Louis “PokeThese” Lynch Takes Down WSOP Online Event #2 for $168K!

by Nitya Jain Posted on 03 Jul, 2020

The highly awaited 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) is officially here hosting online gold bracelet events. If COVID-19 wouldn’t have conquered the world, we could witness players making history in Rio All-Suite. But Event 1 was a massive success, the festival crowned its first champion Jonathan Dokler and today another one walked out with a bracelet in Event #2: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em Deepstack 8-Max that kicked off yesterday on WSOP.com at 3 pm PDT.

The tournament captured attention of 919 entries generating a prize pool of $873,050. The money bubble busted with “MBEASY” leaving in 144th place. Seeking his 16th bracelet, it was only yesterday that Phil “Lumestackin” Hellmuth made deep run finishing in the 11th place. Once again, the poker legend had to walk out after failing to dominate “MitchMurphy”. Another one striving to capture his 7th bracelet, Daniel “dnegs” Negreanu ended in 18th place. Other notable Indian-origin players to bust early in the competition include Ankush “rickrosstheb” Mandavia, Amit “rocketsbaby” Makhija, Nipun ‘javatini’ Java.

Soon, the 9-handed table was formed with the dismissal of “Acnyc718”. Action on the table folded around to Josh “YoelRomero” King who moved all in for 782K and ended in the 9th place. Following the heels of King was Matthew “Michmeister” Mich and Jon “jonnyg93” Gisler. Jason “haderade” Somerville battling to grab his second bracelet busted in 6th place. Heads-up got underway between Ryan “KOVID19” Ko and Louis “PokeThese” Lynch after the elimination of Kevin “GoneBananas” Garosshen.  

“KOVID19”: Qs 6c
“PokeThese”: 6h 6s

KOVID19″ raised all in for 2,246,570 and “PokeThese” called. The board opened 5d 4s 10h 2s 8d and Louis “PokeThese” Lynch claimed the second Gold bracelet of 2020 along with $168,585 for his victory! Lynch from Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania has over $150,000 in lifetime winnings and with this win he has eclipsed his previous biggest score of $54,494 by over three times! 

Final Table Payouts:

  1. “PokeThese” – $168,585
  2. “KOVID19” – $104,242
  3. Kevin “GoneBananas” Garosshen – $73,423
  4. Daniel “IntoTheRiver” Fischer – $52,383
  5. Sean “bahbababa” Prendiville – $37,890
  6. Jason “haderade” Somerville – $27,762
  7. Jon “jonnyg93” Gisler – $20,691
  8. Matthew “Michmeister” Mich – $15,627
