Some big name pros took a shot at one of the final bracelet events of the year, including Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu, who finished third in consecutive live events at the Rio. He pulled double duty on Sunday, playing online at the same time as he was competing in some live tournaments. The GGPoker ambassador needed to rack up some Player of the Year points but was unable to do so and failed to cash in the Mini Main Event.
Ryan "BITC0IN" Riess, the 2013 WSOP Main Event champion, held the chip lead for a bit after the tournament reached the money. He was eventually eliminated in 20th place for $3,900. Carlos "disco1981" Alvarado busted in 10th place, which paid $7,523, setting up the final table.
At the final table, Turner dominated play and would eventually beat Dylan "Kidnapper" Destefano heads-up for the bracelet. It was the second time this year Destefano came close to winning a WSOP event. He finished 12th in live Event #47: $5,000 Freezeout No-Limit Hold'em 8-Handed. Turner, on the other hand, ran deep in a bracelet event for the first time, and he becomes one of the final WSOP champions of 2021.
