The World Series of Poker Spring Circuit has recently wrapped up its action after a 24-day run on GGPoker and  the GGNetwork. There were nonstop games taking place from March 24th to April 17th. As a result, this poker festival has paid out over $32.8 million across its 18 ring events. Israeli player “pisgapoker_1” has managed to come out on top in the Main Event tournament. Read on for festival highlights and results. 

Overview

Let’s talk about some numbers to get a general idea of how successful this festival was. The WSOP Spring Circuit series has attracted 84,831 total ring event entries. The biggest event winner was Conor Beresford, as he managed to take home $728,028 for his victory. As mentioned previously, the Main Event was topped by “pigsapoker_1” for a total prize of $634,855. There were also several players that appeared in multiple final tables. These players were “TTP_Poker”, Pablo Silva, “DAVAIBANKROLL”, Yuri Dzivielevski, and Jon De Antonana Martinez. 

“Pisgapoker_01” Wins the Main Event for $634,855

The $525 Main Event was undoubtedly the most exciting part of the WSOP Spring Circuit series. It boasted a $5,000,000 guaranteed prize pool and has gathered a total of 13,397 entries. As a result, the actual prize pool has increased to $6,698,500, which would be divided among the finalists. Only 2,077 players have made it to the final day. After nine hours of play, Israeli player “pisgapoker_1” has come out on top for $634,855. “Pisgapoker_1’s” previous largest network cash was at the 2020 WSOP $800 Marathon, which saw them finish in the second place for $153,452. 

The Main Event’s final day reached the money round when Vincent “Moist” Huang bursted the bubble. Martin “marlin555” Raus was the chip leader of the final nine. Meanwhile, the eventual champion “pisgapoker_1” was stuck in the middle of the leaderboard. “Pisgapoker_1” has scored their first big pot with pocket eights against Alex Kolonias with 5 3 of clubs suited. The board gave an additional player to the Israeli. However, “pisgapoker_1” has lost a chunk of that win to “pedrinhoOo” with a straight that was dominated by pocket eights turned quads. With the final seven players remaining, “perdrinhoOo” took a piece of everyone’s stack. “Pisgapoker_1” has managed to double up through Raus, which propelled him to second place in terms of the chip count. Soon after that, “pisgapoker_1” carried out their first knockout with A Q against pocket tens of Kolonias. 

With the final four players remaining, there were many big pots and double-ups, which resulted in the fall of “Getaway729”. During the three-handed play, “pisgapoker_1” managed to overtake “pedrinhoOo” with Q 10 two pair over J 2 pair. Soon after that, “pedrinhoOo” took back the lead by knocking out Raus in 3rd place. Even though “pisgapoker_1” had fewer chips during the heads-up round, they still managed to control the game and quickly rise up to the top. The battle culminated with “pedrinhoOo” and their 8 5 up against pocket tens of “pisgapoker_1” on the 6 8 K 9 6 board.

Alex “FutureOfMe” Kulev Wins Mystery Bounty HR 2M GTD for $285,413

The 2M High Roller Mystery Bounty was another popular event during the WSOP Spring Circuit. It has collected 1,565 total entries with the $2,100 buy-in across several starting flights. As a result, the total guarantee was bumped up to $3,130,000. Out of that crowd, only 231 players have made it to the final stage. There were many notable players that got knocked out at this stage. For example, recent ring winners Daniel “zafjekis” Rejmer and Conor Beresford were eliminated in the 57th and 30th place respectively. Damian Salas, the 2020 Main Event champion ran deep and was placed 16th.

There were many famous high rollers from all around the globe at the final table. David Miscikowski was the first elimination from the final table, as he departed in 9th place. With many players struggling to remain in the game, two Asian players reached the final five with Lei “yulie1986” Yu being knocked out in 5th place and “sutem” out in 3rd. The heads-up duel was between Alex “FutureOfMe” Kulev and Swedish online poker legend Niklas Astedt, who was eager to win his third gold ring. However, he would eventually be eliminated by the Bulgarian pro. Kulev took home a network high of $285,413 and his first WSOPC gold ring. Currently, Kulev has over $1.9 million in the GGNetwork winnings.
