The WSOP 2020 Online Bracelet Series continues on GGPoker and with just two weeks left before the festival comes to a close, the leaderboard race has gotten more intense, as players set their sights on becoming the overall WSOP Online Champion.
The festival features two leaderboards – one covering all bracelet events, the other exclusive for Asian Time Zone events. Daniel Dvoress currently leads the pack in the overall leaderboard with 6,185.90 points, while Luis “Xapliskinha” Assuncao Garla tops the Asian events with 3,568.84
Dvoress scored big when he took down the $1,500 MILLIONAIRE MAKER for $1,489,289, the biggest top prize to be awarded at the festival thus far. That victory also gave him his first-ever gold bracelet, which had long been missing from his excellent resume. The Canadian poker pro is not used to playing the traditional live WSOP event in Las Vegas, however this year he finally got the chance to compete when the series was moved online due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Coming close behind Dvoress is fellow Canadian Alek “astazz” Stasiak who currently sits at No. 2, with 6,063.43 points. Stasiak became the first double-bracelet winner at the series, having captured the first one in Event #33: $1,111 Every 1 for Covid Relief (Caesars Cares), followed by another victory in Event #52: $1,000 NLHE. Stasiak has so far earned more than $600,000 at the festival alone.
Ivan “zufo16” Zufic currently ranks 3rd, with 5,719.69 points. He won the Mini Main Event after outclassing a massive field of 15,205 players for $843,460 and his first gold bracelet. Following Zufic at No. 4 is Ranno “RukKuRuku” Sootla, the winner of the $400 buy-in COLOSSUS event. He has 5,021.13 points. Brazilian player Belarmino De Souza managed to climb to the 5th spot despite not winning a bracelet. His in-the-money finishes across 14 events earned him 4,912.17 points.
Asian Time Zone Events Leaderboard
Over at the Asian Time Zone Events, Garla is currently leading with most of his points coming from his win in Event #55: $8,000 NLHE Asia Championship. Roberto Romanello follows him in second place but with a wide gap of around 1,080 points. Romanello was the winner of Event #39. Aaron “fishnclip” Wijaya, Sung Joo “ArtePokerTV” Hyun, and Alexander “MightyWarior” Stacey round out the Top 5.
The winner of the overall leaderboard will get a pure gold computer mouse, while the player coming out on top of the Asian Leaderboard will receive a pure gold dragon trophy.
The 2020 WSOP Online Bracelet Series will conclude on September 5.
