An unknown virtual poker player wins a World Series of Poker bracelet in one of the summer’s biggest buys.
Lev “LevMeAlone” Gottlieb earned his first bracelet and $ 276,393 in the $ 10,000 short-deck no-limit hold’em championship in the online WSOP series against international GGPoker in the early hours of Wednesday morning. She beat 130 entries and beat regular Mikita Badziakouski head-up.
There’s just one other event with a $ 10,000 buy-in, an unlimited head-up hold’em event, and a $ 25,000 buy-in poker player championship with a guaranteed prize pool of $ 10 million. Both events are for international players at pisauqq.
It wasn’t just Gottlieb’s first bracelet. It wasn’t only his first tournament win. This is his first tournament cash on record. Needless to say, not much is known about this short deck witch other than the fact that she plays from Mexico.
For Belarusian Badziakouski, he earned $ 210,249 for his runners-up, falling only slightly from his first bracelet. That score brought his career tournament revenue to just $ 29 million.
After Sergi Reixach crashed out in third, Badziakouski started the heads-up game with a better 5: 1 chip advantage over Gottlieb. It was the start of an epic eight hour battle, according to the timestamp in the official live update. Gottlieb finally leveled the pile and the battle saw several lead changes.
Finally, Gottlieb unlocked his own 3: 1 chip lead and finished off Badziakouski when both were all in pre-flop with Gottlieb A’s 10 Club Suit Against Badziakouski K’s Diamond Suit Q Spade Suit. Badziakouski knocked out the top pair, but Gottlieb missed a straight draw.
