2021 WSOP: Tyler Cornell Marks His First WSOP Victory At Event #6


Another glorious event of the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) concluded earlier today. Event #6: $25,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold’em, which went on for three long days finally drew curtains with American player Tyler Cornell lifting the title and grabbing his career’s first WSOP gold bracelet.

The event witnessed 139 entries and managed to generate a prize pool of $32,83,875. This was Cornell’s third appearance at the 2021 WSOP and he finally managed to grab the gold bracelet and $8,33,289 in prize money. The 33-year old is a popular name in the online poker circuit and has also played several WSOP online events. He finished eighth at the GGPoker WSOP Event #77: $5,000 Main Event last year.

The day resumed with five players on the final table and Cornell leading the pack. The first casualty was Italy’s Mustapha Kanit. The Italian’s {a-Spades}{k-Hearts} failed to save him from Jonathan Jaffe’s {q-Clubs}{10-Clubs} on the board of {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{6-Spades}{9-Clubs}{4-Hearts} . Kanit departed in fifth place for $2,16,842.

After eliminating Kanit, it was Jaffe’s turn to exit the table. Michael Liang’s suited ace-king of spades overpowered Jaffe’s suited king-five of hearts on the board of {j-Clubs}{9-Spades}{4-Spades}{9-Spades}{6-Hearts}. Jaffe walked away with $286,202 from his fourth-place finish.

Three-time WSOP bracelet winner Adrian Mateos, who had one of the most dramatic runs on the final table, bid farewell to his mates at the second runner-up spot. The Spanish player, who doubled up and took the chip lead multiple times succumbed to Cornell’s pocket nines with his {a-Hearts}{9-Clubs} on the board of  {7-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{8-Clubs}{4-Spades}. Cornell, who first went all-in pre-flop was saved by his nine-pair as Mateos departed for $3,81,870.

The heads-up between Cornell and Liang was an intense one as Liang gave Cornell a real run for his stack. However, Cornell managed to make his way to the top and bust Liang’s {k-Spades}{2-Diamonds} with his {a-Clubs}{2-Clubs}, when the board opened to {a-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} . Liang took home $5,15,014 from his runner-up finish.
