The 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online concluded Sunday, with the last event crowning Dan ‘Feeltheflow’ Sindelar with the gold bracelet and a $159,100 prize.
The 2021 WSOP Online Event #33: $500 NLH Grand Finale was the 33rd – and the last – event of the summer series.
The online event attracted as many as 1,355 players, who rebought 669 times. With a 2,024-entry field, it turned out to be the largest of the series, and the tournament saw a whopping $1 million guaranteed.
Twelve hours of play decided the tournament for Dan “Feeltheflow” Sindelar, who won a $159,100 top prize and his first-ever gold bracelet.
Final Table Action
Every player at the final was looking to win their first WSOP bracelet but Dan “omg its dan” Gallegos was the first to fall after his pair of queens was straightened out by “chuckybrown9”.
The next two eliminations followed swiftly after the final woman standing Anna “Dusty4” Antimony jammed her remaining chips amidst a suited king-queen that was called by Guy “PhilLaak” Dunlap with an overpowering suited ace-queen. Dunlap, who hails from Oregon, finished off Conrad “kerriP” Simpson as he rivered a two-outer, concluding their final table journey in eighth and seventh place, respectively.
“chuckybrown9” exited in sixth place, and then Drew “casualcarl” Gonzalez fell in fifth place.
All the excitement now came down to the final four sitting fairly even. The first few levels passed without much chaos until Dunlap was stripped of a majority of his stack in a failed bid to bluff against Lee. He fell shortly after in fourth place.
The final three vied for some time, with Fred “staeks” Li securing a few doubles before he attempted to get a big blind special with a suited seven-deuce and was called by Lee with a jack-nine offsuit. Li, who dopped a seven but Lee made a nine-high straight securing second place for $98,400.
Li took home $71,500, good for his third place.
Despite having a 3:1 chip advantage, Lee failed to win against his more formidable opponent. Sindelar proved to be invincible once he secured an early double, securing a well-earned victory.
