2021 WSOP bracelet

Ryan "Santasbzack2" Stoker of Washington won his first World Series of Poker bracelet early Monday morning by taking down WSOP.com (NV/NJ) Online Bracelet $888 PLO Crazy 8’s 8-Max [3x Re-entry] for a score worth $95,338. Stoker had to get through a field of 522 entrants before defeating Tony "tonisinz" Sinishtaj during a heads-up battle that finished in under 30 minutes.

The tournament generated a prize pool of $417,600 and it took over 11 hours for a winner to emerge. Stoker entered the eight-handed final table fifth in chips and was able to chip up by knocking out Edward "eddiegood598" Good, who finished in seventh when his two pair was no good against the set of the eventual champion.

Stoker began heads-up play with the chip advantage after eliminating Quang "qpoker205" Ngo when he made two pair against the latter player's overpair. Sinishtaj, who entered the final table with a commanding chip lead, briefly took the lead during heads-up play before Stoker took it right back, and he eliminated Sinishtaj shortly after.

Stoker had to get through a star-studded field to earn his first WSOP bracelet — a field that included Daniel "Dnegs" Negreanu, Yuri "domenicus18" Dzivielevski, Jason "EddieVedder" Koon and Dylan "Iheartcookie" Weisman, who himself won his first bracelet just days ago in Event #28: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha.
