Four other events also took place as four new WSOP bracelet winners were crowned.
Alexander Stacey Wins $300 Monster Stack for $127,660
The Event #61: $300 Monster Stack No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed kicked off Saturday action on GGPoker, and attracted 3,491-entrants and created a prize pool of $973,989 that paid the top 440 finishers.
Some players finishing in-the-money included Michiel Van Elsacker, Bryan Paris, Alex Foxen, Roberto Romanello, Connor Drinan, Jack Salter, Patrick Tardif, Luke Martinello, and Charles La Boissonniere. Steve O’Dwyer entered the final table as chip leader but finished in seventh-place as it would be Alexander “MightyWarior” Stacey defeating Craig “Tonkaiktomni” Lecompte heads-up to win the $127,660 first-place prize and the third WSOP bracelet from the United Kingdom during GGPoker’s WSOP Online.
Bradley Ruben Captures $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha and First WSOP Bracelet
The Event #62: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha was the first event on Sunday, and it attracted 990 entrants and created a $1,410,750 prize pool.

After just a few hands, Eldabach would be all in with an overpair against Ruben’s flush draw.
