Hagerty wins WSOP Online $500 NLH Turbo

23 July 2021

On Friday night, the 2021 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Event #23: $500 NLH Turbo attracted 457 players who rebought 237 times. The 694-entry field created a prize pool of $312,300, and after just over six hours of play, it was New Jersey's Ryan "hagzzz021" Hagerty coming out on top to capture the $67,207 top prize and his first WSOP gold bracelet.

The victory came less than a day after he finished fifth in Event #22: $600 NLH Knockout for $9,958, and a month after he won the WSOP Circuit Super Series Event #7: $75,000 GTD NLH 6-Max for $22,925 and his first gold ring.

Hagerty, who had more than $340K in live tournament earnings according to The Hendon Mob, nearly captured the 2020 WSOP Domestic Main Event bracelet back in December but ultimately fell short in fourth place for $387,130. A well-respected online grinder, Hagerty didn't have to wait long to make a run at another bracelet, and this time he closed it out.

Among the notables to finish in the top 90 and cash were Arkadiy "Crocofantos" Tsinis (11th - $3,435), Mike "Mkspresident" Shin (18th - $2,217), Matt "RubberFist" Stout (24th - $1,843), Daniel "DNegs" Negreanu (26th - $1,843), Brock "ohmyguan" Wilson (44th - $1,343), Phil "Lumestackin" Hellmuth (52nd - $1,156), Bernard "Dogger9" Lee (61st - $1,062), Ryan "bitc0in" Riess (73rd - $906), and Chris "Robotbob47" Moorman (83rd - $874).

Given the tournament's turbo nature, the final table didn't take long to play out. Raymond "Tastemybeans" Fillipone was the first to fall losing a race with king-jack against pocket tens, and Kyle "JackintheB0x" Miholich followed him out the door after running two black jacks into the pocket queens of Hagerty.

"Lukaslo0413" then shoved with ace-queen only to run smack dab into the aces of Hagerty, and then Anthony "boom81boom" Chin woke up with a pair of aces of his own to eliminate "sub_zer0", who got it in bad with pocket jacks.

Despite winning that hand, Chin was next to go when his ace-three failed to get there against the pocket eights of Hagerty, and then two-time bracelet winner Calvin "projector52" Anderson bowed out in fourth place after his queen-seven suited went down in flames to the ace-ten of Russell "njpincher" Crane.

Crane then lost two big pots to Richard "Na_Cho_Cheez" Liotta to bow out in third. In what would be his last hand, Crane got it in with pocket eights and lost to ace-eight when a bullet spiked on the river.

The heads-up match between Liotta and Hagerty was a back-and-forth affair with both players seemingly on the verge of capturing the bracelet only to have the other storm back. Things got shallow and all-in shoves became the standard play until Hagerty got paired his queen holding queen-five to outdraw the ace-jack of Liotta.

2 Richard "Na_Cho_Cheez" Liotta $41,630
