Wexler was ahead with his made hand of fives and nothing changed after the     flop.

Unfortunately for Wexler, the   completed the board on the river eliminating him on the bubble as the shortest stack. Meanwhile, Tsinis exited in 90th place for $3,974.

Delvecchio the Penultimate Bubble Boy

Michael Delvecchio

Weiyi "Wymoney" Mo had been very aggressive on the bubble, often shoving on opponents to swipe pots. Well, Mo opted to open-jam for 773K from middle position and this time Mike "THICC" Delvecchio called off for 86,906 from the small blind.

Mike "THICC" Delvecchio:   
Weiyi "Wymoney" Mo:   

Delvecchio got it in good but Mo got lucky when she paired her king on the     flop. Neither the   turn nor   river helped Delvecchio and he exited empty-handed in 92nd place.

A Look at GGPoker's WSOP Gold Bracelets Winners
WSOP GGpoker
WSOP GGpoker

On Sunday, July 19, GGPoker held its first-ever WSOP bracelet events — part of a 54-event schedule spread out across July, August, and into September. 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

Ishikawa may have been GGPoker's first-ever bracelet winner, but he's not the last. As the series rolls on, several others have been crowned.

WSOP Legend: 10-Time Bracelet Winner Phil Ivey

Phil Ivey

Few poker players have captured the attention of the poker universe quite like Phil Ivey. There have been plenty of champions of the game who crushed it at the felt, but none who built up the mystique of Ivey, who remains to this day arguably the most magnetic player in poker despite results that no longer match his days of utmost dominance.

A day after the anniversary of Ivey's induction into the Poker Hall of Fame, PokerNews examines the legacy of his WSOP success. Prior to 2000, Ivey didn't have any recorded WSOP cashes.

The 23-year-old didn't waste any time establishing himself as one of the top up-and-coming players. That year, after already making one final table and finishing fifth, Ivey secured his first bracelet. He beat none other than fellow Hall of Famer Amarillo Slim Preston heads up to win Event #14: $2,500 Pot-Limit Omaha, a rebuy event, for his first bracelet and $195,000. Three other Hall of Famers — Chris Bjorin, Phil Hellmuth and David "Devilfish" Ulliott — also competed at that final table, so shipping it was about more than just getting his first taste of gold. Ivey showed he could beat the best in the business.

Two years after that, though, would be when Ivey really showed he was the present and future of the game. In 2002, Ivey showcased his skills at limit poker in a big way.

Greg Raymer Looking to Continue 2020 Heater

Greg Raymer

Greg "FossilMan" Raymer, the 2004 Main Event champ, flew into Vegas a couple weeks ago and has been battling to try and capture his second gold bracelet.

Sixteen years ago, Raymer became a poker household name after he bested a field of 2,576 players to win the World Series of Poker Main Event for $5 million. You might remember him defeating David Williams in heads-up play and competing at a final table that hosted such memorable faces as Josh Arieh and Dan Harrington. The "Singing Dutchman" Marcel Luske bubbled that final table finishing in 10th place for $373,000.

Raymer is looking to continue a hot start to 2020 prior to the pandemic. In January, he topped a 520-entry field to win the Heartland Poker Tour East Chicago $1,650 Main Event for $171,411 and his record fifth HPT title. On top of that, he won some smaller tournaments during a guest appearance at Black Oak Casino Resort in Tuolumne, California.

Raymer, the 2012 HPT Player of the Year, was also a guest on the PokerNews Podcast earlier this year, which you can listen to by clicking here.
