WSOP Weekly: Canadian, French, Chinese Players Score Titles To Close Out Series At GGPoker

The World Series of Poker Online bracelet hunting wrapped up on Sunday at GGPoker. The site offered multiple events that carried more than $6 million in guaranteed prize pools. 

Since WSOP in Las Vegas was postponed this past summer, the online site hosted 33 bracelet events from Aug. 1 to Sept. 12. Players from all over the world chased gold bracelets from their laptops or mobile devices.

The last few events produced some winners from France, Canada, and China.

Event 31: ¥815 Zodiac Autumn Festival (Sept. 12)

This event drew in huge numbers on Sunday with more than 7,000 entries for a ¥5,275,593 ($6.2 million) prize pool. In the end, China’s Henry “Coke@macu” Luo took the bracelet.

Luo, a Hong Kong resident, scored ¥563,257, which equates to over $87,000. Luo defeated Argentina’s Martin “titan64” Pochat heads-up for the title. For second place, Pochat scored ¥422,381 ($65,543).

Event 32: $210 Bounty Double (Sept. 12)

With over $2 million in guaranteed prize money and bounties on the line, players were eager to get in on the action. The Double Bounty fun attracted 14,162 entries for a $2.8 million prize pool, crushing the guarantee.

Canadian Ruslan “Sovs20” Rishko came out on top – winning $282,586 and his first bracelet. Brazilian players have dominated much of the GGPoker series all month and they continued to make it tough for Rishko. Three players from Brazil made the final table. 

Event 33: $500 The Closer (Sept. 12)

GGPoker crushed yet another guarantee and closed out the series with a nice-sized prize pool.  With 7,103 players ponying up $500 each, this tournament produced a prize pool topping $3 million.

France’s Arnaud Enselme captured the final bracelet in the series. He cashed multiple times during the series, but the $360,223 for first place takes the cake.

Enselme defeated Japan’s Kazuki Ikeuchi in the heads-up match. Japan had three seats locked up at the final table and Ikeuchi raked in $270,127 for his runner-up finish. 

Now that the GGPoker series has concluded, the bracelet hunting shifts to the Rio in Las Vegas. The annual live series runs Sept. 30 to Nov. 23 with 88 bracelet events.
