Blaze 'skillz225' Gaspari takes home a WSOP victory

10 July 2023

Yesterday's action on WSOP.com saw Blaze "skillz225" Gaspari defeat Matthew "Sucra71" Gillingham in the final two to become the most recent online bracelet winner for $224,816.

Gaspari has found success under the WSOP umbrella before, picking up two online Circuit rings in 2022. He has 24 WSOP cashes, all coming from the virtual felt.

Event #15: $1,000 NLH Championship saw 883 players rebuy 482 times, which resulted in a 1,365-entry field that awarded its $1,228,500 prize pool to the top 180 finishers.

$50,000 High Roller winner Leon "ShepelSimp" Sturm made the final table and bowed out in eighth-place for $21,622. 2023 PCA Main Event fifth-place finisher Alexandre "raking-even" Raymond also put in a deep run and came third for just shy of six-figures.

Raymond made one of the folds of the year in The Bahamas after he quickly and correctly laid down a full house on the final table.
