Luis "Xapilskinha" Assuncao Garla Wins Event #55: HK$8,000 NLHE Asia Championship (HK$3,551,611)

Luis Assuncao

The 2020 GGPoker World Series of Poker Online Bracelet Events have crowned another champion and it a third player from Brazil to claim what poker enthusiasts from all over the world dream about at night. After nearly 13 hours on the final day of Event #55: HK$8,000 NLHE Asia Championship, it was Luis "Xapilskinha" Assuncao Garla that topped a field of 3,247 entries after defeating poker coach Alexandros "THE Sheriff" Theologis in heads-up to claim the top prize of HK$3,551,611 ($461,709).

Only 479 players had survived their respective starting days and the top 404 finishers received a portion of the HK$24,677,200 ($3,208,036) prize pool, which more than tripled the initial guarantee. After all was done and dusted, Brazil cemented his status as stronghold for deep runs at the WSOP not just live in Las Vegas but also on the GGnetwork once more as the third victory is also accompanied by three runner-up finishes during the first half of the festival so far.

Third-place finisher Kunal "Alex_52" Bhatia came agonizingly close to glory once more as he finished runner-up to Alek "astazz" Stasiak in Event #52: $1,000 No Limit Hold'em just three days ago.

The final table also featured notable names such as Alan "TheCockroach" Schein, Eduards "IlIlIlIliIIl" Kudrjavcevs, and Vladas "Vladiator13" Tamasauskas.

Seth "AbeFroman" Fischer Wins His Maiden Bracelet in Event #56: $1,500 GGMasters WSOP Edition [High Roller] for $444,869

Seth Fischer

Event #56: $1,500 GGMasters WSOP Edition [High Roller] has come to an end after more than 14 hours with Seth "AbeFroman" Fischer closing it out against Arsenii "kastaban" Karmatckii heads-up for his first WSOP bracelet, $444,869, and the WSOP Europe Package. The $2,500,000 guaranteed prize pool was surpassed as 2,153 players turned up for the freezeout format to create a prize purse of $3,068,025.

Fischer came close to winning a bracelet back in 2008 when he finished in second place behind Dario Minieri in Event #11: $2,500 NLHE 6-Handed in 2008 for $330,519. In total, he has cashed 28 times in WSOP events totaling $533,387 and is now close to the $1,000,000-mark.

Karmatckii's best result during a WSOP event came last year when he finished in sixth place for $65,764 in Event #11: $5,000 but has over $1.5 million in live cashes and has now also recorded his biggest online score in over eight years of playing on the virtual felt. Sebastien Grax, Michael "MrFabulous" Nugent, Evaldas "Man14c" Aniulis, Dominykas "MickeyMouse" Mikolaitis, Lukas "VapeNation" Parednis, Clement "Sea View" Tripodi, and Yonatan "malakasos" Basin joined the two players on the final table.
