing down the gold for ten years. Chamani still has plenty of chances with only a fraction of the bracelets claimed so far. Another player meeting Pudla’s deathly axe was Ramiro Petrone who won a partypoker LIVE MILLIONS event held in Argentina in February for a cool million bucks. Petrone may not have bagged the gold but he did pocket his fattest cash. Petrone was also the reason WSOPC ring winner Jonas Mackoff missed the mark in 8th place.

Recapping the action from where it counts, at the final table. Pudla carried in a massive stack and wasted no time collecting more, especially from the short stacks. He knocked out shorty Bret Carson (9th) on the first hand with sixes holding against Ace-rag. After Mackoff fell to Petrone with Kh10d getting no help on the board against AsQh, Pudla claimed a second victim in the ailing Boban. Petrone matched Pudla in busts by railing Turrisi in 6th place. Pudla continued to play aggro, then upped the ante again, dragging in all of Pablo Silva’s ammo.

By this time Pudla built up a comfortable lead that even after paying out three double ups, he was still chip leader. On the fourth called shove, Pudla railed Petrone. Three-handed, Pudla kept up the pressure leading to both opponents doubling up and losing the lead to Chamani for the first time. Chamani finished off Dejan to enter heads up with a 5:1 lead against Pudla.

Again, Pudla fired away resulting in two double ups to retake the lead. It switched once then back in favor of Pudla. From there, he continued to pull away until Chamani took a stand with 5s6s that failed to connect. Pudla’s Ac5c prevailed thus emerging as the newest WSOP champion.

WSOP #33: $1,111 Every 1 for Covid Relief [Caesars Cares]- Alek Stasiak – $ 343,203.53

Also resuming from opening day troubles was WSOP #33: $ 1,111 Every 1 for Covid Relief [Caesars Cares]. 1,418 players returned with registration still open for another two hours after kick off. This brought the total tally to 2,323 of which only 332 were guaranteed a piece of the $ 2,580,853 prize pool. Nine hours in, the deed was done with Alek Stasiak “astazz” as the envied champion. Stasiak finished off half the players at the final table including 2019 WSOP bracelet winner Abhinav Iyer. Stasiak captured the WSOP gold and $ 343,203.53. This was his largest career cash, very large in fact compared to his three live cashes amounting to a combined $ 6,200.

As soon as the cards were tabled, Stasiak railed Norihiro Otani “orzorz” in 9th place. Following that hand, not much action from Stasiak until it was five handed. During his down time, Lodge railed Stewart Alexander Kilpatrick “Stew_233”, David Jacobo Montoya Mancera “BatSoup789” bumped out Andreas Panayiotis Phouli “Addichip”, then Lodge booted the next two – Evan Parkes “NEONPILS99” and Mancera to amass a stack that dwarfed the remaining three players.

Next significant action awarded Martin Alejandro Arce Ilobera “colinchow” half of Lodge’s chips to bring the Englishman down to earth. Stasiak joined the action by railing Abhinav Iyer “OBellaCiao” which in turn gave him the lead though briefly. Ilobera won a series of pots to claim his stake up top that even after Stasiak railed Lodge, Ilobera was still ahead. Three minutes into heads up, the defining hand came down. Stasiak doubled up with a straight then finished off Ilobera from there.

WSOP #39: $1,500 No Limit Hold’em [ Asia ] – Roberto Romanello – $ 216,212.95

The second Asia friendly TIME ZONE event weighed in at 922 entries for a seven figure prize pool worth $ 1,313,850. Running nearly nine and a half hours, the final table paid out big money to five players who walked away with their largest recorded poker cash. Shipping the mother lode WSOP gold merch and $ 216,212.95 was Roberto Romanello “R Romanello” defeating Niklas Astedt “SpeedyDouble” at heads up. This was Romanello’s first ever WSOP win and 38th WSOP cash.

