2021 WSOP: Zhi Wu ‘Aces’ Event #8 To Win His Maiden WSOP Bracelet


Event #8: $600 No-Limit Hold’em Deepstack of the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) concluded earlier today. The first Deep Stack tournament of the series featured a buy-in of $600. The three-day event concluded with Zhi Wu dramatically lifting the title to win his first-ever WSOP gold bracelet and $2,81,604 in prize money.

The event witnessed 4,527 entries and generated a prize pool of $23,09,280. Event #8 saw some former bracelet winners like  Asi Moshe, Joey Weissman, and Craig Varnell. However, they were busted before they could make it to Day 3. Day 3 resumed with five new players on the final table eyeing their first WSOP gold bracelet.

USA’s Nicholas Zautra was the first player to leave the final table when his {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts} fell short against Chrishan Sivasundaram’s {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}. Sivasundaram hit a two pair hand on the board of  {7-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} to send off Zautra for $76,974 in the  fifth place.

Next in line was Canada’s Ryan Chan, who departed at the fourth place with $1,00,330 to his bankroll. Chan held {6-Clubs}{4-Clubs} while Wu held {8-Spades}{4-Hearts}. However, the board of  {6-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades}  gave Wu a higher pair ending Chan’s run on the final table.

Sivasundaram was next to leave the table setting the final two for a heads-up. Sivasundaram went all in with his {j-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and Wu called with {7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. The board of  {7-Hearts}{3-Spades}{a-Spades}{9-Clubs}{6-Spades} did no good to Sivasundaram, as he had to depart at the third place with a paycheque of $1,31,675.

Finally in the heads-up, Wu aced his way to the top with his pocket aces against Ari Mezrich’s {10-Clubs}{7-Clubs} on the board of {2-Clubs}{10-Spades}{j-Spades}{3-Hearts}. Mezrich finished at the runner-up spot for $1,73,998
