About the most interesting events that take place at the WSOP 2021.
While everything is going standard there — little-known poker players in the Russian-speaking community win bracelets. The «Old School» is trying to replenish its collection of golden titles.
In Rio, 31 tournaments have already been played (or are coming to an end), in which almost all the first places went to the Americans. The exception was Event #26 NLH Freezeout for $1,000 — Czech poker pro-Dalibor Dula won it. He beat eight Americans at the final table, including Maurice Hawkins, the WSOP-C record holder (14 rings), and Max Coleman.
Doula has been in power for only five years, the victory brought him the first gold bracelet and best cash in his career — $199,227:
«I haven’t figured out what happened yet. I think in a week or so I will feel happy, but now I’m just shocked,» Dula commented.
Only one prize at the WSOP raised Dalibor in the top 100 best Czech players according to The Hendon Mob.
