2021 WSOP: Carlos Chang brings Taiwan’s second series gold; Josh Arieh, Kevin Gerhart, and Brad Ruben win third career bracelet

Taiwan players continue to bring excitement to the Asian region as Carlos Chang wins his first career bracelet at the $2,500 Freezeout No Limit Hold’em. This was Taiwan’s second gold in this series. Two weeks prior, fellow countryman Yen Han “Pete” Chen shipped Online Event #3: $400 NLH Ultra Deepstack. Also locking up bracelets were Josh Arieh, Kevin Gerhart, and Bradley Ruben, each one lifting the third of their career. We’ve got those stories down below.

Event #41: $2,500 Freezeout NL Hold’em – CARLOS CHANG – US$ 364,589

Taiwanese player Carlos Chang outlasted a field of 896 players at Event #41: $2,500 Freezeout No Limit Hold’em to win his first ever gold bracelet and a career high score of US$ 364,589. Chang entered the final day as chip leader and after a hard fought heads up match, he defeated Brady Osterman to earn his maiden WSOP victory. Chang followed in the footsteps of countryman Yen Han “Pete” Chen and James Chen to bring Taiwan its third bracelet. In a brief exchange with the champ, he shared,

“It feels amazing to finally be able take it down after being so close in two FTs in 2015 and one FT in 2019. Not only was it my first bracelet but it was also my biggest cash. I would say that the HU play was the toughest moment. Brady was very loose aggressive, doesn’t like to fold, and applied a lot of pressure with his chip stack. I had to switch my game from No Limit Holdem to Limit Holdem in order to have pot control and grind him down. I wanted to re aggress him but it didn’t work as he was ready to just go all in at any moment, so that wasn’t going to work. He was like a pit bull so I decided to become a poodle and play it back with softness. And it worked perfectly.

I told myself coming to the series that I will play my best without forcing to win every hand instead focusing on playing one hand at a time at the best optimal way. When you know you are behind, just give up and go to the next hand, play balanced and always be aware of the table dynamics. On a side note, I made one crucial mistake and one semi bad call during the final table but was able to keep enough chips to fight back and win it all.”

A confessed poker hobbyist, Chang’s list of poker achievements seemed to say otherwise. Prior to his bracelet win, Chang’s live career earnings amounted to over US$ 1.1 Million with scores dating back to 2008. His first major victory was at the 2012 Asian Poker Tour Macau Main Event for HK$ 1,913,100 (~US$ 246,600), then in 2015 came his first set of WSOP cashes. During that series, he reached the final table of the $1,111 NLH Little One for One Drop, finishing in 5th place. A few months later, Chang was at the final table again, this time at the WSOP Europe Monster Stack event where he placed 3rd. Another deep result was in 2019 where he took 4th at The Closer event. With all of these bracelet teasers, he was bound to lock one up in no time. And he did. The milestone victory sent Chang over US$ 1.5 Million in total tracked live earnings. 

Briefly recapping the event, the 896 player field amassed a prize pool of US$ 1,993,600. Earning portions of the money were series winners Dejuante Alexander (17th), Jeremy Ausmus (19th), Daniel Lazrus (29th), Ran Koller (53rd), and Asian players Tamon Nakamura (33rd), Ye Yuan (51st), Daniel Lee (69th), Christian Pham (101st), Jinho Hong (116th), and Seungmook Jung (122nd). 

The final table consisted of two bracelet winners, Korea’s Sung Joo Hyun and France’s Arthur Conan, Christopher Bastile was decorated with two WSOP circuit rings, and back for his second final table was Quang Ngo who placed 3rd at Online Event #4: $888 PLO Crazy 8’s 8-Handed. Bastille busted 9th to miss the final day. 

Although Chang led at the start, it was Osterman with the early jump to steal command. Hyun’s hunt for a second gold was cut short in 6th place by Conan who then fell to Adrien Delmas in 5th place. By this point, Chang had dropped significantly. Battle for the chip lead was between Osterman and Delmas until Chang eliminated Sergi Reixach. At three handed, the rails grew in size with Team Osterman and Team Delmas roaring. Osterman built a substantial lead while Chang and Delmas fought to stay alive. Chang got the better of Delmas with Jh6h straight flush cracking KcKs on a board 10h9h8h7h9d that eventually sent the Brit packing in 3rd place. 

Heads up opened with Osterman holding the advantage. Chang tightened the gap with a double up then surged ahead with multiple big pots to amass a 3:1 lead. However, Osterman would not go down easy. He overturned the numbers until a crucial boost sent Chang back on top with a flush over two pair. The final hand was soon tabled with 10c7c straight over AhJd brick on a board 6c8d8h6h9h.

