Allen 'Acnyc718' Chang wins Bracelet and $161,286 as Matusow Loses the Plot Again

Allen Chang, aka Acnyc718, lifted his first-ever WSOP bracelet and lifetime best score of $161,286 as the 5th event of the online summer series played out to a finish…

By: Andrew Burnett

The $1000 buy-in NLHE Freezeout pulled in 854 entries on, making the prizepool $811,300 and ensuring a six-figure payout up top.

One player who lasted all of 10 minutes was Mike 'The Mouth' Matusow, joining the event at the two-hour mark and almost immediately falling to pocket aces.

♠ ♣ ♥ ♦

Matusow: A♦ Q♣
Wolverine17: A♣ A♥
Board: 9♥ 4♥ 10♠ 2♠ J♥

That sparked an onstream rant from Matusow for a perceived slowroll, and a search for Wolverine17’s real-life identity that bore fruit, although Megan Milburn wasn’t phased by Matusow’s nasty attack on her…

Meanwhile, there was poker to be played and a bracelet to be won, and the champion from event 2 on the 31-tournament schedule, Louis 'PokeThese' Lynch, gave it a go.

An eventual 50th place finish and $2,758 was a nice dessert for last week’s champ, but there were bigger prizes to be had, 5-figures for reaching the final table.

The entire event took more than ten hours, and finally came down to a heads-up battle between Allen 'Acnyc718' Chang and Philip 'tomte' Yeh.

♠ ♣ ♥ ♦

A short-stacked Yeh shoved and Chang was happy to call…

Yeh: 8♣ 6♣
Chang: Q♥ J♠
Board: 4♥ J♦ 7♣ 4♣ 2♦

Yeh had missed his saving gutshot and flush draws and that meant Allen Chang had done it – a WSOP bracelet and $161,286!
