First WSOP gold bracelet win for Loeser

3 July 2021

On Friday, the second gold bracelet of the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Series was awarded. Event #2: $600 NLH Monster Stack drew 727 runners who rebought 311 times, which meant the 1,038-entry field resulted in a $560,520 prize pool, and after 11 hours of play, it was Manig "Ohio77" Loeser who came out on top win a $104,313 top prize and his first gold bracelet.

A top poker pro, Loeser has over $11 million in live tournament earnings according to The Hendon Mob. He had come close to winning a WSOP gold bracelet on several occasions having finished second twice and third three times. He can now remove his name from the list of "Best Without a Bracelet" thanks to his Online Monster Stack victory.

The gold bracelet is the cherry on top of an already-stellar career that includes a win on the Triton Super High Roller Series for over $2 million and an EPT Monte Carlo victory for $678,393. He has more than a dozen other six-figure scores on his poker résumé, including four others from the WSOP.

After three-time WSOP bracelet winner Nick "CashUsKlay" Schulman bubbled the tournament in 168th place, players started falling at a rapid pace.

Among the notables to cash were WSOP bracelet winner Ryan "joeyisamush" Depaulo (158th - $841), six-time bracelet winner Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu (92nd - $861.97), Michael "Whats__next" Gagliano (75th - $1,177), Upeshka "gomezhamburg" De Silva (37th - $2,130), Andrew "WATCHGUY42" Lichtenberger (28th - $2,466), Brad "mrmonkeybear" Owen (17th - $3,699), and Kathy "Luckygal" Liebert (12th - $5,885).

Loeser actually eliminated Liebert after he four-bet jammed with pocket sevens and she called with ace-king suited. It was a big flip and Loeser's pocket pair held strong to end Liebert's quest for a second bracelet.

At the final table, Loeser built a big stack and used to apply pressure to his opponents, though he only notched two knockouts. Fortunately, they were the ones that counted as his pocket sixes held against ace-six suited to eliminate "WompDatTHomp" in third place and then in the final hand had his queens hold up against sixes to dispatch Mark "Nostradonkus" Liedtke in second place.

1 Manig "Ohio77" Loeser $104,313
