Raman Afanasenka First WSOP Online Bracelet Winner & More WSOP News
The first WSOP taking place fully online is turning out to be a great success

The World Series of Poker is the most iconic series of poker tournaments which is traditionally held every year in Las Vegas. This year, the World Series of Poker Online took place and as expected, it offered plenty of poker events. A couple of days ago, the World Series of Poker Online Event #11 took place and it was a $500 No Limit Hold’em Turbo Deepstack event in six-handed play. This event gathered over one thousand players and six hundred and ten rebuys.

The event accumulated $760,000 and in the end, after seven hours, it was Raman “Acrogum” Afanasenka who was crowned the winner. It is worth mentioning that great Raman “Acrogum” Afanasenka became the very first person residing outside of the United States to claim an online World Series of Poker bracelet and this way his first gold bracelet so he has a lot of reasons to celebrate.

Raman “Acrogum” Afanasenka vs. Chance “BingShui” Kornuth

Once the World Series of Poker Online Event #11 came down to the two final players, it was Chance “BingShui” Kornuth against Raman “Acrogum” Afanasenka. Raman and Chance would eventually go head to head with the winner as the chip leader with forty-two million in chips against twenty-four million in chips that Chance had. On the final hand, Raman “Acrogum” Afanasenka had pocket 3s while the second-placed Chance had K-A.

The flop showed a six and a King, but it was the river’s third 3 which gave Raman “Acrogum” Afanasenka the hand and most importantly the ultimate win. Chance “BingShui” Kornuth was really hoping to win the event which would be his second World Series of Poker Online bracelet as he earned his very first bracelet two years ago in the WSOP Event #63 in a No-Limit Hold’em High Roller. In the end, it was Raman Afanasenka as first place with a prize of $128,601 followed by Chance Kornuth, Brett Apter, David Prociak, Neeraj Nayak and Erica Lindgren.

World Series of Poker Online Event #5 and Event #11

The event was a $1,000 No Limit Hold’em Freezeout and it gathered eight hundred and fifty-four poker players who generated over $811,000. After eleven hours, Allen Chang was crowned the winner and he went home with $161,286 in his pockets.

Just like the vast majority of other World Series of Poker Online event, this one was rather tough with both professional and amateur players competing. The final table saw Philip ‘tomte’ Yeh and the winner Allen Chang facing each other in the exciting heads-up game with great Allen being the chip leader. Before the game ended, Phillip Yeh took over the chip lead, but it was Allen who won the game followed by Philip Yeh, Felipe Leme, Andrew Campbell, Tim Begley, Alex Condon, John Forlenza, Josh Greenberg and Quintin Trammell as ninth-placed.
