Lynch wins WSOP $1,000 NLH Deepstack 8-Max

3 July 2020

The 2020 World Series of Poker Online Bracelet Events on WSOP.com continued Thursday with Event #2: $1,000 NLH Deepstack 8-Max, a tournament that attracted 647 runners who rebought 272 times to create a 919-entry field ($873,050 prize pool).

The field was chock full of big names, but after 11 hours of play it was the unknown "PokeThese" coming out on top to win a $168,586 top prize. After official results were released on Friday, it turned out to be Louis Lynch from Sinking Spring, PA to become the latest member of the bracelet winners circle. Lynch has over $150,000 in lifetime winnings on The Hendon Mob and eclipsed his previous biggest score of $54,494 over three times.

Lynch defeated Fremont, CA's Ryan "KOVID19" Ko heads-up, with the latter walking away with $104,242 for his efforts.

After "MBEASY" bubbled the tournament in 144th place, the in-the-money eliminations came at a rapid pace. Among those to cash the tournament but fall short of the final table were David "Twizzler" Prociak (128th - $1,484.18), Katie "katelin" Lindsay (122nd - $1,571.49), Ryan "protential" Laplante (106th - $1,571.49), Mike "THICC" Delvecchio (79th - $2,008.01), Jared "DarrensRabbi" Jaffee (56th - $2,444.54)

Also cashing the tournament in 101st place for $1,571.49 was Roland "prngls12" Israelashvili. While it wasn't a big score, it was good enough to extend his all-time WSOP cashes lead to 226.

Another player to go deep was Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu, who was looking to capture his seventh gold bracelet. Unfortunately for "Kid Poker" and his legion of fans, he fell short busting in 18th place after running pocket nines into the tens of Matthew "Mendey" Mendez.

Other to fall short were Matthew "Mendey" Mendez (14th - $7,333.62), WSOP bracelet winner Michael "itwasthator0" Gagliano (13th - $7,333.62), and Josh "YoelRomero" King (9th - $11,960.78).

Daniel "IntoTheRiver" Fischer began the final table as the chip leader, but it was Sean "bahbababa" Prendiville who got down to business early. First, his king-nine bested the ace-jack of Matthew "Michmeister" Mich in an all-in preflop situation, and not long after his pocket queens held against Big Slick to bust Jon "jonnyg93" Gisler in seventh place.

Popular poker pro Jason "haderade" Somerville exited in sixth place after failing to win a race with ace-king against the pocket tens of Louis "PokeThese" Lynch, and then Prendiville's early momentum fizzled when he grew short and busted to Kevin "GoneBananas" Garosshen in fifth place.

Fischer was next to go getting unlucky when his king-ten failed to hold against Ryan "KOVID19" Ko's jack-ten, and not long after Lynch opened up a big chip lead.

Garosshen wound up dwindling to an extreme short stack before bowing out in third place to Ko, who entered heads-up play down more than 3:1 in chips. Eventually, Ko grew even shorter and got it in with queen-six only to see Lynch wake up with pocket sixes and hold.