Event #39: $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha 8-Handed – JOSH ARIEH – US$ 204,766

Josh Arieh finally scooped up that slippery third bracelet, one he had been hunting down for 15 long years. Arieh bulldozed through the final day of Event #39: $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha 8-Handed, knocking out the last three players. He shipped the US$ 204,766 first prize, boosting his WSOP career earnings to US$ 5.8 Million. 

As a frequent flyer of the annual series, Arieh’s accomplishments date back to 1999 when he won his first bracelet at $3,000 Limit Hold’em. The next five years saw two significant deep runs, the largest was 3rd place at the 2004 $10,000 Main Event World Championship for a whopping career high US$ 2.5 Million payout. Returning for another shot at glory in 2005, he won the $2,000 Pot Limit Omaha event for his second bracelet. From there, it would take a decade and a half, ten final tables, and three runner up finishes before his relentless pursuit for the third gold materialized. 

Recapping his crushing victory, the event attracted 821 entries to build a prize pool of US$ 1,096,035. Many well known pros and decorated players found their way to the money round, however only three bracelet holders reached the final table, Arieh, Tommy Le, and Ivan Deyra. Down to five handed, Gabriel Andrade, who was on his second final table, fell to Robert Blair, then Arieh picked off the next two – Deyra (4th), Blair (3rd) –  to face Le at heads up. Despite Le’s exceptional Pot Limit Omaha accomplishments, Arieh’s 4:1 advantage and momentum stayed intact to clinch the long awaited bracelet.

Event #40: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship – KEVIN GERHART – US$ 361,124

149 saddled up for Event #40: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship to build a prize pool of US$ 1,389,425. Crossing the finish line was Kevin Gerhart who overcame six fellow bracelet holders at the final table to capture his third gold bracelet and a career high payout of US$ 361,124. Also in the round was Jake Schwartz who was on his fourth appearance, which is just one deep run away from matching Phil Hellmuth’s five final tables.

The past couple of years have been golden for the newest champion. In 2019, Gerhart closed out the $1,500 Razz event for his first gold bracelet and first ever six figure payout of US$ 119,054. The following year he clasped his second bracelet at the WSOP Online [USA] PLO 6-Handed. With his latest takedown, he nearly doubled his WSOP earnings to US$ 777,896. 

The heavily decorated final table action got underway after 2x bracelet winner Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier departed in 10th place. Impressively, six players were back at the finals. Four players were on their second appearance, namely Gerhart, David Benyamine, Benny Glaser, and ring winner Eddie Blumenthal; Christopher Vitch was on his third final table, and Schwartz was on his fourth. By the final day, Gerhart led the five remaining players, an advantage he never relinquished. He eliminated 2x winner Brandon Shack-Harris (5th) and Blumenthal (3rd), to face Marco Johnson at heads up who was also seeking his third bracelet. After playing a rotation of variants, Gerhart ousted Johnson at Omaha Hi-Lo to win the coveted gold.

Event #42: $1,500 Razz – BRADLEY RUBEN – US$ 99,188

Bradley Ruben weathered a wild ride at the final table to secure the first Razz event of the series and his third career bracelet. Along with the shine, he pocketed US$ 99,188 to drive his total WSOP earnings to US$ 641K. The victory came just three months after his bracelet win at the WSOP Online [USA] $600 PLO 6-Handed and nearly one year since his first win at the 2020 WSOP Online [International] $1,500 PLO event. 

The Razz event drew 311 entries with each one contributing the US$ 1,500 buy in for a prize pool of US$ 415,185. By Day 3, only 8 remained with four bracelet winners in contention – Bradley Ruben, Yuri Dzivielevski, David “ODB” Baker, and Matt Grapenthien – while Charles Sinn sat in pole position. After the fall of Hassan Kamoei (8th), Ruben’s stack seesawed from mid rank to the top spot then down to shortest stack. However, in between the next two busts, Ruben staged a comeback, surviving an incredible three all ins to outrank Baker and eventually send him packing in 5th place. Brazil’s only hope vanished in 4th place with Dzivielevski cleaned out by Sinn. At three handed, big stacks Sinn and Grapenthien were nearly at par until Ruben broke up the party with successive wins to steal the top spot. On the flip side, Grapenthien went on a steep decline and left in 3rd place. Heads up got underway with chip leader Ruben dominating Sinn throughout to seize his third bracelet in stunning fashion.
