WSOP 2020: second gold bracelet for Lithuania
Gediminas Uselis cannot be called a famous poker player, as most people in the community first heard about him just the day before yesterday. That’s because Gediminas won a WSOP gold bracelet and $211 000 in prize money.
Uselis has earned just $330 000 in live events throughout his entire poker career. He also won a WSOP Circuit ring a year ago. But his online results are much more impressive: the Lithuanian’s prize money in online poker has reached the mark of $2 000 000. Gediminas also added the gold bracelet that he won in the WSOP Event # 76 to his collection of poker trophies.
The 76th WSOP Online event with a $400 buy-in collected 4 461 entries. All those participants competed for the lion's share of a $1 667 336 prize pool, but only 548 players got in the money.
Bryan Rust achieved the best result of the well-known poker professionals. The owner of four WSOP bracelets took 26th place and received a modest payout of $5 285.
Gediminas Uselis started the final table having the third biggest stack among the finalists. He soon became the chip leader, taking big pots one after another.
As a result, Gediminas went down to the final heads-up and emerged victorious, winning the top prize and the gold bracelet. In the heads-up, he was opposed by Andrew Wilson from Great Britain, who received $159 000 for second place.
