Event 79: $1,979 Poker Hall of Fame Bounty No Limit Hold'em
Winner          Ole Schemion
Runners          468
Paid          71
Final Table          9

Player          Position          Points         
Yueqi Zhu          18          1         
Joao Vieira          36          1         

Selector    Points

Jo 1    1                  
John 2    1                  
Rob    1                  

There was a time when Schemion used to get quite a few picks from our selectors, but those days are long gone, as he never repaid them. Well here he is now, and no-one has picked him.

Vieira seems to be on every results list. He cashed in five of the nine tournaments from #71 to #79 - unfortunately they were all quite lowly results, so all that effort generated a total of just five points.

11th place in the $10k Razz went to Shirley Rosario.
Shirley's other pastime is rollerball, so would you prefer a shot of her with the poker players or the rollerballers?
Don't answer. Here's the photo. Shirley is centre, looking back.

Benny sometimes seems to have an untouchable quality, as he frequently runs up a huge stack. He used to convert that into a win quite easily, though the ability to close seemed to have deserted him, and it was five years since his last bracelet, despite numerous finals and top three finishes. In this Series, he has clocked up 2nd, 3rd and 9th places, which were disappointments, as he had big leads in them all. Now he has done it, and collected his 4th bracelet.
The points are starting to flow now. Can Jo hold Stephen off?



Glaser's heads-up opponent, Everett Carlton, was taking Covid seriously.

Joanello's Brazilian rail was as noisy as the French one, but there weren't many points here for us.

Romain Lewis finally gets his bracelet! In 2018 Romain was 2nd twice and 3rd twice, so it was extra sweet for him to nail this win against a top field. The French provided one of the noisiest rails so far for the 'Champion du Monde'.
2019 Main Event runner-up Dario finally kicked in a few points and it was good to see Yevgeniy Timoshenko, who has been quiet for a couple of years, back on a final table.
It was a miss for Jo as others picked up points. The beginning of the crumble?

Chad Himmelspach had a bad time on Day 1 and was down to one BB near the end, though he managed to increase this to 9BB to finish the day 107th out of 118.
Day 2 was completely different, and he multiplied his stack from 89,000 to 4 million, to sit 4/8 going into the final day.
Day 3 was even better.

Denis Strebkov is none other than aDrENalin710, the greatest player in WCOOP history with nine titles.  This is his second bracelet - he won Event #87 at the end of the 2019 Series and this is his first cash this year, so his record shows successive firsts. ME finalist Jerry Wong followed tenth in #72 with second in this.

Scott Bohlmann won this event in 2018, was 8th in it in 2019 and 9th this year, so it looks like he's on the slide.

Hastings is oblivious to almost impaling his hot AF wife, Miami-based ex poker dealer Sonya, at the WSOP.

Brian Hastings has done nothing this Series - just a couple of small cashes. And then, Kazaam!, another bracelet. Like him or not, and a lot don't, he's got the goods when it comes to poker, and he joins the ever-expanding five-bracelet club by beating one of the strongest fields imaginable.Top points for Karen.

David (rUeTaMa) Moses became known as 'The Global Grinch' due to his unhappiness with the site, and then adopted the persona.
