The six-time WSOP bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu and a 2020 WSOP Main Event final tablist highlighted the final table of WSOP Online Event #22:$600 NLHE Knockout on Thursday night but after two and a half hours of play, it was the mystery player ‘Lastbullet’ who emerged victorious.
Playing under ‘DNegs’, the Poker Hall of Famer Negreanu made it down to the final three players from a field of 612 entries but ultimately fell two spots short of securing the final bounty and his seventh bracelet, earning $19,851 as the third-place finisher. Negreanu, who streamed his play in the event on his YouTube channel, also scored five bounties in the event for an additional $1,000.
‘Lastbullet’ entered the final table as a chip leader and rode his lead to claim the title. He outlasted the likes of Daniel Negreanu, Jeff Madsen, and Ryan Hagerty to capture the bracelet and the top prize of $46,796 . In the hunt for his seventh bracelet, the GGPoker Ambassador Negreanu entered the final table as the fourth shortest stack and fell two spots shy of his seventh WSOP gold bracelet.
Negreanu began three-handed play with the shortest stack and after 15 minutes of play, the 46-year old was eliminated. ‘Lastbullet’ opened to 345,678 from the button and Negreanu called the additional 185,678 from the big blind. After the Qc 4c 4s flop, Negreanu check-called a bet of 345,678. The turn was the 2s and Negreanu shoved all-in for 1,038,766 and ‘Lastbullet’ called. Negreanu flopped top pair with Qs 9h but ‘Lastbullet’ flopped top pair, top kicker with As Qh. The river was the Kh and Negreanu exited in third place, leaving ‘Lastbullet’ to HU with a 2.5-1 chip lead.
Both ‘Lastbullet’ and Ryan ‘badbeatbill’ Basile battled it in heads-up for 24 minutes before the former captured the bracelet. From the button, ‘Lastbullet’ raised to 400k and Basile called. The flop came Jd 5d 3h and Basile checked. ‘Lastbullet’ bet 400k, Basile moved all in for 2,773,873 and ‘Lastbullet’ made the call. Basile showed 6d 4h for an open-ended straight draw while ‘Lastbullet’ tabled 7d 4d for a flush draw paired with a gutshot straight draw. The Qd on the turn and the Qs on the river completed the board to eliminate Basile in second place and give ‘Lastbullet’ the title.
The top 99 players were paid out, with Jason “justanenigma” Wheeler (10th for $2,401), Adrian “sacakewalk” Sacher (11th for $2,401), Sachin “sachYOstack” Ramrakhani (17th for $1,542), the 2013 WSOP Main Event champ Ryan Riess (31st for $1,058), Mike “Mkspresident” Shin (46th for $793), & 2-time bracelet winner Ryan “Adopt_aDogg0” Leng (76th for $596) being notable names among them.
