Yesterday, the final phase of the Flip & event concluded. The Go Bracelet Tournament ends at GGPoker, the cheapest $100 bracelet tournament on the published schedule.
Dozens of flip stages made it possible to crack the promised million guarantees, with poker players sharing from $1,260,365 to . A total of 798 players made it to the finals (and thus went directly to the ITM).
GGPoker Ambassador Daniel Negreanu has the biggest stack. It’s unclear how much money he’s invested in the game and how many times he’s flipped the stage. However, he started with 2,700 BB and averaged 40 BB.
In order to win the long-awaited gold bracelet, Negreanu even went live and attracted more than 6,000 viewers within minutes. With a huge lead, KidPoker began his path to victory.
Despite having so many chips, it is impossible to win the championship again. Negreanu gradually lost ground and ended up in 53rd place. His bonus was $2,652.
The prize funds Daniel’s investment in Flip & Go tournament, as he would definitely need more than 26 Stage 1 entries to get that many starting chips.
For comparison, last year Viktor Malinovsky decided to play the same way. He made 135 bets for $100 and won 1,255 big blinds. Negreanu makes twice as much.
The best result in Russian was achieved by Ukrainian player Andrey Derzhipilsky. He finished 12th and earned $6,168.
In such a difficult competition, the player with the Vietnamese flag won. He won his first gold bracelet and $122,000 in prize money and started another freeroll, earning a $100,000 ticket to the WSOP Paradise in the Asian continent.
