Over the past few weeks, online poker players have had the opportunity to earn WSOP gold bracelets in online events. WSOP launched 31 gold bracelet events in New Jersey and Nevada via their website and continue to offer even more gold earning opportunity via GGPoker. Players from around the world can compete in the GGPoker events and just recently, a player who won a gold bracelet at WSOP.com has now won a second thanks to the continued gaming options at GGPoker.
Two Gold Bracelet Wins
Alek Stasiak, aka astazz, has become the first player to win two gold bracelets during the WSOP Online Series. His first came during Event #33, the $1,111 Every 1 for Covid Relief (Caesars Cares). That event took place around two weeks ago. Now, he competed in Event #52, a $1,000 No Limit Hold’em Event. He earned $273,505 in cash for the win along with his second gold bracelet. He also earned a WSOP Europe Package.
Stasiak was able to be the last person standing among a field of 2,006 entries. The prize pool was worth almost $1.1 million. The poker player won the event after defeating Kunal Bhatia in heads-up play.
When Stasiak won Event #33, it was the first time he had earned a six figure win. Plus, his first gold bracelet. Now, he has earned more than $600,000 in his career in just the past few weeks thanks to the WSOP Online series.
It is incredible to consider that Stasiak was able to win two online events, especially since the field is so large during WSOP action and it can be difficult to win more than one event. It is important to note that Stasiak told PokerNews that he was able to win the first bracelet after qualifying for the event from a $10 satellite.
More GGPoker Action This Week
GGPoker will continue to offer online poker gaming that includes WSOP gold bracelet events for several more weeks. Players can compete in events through September. This week, players can compete in Event #58, a No limit Hold’em 6-Handed Championship with a $5,000 buy-in. Event #59 kicks off the next day, offering a $2,500 Double Stack No Limit Hold’em event.
Additional events on the schedule include:
Event #60 $525 Bounty No Limit Hold’em 6-Handed
Event #61 $300 Monster Stack No Limit Hold’em 6-Handed
Event #62 $1,500 Pot Limit
After these events, the schedule just continues to offer event after event. Players can compete in satellites at GGPoker to earn a spot into events at a lower buy-in or just buy-in directly to take part. Players from around the world are able to compete in WSOP Online gold bracelet events for the very first time via this GGPoker offering.
Players are certainly taking advantage of it. The turnouts have been quite large and already tens of millions have been given away via prize money. We shall see after the remaining few weeks finish up, just how successful the WSOP Online Series was via GGPoker and if anyone else can manage to win more than one gold bracelet like Stasiak!
