2021 wsop bracelets

There were three more gold bracelets awarded on another busy day at the WSOP, including in The Reunion, $1,500 Dealer’s Choice and the $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty.

Find out who the lucky few were that took down WSOP gold during Tuesday’s action.

Long Ma beats a huge field in the Reunion

After three Day 1 flights and two additional days of action we have a winner in the $500 Reunion. Long Ma finishes on top by outlasting 12,973 entries to win a $513,604 first-place prize and his first gold bracelet. Ma, a part-time tournament player, had been a dry spell prior to the win but had a plan going into the final day.

“With a big stack I needed to know from the first few hands whether they would be aggressive with me or slow down and from that I pretty much knew the table and could control my stack and play.”

Following Ma with six-figure scores were Giuliano Lentini ($317,352), Max Tavepholjalern ($241,766), Alex Vazquez ($185,281), Michael Eddy ($142,847) and Anthony Cass ($110,794).

Canadian wins first 2021 WSOP bracelet for county

Jaswinder “Jesse” Lally took down the $1,500 Dealer’s Choice on Wednesday, winning the first gold bracelet for Canada during the 2021 series as well as the $97,915 first-place prize. Lally outlasted 307 entries over three days including Andrew Kelsall heads-up ($60,514).

With the win, Lally, who spends much of his time as a liquor store business owner, easily recorded his largest tournament victory of his poker career. He did this despite not ever playing some of the Dealer’s Choice games.

“I learned a lot playing all these games. Some of these games I’ve never played like Badacey or Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo Regular.”

Michael Perrone wins $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty event

Early Wednesday morning Michael Perrone took down the $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty No Limit Hold’em, the 10th event of the 2021 WSOP. The one-day event attracted 1,640 players including Shaun Deeb, who finished in 59th place for $2,505.

Michael Perrone, who has earned $575,322 in lifetime winnings, originally wasn’t planning on participating in the tournament. “I wasn’t even going to play this event, I was going to go to the Wynn today to play the $1,600 Day 1a.”
