The 2020 World Series of Poker Online and Event #22: $500 No-Limit Hold’em Turbo Deepstack attracted a 1,579-entrant field that created a $710,550 prize pool. After roughly seven hours of play, Allan “Treeoflife” Cheung collected his first WSOP bracelet and the $120,083 first-place prize.

WSOP bracelet winner Giuseppe “Pantalette” Pantaleo was eliminated on the money bubble in 249th place before fellow WSOP bracelet winners Ryan “Adopt_aDogg0” Leng, Max “MaxSparrow” Pescatori, Layne “scoop87” Flack, Ben “WhyIsGamora” Yu, Tony “Panoramic” Dunst, Joseph “blueberry” Cheong, Jeff “NedrudRelyt” Madsen, Scott “BudLightLime” Hempel, David “Twizzlers” Prociak, Anthony “heheh” Zinno, , Ryan “Protential” Laplante, Robert “bustinballs” Kuhn, Daniel “DNegs” Negreanu, Brett “furofakind” Shaffer, Calvin “projector52” Anderson, and Mike “mouth123” Matusow all exited before the final table.
WPT Champions Club member Brian “JackBogle” Altman held a sizeable chip lead as the final table began. Robert “Nvrstsfied” Natividad would be the first to be eliminated when his pocket nines lost a race to the ace-queen of Myles “Shipthemoney” Kotler who finished runner-up in Event #18. Both Kara “theLMT90” Denning and Derek “this1smyvice” Salgals were the next two to go before Louie “pongpong” Valderrama would fall in sixth place when his ace-jack failed to improve against Daniel “juice” Buzgon’s pocket jacks. Last week Terrell “heezahustla” Cheatham won Event #16, and his run at becoming the first two-time WSOP Online winner this series would fall short in fifth place as he ran his ace-nine into Kotler’s ace-queen.
Both Buzgon and Altman would be the next to hit the rail as Kotler entered heads-up play holding a near two-to-one advantage over Cheung. Cheung only eliminated one player at the final table – and it would be the most important one. After doubling into the lead, Cheung delivered the final dagger when his ace-seven held true against Kotler’s ten-eight suited. Cheung spiked an ace on the turn, and with Kotler collected his second runner-up finish for the series, Cheung was crowned the Event #22 champion.
