Ryan 'Im.sorry' Torgerson takes WSOP Monsterstack Bracelet and $172,361

It only took a day for Ryan Im.Sorry Torgerson to get over the disappointment of missing out on WSOP gold in event 9 of the summer online schedule, bouncing back to land the coveted bracelet in event 10, winning $172,361 to go with it…

Torgerson had finished runner-up to Ron 'McDaddy15' McMillen barely 24 hours earlier in the $1k NLHE 6-max, and was back for more in the $600 No-Limit Hold'em MonsterStack.

Some 2074 entries, with 569 rebuys among the 1505 unique runners, produced a prizepool of $1,119,960 – the first to top $1million in the series so far.

Among those grabbing a share of that money were Erik 'NW1Time' Seidel (321st for $895) and Jason 'haderade' Somerville (51st for  $3,023), with Ron 'MacDaddy15' McMillen putting in another fine run, finishing 65th for $2,127).

By the time the final table was set, there were some recognisable names mixed in with the anonymous online nicknames – including the legendary Sam Grizzle.

The man who punched Phil Hellmuth in the mouth in a carpark dustup many years ago quietly moved into the chiplead, ousting Brent grebnrets Roberts in 6th 

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

Grizzle: A♣ K♣
Roberts: 8♦ 8♠

Flop: 6♣ 5♦ 3♠
Turn: 7♣
River: A♥

That river beat would return to haunt Grizzle as the final three battled for the huge prizemoney, Brandon 'Omni27' Ienn calling Grizzle’s small blind shove.

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

Ienn: 10♣ 10♦
Grizzle: Q♦ J♥

Flop: Q♣ 6♠ 2♣
Turn: 8♣
River: 10♠

That meant third place and $77,725 for Grizzle, and another heads-up showdown for Torgerson, again holding a 2-1 chiplead.

That’s where the similarities ended however, as five minutes later he had bagged the title after Ienn failed to hit his numerous outs…

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

Torgerson: A♥ 8♦
Ienn: A♦ 7♠

Flop: 4♠ 5♦ 3♠
Turn: 10♠
River: 10♣
