Yong 'LuckySpewy1' Kwon Wins Event #7: $400 No-Limit Hold'em for $165,263

"LuckySpewy1', better known as Yong Keun Kwon, has won the first of nine online events held in the 2019 World Series of Poker.

Kwon took down Event #7: $400 ONLINE No-Limit Hold'em for $165,263. He defeated a field that held 1,965 players with 860 re-buys making for a total of 2,825 entries; one of the bigger online tournaments ever held for a WSOP bracelet.

The last hand of the night was caught after the flop when Gabor "MeatisMurder" Szabo went all-in with an open-ended against the flopped trips of Kwon. No help on the turn or river for Szabo and Kwon was declared victorious.

Online Action

A big story development during this tournament came about when 15-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth tweeted that he was playing in the online event under the name 'lumestackin'. Everyone paid close attention to the 15-time WSOP bracelet as he eyed his first cash of the summer and another WSOP gold bracelet.

Among familiar faces to make the money were Allen "Chainsaw" Kessler (253rd, $813.60), James "ImARocketMan" Obst (167th, $915.30), Alex Foxen (74th, $1,728.90) and Shannon "Aulophobia" Shorr (12th, $10,170).

After several hours of play, the final table was formed with Hellmuth in the middle of the pack:

Hellmuth eventually finished in fifth place, getting his money in with pocket threes against two overcards. His opponent, eventual champion Kwon, hit one of his overs with a ten and eliminated The Poker Brat.

From that point on, 'LuckySpewy1' had the game in complete control. He never looked back, eliminating the remaining players on his way to glory. 'LuckySpewy1' is the online pseudonym for New Jersey online poker player Yong Keun Kwon and it was he who took the gold after going into the final table as chipleader.
