Michael Perrone Wins 2021 WSOP Event #10: $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold’em ($152,173)

Michael Perrone

The 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event #10: $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold'em, a one-day freezeout tournament, attracted 1,640 players, generating a $1,408,870 prize pool. Following 16 grueling hours of play in the Brasilia room at the Rio (Amazon room for the final table), Michael Perrone came out victorious. In doing so, he took home $152,173.

Perrone finished sixth in the $3,500 WPT Choctaw earlier this year. He told PokerNews after winning his bracelet at 3 a.m. PT Wednesday morning that it's difficult to compare the final table experiences because, "This one moves so fast that you don't have time to process things."

"It feels incredible," Perrone said of winning the bracelet. "I wasn't even going to play this event, I was going to go to the Wynn today to play the $1,600 Day 1a."

Perrone's friend talked him into playing the Super Turbo instead, and it paid off handsomely for the accomplished poker pro.

In this fast-paced tournament, bounties were worth $300 a pop. A few players didn't make it into the money but still ended up turning a profit for the day thanks to collecting enough bounties.

Tuesday's Super Turbo Action

As the tournament name suggests – super turbo – play moved rather quickly in the one-day bracelet event. Players began with 20,000 chips and the blinds increased every 20 minutes, which forced the competitors into an all-in or fold mode late in the day.

Among the 1,640 entries were a number of big-name pros, including 2018 WSOP Player of the Year Shaun Deeb (59th place for $2,505). The four-time bracelet winner spent hours with an above-average stack but ran into some misfortune later on.

Other high-profile players who made it into the money include Vanessa Kade (227th for $1,065), Alex Livingston (218th for $1,065), Ben Mintz (198th for $1,164), Jeff Platt (161st for $1,331), Cate Hall (82nd for $1,731), and Vinny Pahuja (42nd for $3,393).

When the tournament was condensed to the final 10 players, everyone moved from the Brasilia room over to Amazon. Pierre Calamusa had a fairly large chip lead at the start of the unofficial final table, but every player was technically short-stacked given the large blinds relative to the chip stacks.

Jeremiah Fitzpatrick would have early success at the final table and quickly surpassed Calamusa as the chip leader. Michael Perrone then took over the lead when he used pocket kings to bust Paul Jain and John Moss in the same hand, leaving five players left.

When heads-up play between Perrone and Calamusa began, the eventual champ had a sizable lead. He would push his opponent around a bit, raising frequently and moving all-in preflop, forcing folds. When asked by PokerNews afterward about his heads-up aggression, he said that card distribution was likely a factor and that Calamusa was probably unable to call him down due to having lousy cards.

Congrats to Michael Perrone for winning 2021 WSOP Event #10: $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold'em, his first gold bracelet!
