The latest online WSOP Event is in the books after just seven hours of play. Adnan "Bolazar" Hacialioglu bested a field of 1,910 to take home his first WSOP Bracelet, along with nearly $260,000 in prize money, as well as a WSOP Europe package.

At the start of the final table, Niko "niNohR" Koop held the chip lead with over 11 million chips, while eventual winner Hacialioglu started as the second shortest stack, with just over 2.6 million.

Tuen "FudGuy" Bui would be next to bust out when he got his final chips in with Ace-Queen, but he ran straight into the pocket aces of Jargo Alavali. The board brought no help for Bui, who was the first casualty of the final table.

Following the elimination of Soo Jo Kim in seventh place, it was time for Hacialioglu to start to make his comeback, as he would go on to get every elimination from there. First, he would bust "Andriy "smbcall911" Lyubovetskiy in sixth place in a blind vs. blind confrontation.

Next, Hacialioglu would have to get quite lucky, as he ran into the pocket aces of Jargo "bungakat" Alavali holding just Queen-Ten. However, Hacialioglu would flop top pair and a straight draw, and hit that straight on the river.

Niko "niNohR" Koop was next to be on the end of Hacialioglu's ax. He would have to come from behind again in this one, as his {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts} came back against the {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} of Koop, after spiking a king on the turn.

Not long after that, Tim "TMay420" West, who was the short stack throughout the whole final table, finally fell off the ladder, as he bowed out in third. On his final hand, West was flipping, with {k-Clubs}{10-Clubs} against the {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} of Hacialioglu. The board came down {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts}, giving Hacialioglu a straight.

Hacialioglu brought a big lead into heads up play with over 36 million to the 12 million of Robin "Kabuzzi" Berggren. They would only play a few hands before a classic coin flip, with Hacialioglu's Ace-Queen besting the pocket sevens of Berggren.

Congratulations again to Adnan Hacialioglu for his incredible showing. Again, he will take home $259,842, the WSOP bracelet, and the WSOP Europe package.

tayke2 • Level 42: 200,000-400,000, 50,000 ante

Adnan "Bolazar" Hacialioglu started heads up play with a big chip lead, and it would only take him a few hands to seal the deal. The last hand was a classic coin flip, as Berggren held {7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}, against the {a-Spades}{q-Clubs} of Hacialioglu. An ace came right on the flop, and no two outer would come for Berggren.

He will take home over $197,000 for his efforts, but the first place prize of $259,842, and the WSOP bracelet, will go home with Hacialioglu. Stay tuned for a full recap to be posted shortly.

tayke2 • Level 42: 200,000-400,000, 50,000 ante

Tim "TMay420" West survived a number of double ups, both from ahead and from behind, but his luck finally ran out, as he just busted in third. On his final hand, West got it in with {k-Clubs}{10-Clubs}, and he was flipping against the {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} of Adnan "Bolazar" Hacialioglu. The flop of {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{3-Hearts} gave West some more outs, but the board finished out {5-Hearts} and {2-Hearts}, giving Hacialioglu an unncessary straight, and also getting us to heads up play!

Niko "niNohR" Koop Eliminated in 4th Place ($103,892.64)

tayke2 • Level 42: 200,000-400,000, 50,000 ante

Niko "niNohR" Koop was one of the big stacks throughout the final table, but he recently faltered a bit, and just busted out in fourth place. Koop got his chips in good, holding {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} against the {k-Hearts}{j-Hearts} of Adnan "Bolazar" Hacialioglu. The flop of {5-Spades}{5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} missed both players, but the {k-Spades} on the turn changed everything. Only an ace would do for Koop now, but the {5-Hearts} came instead.

Jargo "bungakat" Alavali looked to be in great shape to double up, as he got his stack in the middle holding pocket aces, against the {q-Spades}{10-Hearts} of Adnan "Bolazar" Hacialioglu. However, Hacialioglu smashed the flop of {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{9-Clubs}, giving him top pair and an open ended straight draw. The {7-Hearts} on the turn didn't change anything, but the {k-Clubs} on the river sure did. Alavali busts in fifth, taking home over $75,000.

West Scores Another Double Up

tayke2 • Level 42: 200,000-400,000, 50,000 ante

Tim "TMay420" West started the final table as the severe short stack, but he simply refuses to go away, as he just scored another double up at this final table. Once again, West got it in great preflop, with his pocket nines dominating the sixes of Robin "Kabuzzi" Berggren. The board ran down {k-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades}{7-Spades}, and West doubled up to over 6.3 million.

Hacialioglu Doubles Through Koop

tayke2 • Level 41: 160,000-320,000, 40,000 ante

On the next hand, Adnan "Bolazar" Hacialioglu would get his stack in the middle from the button with {a-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}, but in the big blind, Niko "niNohR" Koop woke up with pocket nines. It wouldn't matter though, as an ace came right on the flop to give Hacialioglu a commanding lead. That lead would hold for the final two cards, and he doubled up to over 16 million.
