Brazil’s Leonardo Mattos worked his way through the final table, defeating Christopher Putz heads up to take down WSOP Online Event #59 and win his career-first bracelet along with a massive chunk from $2.51 million prize pool.

The WSOP Online Event #59: $2,500 NLHE attracted a crowd of 1,061 runners. Mattos was responsible for bursting the bubble eliminating Patryk ‘weedsmoker93’ Poterek. GGPoker Ambassador Daniel Negreanu busted at the same time by Thiago ‘grigopoker’ Grigoletti. Money reached the top 152 players who locked $5,478 min-cash.

Mottos railed out Christopher ‘RambaZamba’ Putz heads-up for the top prize, making it the 4th bracelet for Brazil in the ongoing series by joining Marcelo Pudla (Event #32), Yuri Dzievielevski (Event #42) and Luis Eduardo Garla (Event #55). The winner also took home the exciting WSOP Europe package! The champion’s biggest live cash was $98K for finishing 4th in BSOP Millions Main Event but with this win, he has surpassed his record of $100K by almost reaching the $500K mark.
