2020 WSOP Online: Yau on then Rampage; Steinman on Top

On the day that 38-acres of prime Las Vegas Strip sold for $108m in a virtual auction, two peeps hopped onto WSOP.com, each bagging a virtual bracelet.

We start with Event #26: $500 No Limit Hold’em Grand Finale, and a 22-year-old from New Jersey walked away with the bracelet and $164,494 in prize money.

Ethan “RampageP’ Yau is a $1-$3 cash game grinder who owns the ‘RampagePoker’ YouTube channel, meaning fans of Yau got to witness the misfortune of 1,676 of his opponents as he streamed the whole thing live.

It was the first time Yau had cashed in a WSOP event. Joining him at the final table was Blake Whittington, who won the 2019 World Series of Poker Circuit (WSOPC) Main Event in Tunica for $151,789. Whittington finished fourth.

Here are the final table results.
