By RP, July 1, 2018

Las Vegas poker pro and coach Chance ‘Bingshui” Kornuth achieved the rare distinction of becoming both a live tournament and online World Series of Poker bracelet holder early Sunday morning when he took down the $3,200 buy-in Online High Roller event, besting a field of 356 with 124 re-buys to claim his second WSOP bracelet.

Kornuth claimed the lion’s share of the $1,459,200 prize pool, which enabled 63 entrants to cash, taking home $341,598.

It took nine hours for the final table to form with Kornuth and David ‘bewater’ Goodman holding a significant lead over the other players, a position which they maintained through to the heads up.

Kornuth held a 3 to 1 chip lead over his opponent, which he quickly leveraged into a 5 to 1 lead that Goodman could not overtake.

Goodman’s second placing pay day in this fourth and final online competition in this year’s WSOP was $212,021.

Other final table cashes included:

3rd: Tim ‘poker.’ Nuter – $144,168
4th: Noah ‘ThePunter’ Bronstein – $99,809
5th: Frank ‘flcrivello’ Crivello – $70,625
6th: Taylor ‘ReadyGambo’ Black – $50,926
7th: Justin ‘kingfortune’ Liberto – $37,355
8th: Jonas ‘LobyPewis’ Mackoff – $28,016
9th: Pete ‘petechen’ Chen – $21,596
