Drew “dudeguydrew” O’Connell Wins 2021 WSOP Online Event #32: $1,000 NLH Championship ($146,893)

Drew O'Connell

On Saturday night, the penultimate tournament of the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online took place. Event #32: $1,000 NLH Championship attracted 537 players who rebought 284 times, which resulted in a $738,900 prize pool.

After nearly 11 hours of play, New Jersey's Drew "dudeguydrew" O'Connell prevailed over the 821-entry field to win the tournament for $146,893 and his first gold bracelet.

It was the second piece of WSOP gold O'Connell has captured in 2021 after winning his first circuit ring back in March in the Silver Legacy Circuit Event #4: $50,000 GTD NLH Deep Turbo. A week later, he also finished second in Event #12: $150,000 GTD NLH High Roller 6-Max for $39,044.

It was a bit of redemption for O'Connell, who just two days earlier finished sixth at the final table of the 2021 WSOP Online Event #30: $600 NLH 6-Max Championship for $13,615.

Prior to the score, O'Connell had $129,873 in WSOP-related cashes.

Final Table Action

Event 32 Final Table

Minutes into the final table, Millard "meekmill" Hale got his stack all in preflop with ace-king and was primed to double through Kyle "Kpcp22" Phillips, who held ace-queen. Unfortunately for Hale, a queen appeared on the flop and he became the first final table casualty.

Despite scoring the first knockout, Phillips was the next to go after running pocket nines smack dab into the jacks of Jason "jayriv" Rivkin. From there, Michael "annie_r_u_ok" Trivett lost most of his stack with king-queen against aces, and then he got his crumbs all in preflop with queen-deuce alongside Dan "omg_its_dan" Gallegos, who was at risk with pocket tens, and Rivkin, who had Big Slick suited. A king on the turn gave the pot to Rivkin, who scored a double knockout.

MSPT champ Kfir "Nahumus" Nahum bowed out in fifth place after getting it in with trip queens on the turn only to see Alex "OrcinusOrca" Foxen, who was at his third final table of the summer, roll over queens full of kings. Not long after, Foxen followed him out the door after flopping top pair of nines against O'Connell, who had him crushed with two pairs nines and sevens.

Three-handed play lasted a good bit before Felix "madenspauwke" Vandeput lost with ace-deuce to the ace-ten of Rivkin, who entered heads-up play down just a bit in chips against O'Connell. Rivkin, who qualified for the tournament via a $37 satellite, took over the chip lead, but O'Connell doubled through, and not long it was over.

In the final hand, Rivkin got his short stack all in preflop with ace-three only to see O'Connell have him crushed with ace-queen. Rivkin had to settle for second place and $90,811 in prize money, a healthy return on investment from the satty.

The 2021 WSOP Online will conclude on Sunday with the final tournament of the series – Event #33: $500 NLH Grand Finale , which features a $1,000,000 guarantee. PokerNews will be live reporting and streaming the action, so be sure to join us then.

WSOP Legend: Doyle Brunson's Final Bracelet

WSOP Legend Doyle Brunson

At the beginning of the 2005 WSOP, Doyle Brunson remained the co-king of the all-time bracelet count, tied along with Johnny Chan at nine. However, as the series drew toward its close in late June, that was no longer the case — Chan had overtaken him by winning No. 10 to stand atop the mountain alone.

Brunson was already phasing out his tournament play, having cashed precisely zero times that summer and just three times in the previous two combined, although one had resulted in a bracelet victory.

When it came time for Event #31: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed, Brunson dusted off his tournament chops and made a run.
