Final Table Action

Event 30 Final Table

Drew “dudeguydrew” O’Connell began the final table with just over a single big blind, so it was no surprise to see him fall in the very first hand. Not long after, the short-stacked James “Danfriel” Gilbert got shoved his last five bigs from the small blind with ten-five only to have Joshua “Kenjiboi7” Faris call with ace-nine from the big. Gilbert failed to get lucky and had to settle for a fifth-place finish.

Before the level concluded, two-time bracelet winner Nipun “javatini” Java bowed out after three-bet jamming the big blind with ace-deuce suited only to see Halverson, who had raised from the button, call with pocket tens. A third ten on the turn sent Java out the door in fourth place.

Next to go was WSOP bracelet winner Anthony "Nowb3Athat" Spinella, who was coolered after flopping two pair jacks and sevens only to see Faris roll over a bigger two pair jacks and nines.

That allowed Faris to take a 3:2 chip lead into heads-up play against Halverson, but on the very first hand between the two the latter won a race to double. The duo battled back-and-forth for a little bit before the final hand in which Faris got it in with top pair of aces with a queen kicker, which was no good against the two pair nines and eights of Halverson.

The 2021 WSOP Online continues on Friday with Event #31: $500 NLH Summer Saver. PokerNews will be live reporting and streaming the action, so be sure to join us then.
