Georgios Sotiropoulos Wins Online Flip & Go Event Of Online WSOP


It was an epic moment when Georgios Sotiropoulos, one of the best Greek poker players, defeated a field of 6,368 entries in the $200 buy-in Flip & Go event. It was an interesting event since the format of this Flip & Go tournament was new. This tourney had 10 flip stages and the dealer dealt three cards to all the players. Every player was supposed to discard one of his cards before the flop.

The flips continued till the time 6,368 entries were reduced to 326 players who made it to the ‘Go Stage’ level. In the final No Limit Hold’em format, players received 40 big blinds to play further. Georgios Sotiropoulos recorded a quick win and grabbed a prize money of $1,17,022. It was Sotiropoulos’ second WSOP bracelet win. This pro had also nailed €1,100 buy-in No Limit Hold’em event at the 2015 WSOP Europe. News reports state this pro now has $2.9 million in his kitty in winnings.
