WSOP gold bracelet winner Andres "chokitin" Korn added a gold ring to his jewelry box after defeating Yannick "ProbierES" Schumacher heads-up in the Event #8: $800 Deepstack No Limit Hold'em Championship to win the $163,389 top prize.

Korn is no stranger to big wins with nearly $2.1 million in cashes including his bracelet win in 2017 in WSOP Event #56: $5,000 No Limit Hold'em for $618,285.

Rafi "CheckYoMama" Elharar (third - $91,880), Gabriel Schroeder (fifth - $51,668), Patrick "Nelepo10" Ulyssea (sixth - $38,745), Vlad-Stefan "HaiFanFan" Lache (eighth - $21,788), and Katie "ShantayUStay" Lindsay (ninth - $16,389) all advanced to the final table but fell short of winning the coveted gold ring.

The $1 million guarantee in this event was smashed with 1,545 entries generating a $1,174,200 prize pool.

Aleksey "somebody444" Churbanov Wins Event #9: $525 Bounty Deepstack ($69,143)

Russia's Aleksey "somebody444" Churbanov won the ninth WSOP Super Circuit Online Series gold ring in Event #9: $525 Bounty Deepstack No Limit Hold'em at GGPoker for $69,143 ($33,083 prize + $36,059 bounty) in a marathon of an event lasting 10 1/2 hours from start to finish.

Churbanov was heads-up against Jonas "LobyPewis" Mackoff, who was vying for his third career win. If Mackoff pulled off the win, he would have become the first two-time gold ring winner of this festival as last Saturday he shipped Event #5: $315 BOUNTY GIANT No Limit Hold'em for $71,140 and his second ring.

While Mackoff was unable to capture his second title this festival he did walk away for a second straight week with a monster prize as his runner-up performance in Event #9 was worth $47,901 including $14,899 in bounties.

Churbanov and Mackoff weren't the only big names at the final table as Pablo "PibeCaslaa" Roman (fourth - $28,341), Esteban "siemprechill" Gomez (fifth - $21,768), Scott "Abracadabraa" Hill (sixth - $22,996), Artem "BlackfileOK" Tuliupa (seventh - $10,713), and Abhishek "muckmuckgo" Goindi (eighth - $10,449) all collected five-figure hauls at the final table.

The event itself was another success story for GGPoker with 1,605 entries generating a $802,500 prize pool to obliterate the $500,000 guarantee slapped on this event.

David "Alw4ysinduc3" Vinayagamoorthy Wins the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series Event #10 HUNDRED STACK ($84,831)

David "Alw4ysinduc3" Vinayagamoorthy entered his name in poker's history books after navigating through a massive field of 8,404 entries to win the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series Event #10: HUNDRED STACK for $84,831 at GGPoker after defeating Markus Prinz (second - $63,610) in heads-up play.

The 8,404 entries witnessed the prize pool jump up to $773,168 to smash the tournament's $500,000 guarantee. The tournament was a marathon lasting more than 11 hours and the final table had to be rolled back six blind levels to assure an average of 40 big blinds per GGPoker's network rules for final tables with players just 12 blinds deep on the final table bubble.

Park Yu "FacelessMan" Cheung was the first player eliminated at the final table in ninth place for $8,483 with "Dragon97" (sixth - $20,115), "fishnbnin" (seventh - $15,084), "AFS-20" (eighth - $11,312) all hitting the rail soon after.

Vinayagamoorthy held the lead at this point and never looked back. He eliminated "I4betUfoldD" (fourth - $35,771), and Sean "quackhouse" Prendiville (fifth - $26,824) before Prinz ousted Curtis "ProdigyC" Lim in third place for $47,701.

Vinayagamoorthy held a nearly 3:1 chip advantage during heads-up play and eliminated Prinz on a cooler when his ace-seven got there against Prinz' snowmen.
