Madanzhiev wins the WSOP Online Main Event

8 September 2020

With 12 players left in the World Series of Poker $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event on GGPoker, Stoyan Madanzhiev got involved in what seemed to be a relatively standard lucky all-in hand, hitting a three on the turn with ace-three against the ace-nine of a short-stacked Samuel Vousden. Then, two players showed they'd folded a three, meaning Madanzhiev had hit a one-outer.

While it helped him eliminate a major threat in one of the most accomplished and skilled players in the final day, it wasn't really among the most impactful hands Madanzhiev played.

It just summed up how his day went as he cruised to a fairly mundane victory, the last player standing in a field of 5,802, of which 38 made the final day. The Bulgarian, whose WSOP earnings amounted to about $5,500 coming in, all from GGPoker, won a staggering $3,904,686, the largest prize ever awarded in online poker.
