The 2020 World Series of Poker Online on GGPoker continued on Tuesday with the Event #79: $25,00 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em [People’s Choice Event] reaching the final four players. The 127-player field created a prize pool of $3,111,500, and when play concluded for the day, Sergi Reixach, Brunno Botteon, Oktay Kahyaoglu, and GGPoker ambassador Fedor Holz were all guaranteed $311,150 in prize money as all eyes were on the $1,070,250 first-place prize, an added WSOP Europe package, and the WSOP bracelet.
Some of the players to fall short of the money include WSOP bracelet winners Enrico Camosci, James Chen, Julien Martini, Erik Seidel, Phil Hellmuth, Mike Leah, Ajay Chabra, Ivan Luca, Galen Hall, Danny Tang, Bertrand Grospellier, David Peters, Daniel Dvoress, Stephen Chidwick, Kristin Bicknell, Joao Vieira, Michael Addamo, Chris Ferguson, Scott Seiver, Adrian Mateos, Dominik Nitsche, Kahle Burns, and Daniel Negreanu. The final eight players would all finish in-the-money as Aaron Van Blarcum, Stuart Wallensteen, Justin Bonomo, and Jason McConnon fell short in their match-ups but collected $194,469 in prize money.
