The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is in full swing and so the WSOP online bracelet events.
The first of the nine online WSOP bracelet events kicked off on June 2 drawing in close to 3000 total entries creating a prize pool of just over $1 million.
Despite a buy-in of $400, the event drew some of the world’s best high-stakes player including the likes of Allen “Chainsaw” Kessler, Alex Foxen, James Obst as well as Phil Hellmuth who ended up reaching the final table under the screen name “lumestackin.”
After several hours of play, it was Korean poker player Yong Keun “LuckySpewy1” Kwon who outlasted a field of 2825 total entries, denying the Poker Brat his 16th WSOP bracelet by eliminating him in 5th place.
Hellmuth took home close to $40,000 for his efforts while Yong Keun finished with a top prize of $165,263.
