Feng wins the Big 50 bracelet at WSOP

24 August 2020

Event #71: BIG 50, $1M GTD wasn't just big - it was the biggest World Series of Poker (WSOP) field ever and Huahuan "F7588" Feng managed to navigate through the massive field of 44,576 total entries to win the bracelet, a package to WSOP Europe, and $211,282. The huge field put the prize pool on this $50 event at more than $2 million.

The win marks the seventh cash for Feng during the 2020 WSOP Online at GGPoker, but its the first time in the series he has gotten even close to a final table. Prior to this year, Feng had no WSOP cashes on his resume, but he managed to rack up more than $300,000 in wins in various Asian events since 2017.

The $211,282 score is his biggest cash yet, eclipsing his previous best of $176,985 (KRW 198,060,000) in KRW 11,300,000 + 700,000 No Limit Hold'em - High Roller (Event #8) at Jeju Red Dragon 2018, Jeju.

With the biggest field ever for a WSOP event, a total of 4,140 players returned for Day 2 action. Jefferey "ReadyGambo" Jenkins led the way into Day 2 with more than 300k, and Day 2 also saw a number of high profile players take their seat including GGPoker ambassadors Daniel Negreanu, Pete Chen and Michael Soyza, as well as players like Jack Salter, Chris Moorman, Patrick "Egption" Tardif, Kevin Martin, Andre "bluffpatrol_dre" Ebert, Dan Almeida, Johan "YoHViraL" Guilbert, and Andrii "BabyShark19" Kozlenko.

On a very busy Sunday, there was a delay in seating players to start the day off. When play did resume about 60 minutes late, they played a few hands then paused again for a short time, but were back in action fairly quickly and they played through to the end without interruption.

It only took about an hour to play down to the money once they got going again, and action went on a tear once they were in the money. Within about three hours they were down about 300 left and under 100 a couple hours later. Along the way, players like Negreanu ($611), Salter ($230), Tardif ($308), and Martin ($216) cashed out while Moorman, and Almeida were left empty handed.

It was around an hour till they got to four tables left, and they didn't slow down. They were down to the final two tables within another hour, losing the start of day leader Jenkins in 28th for $4,850, as well as Daniel "CASTILIAN" Tafur ($4,850) and Eduardo "m0neyprinter" Fay ($6,600). They played down to the final table bubble pretty quickly, but then play stalled with 10 left.

It took nearly half an hour to set up the final table. Canadian "Carffan" was the final table bubble, running ace-king into kings. Action moved pretty quickly on the final table, with the first two eliminations happening within just a few minutes.

They played seven handed for almost an hour before Xiong "wwwyoujizz" Huang ended their day in 7th place ($29,906) with second pair against top pair followed by Di "LuXDi" Lu in 6th. Play slowed a bit as they went five handed for about 15 minutes before the floodgates opened, and Max "TheChosen1" Veyga, Daniel "Vanessa23" Montagnolli, and Ronald "CorVanHout" Haverkamp busted in short order.

The heads-up match between Xue qiao "whattfboys" Zhao and Feng was a short one. Just a couple hands in, Zhao shoved over a raise and got called. It was ace-six against king-six, and the ace-high held for Feng to take the win while Zhao had to settle for the runner-up prize of $159,705.
