WSOP Online: Bibat Grabs Second Bracelet of Series, Gagliano Breaks Through With Win

The World Series of Poker Online has passed the halfway point and Tanner Bibat highlighted the last week of action at WSOP.com. He scored his second bracelet of the series and Jordyn Miller also produced a win and a runner-up finish.

No stranger to online poker success, Michael Gagliano found his second bracelet. Some other interesting wins played out over the last week as well. Here’s a look at some of the recent action.

Event 19: $1,500 No Limit Hold’em

After finishing runner-up in the 17th event of the series, Jordyn  Miller went one better. He took down this tournament for $96,914 and his first bracelet.

The tournament produced a field of 332 entries for a $456,500 prize pool. New Jersey’s Angel Lopez snagged runner-up for $69,845. Miller was thrilled with the biggest win of his career.

Event 18: $1,000 NLHE Turbo Deepstack

New Jersey online poker regular and BetMGM/partypoker US ambassador Michael Gagliao (pictured in lead image) struck gold for $62,756 in this event. He now has more than $1 million in WSOP winnings. Gagliano also has more than $2 million in live poker winnings in his career.

Fresh off a third-place finish for $160,000 in the Poker Masters, John Riordan scored runner-up for $45,356. 

Event 17: $777 Lucky 7s

Mike “BrockLesnar” Holtz has been one of the hottest players on the WSOP.com platform over the last few years. He scored the Player of the Year title in 2021 on the site and now adds a bracelet to his poker resumé.

The event saw 347 entries for a $394,800 prize pool. And like his username’s namesake, Holtz body slammed the competition for $76,157 and now has more than $500,000 in WSOP winnings.

Jordyn Miller, of California,  finished runner-up for $55,114, but would find the winner’s circle himself just two events later. Massachusetts’ Mark Dube placed third for $40,112.

Event 16:  $500 NLHE Deepstack

Connor “beefstew93” Stuewe grabbed his first gold bracelet and a beefy payout of $45,679 in this event. Originally from Massachusetts, the Las Vegas-based player now has six WSOP cashes and this marks the biggest in his tournament career.

The event produced a field of 555 entries for a $249,750 prize pool. Kevin Garosshen scored second place for $33,117 with Quintin Trammell finishing third for $24,001.

Event 15: $365 No Limit Hold’em Turbo Deepstack

Tanner Bibat continued his huge run through the series by capturing his second bracelet in this event. The player originally from Dunwoody, Georgia, scored the top spot again for $42,053 and is proving to be quite an online poker phenomenon.

A pair of New Jersey players also fared well. Uke Dauti took runner-up for $30,488 and Anna Antimony grabbed third for $22,096. The tournament brought in 939 entries for a $229,928 prize pool.

Earlier in the series, Bibat took first in the $400 Pot Limit Omaha for $29,460. He also won a WSOP Circuit ring on WSOP.com in 2019. The last week brought him two bracelets, quite an impressive run.

“I do play a lot online and it just happens to be my week,” he told WSOP commentator Norman Chad after his latest win.
