The first non-hold'em event of the 2021 WSOP schedule took place Friday evening with the 2021 World Series of Poker Online Event #16: $600 PLO8 6-Handed attracting 498 total entries to create a $268,920 prize pool.

After more than 11 hours of play, Allen "Acnyc718" Chang won his second WSOP bracelet and the $61,394 top prize after defeating Edwin "YungFlipWell" Roman in heads-up play.

The victory comes one year and ten days after he won his first WSOP bracelet last year in Event #5: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Freezeout. Chang, to The Hendon Mob, has $215,567 in live tournament earnings including a career-best $49,039 for finishing seventh in the 2010 Borgata Spring Poker Open Championship Event. As for the WSOP online events go, he has amassed $278,190 and two WSOP gold bracelets.

After Mike "Mkspresident" Shin exited as the bubble bout in 73rd place, the in-the-money eliminations came at a steady pace and included WSOP bracelet winner Ryan "Joeyisamush" Depaulo (49th - $1,103), Galen "turkmalloy" Hall (44th - $1,237), David "dwpoker" Williams (37th - $1,237), last year's champ Nathan "surfbum" Gamble (31st - $1,398), Yueqi "anoob" Zhu (18th - $1,990), and "tobi7bobi" (7th - $6,777).

Final Table Action

With six players to start the final table, one of them had to be the first to fall and that was Andrew "WATCHGUY42" Lichtenberger who flush flushed on the river by Chang. A few hands later, Chang continued with another elimination after he turned broadway to send Chris "pdx2nyc" Leslie-Hynan home in fifth place.

Brian "PiggyBear" Hacker was up next on the chopping block after their pocket nines were straightened out by Edwin "YungFlipWell" Roman on the river.

With the final three players sitting fairly even, the action was slow for the first two levels until Chang started gaining traction once again, turning a queen to eliminate Ryan "Santasbzack2" Stoker in third place for $35,663.

The heads-up battle saw Chang hold the majority of the chips in play and made quick work of Roman to earn him his second WSOP bracelet.

The 2021 WSOP Online continues on Saturday with Event #17: $400 NLH 8-Max. PokerNews will be live reporting and streaming the action, so be sure to join us then.

Edwin "YungFlipWell" Roman Eliminated in 2nd Place ($37,837)

jeffmcmillan • Level 32: 60,000-120,000, 0 ante

Edwin "YungFlipWell" Roman raised to 360,000 from the button, Allen "Acnyc718" Chang called.

The flop came the {5-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{j-Diamonds}, Chang bet 720,000 which was covering the remaining 575,780 of Roman who called.

It was looking like a possible split pot as Chang led the low with the {9-Clubs}{5-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Spades}, while Roman held the {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{j-Spades}{6-Hearts} for a pair of jacks for the high.

The turn was the {q-Spades} and the river came the {k-Spades} to bring in the flush for Chang and eliminate Roman in second place.

WSOP History: Looking Back at the November (and October) Nines

AnthonyThompson • Level 31: 50,000-100,000, 0 ante
2013 WSOP November Nine
2013 WSOP November Nine

No stage in poker stood as a bigger goal for a tournament player than the final table of the WSOP Main Event. For years, that meant going to sleep knowing you had the chance of a lifetime, to go down in poker history in the next few days as the cameras captured your every bet, raise and fold.

All of that changed in 2008.

The year after Jerry Yang's Main Event victory was broadcast to all on ESPN's standard tape delay, organizers made a decision to try to increase the excitement and anticipation around the final table: after the final nine was reached, play would be paused. At that point, everyone left would go home with 9th-place money and the players would reconvene a few months later to play out the final table on a short tape delay.

That lasted until 2016, and this is the history of the November (and October) Nines.

The flop came {3-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{5-Spades}, the turn was the {7-Diamonds} and the river came the {8-Clubs} to end Hacker's night.
