Romain Lewis Captures First Bracelet in 2021 WSOP Event #76: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty

Romain Lewis

The 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event #76: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty reached its conclusion on Tuesday, and out of 307 bounty hunters, Romain Lewis came out on top to win his first WSOP bracelet and a $463,885 grand prize

Lewis is a well-known player from Latresne, France who has over a million in career WSOP earnings. He has come very close to a bracelet before with two second-place finishes and two third-place finishes, all in 2018.

He discussed how he has grown to appreciate the moments where a bracelet is a real possibility and how good it felt to finally finish off one of those moments with a victory.

"All the different deep runs I made a couple of years ago, I was so happy with those results, but when I looked back a few years later, I was like wow bracelets are not that easy. These spots don't come that often. It's been a ten-year dream and I put a five or six-year objective to win one and for it to happen now…it makes me ecstatic it really does.

This victory is extra sweet for Lewis as he bested a field littered with some of the best no-limit hold'em players on the planet.

"A tournament like this, with so many really really good players, [you have to] run really well at the final table when it's so short-stacked, it's just amazing," he said.

Throughout the day, Lewis was bolstered by a boisterous French rail who screamed at every pot he won no matter how small and even broke into song on a few occasions. When the final card fell to secure the victory, Lewis went over to embrace the mob as they swallowed him up.

"We have 30 or 40 really close friends from France supporting this whole series. Every time one of us makes a deep run, there are chants like as if it's a football stadium and brings out the special elements of the WSOP which doesn't happen anywhere else."

Action of the Day

The day began with just seven players and all but one had a short stack with the ever-increasing blinds. The first victim was Yevgeniy Timoshenko, who hit the rail in seventh place when his eights ran into queens.

After several jams without any callers for an entire level, the next player to fall was Dario Sammartino who was eliminated in sixth after he lost two all in's to Stephen Chidwick.

Barth Melius was the next to go in fifth place after falling to Aditya Agarwal's flopped ace to crack his jacks. Uri Reichenstein would be the next to follow him out the door as he too was eliminated by Agarwal to bring the field down to the final three.

Three-handed play was short-lived as Chidwick lost a big all-in to Lewis to be left very short stacked and was then eliminated shortly thereafter. Chidwick, however, did have the distinction of collecting the most bounties in the tournament as he had a stack of about fifteen, far more than any of the other remaining player.

Heads-up play began with Agarwal holding a 2:1 chip lead on Lewis but on the second hand, Lewis would double up. Agarwal fought back with a double the very next hand as the pendulum swung wildly. A few hands later, Lewis collected a huge double to leave Agarwal short when his pocket fives held up versus two overcards. He finished him off shortly after to collect his first WSOP bracelet.

Congratulations to Romain Lewis, the 2021 WSOP Event #76: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty champion!

Winner Will be Crowned Today in Event #76: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty

Stephen Chidwick

The final day of Event #76: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty gets underway today, November 16, at 2 p.m. local time. Yesterday's Day 1 saw 307 bounty hunters generate a $1,941,775 prize pool, and today, seven players will be playing for the lion's share of it.

Starting the day off in the top spot is Aditya Agarwal, who bagged the biggest stack by a wide margin with 8,750,000 chips. Agarwal performed solidly on Day 1, continually adding to his stack throughout the day, to sit down at the unofficial final table with the chip lead.

From there, he ended the final level with three eliminations to increase his chip lead; Agarwal hasa 55 big blind stack to start the day. Agarwal has his eyes set on gold and has put himself in a prime position to get it.

Barth Melius sits second in chips after being the only other player to bag over 3 million with 3,550,000 in chips. Sitting behind Melius is the only player at the final table who already owns some WSOP hardware, Stephen Chidwick, who sits third in chips with 2,600,000. Chidwick will be the only player looking to capture a second WSOP bracelet at the final table, but it won't be easy as action will be fast, and he sits with that stack worth only 14 big blinds.

The rest of the remaining seven players are all accomplished pros who have millions of dollars in live tournament earnings, and each is on their quest to claim their first WSOP gold bracelet.
