The last week of the 2021 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events has now seen the first day of Event #24: $1,050 Bounty Pot-Limit Omaha come to an end after 32 levels of play, with just 10 left standing of the 896 entry field. Sitting atop the leaderboard is Daniel Perkusic who has 5,267,659 in his stack, which is about 88 big blinds to start the final day.

The German was already soaring at the top throughout the later stages of the day when he took down the biggest pot of the night. Perkusic defended his big blind, landing a set of tens versus the top pair of Phillip "FUGG" Nagy who called a check-raise on the flop to see the turn. Nagy then pushed over the top of a staggering bet with just his flopped king and Perkusic turned over the bad news. Nagy was still drawing live to a straight but failed to hit, sending a Day 1 chip lead deciding pot to Perkusic who held on to finish on top.

Right below Perkusic on the totem pole is Ami Barer who had an incredible day from start to finish, never falling far from the top. Barer bagged 4,878,902 (81 bb) and is the only other player close to that of Perkusic. Rounding out the top five are Samuel "FishIdiot" Saariaho (2,494,937), Dmitry Yurasov (2,250,547), and the only known player with a WSOP bracelet left in the field Anson Tsang (2,247,353).

"tanqueray10" (1,520,450) and David "Mclovin86" Mzareulov (1,282,476) each have over twenty big blinds. While "trubadur" (945,788), "NowWeAreFree" (821,708), and Fausto "Fantastik55" Tantillo (690,180) are all on the short end of things and will need to make some moves early to break that final table.

The day started off with just over 200 runners and when late registration closed there was a total of 896 registration slips sold, creating an $896,000 prize pool. Just 177 were left standing at that point with 134 set to receive at least a min-cash. The final 10 are all now guaranteed at least $5,712 plus any bounties accumulated along the way, but all have their eye on that $36,224 first-place money, along with the prestigious WSOP bracelet the goes along with it.

The final day will resume tomorrow September 3, at 5 p.m. GMT with the blinds kicking off on level 33 - 30,000/60,000 with an ante of 7,500. Play will not halt until a winner is crowned, taking home the first-place money as well as bragging rights for owning a shiny new WSOP bracelet.

The PokerNews reporting team will be here throughout, so tune in then as the action unfolds.

Day 1 Has Completed

MartianNews • Level 32: 25,000-50,000, 6,000 ante

On the first day of Event #24: $1,050 Bounty Pot-Limit Omaha a total of 896 entry slips were sold and by the end of the night, only 10 were left to bag up and move on to the final day. Leading the way at the end of level 32 is Daniel Perkusic with 5,267,659.

A recap of the day will be posted shortly, along with full end-of-day chip counts.

Matthew "BTC2zERO" Stone Eliminated in 11th Place ($5,712 + $1,719)

MartianNews • Level 32: 25,000-50,000, 6,000 ante

Matthew "BTC2zERO" Stone opened to 88,000 from the button and Anson Tsang called in the big blind, bringing down a {j-Clubs}{6-Spades}{5-Clubs} flop.

Tsang checked to Stone who bet 133,000 and Tsang swiftly threw in a check-raise to 396,000. Stone shoved for a total of 809,308 and Tsang snapped it off.

Matthew "BTC2zERO" Stone: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}
Anson Tsang: {8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}

Stone had rockets with the nut-flush draw but Tsang was leading, having two pair. The {7-Spades} turn card changed little and Stone needed to hit.

A {3-Hearts} bricked out the river, missing Stone who was sent packing and Tsang moved just a little bit closer to his second bracelet during the process.

Day 1 Drawing Near to the End

MartianNews • Level 32: 25,000-50,000, 6,000 ante

Just 10 runners are left in the field as the last scheduled level of the night has begun. The remaining players at the end of this level will bag up at the end of the level or when the final table of 7 has been formed.


Andreas Torbergsen Eliminated in 12th Place ($4,963 + $3,758)

MartianNews • Level 31: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

David "Mclovin86" Mzareulov called from under the gun, Ami Barer limped the hijack, Andreas Torbergsen completed in the small blind and "NowWeAreFree" checked their option.

Four players went to the {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Spades} flop where Torbergsen bet 62,700, Mzareulov called and Barer raised to 245,775. Torbergsen shoved 504,400, Mzareulov folded and Bared snapped it off.

Andreas Torbergsen: {j-Spades}{8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Spades}
Ami Barer: {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{8-Spades}

Both had landed three snowmen but Barer had the higher kicker at that moment. A {2-Hearts} turn peeled off and Torbergsen need some love.

The {a-Diamonds} completed the board, missing Torbergesen who sent his bounty over to Barer, falling just shy of the final day.

Barer Sends Gottlieb to the Wayside

MartianNews • Level 31: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

Lev "LevMeAlone" Gottlieb opened to 140,000 and Ami Barer three-bet to 415,000. Gottlieb called to see the {q-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop where he shoved 177,038. Barer called and Gottlieb was at risk as the cards went face up.

Lev "LevMeAlone" Gottlieb: {a-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}
Ami Barer: {k-Hearts}{k-Clubs}{j-Spades}{5-Hearts}

Both had hearts but Gottlieb had the nut draw. Unfortunately for him, no hearts came and the {k-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} runout only improved Barer who was already leading.

Gottlieb fell to the set of cowboys and was eliminated, shipping yet another bounty to Barer late in the day.
