Anthony Zinno wins yet another WSOP bracelet while Chance Kornuth takes home his third gold bracelet.

In our Sunday WSOP report, we take a look at these wins and other gold hardware awarded on Saturday.

Anthony Zinno wins second WSOP bracelet this month

Anthony Zinno is on an epic hot streak, winning his second bracelet in an as many weeks. One week after taking home the $10,000 Stud Championship, Zinno is back to his old tricks winning the $1,500 HORSE or Friday night, outlasting 594 entries over three days.

In addition to winning the bracelet, Zinno takes home a prize of $160,636. Zinno defeated Randy Ohel heads-up ($99,276), followed by Christoper Adams, Kao Asechao, Darren Kennedy to round out the top 5.

With the victory, Zinno wins his 4th bracelet of his poker career, joining the likes of Shaun Deeb and Joe Cada. Prior to this year, Zinno won his bracelets in the 2015 $25,000 High Roller Pot Limit Omaha as well as the 2019 $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo 8 or Better. We haven’t seen the last of Zinno — he will continue to play through the WSOP in hopes of racking up even more victories. “My goal is to play as many events as I can and play my A-game. I love every variant of poker.”

Scott Ball takes down $5k 6-handed

After 4 days and 604 players, Scott Ball was the winner of Event #25, the $5,000 6-Handed No Limit Hold’em on Saturday night to take home his first gold bracelet and a $562,667 first place prize. The final table, which was streamed live on PokerGo, was populated by some prominent names including John Racener, Galen Hall and Jonathan Jaffe.

But it was Ball who reigned supreme after defeating Galen Hall heads-up, who still won an impressive $347,757 second place prize. Following up Hall ($234,781) was Jaffe ($234,781), Eric Tsai ($161,756), Bin Weng ($113,775) and Racener ($81,736).

In post-match comments, Ball acknowledged he had some tough competition to score the bracelet. “Jon and Galen are incredible players, they are really freaking good. It was really hard, the whole tournament was hard. Every single day I was playing with absolute beasts.”

Dylan Weisman wins $1,000 Pot Limit Omaha

On Saturday afternoon, Dylan Weisman was the winner of the $1,000 Pot Limit Omaha 8-handed, defeating a field of 1,069 entries over three days, including heads-up opponent Craig Chait ($102,884). Weisman, who had accumulated around $200k in recorded live tournament cashes, is perhaps best known as a coach of Doug Polk’s Upswing Poker training site.

Also joining Weisman and Chait at the final table were Alexander Yen ($74,239), Tim Van Loo ($54,230) and Ran Viv ($40,109).

Chance Kornuth wins third WSOP bracelet

Another big name took home a bracelet on Saturday night. Chance Kornuth won his third WSOP bracelet after coming out on top of the $10,000 Short Deck No Limit Hold’em to win $194,670. To claim the victory, Kornuth outlasted a field of 66 players over three days, including Chad Campbell heads-up ($120,316) followed by Dan Shak ($82,678), Moshe Gabay ($58,601), Joao Vieira ($42,885) and Thomas Kysar ($32,437).

Kornuth, who previously finished fourth in this event was happy to close the deal this time around. “It only crossed my mind once when there were like three players left. Ah, I improved on last year! But obviously, anything other than first was going to be somewhat disappointing. I am not great at the game by any means but still very competitive and wanted to do my best. Fortunately, things went my way today.”
