Nuno "Albertov" Capucho Wins First Bracelet and $190,274 in Event #23

After a bit more than 4.5 hours of play on Day 2, Nuno "Albertov" Capucho is the last player with chips in Event #23: $600 Deepstack Championship of the 2021 GGPoker WSOP Online. He made it through 2,820 entries from the Day 1 field, and the 49 returning players on Day 2 to win $190,274 and his first bracelet. That was the biggest share of the $1,607.400 prize pool, but the final table split almost half that with $703,716 for the final nine alone.

Capucho was on fire on the final table, eliminating every player save one. James "PHJ10" Carroll managed to eliminate start-of-day chip leader James Chen in 4th place, but then Carroll promptly fell to Capucho in 3rd to set up the heads-up play. Capucho certainly ran well, holding when he was ahead, and getting there when he wasn't, but he also picked his spots well.

Karolina "KarolinaNe" Norvaisaite put up a valiant fight heads-up. She came into the final phase at nearly a 3:1 deficit, and chipped up to almost 50 million, within striking distance of the lead. That was as far as she could get though, and when it got down to a race for all the chips at the end, it seemed inevitable that Capucho would bust the final player.

GGPoker Team Brazil player Felipe Ramos looked like he might make a run for his first bracelet. He made a late day surge on Day 1 to bag a medium stack, and managed to turn that into a final table appearance. It was short-lived however, as Ramos was the first to fall victim to the Capucho final table steamroller.
