The entire poker world is blessed with the power-packed action on WSOP.com as well as GG Network hosting the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Bracelet Events. And today crowned champions in Event #21 and Event #35 what turned out to be second gold bracelet win for each!
Action continued on WSOP.com and the 21st bracelet event garnered a field of 1,361 entries, generating $952,700 prize pool. Mark ‘bansman’ Bansemer bubbled the tournament in 207th place with the remaining players finishing in the money. Nearly 11 hours later, it was World Poker Tour (WPT) commentator Tony Dunst emerging victorious to capture a $168,342 first-place prize and his second career bracelet.
In 2016, Dunst took down WSOP Event #63: $1,000 NLH for $339,254. In 2019, he came real close to his second bracelet but lost to Carl Shaw in WSOP Event #89: $5,000 NLH for $374,886. The champion’s lifetime earnings exceed $3 million with his career-best 2016 Aussie Millions Main Event where he finished 2nd for $700,069.
Dunst began the final table with a big chip lead and by the time four players remained, he sat with more than 13 million. With the dismissal of Alec ‘Tango_Bravo’ Parslow in third place for $72K, heads-up play began between ‘paymycollege’ and Tony ‘Panoramic’ Dunst.
The board ran 5s 7s 4d 3s Qh and Dunst fired out 3 million while his opponent raised all in for 8 million and Dunst called. And that’s how Dunst completed a flush. ‘paymycollege’ was left with less with 116k and then went out after running six-three into aces. Thus, Dunst took home the top prize and the gold hardware for claiming the day!
