by Nitya Jain Posted on 18 Jul, 2020

Two more days before the action from WSOP.com moves to GGPoker to host the remaining gold bracelet events. Friday fever pulled in another monstrous field and another prestigious title was awarded to the eventual champion in 2020 WSOP Online Event #17: $777 No-Limit Hold’em.

Top 207 players walked out with a min-cash after ‘ejanicom’ bubbled the tournament in 208th place. But the one to grab the lion’s chunk was California’s Pat ‘IchiiKawawa’ Lyon, capturing his first ever WSOP bracelet. The champion has over $1.58 million in total live winnings with is career-best $615K in 2016 WPT Main Event in Los Angeles. In 2018, Lyon took down WPT Survivor Turbo. The same year he also won a WSOP Circuit gold ring at the Bicycle Casino.
