A new first-time champion has been crowned during the 2021 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events. Out of a field of 1,064 entries in Event #28: $2,100 Bounty Championship No-Limit Hold'em, it was Dominik Panka who prevailed and collected his maiden gold bracelet. The tournament created a prize pool of $2,128,000 and Panka earned the biggest slice of it for $185,228 after defeating China's Fengdian "Shandongmenghu" Wang in a short-lived heads-up duel.

Prior to his victory, the 30-year old had 14 WSOP related cashed to his name for more than $126k in total. However, on the live poker itself, Panka has already cashed for more than $3.1 million to his name which puts him in third place on the all-time money list for his home country. It was also the third WSOP gold bracelet for a player from Poland during the ongoing online series after the victories of Bartlomiej "chester20o" Swieboda and Kacper Pyzara.

The final table also featured Natalya "Nikitina N1" Nikitina, two-time WSOP bracelet winner Chris Moorman and Vincent "Moist" Huang. One-time WSOP bracelet winner Abhinav "OBellaCiao" Iyer bubbled the final table and Arkadiy "Kamsky" Tsinis also missed out on the opportunity to double his bracelet tally. PKO book author Dara O'Kearney was among the 22 finalists and finished in 17th place.

Early Carnage Propels Panka in Contention

Only 22 players returned to their seats and it didn't take long for the action to pick up. Panka was among the shorter stacks with 18 blinds for the first level of the final day and plummeted further down the leaderboard while several other contenders hit the rail in quick succession. However, he then doubled through Nir "NIRUSHHH" Amar and Arkadiy "Kamsky" Tsinis before knocking out Tsinis with kings versus ace-queen.

From there on, Panka remained near the top and entered the final table second in chips behind Natalya "Nikitina N1" Nikitina. Vincent "Moist" Huang had dominated the early stages and earned several knockouts to boost his bounty tally. The Aussie was then eliminated by Panka when ace-ten suited found no help against pocket jacks. Panka continued to shine as he also claimed the bounties of Noam "silverplat" Makavy and Chris Moorman to take over a comfortable lead.

Nikitina had to settle for fifth place and was followed to the rail by David "Mclovin86" Mzareulov in fourth soon after. The lead of Panka was still unchallenged by then but three-handed action saw several changes with all three contenders taking turns at the top of the chip counts. Down to as little as 13 big blinds, Panka staged a comeback to retake the top spot while Fengdian "Shandongmenghu" Wang ramped up the aggression and knocked out Nir "NIRUSHHH" Amar.

The heads-up duel was a very brief affair and lasted all but 12 hands. Ultimately, it was a classic flip that got the chips in the middle and the ace-jack of Panka rivered broadway to seal his victory.

That wraps up the PokerNews updates for this event but the final week of the international 2021 WSOP Online Bracelet Events will be as busy as it gets with another six WSOP gold bracelet winners to be crowned.

Only 12 hands were played in heads-up as Dominik Panka regained a small lead over Fengdian "Shandongmenghu" Wang without showdown. Panka opened the button to 2 million and Wang made it 6.6 million to go. Panka then jammed for 28,527,010 and Wang called it off for the 17,822,990 he had behind.

Fengdian "Shandongmenghu" Wang: {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}
Dominik Panka: {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}

The {q-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{6-Spades} flop gave Panka a gutshot and he picked up counterfeit outs with the {10-Diamonds} on the turn. It was the {k-Diamonds} river that filled up Panka broadway and sent Wang to the rail in 2nd place. He takes home $107,117 including $20,628 in bounties and Panka earns his maiden WSOP bracelet and $185,228 for the efforts.

Panka and Wang Trade Big Pots

jnoy • Level 45: 400,000-800,000, 100,000 ante

Fengdian "Shandongmenghu" Wang completed and called Dominik Panka's raise to see a flop of {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}. Panka followed with a bet and Wang called, and another big bet after the {j-Hearts} turn extended his chip lead.

But on the very next hand, the lead swapped again after Wang completed and called Dominik Panka's pre-flop raise.

Fengdian "Shandongmenghu" Wang {k-Hearts}{3-Clubs}
Dominik Panka {q-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

Wang check-called both the flop {q-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades} and turn {k-Spades}, before both players checked the river {k-Clubs}. Wang showed trip kings to recover some chips from the previous pot.

Wang Loses to Panka; Doubles Amar

zedmaster84 • Level 45: 400,000-800,000, 100,000 ante

In a three-way min-raised pot the {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} flop was checked. Fengdian "Shandongmenghu" Wang bet the {a-Clubs} turn when checked to and Panka check-raised from 1,113,750 to 3,627,500 and Wang folded.

Wang also conceded the next smaller pot to Panka before then open-jamming into the short stack of Nir "NIRUSHHH" Amar. An instant call followed and Amar was at risk in the following showdown.

Nir "NIRUSHHH" Amar: {10-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Fengdian "Shandongmenghu" Wang: {4-Spades}{3-Spades}

The {9-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} flop gave Wang the lead and the {q-Clubs} turn changed nothing yet. However, the {8-Clubs} river paired the board and Wang's two pair were counterfeited.

zedmaster84 • Level 44: 350,000-700,000, 85,000 ante

Fengdian "Shandongmenghu" Wang limped the small blind and Nir "NIRUSHHH" Amar raised to 1,527,500. Wang then limp-raised to 3,755,000 and Amar came along. On the {10-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop, Wang bet 2.1 million and that shut down Amar.

Up next, Wang min-raised the button and fired two barrels until the {j-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} turn. Dominik Panka check-called once and then let go.
