Russian poker player Dmitry Yurasov claimed his first gold bracelet in the Six-Max No-Limit Hold ’em event of the 2017 World Series of Poker. Now four years later, this player has again earned the world’s attention by claiming his second piece of hardware.
This player has taken his prize at the Omaha bounty event in the 2021 WSOP Online Series. This event required Yurasov to clear the field of 895 other entries in order to claim the title as well as his total winnings of $97,711.
This player has now amassed a total of $3,760,934 in total career earnings from tournaments. Though this win earned Yurasov his second bracelet and a considerable amount of money, this prize still does not beat the $775,923 he won with his first bracelet title back in 2017.
The final day found intense competition remaining for Yurasov with a two-time gold bracelet winner and the winner of the Aussie Millions Main Event in play and the ventral winner holding fourth-place. Daniel Perkusic held the chip lead out of the ten remaining players at this point.
Once the final table of seven was set, Yurasov was still holding fourth place. Anson Tsang, a two-time bracelet winner, would be the first to go when David Mzareulov’s pair and high kickers defeated Tsang’s flopped pair and wrap. Tsang finished in seventh place for $18,565.
Fausto Tantillo would fall next when his pocket aces were defeated on the river. Tantillo would take home $19,063 for his sixth-place finish. Barer would get the next two knockouts both in the same hand with a winning hand of a king-high straight. Mzareulov was eliminated in fifth place with $34,084, and Perkusic took home $36,731 for a fourth-place finish.
Yurasov would get the next knockout. Samuel Saariaho would run his set of eights and turned flush draw up against Yurasov’s flopped jack high-straight. Then, when Saariaho failed to find help on the river, he was eliminated in third place with $33,630.
When heads-up play started, Barer held a chip lead of about 2:1 over Yurasov. Yurasov would defeat Barer when he bet 750,000 while holding an A♧9♧6♥3♦. Barer called while holding a J♠7♠5♧2♧. The flop came down with a 10♦8♦7♥. After this, Barer would bet 1,560,000 while holding a pair and a straight gunshot draw. Yurasov raised the bet with a flopped ten-high straight hand. Berger went all-in with his remaining 491,180 chips.
Unfortunately for Barer, the river was of no help, and he hit the virtual rail. This left Yurasov the victor and sent Barer home as runner-up with $69,347 to show for it.
