One WSOP Gold Bracelet. Three final tables. Fifteen cashes. That was the body of work of Ian "apokerjoker2" Steinman in last year's WSOP.com Online Bracelet Series, one that would be the envy of nearly everyone who fired in last year's version. Steinman, who already has been seeking action on some bracelet bets for this year's series, will be looking to duplicate his many deep runs and massive success this year.
Steinman's heater began last year with two final tables early in the series, with a fifth-place performance in Event #7: $800 NLH Knockout Deepstack for $24,578, followed by a sixth-place finish two days later in Event #9: $1,000 NLH 6-Max for $30,995. Steinman's bracelet would be earned late in the series, when he took down Event #27: $400 NLH Freezeout for $110,557 after beating Japan's Satoshi Tanaka in heads-up play. Steinman used these performances to take down the $100,000 Leaderboard competition of the WSOP.com portion of the series, which sent an additional $18,000 his way.
Steinman doesn't appear to be resting on his laurels in preparing for a summer of poker, however, already getting in some prep work by winning the Benny Binion Summer Shoot-Out at the South Point Poker Room for $65,000 after a three-way deal. As much as winning his first bracelet meant to Steinman, the quest for another crusher of a summer is on for the hyper-talented Steinman.

The virtual cards are in the air for Event #12: $500 NLH Turbo Deepstack with 129 players in their seat from the start.
Another deepstack tournament is being held today WSOP.com with Event #12: $500 NLH Turbo Deepstack starting at 3 p.m. PDT.
Since this is a turbo event, the blinds will be 8-minutes but with it also being a deepstack tournament, the $500 buy-in gives players 40,000 chips to play with.
The tournament allows players to re-enter two times with each re-entry lasting only 30 seconds, so players will need to make sure they have enough funds in their WSOP.com account before the tournament starts if they plan on re-entering.
Late registration and the re-entry option will be open for the first 2 hours and 55 minutes of play. Tournament tickets are not usable for re-entry. This is a single-day event meaning the entire tournament will be played out online and the winner will take home a WSOP Gold Bracelet.
Last year, in Event #22: $500 NLH Turbo Deepstack, it was Allan “Treeoflife” Cheung who toppled a field of 1,579 entrants, earning his first WSOP gold bracelet along with $120,083. The final table included Daniel “juice” Buzgon (4th - $38,725), Brian “JackBogle” Altman (3rd - $53,291), and runner-up Myles "Shipthemoney" Kotler (2nd - $74,039).

All events will begin at 3 p.m. PST. Satellites are running on-site for as little as $1.
