2021 WSOP: Kevin Gerhart wins second series title for career bracelet #4; Cole Ferraro and Eelis Parssinen seize maiden bracelets

No shortage of outstanding achievements at the 52nd World Series of Poker as three more players were added to the list of champions. One of the biggest stories was Kevin Gerhart who captured a second title in this series for his fourth career bracelet. He became the second player to accomplish this, following in Anthony Zinno’s footsteps. The spotlight also shined brightly on newcomer Cole Ferraro whose exceptional run resulted in a dream first bracelet, one he was denied just two weeks prior in second place. Ferraro is now the frontrunner in the No Limits Velo leaderboard. Another first time bracelet winner was Finland’s Eeelis Parssinen who became the first player from his country to strap the gold at the series. We’ve got those stories down below including the WSOP Player of the Year update where Jake Schwartz has taken the lead followed by Gerhart

While many return year after year in hopes of clasping that coveted first gold, for some it only takes a first visit. Such was the case for newcomer Cole Ferraro who took down Event #61: $600 Deepstack Championship No Limit Hold’em to seize his first bracelet and a career high payout of US$ 252,491. This win came just two weeks after he placed second at Event #26: $1,000 No Limit Hold’em. Currently, Ferraro has five WSOP cashes amounting to US$ 392,702, a fantastic start for a first timer at the annual series. He zoomed straight to the top of the No Limits Velo leaderboard. Interviewed by PokerNews, Ferraro said, 

I moved out to Las Vegas in May, after I graduated college I got a part-time job and played about four to five times a week. This trip to the World Series was a trial of sorts, but given everything that has happened over these two weeks I think it will supersede my other job. It’s just so surreal, this being my first World Series of Poker, I just never expected anything like a first place when I came out here.

The three day event drew 3,916 entries for a prize pool of US$ 1,997,160. Among the top 100 players earning a chunk were a handful of Asian players. Running the deepest was India’s Dhaval Mudgal who finished in 30th place for US$ 7,120. Others in the top 100 were Shuchi Chamaria (57th) Wai Kit Lo (61st), Lee Ci (68th), Junyeob Song (75th), Nana Sanechika (81st), Kazuyoshi Miyashita (82nd), and Nipun Java (92nd). 

At the final table, every player was seeking their first gold bracelet. Eventual runner up, Sami Rustom stayed ahead for the first half until Ferraro railed Richard Dixon (5th) to jump out front then pushed further ahead by eliminating Bary Lybaert in 4th place. The lead didn’t hold as Rustom sent Sean Dunleavy packing in 3rd place with a flush over trips. At heads up, Rustom widened his lead, but after several costly pots, the positions reversed with Ferraro up 2.5:1. From there, the young gun closed it out with pocket tens over pocket fours.

Winning one bracelet is already quite an achievement, but to win two in the same series, that is truly exceptional and rare. Ten days ago, Kevin Gerhart shipped Event #40: H.O.R.S.E. for his third career bracelet, then just last night, he overcame the 725 entry field of Event #62: $1,500 PLO Hi-Lo 8 or Better 8-Handed to secure his second bracelet in this series, which was the fourth of his career. The only other player to achieve this at the ongoing series was Anthony Zinno. Along with the gold, Gerhart collected his seventh cash amounting to US$ 186,789 to bring his total WSOP career earnings to US$ 969K. Aside from his glistening jewelry box of four bracelets, Gerhart also has one series circuit ring. 

The event paid out US$ 967,875 to to the top 109 places. Japan’s Tamon Nakamura made his final table debut after five prior deep finishes. He exited 9th for his largest WSOP career score of US$ 14,215. Also at the finals were WSOP decorated players – 3x ring winner Dylan Wilkerson, and 1x ring winners Alexander Orlov and Michael Trivett who was on his second final table. For the most part, Gerhart led throughout the hunt, eliminating Trivett (7th), Roman Hrabec (6th), Sterling Lopez (4th), and Matthew Kaplan (3rd) to face Dirksen at heads up. Dirksen dropped to nearly 2:1 however recovered spectacularly to take the lead away from Gerhart. Dirksen’s rise was fleeting as Gerhart quickly reclaimed it then closed it out for his second series victory.