Entering the final table, Romanello was undoubtedly the most decorated player with over $4 Million in live earnings. On The Hendon Mob, Romanello is ranked #1  in the All Time Money List for Wales. Niklas Astedt “SpeedyDouble” was another strong contender with over $ 1.1 in live winnings. Thomas Alexandre Cazayous was the only player on the hunt for his second WSOP gold.

Astedt carried in the largest stack to the final battle having railed Big Tyler (12th) and amotan (10th). Early action was pot heavy resulting in players tumbling. The first showdown was a pay off to Ravali Krishna, doubled up by Jeffrey Cormier. Crippled down, Cormier lost the rest to Astedt to become the first casualty of the final table. Paul Barnes “Doduckduck” eliminated Orkhan Allahverdiyev “MaxsiMuM”, Romanello emptied out Krishna, then Aleksandr Trofimov “John Marston” finished off Hannes Speiser “Black Fortuna”.

At six remaining, Astedt continued to lead in chips and climbed to half the chips in play on a failed bluff by Cazayous who raised on the river (hand below) and got called out.

After numerous big pots and double ups being won around the table, Cazayous lost his bid for a second title by risking all his chips holding top pair that was way behind Barnes’s full house. Four handed action saw Romanello win a second double up off Astedt. Astedt immediately recovered then sent Trofimov to his knees in 4th place. Three left, there was no shortage of action with shoving as the preferred move. This led to Barnes chunked by Romanello then emptied out by Astedt.

It was pound for pound at heads up with neither player giving an inch. The chip lead pingponged until Romanello landed a double up that crippled Astedt with a full house dominating two pair. Two hands later, Romanello earned his first WSOP victory, one he has been chasing since 2006.

WSOP #40: $2,500 Pot Limit Omaha – Simon Lofberg – $ 224,493.45

Of the six bracelet events running, burning the pocket was the WSOP #40: $2,500 Pot Limit Omaha event. After 3 hours of late registration, 532 ponied up the $ 2,500 buy in to build another juicy seven figure pot amounting to $ 1,263,500. The chase took over nine hours, concluding with Sweden’s Simon Klas Lofberg lifting his first WSOP gold bracelet and a substantial $ 224,493.45 first prize. This was Lofberg’s second known six figure score and first major win.

Picking up the action just before the final table, well known Super High Roller / King’s Casino owner Leon Tsoukernik railed Ross_Geller in 10th place to enter as chip leader. With nearly $ 5 million in live tournament cashes under his belt, Tsoukernik was unquestionably the most accomplished player at the round. While everyone was vying for their first gold bracelet, Shyngis Satubayev “somebodyelse” was the only player sporting a WSOPC ring. He railed Brahman33 in 9th place just before the final table was formed.

Five minutes in, Lofberg froze Benjamin Juhasz “dr100percent” in 8th place. Not bad for the Hungarian who finished one spot higher than his past WSOP achievement. Booted next were Teoh Mingjuen “Paul Teoh” (7tth) and Arvi Vainionkulma “Catman777” (6th). Both players met their end at the hands of Tsoukernik. For the former Teoh, it was another impressive run at the ongoing WSOP Online series. Just days ago, Teoh finished 5th at WSOP #37: 1,050 Bounty Pot Limit Omaha. He has now gained nearly $72K in combined winnings. To bring the field to half, Andreas Torbergsen eliminated Sai Wah Shek “sws79”. Shek has no live cashes posted making this finish that much more special.

Next shove, Tsoukernik doubled up through Torbergsen but quickly lost it to Satubayev. On the third ensuing push, Torbergsen out-kicked Tsoukernik to send him out in 4th place. Heads up arrived at the fall of Satubayev to Lofberg. See hand below.

The last hurdle to glory ran for nearly forty minutes with the lead switching back and forth a few times. Lofberg landed a huge double up that drove his stack to a 9:1 advantage that Torbergsen wasn’t able to recover from. On the final push, Lofberg had the higher straight.
