GGPoker continues to offer premium World Series of Poker (WSOP) tournament action, with players located around the world competing in online poker events. A few more tournaments have concluded recently, giving two more players big gold bracelet wins.

Pieter Aerts was able to claim the first-place finish in Event #8, a 6-Handed NLH Championship event. Ami Barer was able to take down Event #9, the Bounty Pot-Limit Omaha event. Let’s take a look at how the wins went down below.

Event #8 Details

This tournament was a 6-handed NLH Championship event with a large $5,000 buy-in. Once all entries were recorded, the total prize pool up for grabs came in at $2,042,500. Several top players were in the mix, so it would be a tough competition.

The final table would have six players, all hoping to claim the gold bracelet win. The first to go was Benjamin Miner followed by Ioannis Konstas. After that, Yakov Nestervov and Christopher Puetz were gone, leaving Aerts and online player “WouldIlieToYou” going into the heads-up round.

In the end, Aerts would knock out his competitor to earn the win and become the third player from Belgium to earn a WSOP gold bracelet. For his efforts, Aerts would take home $400,213 in prize money.

WSOP continues at GGPoker with more bracelet winners

Event #9 Details

With this online poker tournament, players paid a much lower buy-in of $525 to compete. This was a bounty event, so players had a shot at earning prize money plus whatever bounties they could accrue by taking out fellow competitors. With just over 1,100 players competing, the tournament created a total prize pool of $571,000.

The final table was stacked, and Ami Barer would have to take on Elias Harala in heads-up play to earn the bracelet win. In the end, Barer would claim his gold and earn $60,889 in prize money thanks to $37,178 in bounties and $23,711 in prize money. Harala would have to settle for second place and $27,557 in prizes. He had far less in bounties, with only $3,846.
