As we reported last week, the big opening night of GG’s WSOP schedule came apart at the seams, a combination of huge numbers, critical bugs and suspected DDOS attacks.

Since then, everything appears to have been running smoothly, and yesterday saw event 32 – the $100 buy-in Opener and event 33 – the $1,111 buy-in Every 1 for Covid Relief (Caesar's Cares) - played to a conclusion.

The Opener had seen 29,306 entries across numerous opening flights, that number cut down close to the 3000 or so paid spots who returned yesterday.

Come the final table and four players would be looking at 6-figure cashes, Argentina’s Ramino Perrone taking the first of those for $100,644 and Dejan Kaladjurdjevic from Montenegro taking 4th place and $141,189.

Heads-up saw South African pro Rohit Songjoy Chamani taking on Marcelo Marolo Jakovljevic Pudla, the former with over 1 billion chips, but Pudla fought back, bagging the bracelet with the following hand…

Pudla: A♣ 5♣

1 Marcelo Marolo Jakovljevic Pudla $265,880

7 Boban  Zhivkovikj $36,455
8 Jonas LobyPewis Mackoff $25,986
9 Bret ShowerTime Carson $18,524

Play moved on to event 33, the $1,111 buy-in Every 1 for Covid Relief (Caesar's Cares) which had attracted a field of 2,323 entries, making a prizepool of $2,580,853.

Among the players who failed to cash were Fedor Holz, Kristen Bicknell and Steve O’Dwyer, while the list of those who hit the money included Bertrand Grospelier, Mikita Badziakouski and Welsh Wizard Roberto Romanello.

Romanello would go on to produce the goods in the $1500 NLHE yesterday, bagging his first WSOP gold bracelet and completing poker’s triple crown.

The battle for the title came down to a heads-up battle between Canada’s Alek 'astazz' Stasiak and Argentina’s Martin 'colinchow' Ilobera, the final hand a coin flip…

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

Alek 'astazz' Stasiak: A♥ 6♠

Stasiak had landed WSOP gold and a $343,203 payday, while Ilobera took home almost $¼million as runner-up.

To round off an exceptionally busy day on the GG Network’s WSOP schedule, Event #40, the $2,500 PLO bracelet tournament, pulled in 532 entries and produced a $1,263,500 prizefund.

‘Loose Leon’ Tsoukernik fought his way to the final table, the Kings Casino boss a regular highstakes PLO player, although he would have to settle for 4th place and $88,412.

His eventual conqueror, Norway’s Andreas Torbergsen, found himself heads-up for the bracelet against fellow Scandinavian, Simon Lofberg from Sweden, the latter disposing of Kazakhstan’s Shyngis 'somebodyelse' Satubayev. The finale saw king-jack high prove enough for Lofberg to lift the title, all the chips going in on the flop and all the big draws missing…
