The 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online continued Saturday with Event #10: $333 No-Limit Hold'em, which drew 986 players who rebought 531 times. The 1,517-entry field resulted in a $455,100 prize pool, and after 11 hours of play, it was Michael "njnj17" Leib coming out on top to capture an $81,644.94 top prize and his first gold bracelet.

Leib’s win came four days after he made a deep run in Event #6: $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em, which was good for $5,695. The win was far and away the biggest of Leib’s career as he has $27,797 in prior WSOP cashes and $14,865 in live earnings according to The Hendon Mob.

Final Table Action

Early on at the final table, George "gkon86" Konstantoulakis ran a bluff but got snapped off by Robert "LuckyLuch11" Aronowitz, and then Leib won a big pot with ace-queen against the pocket nines of Michael “MMenz08816” Menzer and eights of Vinny “Vinnyj88” John, who bowed out in eighth and seventh place respectively.

Mijael “Diaper_money” Meza exited out in sixth place when their ace-ten was outdrawn on the river by the queen-jack of Aronowitz, and then Michael “helionic” Dyer, who finished third in the 2018 WSOP Main Event for $3.75 million, ran ace-nine into Leib’s Big Slick to fall in fifth place.

Dan “oiltrader513” Shak exited in fourth place when his ace-six suited failed to overcome the pocket sevens of Leib, and then Aronowitz saw his queen-six hold against queen-four to dispatch Richard “3ofspade” Bruner in third place.

Dan Shak
Dan Shak came a few spots shy of winning his first bracelet.

Heads-up play began with the final two players dead even in chips, but a set-over-two-pair hand benefitting Leib gave him a monster lead. Not long after, Aronowitz, a social studies teacher from New York playing from Borgata in Atlantic City, committed his short stack with a gutshot straight draw but failed to get there against middle pair.

The 2021 WSOP Online continues on Sunday with Event #11: $400 NLH Ultra Deepstack. PokerNews will be live reporting and streaming the action, so be sure to join us then.

Event 10 Final Hand

In what would be the final hand of the tournament, Michael "njnj17" Leib raised the button to 560,000 and Robert "LuckyLuch11" Aronowitz called.

When the flop fell {3-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}, Aronowitz moved all in for 1.6 million and Leib called.

Michael "njnj17" Leib: {7-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Robert "LuckyLuch11" Aronowitz: {5-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}

Aronowitz went with the gutshot and would need to hit it to overcome Leib's pair. That didn't happen though as the {10-Hearts} bricked the turn followed by the {j-Hearts} on the river.

Set over Two-Pair Puts Leib on the Verge

• Level 41: 120,000-240,000, 30,000 ante

Michael "njnj17" Leib raised from the button and was called by Robert "LuckyLuch11" Aronowitz.

The flop came the {k-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{3-Spades}. There was a bet and call to swell the pot a bit more.

The turn came the {4-Diamonds}. Leib bet 755,000. Aronowitz raised to 1,900,000. Leib took his time before three-bet jamming all in which Aronowitz called.

It was a cooler as Leib had the {3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} for a set over the {k-Clubs}{4-Hearts} of Aronowitz. The river came the {5-Spades} and Leib was on the doorstep of a bracelet. However, Aronowitz gathered a couple of small doubles after to give himself a fighting chance.

Richard "3ofspade" Bruner Eliminated in 3rd Place ($35,907)

Chad_Holloway • Level 40: 100,000-200,000, 25,000 ante

Richard "3ofspade" Bruner moved all in for 1,141,528 from the small blind and "LuckyLuch11" called from the big.

Richard "3ofspade" Bruner: {q-Hearts}{4-Clubs}
"LuckyLuch11": {q-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}

The board ran out {7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{q-Spades}{j-Spades} and both players wound up with two pair. Unfortunately for Bruner, his was inferior and he had to settle for a third-place finish.
