Gerhart (TheRealKG) is no stranger to tournament success. From 2016 through 2019, he recorded 114 live tournament cashes per his Hendon Mob profile. Gerhart entered this series with a circuit ring, a bracelet, and 41 cashes for $302,363 in WSOP events. The Ohio native outlasted a field of 1,137 entries in what was the longest event of the online series to date, clocking in at 13 hours and two minutes.

Chris Moorman (Robotbob47) made his deepest run of the series in Event #20 before eventually settling for fourth place and a prize of $28,601. Moorman is working his way up the $100,000 Online Bracelet Series leaderboard with this being his fourth straight cash; he earned $825 for a 245th-place finish in Event #19, $5,157 for a 27th-place finish in Event #18, and $4,159 for a 33rd-place finish before making the money again in Monday’s event.

Negreanu Busts Hellmuth En Route to a 25th-Place Finish

The online rail for the $500 PLO event was in full swing on Monday evening as Daniel Negreanu (DNegs) and Phil Hellmuth (Lumestackin) were both seated at the same 6-handed table with fewer than 100 players remaining. In the key hand at the table, Negreanu raised under the gun and called a short-stack shove from Hellmuth to his immediate left.

Negreanu tabled the 8♣ 6♥ 4♥ 5♦ and was behind against Hellmuth’s K♥ K♦ Q♦ 10♠. The 7♣ A♠ J♦flop brought no immediate help to Negreanu, but the 4♣ on the turn brought in his backdoor straight draw and the 3♠ on the river completed the nut straight, eliminating Hellmuth in 95th-place ($921). On Twitter, Negreanu lamented the fact that he didn’t get the chance to experience a Hellmuth blow-up in person.

Connor Drinan (666666) once again gave Negreanu a sweat on their $100,000 bracelet bet with another deep run before being eliminated in 11th-place ($5,913)
