Natural8 2020 WSOP Online Performance of the Week: Ryan "protential" Laplante Cashes 9 Events in a Row
Ryan Laplante
Ryan Laplante

The 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) online bracelet events began at the beginning of July and will run through September 6th. It is comprised of 85 WSOP gold bracelets on the digital felt across two different clients: and GG Poker.

Each week, we'll highlight those players who rise to the top through their performance, be it a dominating one in a single event, or an exhibition of consistency over several tournaments. Here's a look at the POTWs thus far:

Through the first 22 events of the 2020 WSOP online series, no player had cashed more events than Learn Pro Poker founder and coach Ryan "protential" Laplante, who had 14 scores to his credit (more than any other player) totaling a combined $35,163.

While Laplante failed to make any final tables, let alone win one, his consistency was a testament to his hard work and professionalism as a poker player. The former bracelet winner epitomized what it means to be a grinder.

However, what was really impressive last week was the fact that Laplante had cashed the nine tournaments in a row.
