At 6 p.m. UTC, the 2020 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events continue with Event #45: $840 Bounty NLHE for players to get another shot at winning the coveted gold WSOP bracelet. The series has already awarded ten bracelets to ten different winners so who will be the eleventh or will someone win their second in 2020?
Kristen Bicknell won her third bracelet in Event #44: $2,500 NLHE 6-Handed for $356,412 and joins Barbara Enright, Nani Dollison[/b], and Vanessa Selbst as the women who have won three each. Which is also the most any woman has won. And with her qualities, another one will be coming her way in her future.
Marcelo Jakovljevic Pudla, Alek Stasiak, Shoma Ishikawa, Juha Helppi, Michael Clacher, Hun Wei Lee, Aaron Wijaya, Roberto Romanello, and Simon Lofberg are the other players who won a bracelet this year on GGPoker already.
When the players enter the tournament, they get 25,000 in chips. Levels will last 15 minutes each until the final table as that's when the levels will increase every 30 hands. Players can late reg for the first three hours and reenter two times. The tournament is played with a progressive bounty format which means that each time a player is eliminated, 50% of their current bounty is awarded to the player who took them out and the remaining 50% of the bounty is added to their own.
The tournament also has the "Bubble Protection" feature activated which means that players who register the tournament before the start will have it. Those players will get their buy-in compensated if they are eliminated during the actual bubble.
PokerNews will be there from the first shove until the final hand so make sure to follow along with the live action right here.
