The 2020 World Series of Poker Online continued on Wednesday with Event #15: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Max attracting a 663-entrant field which created a $629,850 prize pool. After 12 hours of play, it would be Oregon-native Guy “PhilLaak” Dunlap collecting his first WSOP bracelet and the $133,780 first-place prize.
The 2020 World Series of Poker Online bracelet event final tables are streamed live nightly on the Poker Central YouTube channel, PokerGO Facebook page and World Series of Poker Twitch channel. Commentary is provided by David Tuchman. Skip ahead to the action and watch both final tables in the embedded players below.
The second Pot-Limit Omaha tournament of the series would see both an increase in buy-in from $600 to $1,000, along with the table moving from six-handed to eight-handed play. After “wippitywap” was eliminated on the money bubble in 100th place, the likes of WSOP Online bracelet winners Michael “MiguelFiesta” Lech, Nathan “surfbum” Gamble, and Robert “bustinballs” Kuhn, along with WSOP bracelet winners Erik “NW1Time” Seidel and Calvin “projector52” Anderson all fell short of the final table.
Todd “Chi.T.420” Sladek began the final table as chip leader before two-time WSOP bracelet winner Anthony “heheh” Zinno fell first when his set of aces were outdrawn by Matt “jacksup” Matros’ flush draw. Sladek then eliminated both Matros and Blake “ShamPainPopn” Whittington in seventh and sixth-place respectively before Keith “ThxSimGod” Ferrera exited in fifth. Jacob “Bandit275” Powers fell in fourth before Sladek’s run ended in third-place as Dunlap entered heads-up play with Shane “danish01” Daniels holding a near two-to-one advantage. In the first Pot-Limit Omaha event of the series, Daniels reached heads-up play also but would have to settle for second-place behind Gamble. Unfortunately, Daniels would be denied once more of a WSOP bracelet when he was all-in preflop against Dunlap’s aces that improved to a flush.
