Event recap

It took seven hours to bring the field down to the final four tables. Leading up to the final table, Poland’s Marcin “DGoggins” Lesniewski 3h

3c set delivered a double bust to India’s gm-ind Ah10d and 0rangeBlood_412 AdQh. Natural8 Team Hot Pete Chen followed (22nd) with 6c6d outdrawn by Barak Wsibrod’s 10dQh on a board Kd10s8dKsAs. Taiwan’s Meimei also knocked out two heads simultaneously, Croatia’s “paco01” (16th) and England’s Jack Salter (15th). At 12 remaining, the Indian Anshul “ISILDUR99” Rajput railed Italy’s Alessandro “MonkeyD93” Pichierri (12th) then plummeted when his AQo missed the board against Canada’s KanielOutis’s pocket Jacks. Argentina’s Leandro Bianchini took the rest however, a three-way showdown sent Bianchini packing next. The final table was formed at the fall of DGoggins to Israel’s “opener”.
Wsopscos 2WSOP Super Circuit Online Series RING #13: $210 Bounty 6 Max final table

Kicking off the final chase, Malaysia’s PenangCKT came out strong with four quick pots but after losing a showdown against KanielOutis, PenangCKT was crippled then eliminated. The next two shoves brought the rise and fall of Meimei555. Meimei555 avoided the rail when pocket sixes improved to a set to crack KanielOutis’s pocket Aces, but on the next hand, no luck there. Israel’s “opener” shipped it all with Qc

Qs over JcJh to deliver the bust and take the lead.

Israel’s “opener” went on to amass over half the chips in play by dusting India’s Anab “ChampakBhoomiya” Naiyer (5th) with Ad

Ah diamond nut flush over Qs9d lower flush. To reach heads-up, Luxembourg’s “futomaki” finished off KanielOutis (4th) then NuttedDreams AcJh outdrew futomaki’s 10c10s on a board 4sJs6c3s5d. Israel’s “opener” was ahead by a wide 44 bb lead. As blinds continued to climb, so did “opener” while NuttedDreams dropped as low as 5 bb. Thirty minutes in, the tides shifted. NuttedDreams tightened the gap then took the lead. Both players battled for control, “opener” was up by 4 bb when the next called shove arrived. NuttedDreams with AcJd, opener with Kd9h, the board ran 5h2s7hQh4c. NuttedDreams scooped up a monster double up then shipped the rest and the coveted ring on the next hand.
