The 2020 World Series of Poker Online on GGPoker continued on Saturday with the Event #54: $10,00 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em Championship reaching the final four players. The capped 128-player field created a prize pool of $1,241,600, and when play concluded for the day, Michael Addamo, David Peters, Alyssa MacDonald, and Michael Zhang were all guaranteed $124,160 in prize money as all eyes were on the $360,480 first-place prize, added WSOP Europe package, and the WSOP bracelet.
Some of the players to fall shy of the money included WSOP bracelet winners Chris Ferguson, James Chen, Shawn Buchanan, Yuri Dzivielevski, Kristen Bicknell, Brandon Adams, Kahle Burns, Daniel Dvoress, Juha Helppi, Danny Tang, Mark Radoja, Dominik Nitsche, Craig Varnell, Joao Vieira, Stephen Chidwick, Fedor Holz, and Erik Seidel.
The final 16 players would all finish in-the-money, and play would continue as Bertrand Grospellier (16th), Daniel Negreanu (13th), Aaron Van Blarcum (12th), Mike Leah (11th), and Sergi Reixach (10th) all collected cashes before the final four was reached.
|Heads-Up Championship Final Four|
|Michael Addamo||Australia||vs||Michael Zhang||United Kingdom|
|Alyssa MacDonald||Canada||vs||David Peters||United States|
In a field full of high roller regulars and savvy tournament pros, the likes of Addamo, Zhang, and Peters aren’t surprising. However, it is MacDonald’s name that may stand out. The Canadian online player has just over $6,000 in lifetime tournament earnings – but is now two heads-up matches away from winning a WSOP bracelet.

Zhang is also looking to break through to win his first WSOP bracelet and add to his $3.48 million in lifetime tournament earnings. Peters won his first WSOP bracelet at the 2016 WSOP in a $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em event, and currently sits seventh on the All Time Money List with over $33.7 million in lifetime tournament earnings. Addamo is searching for his third WSOP bracelet – with his first two coming in 2018 – and sits third on the Australia All Time Money List with over $8.3 million in lifetime tournament earnings.
The final four players will return on Saturday, August 15, at 2 p.m. ET to play down until the champion is crowned – and the conclusion of play will be streamed on Poker Central’s YouTube and Facebook channel from 2:30 p.m. ET.
