The 2021 WSOP Online is going full blast since it kick-started. Yesterday’s Event #3: $2,500 Limit Hold’em Championship came to an end amid high intensity drama.
Event #3 concluded on Day 1 with Nicolo Molinelli leading the chip stack. He made his way through 180 entries on Day 1 and entered Day 2 with a total stack of 1,850,925 chips.
Despite the high stack, Molinelli had to go through a rocky road on the final table (FT) before he finally grabbed the title. He was short stacked several times during the game and in fact, entered the heads-up with a shorter stack compared to the opponent Renan Bruschi. However, it was truly commendable how Molinelli steadily increased his chip stack to win the title for $88,461.
The first player to depart from the final table was Mark Radoja, who walked away with $8,846. Radoja was the only player on the final table to leave with a four-figure prize. Stanislav Kuvaev aka ‘Stas Kuvaev’ followed at the eight spot for $11,796.
At the seventh spot was Portugal’s Joao Vieira, who was just 12 big blinds behind chip leader Molinelli when the FT started. The Portuguese player cashed $15,731. Vieira was followed by French pro Romain Dours aka ‘Flingue.’ Dours took home a pay cheque of $20,977 at the sixth spot. Vince Cavailles, who started with the third highest stack on the FT, departed at the fifth spot with $27,974 in his bank account.
Canadian pro Alex Fortin-Demers aka ‘Pl3ase_MuCk’ was sent home at the fourth spot for a decent sum of $37,303. Milos Petakovic aka ‘Picasso98’ was next in line; as he departed at the third spot for $49,745. This left Molinelli and Bruschi getting into a heads-up.
Brazil’s Bruschi, who started at the FT with the third lowest chip stack of 686,800, was the chip leader when the heads-up began. But Molinelli soon picked up pace and surpassed Bruschi’s stack. This win gives the winner his second WSOP gold bracelet.
