Vousden’s Final Table Rally

Vousden found himself near the top of the leaderboard for the first part of Day 2 until a run-in with the aces of Zubov dealt the eventual winner a temporary setback. As the final table began, Vousden was eighth in chips and treading water. The first sign of a turn around came when he pressured Zubov to fold a big pot on the river. Shortly after, Vousden found a double with pocket kings against Bernardo Granato and chipped up almost immediately with a set of sixes against Nicolo “Do-WhatYou-lov3” Bartolone.

Ten seats, each worth $10,000, to the 2021 World Series of Poker Main Event are up for grabs between August 2-22 as GGPoker lights a fire under the ClubGG site.

Vousden soon busted Zubov in eighth place with pocket jacks before taking a big pot from Sergei Denisov that started to build a cushion on the chip lead. The champion-elect quickly ousted Denisov in sixth before eliminating Bartolone with three flopped jacks in fifth place, and Granato in fourth with ace-king.

With three players left, Vousden kept the pressure on with pre-flop raises before Qibing “degenkaliu” Wang took control of the chip lead on a double up with ace-king. Wang eliminated Zac “Pyschedelic” Duce in third and entered heads up play with a small lead over Vousden. After scooping back-to-back pots to open up an advantage, Vousden finally put Wang away with a flush to win his first WSOP gold bracelet.
