2020 WSOP Online: Wins For Romaine and Guagenti

William Romaine

We have two more bracelet wins to catch up with at the 2020 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Series on WSOP.com.

We begin with Event #28: $1,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 6-Max, and William “SlaweelRyam” Romaine set aside his disappointment at finishing runner-up to Michael “miguelfiesta” Lech in Event #13: $1,500 High Roller Freezeout, by claiming the victory in this one.

Romaine finished 61st in the 2019 WSOP Main Event and adds his online bracelet to an online ring, earned in the same year as his deep run in the big one. Mark Ioli finished second. Ioli came 5/734 in the WPT Venetian Main Event in 2019. Gabe Ramos, runner-up to Yueqi Zhu in 2018 Mixed $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better; Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better; Big O (5-Card PLO/8), finished sixth.

Here are the final table results.

Nick “shadowjacker” Guagenti Wins Event #29: $2,000 No Limit Hold’em DeepStack

Nick “shadowjacker” Guagenti joined Romaine on the podium. Guagenti has finished in the money in 37 bracelet events. Last year he finished third in the $3,000 H.O.R.S.E behind Denis Strebkov and Paul-Francois Tedeschi, and fourth in the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better.

The prognosis didn’t look good for Guagenti given the amount of quality at the final table, but the man from Westerville, Ohio, overcame. Matthew Parry finished fifth in the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha 8-Handed Championship in 2016, James Gilbert is a gold ring winner, and Ryan Tosoc, Ari Engel and Thomas Cannuli all have gold bracelets hidden somewhere in their homes.

Here are the final table results.
