by Nitya Jain Posted on 20 Aug, 2020

The 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online continues on GGNetwork. It took over 12 hours for the 66th bracelet winner to come out on top and clinch to the top prize. Ireland’s Toby ‘shinerrr’ Joyce defeated Mark ‘Beanboozled’ Herm in heads-up and bagged his first ever gold bracelet.

The WSOP Event #66: $800 Pot Limit Omaha attracted a strong field of 1,281 entries, resulting in the creation of $973,560 prize pool. Joyce has over 20 WSOP cashes in Las Vegas and on the circle. With $1.65 million in lifetime earnings, the champion sits 7th in Ireland’s all time money list. In the ongoing series, Joyce ran deep in Event #35: $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship, finishing 13th.

Money reached the top 188 players who locked $1,694 min-cash, including Hun Wei Lee (33rd, $3,231), Philip ‘GoosePower’ Ward (25th, $4,452), Mario ‘xxmmarioxx’ Mosboeck (16th, $6,135), Julian ‘JohnG’ Ohngemach (14th, $6,135) and so on. Making the country proud, India’s Rahul ‘sabertooth35’ Gupta finished 8th for $16,054 (~INR 12.04 Lakhs). A couple of days ago, ‘Mandovi’ brought home 4th bracelet and Suraj Mishra finished second for a record-breaking payout by any Indian in WSOP.

Kathy ‘YouMakeMeWet’ Sathaphan bubbled the final table after failing to dominate Jonas ‘deucesup’ Kronwitter. Wilder ‘wilder brito’ Brito went out in the 9th place, Rahul Gupta was knocked out by Mark Herm in 8th place. With dismissal of Ukraine’s Ruslan ‘zverrmvp’ Nazarenko, Austria’s Jonas ‘deucesup’ Kronwitter and Russia’s Maksim ‘MAX FOMIN’ Fomin, heads-up play began.

Joyce clicked it up to 2.4 million and Herm reraised the pot to 7.2 million. Later, Herm called for a pot of 23.15 million.

  • Herm: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{8-Spades}
  • Joyce: {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{10-Spades}
