Grech Finds Turbo Success
Grech took down Online Event #14: $400 No-Limit Hold'em Turbo after defeating Amit "rocketsbaby" Makhija in heads-up play for his first bracelet and the $107,504 up top.
It's the biggest recorded score of his career, besting his $57,029 and $51,502 paydays from this summer's Online Event #3 and Online #20. The Californian finished in fourth and fifth, respectively, in those tournaments. Grech also came close to a bracelet on the live felt last year, where he achieved another fourth-place finish in Event #23 $3,000 Limit Hold'em - Six-Handed for $41,191.
The latest result marks his eighth cash of the 2023 WSOP, and Grech is also still in contention for the Main Event, as he bagged 149,000 from Day 2abc.
Grech spoke to PokerNews after the win, and felt a sense of relief after falling short a few times before.
"I’ve had a few close calls over the past few years in the online bracelet events. It definitely feels amazing to get one," said the newly minted bracelet winner. "Big shoutout to my family, friends, and amazing girlfriend for always supporting me through the highs and the lows."
Grech pointed out that with the nature of turbo tournaments, or any tournament, you have to run amazingly and gave an example when two tables remained.
"I got there big time with 18 left when the button jammed for ten big blinds with eights, we rejammed AxJx for 12 big blinds. The big blind also woke up with AxKx. (I) flopped the jack and held and just never looked back."
Grech also mentioned that he had ran a big bluff on the final table that if it didn't get through, his pursuit of the bracelet would have been over there and then.
The turbo event attracted 1,178 entries and saw a further 589 rebuys to make the $636,120 prize pool. Of those entries, just 248 players made the money with the min-cash set at $636.

Gaspari Wins $1,000 NLH Championship
Yesterday's action on WSOP.com saw Gaspari defeat Matthew "Sucra71" Gillingham in the final two to become the most recent online bracelet winner for $224,816.
Gaspari has found success under the WSOP umbrella before, picking up two online Circuit rings in 2022. He has 24 WSOP cashes, all coming from the virtual felt.
Event #15: $1,000 NLH Championship saw 883 players rebuy 482 times, which resulted in a 1,365-entry field that awarded its $1,228,500 prize pool to the top 180 finishers.
$50,000 High Roller winner Leon "ShepelSimp" Sturm made the final table and bowed out in eighth-place for $21,622. 2023 PCA Main Event fifth-place finisher Alexandre "raking-even" Raymond also put in a deep run and came third for just shy of six-figures.
Raymond made one of the folds of the year in The Bahamas after he quickly and correctly laid down a full house on the final table.
