Bryan Piccioli

The 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online continued Monday with Event #12: $500 No-Limit Hold'em Turbo Deepstack, which saw 654 players who rebought 305 times to create a 959-entry field and a $431,550 prize pool.

After just seven hours of play, poker pro Bryan "Pellepelle" Piccioli emerged victorious to capture the $83,332.30 top prize and his second gold bracelet. It comes more than eight years after his first when he won the 2013 WSOP Asia-Pacific Event #1: A$1,100 NLH Accumulator. He also won a WSOPC gold ring in a Online Circuit event back in February 2020.

Piccioli, who won $1.675 million for finishing sixth in the 2017 WSOP Main Event, had more than $4.5 million in live lifetime earnings according to The Hendon Mob.

Piccioli’s road to victory including a tough final table with four different former WSOP Main Event finalists, himself included.

Final Table Action

Given the fast and shallow nature of the tournament, it didn’t take long for Jason “qigong” Werrell to bow out in ninth place after his ace-four failed to hold against the king-eight suited of Darren “darrenelias” Elias. Not long after, 2018 WSOP Main Event third-place finisher Michael “helionic” Dyer busted in eight losing with king-six against the jacks of Piccioli.

Piccioli then got lucky with king-deuce to crack the queens of “Aceofspades3” before Elias took care of Matthew "peepeepoopoo" Paoletti when his eight-seven suited made a flush against ace-ten.

Despite winning that hand, Elias was the next to go after his king-queen failed to get luck against Piccioli’s Big Slick. From there, Ye “yuan365” Yuan, who finished third in Event #1: $500 Big 500 Kick-Off for $46,144 and last December placed fifth in the WSOP Domestic Main Event for $286,963, ran queen-eight smack dab into the aces of Daniel “spleen” Fellner to exit in fourth place for $25,893.

Fellner then lost with ace-jack to the pocket kings of Piccioli, who began heads-up play with a seven-million chip lead over Dan “Feeltheflow” Sindelar, who finished seventh in the 2014 WSOP Main Event for more than $1.2 million.

Sindelar managed a double to take the chip lead, but Piccioli bounced back by doubling with Big Slick against ten-eight suited. Two hands later, Piccioli put the final nail in Sindelar’s coffin.
