Fred "staeks" Li Takes Down [Online] $777 Lucky 7's No-Limit Hold'em Second Chance for $159,060

AndrewK47 • Level 41: Blinds 120,000-240,000, 30,000 ante

The eleventh online WSOP Bracelet event of the 2022 World Series of Poker has come to a close on WSOP.com with Fred "staeks" Li coming out on top, winning the WSOP Gold Bracelet and $159,060.

Li outlasted 781 opponents (including reentries) who generated a prize pool of $854,700. Among the notable players who made it into the cash were bracelet winners Dominick "flow_cold" Sarle, Jason "TheBigGift" Gooch, and none other than high stakes crusher and four-time bracelet winner David "dpeters17" Peters.

After 11 hours of play and a roughly 30-minute heads-up battle between Li and Zach "zoks7" Okin all the chips went in when Li held ace-ten against the pocket-eights of Okin. The flop was safe for Okin, but Li took the lead when the ten hit the turn. The river bricked for Okin and Li was victorious.

Final Table Action

Daniel "IGetLost" Dizenzo was first to exit on the eight-handed official final table when he ran ace-queen very short stacked into the big blind of Okin with nine-five who made a pair to eliminate Dizenzo. A few hands later Michael "LatinoLoco" Acevedo found pocket-fives but ran into the big stack of Okin with jacks and could not improve, sending him to the rail in 7th place.

Next to go was bracelet winner Dominick "flow_cold" Sarle who ran ace-five into the queens of Li and could not find an ace, sending him out in 6th place. The 5th place finisher was Ryan "doyouliftbro" Jones, who was all in with tens but ran into a cooler when Li picked up kings.

Bobby "Ericartmenez" Oboodi was all in with pocket-sixes but again ran into a monster when Okin picked up pocket jacks and sent them packing in 4th. Michael "Mike916" Guzzardi was involved in one of the biggest coolers of the tournament when he picked up jacks preflop and was all in against kings and queens of his opponents, putting him out in 3rd place.

The heads-up play started with Li having an almost 4-1 lead on Okin, but a few pots went the way of Okin, and they became dead even. Li battled back to win some crucial pots and regain the chip lead, and in the final hand, the ace-ten scored a pair to eliminate the eights of Okin in 2nd place and win the tournament.

That finishes the PokerNews coverage of this online event. Thank you for tuning in to the action.
