Panka Captures First WSOP Bracelet; Double Delight for Papazian

Dominik Panka WSOP Online 2021

Two more champions have been crowned in the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online on GGPoker, with both players familiar faces to the poker world.

Former EPT champion Dominik Panka became Poland's third-ever bracelet winner, while Alexandru Papazian clinched his second bracelet in the Crazy Eights, four years after winning the live version of the event.

The WSOP Online continues this weekend with the final table of the Main Event, currently led by Edson Tsutsumi Jr.

Dominik Panka Wins Maiden Gold Bracelet in Event #28: $2,100 Bounty Championship


A new first-time champion has been crowned during the 2021 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events. Out of a field of 1,064 entries in Event #28: $2,100 Bounty Championship No-Limit Hold'em, it was Dominik Panka who prevailed and collected his maiden gold bracelet.

The tournament created a prize pool of $2,128,000 and Panka earned the biggest slice of it for $185,228 after defeating China's Fengdian "Shandongmenghu" Wang in a short-lived heads-up duel.

Prior to his victory, the 30-year old had 14 WSOP related cashed to his name for more than $126k in total. However, in the live poker scene, Panka has already cashed for more than $3.1 million which puts him in third place on the all-time money list for his home country. It was also the third WSOP gold bracelet for a player from Poland during the ongoing online series after the victories of Bartlomiej "chester20o" Swieboda and Kacper Pyzara.
