WSOP SUPER CIRCUIT ONLINE SERIES UPDATE – RING EVENTS #4 & #5
Monster Stacks, BIG Prize pools and 2 Gold Rings
As the action got underway again yesterday, Gold Ring events were once again centre stage in the $100,000,000-guaranteed WSOP Super Circuit Online Series.
The first ring event of the day was the $200 buy-in WSOPC Ring Event #4: Monster Stack $500K GTD, which attracted a mammoth field of 5,155 hopeful players, nearly doubling its guaranteed prize pool. With 7,295 entries each stumping up the $500 entry price, event #5, the BIG $500 $2M GTD, fared even better generating a prize pool just shy of $4,000,000!
WSOPC Ring Event #4: Monster Stack $500K GTD
After a gruelling fifteen hours of play, 5,155 entrants had become 9 entrants and our final table was set, with $134,909 up top for the winner and, of course, a shiny WSOPC Gold Ring.
The final table was a cagey affair with places 9th to 7th falling slowly until we were 6-handed. A quick flurry of knockouts then had us down to three players: 274AS, Fedor Kruse and finally Kroat, who was representing the UK. Despite going into 3-handed play with relatively equal stacks, Kroat struggled to get any momentum going and was eliminated in 3rd place for a $63,000 payday.
274AS held a slight chip advantage going into heads-up play, and the chip lead would flip-flop between the two until Fedor Kruse was caught bluffing with air following a great call from 274AS with an underpair to the board. With a comfortable chip lead, 274AS never looked back and after 20 minutes more of heads up play, he emerged victorious after spiking a 7 on the river in the final hand to claim the fourth Gold Ring and the $134,909 first-place prize.

WSOPC Ring Event #5: BIG $500 $2M – força Brasil!
With the first ring of the day done and dusted, attention now turned to the big one – the $2M GTD BIG $500 event Day 2.
1,084 players had made it through to Day 2 when play kicked off at 19:00 UTC. Some 900+ elimination later and the prize money bubble was burst. Shortly thereafter, Team GGPoker Ambassador Felipe ‘Mojave’ Ramos grabbed the chip-lead, to the delight of his legion of fans and stream viewers, but sadly it wasn’t to be for Felipe, eliminated as he was in 86th place for $3,249. Fellow GGPoker Ambassador Elky also enjoyed a deep run in WSOPC Event #5 but fell short of the bracelet goal in 67th place.
A few hours later the final table was set and Brazil was 6/4 against to take down the bracelet with four representatives on the final table of nine players. It was to be Brazil’s night, as it turned out, claiming the top three spots courtesy of Neto 10, 3rd place finisher for $362,000, pfckb taking the runner-up spot and $369,000, and our champion BlaireauEnColere claiming the Gold Ring and $330,000 (after a deal was done). Well played all, and especially Brazil!
