Two more bracelets were handed as part of the Nevada and New Jersey slate of 2022 World Series of Poker Online events this week, with both winners being first-time champions at the series.
Sunday, June 26 played host to the WSOP Online $600 buy-in no-limit hold’em deepstack championship. In the end, William ‘swaggyb’ Corvino of Staten Island, New York overcame a field of 1,248 entries to secure the aforementioned hardware and the top prize of $149,319.
This was the largest score of Corvino’s career, surpassing the $89,784 he secured as the runner-up finisher in a $1,100 buy-in event during the 2017 Big Stax series at Parx Casino in Pennsylvania. He now has nearly $785,000 in recorded tournament earnings to his name.
The strong turnout for that event built a prize pool of $938,520 that was paid out among the top 289 finishers. Among the big names to make deep runs in this event were bracelet winner Yong Keun Kwon (94th – $1,408), two-time bracelet winner Clavin Anderson (76th – $1,689), bracelet winner Alan Sternberg (56th – $2,252), Adam Hendrix (53rd – $2,628), three-time bracelet winner Shankar Pillai (47th – $2,628), bracelet winner Tristan Wade (18th – $5,819), World Poker Tour main event champion Taylor Black (8th – $15,673), two-time WSOP Circuit ring winner Jesse Yaginuma (6th – $27,217), and WPT champion Pavel Plesuv (2nd – $92,350).
The second event took place two days later, on June 28. The $500 no-limit hold’em turbo deepstack attracted an even larger field, with 1,746 entries building a $785,700 prize pool. The last player standing, or more likely sitting at a desk, was Martin Stoyanov.
The Bulgarian, playing under the screen name ‘115FTW’, earned his first bracelet and his first six-figure score ($132,783) as the champion. Prior to this, his largest recorded cash came when he finished 678th in the 2018 main event at the series of $19,900. With this win factored in, Stoyanov has nearly $270,000 in earnings to his name.
The top 248 entries cashed in this event. Among the big names to run deepest were two-time bracelet winner Jason DeWitt (52nd – $2,279), Shannon Shorr (51st – $2,279), ten-time WSOPC ring winner Jeffrey Truedeau Jr. (44th – $2,671), David Prociak (32nd – $3,221), four-time bracelet winner Jeff Madsen (13th – $13,357), and bracelet winner Arkadiy Tisinis (2nd – $81,870).
