Molinelli Makes it Two in Two! Wins $2,500 Limit Hold'em Championship ($88,461)

Nicolo Molinelli wins GGPoker WSOP Online Event #3

Less than 12 months ago, Nicolo Molinelli won his first bracelet after winning one of the last events of the 2020 WSOP Online.

This year, he's picked up his second bracelet in one of the first events. He defeated 180 players to win Event #3: $2,500 Limit Hold'em for $88,461.

A former GGPoker Super MILLION$ final tablist, Molinelli becomes the fourth player to win online bracelets in both 2020 and 2021 after Allen Chang, David Peters and Bradley Ruben, but is the first to have won both bracelets on GGPoker.

Day 2 Action

The final day took less than four hours to play down, after a quick exit to start things off from the shortest stack coming in, Mark Radoja. After that, it slowed down a bit, but ultimately the blinds caught up with them and it ended fairly quickly.

Despite coming to the final table with the most chips, it wasn't an easy ride for Molinelli. He was short stacked several times through the final table, and was even all-in at risk when play was five-handed. Runner-up Renan Bruschi got to heads-up play with a big lead, but Molinelli quickly got back into it and took the lead after turning top pair and holding.

It was the second last hand of the game that really did the damage. Bruschi had a good chance to stage a comeback with nearly 3 million chips still behind, and turned two-pair with ace-eight. Molinelli hit gin on the river with a straight however, leaving Bruschi with less than 1 million chips, and the game ended the next hand.
