Anson Tsang Adds Another WSOP Victory

In what turned out to be a final table of just under four hours, the next winner has been crowned in the 2020 GGPoker World Series of Poker (WSOP) Winter Online Circuit. It was a familiar name that accumulated all the chips eventually in Event #10: $400 CHRISTMAS PLOSSUS as Yan Shing "Anson" Tsang came out on top of a field of 3,628 total entries.

Playing under his moniker "[email protected]", Tsang earned the biggest slice of the $1,364,128 prize pool and collected the top prize worth $178,921 for the efforts. It was the first WSOP Circuit ring for Hong Kong based Tsang, who came out on top of a high-octane heads-up duel with Canada's "SHOOT_YOURFACE" ($134,170).

Tsang already had two WSOP bracelets to his name prior to this and fired as many entries in his first event of the ongoing festival.

Austrian-based Cosmin-Ionut "cosmiNik89" Nica from Romania finished in third place, the other two WSOP bracelet winners in the mix were Tomas Ribeiro (fifth place) and Chris Moorman (ninth place).

Final Table Action

The manual seat draw by all players in seating order was barely completed when Chris Moorman was already sent to the rail. It was none other than Anson "[email protected]" Tsang who dealt the final blow when both got it in with aces and Tsang flopped the flush. Only a few minutes later, Russia's "v_Nistelrooy" hit the rail and the field was down to the final seven.

Kristof "ultrafish" Segers was next to go. The Belgian player who is currently based in Taiwan first doubled Tomas Ribeiro and then busted to the Portuguese PLO bracelet winner. Fewer than one hour later they were down to the final five when Tsang held with aces and dodged a ton of outs by Murilo "Fruble" Milhomem.

The surge of Ribeiro was cut down in fifth place when he first doubled "KING MC" and then busted to Tsang, both times coming up short against broadway. "KING MC" was the next to run out of chips when their aces were cracked by "SHOOT_YOURFACE".

Fifth place for Tomas Ribeiro

During the three-handed play, Cosmin-Ionut "cosmiNik89" Nica became the short stack as "SHOOT_YOURFACE" ramped their aggression with dozens of pot-sized raises. Both got it in with the same open-ended straight draw and "SHOOT_YOURFACE" held the superior flush draw to claim their second victim of the final table.

The heads-up duel for the WSOP Circuit ring can only be described as very entertaining. "SHOOT_YOURFACE" scored a miracle double on the river and then continued with their extremely aggressive preflop strategy. Tsang doubled into an overwhelming lead only for the fortune to swing back as "SHOOT_YOURFACE" gained a lead of more than two-to-one.

Ultimately, Tsang held with kings to regain the lead and then got there with a combo-draw, which improved to a runner-runner full house instead.

That wraps up the PokerNews live updates for this event but a busy Super Sunday awaits with three WSOPC Events on GGPoker inn action. Tsang may well be jumping into the action and he certainly will do so on Tuesday, January 5th for Event #16: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship.

The aggressive heads-up play of "SHOOT_YOURFACE" saw their stack drop to under 45 million when Anson "[email protected]" Tsang responded with repots and ultimately a button raise to 9 million by "SHOOT_YOURFACE was called by Tsang.

On a flop of {k-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{5-Clubs}, Tsang bet 18 million and then called the jam of his opponent for 33,731,902.

"SHOOT_YOURFACE": {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}
Anson "[email protected]" Tsang: {9-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Spades}

Tsang turned two pair with the {6-Clubs} while his opponent picked up the nut flush draw and held counterfeit outs. The river indeed paired the board but it was the {6-Diamonds} which further improved Tsang to a full house.

The run of "SHOOT_YOURFACE", who had no recorded cash on GGPoker prior to this event, ended in 2nd place for $134,170. For Tsang it was the second victory in a WSOP Online event on GGPoker as he now added a maiden WSOPC ring and the top prize of $178,921 to his collection.

A full recap of today's action is to follow.
