A Look at GGPoker's WSOP Gold Bracelets Winners
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.

At 6 p.m. UTC, the 2020 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events kicks off again with Event #44: $2,500 NLHE 6-Handed. Lev "LevMeAlone" Gottlieb was the latest bracelet winner on GGPoker when he won Event #43: $10,000 Short Deck No Limit Hold'em Championship earlier today for $276,393, following in the footsteps of Alex Epstein.
In total, nine bracelets have already been awarded on this poker network. Marcelo "Marolo" Pudla, Alex "astazz" Stasiak, Shoma "pp_syon" Ishikawa, Juha Helppi, Michael "YesPlease" Clacher, Hun Wei Lee, Aaron "fishnchip" Wijaya, and Roberto Romanello have won some arm candy over the past ten days.

Players can enter three times in total in case something goes wrong during their first two attempts to run their stack up. Late registration is possible for the first three hours of play and play will continue until another bracelet winner can be crowned.
Even though this is a 6-handed tournament, the final table will feature nine players and their names will also be revealed at that time. The first level of the day will have a small blind of 100, a big blind of 200, and a running ante of 25 which means that players who sit down then will have 125 big blinds to play with.
