Martin Zamani

On Monday, the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online continued with Event #19: $888 PLO Crazy Eights 8-Handed attracted 285 players who rebought 222 times. The 507-entry field resulted in a $405,600 prize pool and after 11 hours of play, it was Martin “bathroomline” Zamani coming out on top to win a $92,598 top prize and his first gold bracelet.

Zamani, who won a WSOP Circuit gold ring in February 2020 when he took down the WSOPC Rio Las Vegas Event #14: $2,200 High Roller for $89,143, has nearly $2.7 million in lifetime live earnings according to The Hendon Mob.

In 2019, Zamani won the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) $25,000 High Roller for a career-high $895,110, and a month later finished fourth in the US Poker Open $100,000 Main Event for $330,000. More recently just two weeks ago, he finished third in the Wynn Summer Classic $3,500 NLH event for $155,995.

Earlier in this series, Zamani finished fifth in Event #15: $5,300 High Roller for $56,400 and fourth in Event #4: $500 NLH Super Turbo for $22,950.

Final Table Action

Event 19 Final Table

The final table actually began with just seven players as Joseph “biueberry” Cheong and Kyle “Vin_Gambini” Bowker busted in eighth and ninth place respectively in the same hand on the bubble.

Loren “BabyJesus” Klein was denied a fifth gold bracelet after getting his stack in with two pair against the straight and nut flush draws of Zamani. The spade flush came in on the turn and the river failed to pair Klein to send him packing in seventh place for $10,221.

Arkadiy “Crocofantos” Tsinis then bowed out in sixth place getting his short stack in with big cards only to see Ryan “Joeyisamush” Depaulo roll over pocket aces and hold. John “thirteen” Del Rossi then eliminated the short-stacked Jose "Bobbybaldwin" Barbero in fifth place before Depaulo followed him out the door in fourth.

Depaulo, who famously won an online gold bracelet last summer while playing from a New Jersey Whole Foods parking lot, flopped the nut straight with a flush redraw while Zamani flopped the same straight with two pair. The latter filled up on the river and Depaulo’s quest for a second bracelet came up three spots short.

Three-handed play saw the chip lead exchange hands several times, but eventually, Del Rossi fell in third with pocket kings into Zamani’s flopped set. The latter then took a slight lead into heads-up play against Shawn “Shadysteem” Stroke, but despite them both being deep, it didn’t take long for the final hand to play out.

It happened when Stroke got it in with kings only to see Zamani table aces. The bigger pocket pair held and Stroke had to settle for second place.

The 2021 WSOP Online continues on Tuesday with Event #20: $3,200 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller. PokerNews will be live reporting and streaming the action, so be sure to join us then.
