Yesterday, another record-breaking tournament came to an end on PokerOK – the WSOP Online Main Event. A few years ago it set the record for the largest online prize pool, and it was updated again this week.
A total of 6,023 players qualified for the Main Event, with a whopping $28,609,252 staked. As usual, the players made it to the final table last night and came together to complete individual challenges.
Only Russian player Alexander Tymoshenko reached the final table. He started with a strong chip stack but failed twice against Bert Stephens and ended up in fifth place after updating his best cash stack: $853,303.
Stevens held a slight chip lead at the start of the event, but quickly recovered and held 60% of the chips in the 5-Max event.
Burt continued to leave his rivals behind, only extending his lead and challenging Jagan Lee with a quadruple lead. The game lasted two games: in the first game Bert gave his opponent a double chance, and in the second game he won outright.
From the next day it was predicted that Bert would win if he did not compete. At least make it to the final table. girafganger7 got his wish: he can now get a WSOP gold bracelet.
The total first prize award is $2,783,432 – a decrease from previous years due to structural changes.
