Helppi, Ishikawa & Clacher Among GGPoker's First WSOP Gold Bracelets Winners
This past Sunday, it was a night to remember on GGPoker as their first-ever WSOP bracelet events — part of a 54-event schedule spread out across the next months — kicked off. Unfortunately, on a night where three bracelet winners were supposed to be crowned, two of the events ran into a critical bug and had to be suspended to next week.
The lightning-fast Event #34: $525 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed — clocking in at a mere 3 hours and 15 minutes start to finish to make it the fastest-ever bracelet event — was unaffected by the technical issues and played out as normal. In total, 2,214 entries of $525 each were made to create a total prize pool of $1,107,000.
In the end, it was Shoma "pp_syon" Ishikawa of Japan writing history as GGPoker's first-ever online bracelet winner, as well as the third person from Japan after Naoya Kihara and Takahiro Nakai to claim the coveted prize. Ishikawa is an emerging talent from the land of the rising
The second event of the festival saw Finnish high-stakes poker legend Juha Helppi doubled his gold bracelet tally in Event #35 $5,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship. Helppi who claimed the lion's share of the $1,558,000 prize pool after topping a field of 328 entries, receiving a first-place prize of $290,286 to go along with the coveted prize.
On Wednesday, Michael "YesPlease" Clacher won the third WSOP bracelet for South Africa in the 2020 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Event #36: $1,500 FIFTY STACK NLHE for $297,496 by overcoming a field of 1,342 players. The third event where a bracelet could be won generated a prize pool of $1,912,350 for 188 players to cash in in the end.

Over the course of two days on July 9th and 10th, the poker world witnessed New Jersey's Ryan "im.sorry" Torgersen accomplish a truly incredible feat.

Welcome to Event #24: $400 No-Limit Hold'em 8-Handed

The final eight-max event features 15-minute blind levels and the $400 buy-in gives players 15,000 chips to play with.
