The 2020 GGPoker World Series of Poker Online awarded its latest bracelet in Event #68: $500 Deepstack, which drew 2,315 entries to create a prize pool of $1,099,625. After more than 13 hours of play, it was Hong Kong’s Yan Shing “Anson” Tsang who shipped it to earn his second WSOP bracelet and a $150,460 in top prize after defeating Mohaiman “Ironman3000” Ashrafee heads-up.
Already holding plenty of cashes from the WSOP tournaments in Las Vegas, Tsang was the first player from Hong Kong to win a bracelet in 2018 after topping 187 entries in Event #7: €2,200 PLO. Now he is a proud owner of two bracelets after his grand win in this WSOP tournament.
Tsang entered the final table of the event with the chip lead and never relinquished his lead to eventually take down the tournament to claim $150,460 in top prize. At the FT, he outlasted Brazil’s Eder Campana (9th), Japan’s Nobuaki Sasaki (8th), Mexico’s Marc Carola (7th), Australia’s Malcolm Trayner (6th), his countryman Wong Soon Heong (5th), Israel’s Amir Dvir (4th), Stephen Holford (3rd) from the US to finally enter the final showdown with Mohaiman Ashrafee from Bangladesh.
Heads up play began with Tsang holding around a 3-to-1 chip lead over Ashrafee. The 40-minute heads-up saw Ashrafee fight a back-and forth battle and chip-up well. However, Tsang battled back and Ashrafee was left with just 13,089,371 chips by the time the final hand of the tournament arrived. Eventually, Ashrafee moved all-in with Qs Jd and Tsang called with Kh Qd. The board ran out Jc Ah 10d 9d 10h, giving Tsang a straight to win the title. Ashrafee had to settle for $116,809 prize.
