Hellmuth, Negreanu, Goehring and more are keeping the poker action lively
Even though the World Series Of Poker (WSOP) had to run online-only due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, it hasn’t disappointed anyone. The WSOP Online Bracelet Series is only in its early stages, and it is already bringing impressive poker action coming from the best poker players in the world. This series has seen great performances from several poker pros dated from the boom era of live events, like Alan Goehring, who just won Event #8, the $500 No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout for $119,000 on Wednesday.
Goehring has had his history in WSOP events; he was runner-up to Noel Furlong in the WSOP Main Event several years ago. He has also won two World Poker Tour (WPT) titles and has millions in poker earnings.
But he is not the only pro player showing off during this year’s online series. 15-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth has been seeking his 16th bracelet and, while he hasn’t been successful on that part, he has cashed in three of the seven events he played. His best performance so far was during the $400 No-Limit Hold’em Kickoff, where he had the chip lead but ran into some bad luck and ended up in 11th place.
Another big one playing this series is the six-time WSOP bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu, one of the richest poker players in the world. He has more at stake than any other pro player, as he committed to put an end to his seven-year drought of zero winnings of a WSOP event and a bracelet, and he bet good money on it. So far, he has cashed out on three events – nothing major – and none of those cashes were at the final table.
