Joon “jykpoker” Kim Wins 2020 WSOP Event #7: $800 NLH Knockout Deepstack ($103,127)

Event 7 Final Hand

On Monday night, the 2020 World Series of Poker Online Event #7: $800 No-Limit Hold'em Knockout Deepstack attracted 989 players, which resulted in a $731,660 prize pool. After nearly 12 hours of play, it was Joon "jykpoker" Kim coming out on top to win a $103,127 top prize, $3,000 in bounties, and his first gold bracelet.

Prior to the win, Kim had 11 WSOP-related cashes totaling a modest $19,113. Five of those cashes have come in events, including an 87th-place finish two days prior in the $1,000 NLH Freezeout event.

2Stephen "bunsamillion" McManus$63,767$2,000
3Eric "CircleBall" Baldwin$44,914$1,600
4Jason "Gunner_Q10" Gunn$32,044$1,800
5Ian "APokerJoker2" Steinman$23,178$1,400
6Lee "smallmytable" Gale$16,983$1,400

8Jonathan "fan_sawyer21" Love$9,560$1,200
9Joseph"thehofffx" Hoffman$7,316$1,400

After Sean "PetyrBaelish" Hegarty busted on the bubble in 144th place, the in-the-money finishers included Nipun "javanti" Java (103rd - $961.30), Brian "JackBogle" Altman (86th - $1,121.52), Matt "RubberFist" Stout (80th - $1,228.33), Jared "DarrensRabbi" Jaffee (56th - $1,495.36), Ryan "bitc0in" Riess (33rd - $2,403.27), and Layne "scoop87" Flack (13th - $4,486.10).

Poker commentator and PokerNews Podcast co-host Jeff "mavsusc" Platt began the final table with the chip lead, but it proved to be a contentious affair with multiple players pulling out in front. Joseph "thehofffx" Hoffman was the first to fall after losing a flip with Big Slick to the pocket jacks of Lee "smallmytable" Gale and then Jonathan "fan_sawyer21" Love followed after suffering a bad beat with ace-ten against Eric "CircleBall" Baldwin's ten-nine when a nine spiked on the turn.

At that point the stacks had evened out a bit and Platt saw his run, which he was streaming in Twitch, come to an end in a blind-versus-blind hand against Kim, who shoved the small blind with queen-jack. Platt called off getting it in good with king-deuce suited, but he wasn't rewarded for it as a queen spiked on the flop.

Kim then eliminated Gale in sixth place when his ace-nine held against king-jack, and then Ian "APokerJoker2" Steinman took his leave failing to get there with ace-jack against the pocket kings of Stephen "bunsamillion" McManus.

With four players remaining, two-time WSOP bracelet winner Baldwin's Big Slick held against Jason "Gunner_Q10" Gunn's ten-jack suited to dispatch the latter, but Baldwin soon followed him out the door after running sevens into Kim's aces in a big pot.

Kim began heads-up play with a nearly 5:1 chip lead over McManus, and it didn't take long for him to close the deal when his king-nine flopped top pair against queen-seven all in preflop.

The next tournament on the schedule – Event #8: $500 NLH Freezeout– will take place at 3 p.m. PDT on Wednesday. The PokerNews Live Reporting Team will once again be reporting all the action, so be sure to tune in then to see who captures the next 2020 WSOP bracelet!

Jeff "mavsusc" Platt:   
Joon "jykpoker" Kim:   

Platt's king-high call preflop had him ahead of Kim's queen-nine, but the     flop was unforgiving, as Kim found top pair and a gutshot for the lead. The   turn and   river wouldn't bring Platt a king, and the PokerNews Podcast co-host was left with 7th place and $12,657.22 for his deep run.
