American player wins a WSOP bracelet on a live stream
The third bracelet event, which was carried out at WSOP.com as part of the WSOP Online 2020, attracted 1 450 participants. 641 of these players took advantage of re-entry, so the total number of entries equaled to 2 091.
This allowed a prize pool to reach the mark of $752 000, and after 12 hours of grueling play, Robert "bustinballs" Kuhn managed to take down the event. The first place brought him $115 850, as well as a WSOP bracelet (first in his career).
There weren’t too popular poker players at the final table. We’ll note Roland Israelashvili, who registered his 115th cash at WSOP. However, the guy has never managed to win a gold bracelet. This time, Roland took eighth place and earned $12 000.
Robert Kuhn is a professional poker player from Ohio. Kuhn often streams his play on Twitch, and this tournament was no exception. That evening, the player decided to conduct a stream for a special occasion: he was fighting for a WSOP bracelet.
The viewers received an opportunity to watch the poker battle live, and they eventually got what they wanted: Robert's victory. Now, the winner is waiting for a coveted gold trophy.
Prior to this victory, there were 19 WSOP cashes totaling to $373 000 on Kuhn’s record. The guy also has a WSOP Circuit ring, which he received for winning the Main Event WSOPC Atlantic City in 2016.
More than 1 000 people were watching Kuhn’s participation in the WSOP Online tournament, and 38 000 fans of poker viewed the final hand.
It should be reminded that the American part of the WSOP 2020 is currently taking place at WSOP.com poker. If you want to take part in it, then you need to remain within the borders of certain US states. This is the only way to be eligible to play these tournaments.
The rest of the world is waiting for July 19, because the second stage, that is WSOP Online at GGPoker, starts on this day. You can participate in the international part from any place in the world and win a WSOP bracelet without leaving your home.
