2020 WSOP Online: Lithuania’s Gediminas Uselis Wins Event #76 for $227,186

The 76th event of the ongoing 2020 WSOP Online pulled in a total of 4,461 entries, resulting in the creation of $1.67 million prize pool. In the end, it was Lithuania’s Gediminas ‘NeverGambol’ Uselis who went on to outlast the field to win his first WSOP bracelet, $227,186 in first place prize and a WSOP Europe package. He defeated Andrew ‘PaxRomana’ Wilson (2nd for $169,128) in heads-up.

This is Uselis’ 4th cash from the series. He also has 5 cashes in WSOP 2018 and 2019, including his previous best-score of $82,130 for finishing 9th in the 2019 $888 NLH Crazy Eights Event #64.

Eliminations at the FT were quick and it didn’t take long for the table to come down to just six players. After the elimination of two Brazilians Nicolau Villa Lobos (9th) and GuilhermeDos Santos (8th), it was Michelle Roberts who fell in 7th place after a horrid kings into aces cooler. Jorstad lost his stack with sixes into jacks for 5th place. Going out in 3rd place was Israel’s Yaniv Bohadana whose Qd Js lost to 2s 2h of GediminasUselis on a board of 9h 10h 3d 7s 2d. Bohadana earned $114,237 for his run.

The three-handed play lasted for about 20 minutes before Bohadana fell in 3rd place, setting up a heads-up between Wilson from the UK and Uselis, with the latter starting the heads-up with the lead. While Wilson fought hard to even stacks and was able to surge ahead, Uselis found a big double-up and there was no looking back for him after that as he went on to ship it for $211,282 in top prize.

On the final hand, Wilson had Kc 8c, while the eventual champ Uselis held Js 7c. The board ran out 7s 6c 9c 7h 7c. The river did give Wilson a flush, but it was no match against the quads of Uselis.
