Other notables who finished in the top 100 included Mikhail Semin, Anton Morgenstern, Nick Maimone, Toby Lewis and recent WSOP bracelet winner Renan Bruschi.
When the final table started, it was Yuri “sjeverest” Suvorov who held the chip lead, while Livshitz was actually one of the shorter stacks. However, Livshitz quickly went to work, knocking out short stack Shihhui Wang in seventh place. He would follow that up with a double through Lasse Enojarvi, and then eliminate one of the most accomplished players at the final table, Niklas Astedt, in fifth place.
Idris Ambraisse would be the next player to hit the exit, and his knockout was courtesy of Suvorov. Three-handed play took a while, before Livshitz secured the knockout of Shengchao Zhu, when his aces held against the player from Singapore.
And aces would prove the trick during heads-up play, which lasted only a few minutes, with Livshitz holding them once more to eliminated Suvorov and earning himself his first ever WSOP bracelet.
Joshua McCully Leads the Final 37 in WSOP Online Event #16: $1,050 WSOP GGMasters HR Freezeout NLH
Australia’s Joshua McCully ran red hot in the final hour to close out Day 1 as the chip leader of Event #16: $1,050 WSOP GGMasters HR Freezeout NLH in the 2021 GGPoker WSOP Online.

|3||Zac “Pyschedelic” Duce||Australia||1,286,561|
|4||Mor “Yosemite Sam” Leybovich||Israel||1,145,141|

|10||Joao “nobreadpls” Ferreira||Portugal||852,942|
The Aussie spent the day in and around the top ten, but it was a burst of cards late that claimed the Day 1 chip lead. Over the course of just a few minutes in Level 31, McCully went from the middle of the pack to a comfortable chip lead after busting Noam “silverplat” Makavy with kings, George Wolff with tens, and Sosia “Aunty_Ninja” Jiang with ace-king. Other players like Samuel Vousden and Qibing “degenkaliu” Wang are still alive after taking a share of the chip lead at one point in the day before McCully took control. They will return tomorrow for a shot at the WSOP gold bracelet.
