WSOP 2020: Pat Lyons Triumphs Event #17 for $173K

by Nitya Jain Posted on 18 Jul, 2020

Two more days before the action from WSOP.com moves to GGPoker to host the remaining gold bracelet events. Friday fever pulled in another monstrous field and another prestigious title was awarded to the eventual champion in 2020 WSOP Online Event #17: $777 No-Limit Hold’em.

The 17th bracelet produced a hefty $967,400 prize pool at the back of 1,382 entries. Almost 11 hours of grinding concluded the tournament. Top 207 players walked out with a min-cash after ‘ejanicom’ bubbled the tournament in 208th place. But the one to grab the lion’s chunk was California’s Pat ‘IchiiKawawa’ Lyon, capturing his first ever WSOP bracelet. The champion has over $1.58 million in total live winnings with is career-best $615K in 2016 WPT Main Event in Los Angeles. In 2018, Lyon took down WPT Survivor Turbo. The same year he also won a WSOP Circuit gold ring at the Bicycle Casino.

Other notables from the crowd to cash include  Daniel ‘DNegs’ Negreanu (123rd – $1,354), Robert ‘NeverEven’ Peacock (79th – $1,934), Upeshka ‘gomezhamburg’ De Silva (50th – $2,902), Michael ‘joebiden’ Klein (10th – $10,060) Event #16 runner-up Julian ‘Julian’ Parmann (9th – $16,832).

First casualty from the final table was Dave ‘DunningKrugr’ Alfa who earned $12K, followed by Parmann. With $40K Jim ‘Bocaratone’ Collopy bowed out and soon with the dismissal of Barry ‘_MLB_’ Wenger in 3rd place, heads-up got underway between ‘NJ_GLive’ and Lyons.

  • ‘NJ_GLive’: As Kc
  • Lyons: Qd 9d

Flop 2h Ad Qs proved beneficial for ‘NJ_GLive’ but turn Jc didn’t change much. But with Qh on the river Lyons held trip Queens and clinched to the top prize of $173,551 along with the gold piece!
