Pete Chen Wins Online Event #3: WSOP.com No-Limit Hold'em Ultra Deepstack ($82,559)

Pete Chen

It took just over 12 hours for Pete Chen to overcome a 1,023-player field and claim his first WSOP gold bracelet in Online Event #3: WSOP.com No-Limit Hold'em Ultra Deepstack. Chen defeated "Selvastar7" heads-up and took home $82,559 for his efforts.

Chen is a regular WSOP.com grinder and just recently came off a $5,025 score in July after getting 18th place in WSOP.com Event #32: No-Limit Hold'em Championship. Today's victory marks a career-high online score for Chen, who will add to his $579,059 in previous tournament earnings.

Players began the day with over 1,000 big blinds, but as a result of the event's turbo-like structure, eliminations came fast and furious. It took approximately 8 hours to go from 1,023 entries (including 334 rebuys) to 248 players and burst the money bubble. From that point, the field dwindled to fewer than 100 players just one hour after the money bubble burst.

Notables who managed to cash include Noam "Lokass27" Muallem, Ryan "Protential" Laplante, Chad "Alienprobed" Eveslage, Shawn "clairvoyant" Kjetland, and Daniel "Dnegs" Negreanu, who lost a flip late in the day to get eliminated in 45th place.

The final table began with an average stack of just about 20 big blinds and "Selvastar7" in the chip lead. As expected, the shorter stacks fell in short order, with Chen and "Selvastar7" responsible for five final-table eliminations between them.

Chen was able to enter head-ups with an over 2-1 chip lead, thanks largely to his eliminations of "Meliano34" and Todd "Google_Man" Rodenborn — both of whom Chen eliminated after getting all-in with the worst of it and spiking a pair.

Chen was able to maintain his chip lead throughout the heads-up battle and eventually got "Selvastar7" to commit his stack all-in preflop with a dominated ace. "Selvastar7" managed to take the lead on the flop, but a fateful jack on the river paired Chen's ace-jack and awarded him the victory.

That's a wrap here at Event #3: WSOP.com No-Limit Hold'em Ultra Deepstack. Be sure to stick with PokerNews as we continue to bring you full coverage of both live and online 2021 WSOP events!
