Dan Shak Barely Misses Bracelet; Michael "njnj17" Leib Wins WSOP Online Event #10

Dan Shak

The 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online continued Saturday with Event #10: $333 No-Limit Hold'em, which drew 986 players who rebought 531 times. The 1,517-entry field resulted in a $455,100 prize pool, and after 11 hours of play, it was Michael "njnj17" Leib coming out on top to capture an $81,644.94 top prize and his first gold bracelet.

Leib’s win came four days after he made a deep run in Event #6: $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em, which was good for $5,695. The win was far and away the biggest of Leib’s career as he has $27,797 in prior WSOP cashes and $14,865 in live earnings according to The Hendon Mob.

Final Table Action

Early on at the final table, George "gkon86" Konstantoulakis ran a bluff but got snapped off by Robert "LuckyLuch11" Aronowitz, and then Leib won a big pot with ace-queen against the pocket nines of “MMenz08816” and eights of “Vinnyj88”, who bowed out in eighth and seventh place respectively.

“Diaper_money” exited out in sixth place when their ace-ten was outdrawn on the river by the queen-jack of Aronowitz, and then Michael “helionic” Dyer, who finished third in the 2018 WSOP Main Event for $3.75 million, ran ace-nine into Leib’s Big Slick to fall in fifth place.

Dan “oiltrader513” Shak exited in fourth place when his ace-six suited failed to overcome the pocket sevens of Leib, and then Aronowitz saw his queen-six hold against queen-four to dispatch Richard “3ofspade” Bruner in third place.

Heads-up play began with the final two players dead even in chips, but a set-over-two-pair hand benefitting Leib gave him a monster lead. Not long after, Aronowitz, a social studies teacher from New York playing from Borgata in Atlantic City, committed his short stack with a gutshot straight draw but failed to get there against middle pair.
