The final day of Event #24: $1,050 Bounty Pot-Limit Omaha took just three hours to crown a champion, having another bracelet-winner here in the 2021 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events. The 896 entry field saw just 10 return for the final day, and when the last chance saloon had closed for business it was Dmitry Yurasov sitting in the winner's circle, pulling in $92,711 for his victory, along with a shiny new WSOP bracelet.

This represents the second bracelet for Yurasov, who previously shipped the 2017 WSOP Event #42: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Championship for $775,923.

Yurasov began the day in the middle of the pack and it was not long before he fell to the bottom where he spent the entirety of the day. He managed to guide his short stack through the final table, watching the rest of the group dual it out as he sat near the sidelines, waiting for all of the tournament-saving doubles to come his way.

It was not until three-handed play started that Yurasov began to find his groove, dropping Samuel "FishIdiot" Saariaho to claim his first bounty of the final day. Ami Barer was at a heavy chip advantage but Yurasov instantly turned the tables, when he picked up a set versus the top pair of Barer to score a double, leaving the Canadian in shambles and he has eliminated just hands afterward.

Barer Clears the Way, Yurasov Sneaks in for the Kill

The final table saw Daniel Perkusic sitting atop the leaderboard, having almost double that of the near competitor and Barer had dropped after a slow start to the day. Anson Tsang dropped quickly, leaving six players all in search of WSOP gold and Barer caught wind under his sails. The Canadian went toe-to-toe with the start-of-day chipleader Perkusic, resulting in a momentum swing that sent Barer straight to the top and Perkusic fell to the middle tier stacks.

Fausto "Fantastik55" Tantillo tried his luck versus the red-hot Canadian, only to fall in sixth place after his aces were cracked on the river. Barer was now sitting with the only eight-figure stack and continued to roll, dropping both Perkusic and David "Mclovin86" Mzareulov in the same hand when he turned a straight, setting up three-handed.

It seemed as if no one was going to overcome the heater of Barer but Yurasov somehow shot up from the darkness to land a couple of doubles, parleying that into a Saarahio elimination to bring forth the heads-up portion of this event. Yurasov drew first blood, followed by a tide-turning pot, nailing a set of tens to double through Barer, leaving the Canadian short and he pushed in just hands later, running into the flopped straight of Yurasov who completed his comeback to take down the event, earning his second WSOP bracelet, along with a hefty $92,711 in total prizes.

That wraps it up for the PokerNews live coverage of this event, but tune in throughout the week as the series draws to a near.
