Ravid Garbi has won the 2020 World Series of Poker Online $5,000 no-limit hold’em six-max championship event. He outlasted a field of 672 total entries and overcame a tough final table to win his first WSOP gold bracelet and the top prize of $531,513. This was by far the largest recorded tournament score of Garbi’s career, having roughly $30,000 in prior live scores to his name.

The tournament was six handed throughout, but combined onto a nine-handed final table after the elimination of Francisco Benitez in 10th place ($33,195). Belarusian high roller superstar Mikita Badziakouski entered the final table as the chip leader, with Norway’s Preben Stokkan sitting in second chip position. Garbi was actually the shortest stack when nine-handed play got underway, but he managed to chip up and move into the middle of the pack before the first elimination of the day took place. Alan Schein, who had finished fourth in the $8,000 HKD buy-in bracelet event just a day earlier, got all-in with pocket nines and lost out to the JDiamond Suit8Club Suit of Urmo Velvelt. Schein took home $45,293 for his ninth-place finish.

Mikita BadziakouskiRecent $1,050 pot-limit Omaha bounty bracelet winner Hun Wei Lee was the next to fall. he got the last of his short stack in with KSpade Suit10Club Suit and was called by the ADiamond SuitJClub Suit of Ludovic Geilich. The Scottish pro made a pair of aces on the river to send Lee to the rail in eighth place ($61,791).

Despite entering the final nine with the lead, Mikita Badziakouski found himself as the shortest stack early in seven-handed action. He got his last few chips in with AClub SuitQDiamond Suit, but big blind Urmo Velvelt’s 9Diamond Suit4Heart Suit was able to outrun his superior hand by making a pair of fours on the river. Badziakouski was awarded $84,299 for his latest deep run in a huge event.

Shyngis Satubayev shoved from under the gun with the JSpade Suit10Diamond Suit and was called by Garbi, who had been dealt the QSpade SuitQClub Suit in the big blind. The queens held and Satubayev was knocked out in sixth place ($115,006). Ludovic Geilich followed shortly after when his ADiamond Suit8Diamond Suit failed to beat out the QHeart Suit10Spade Suit of Velvelt, who paired his ten on the turn and held from there. Geilich took home $156,898 as the fifth-place finisher.

Velvelt was the next to be eliminated. He got all-in on a 7Club Suit4Diamond Suit2Heart Suit flop with 10Heart Suit10Diamond Suit for an overpaid. He was up against the 4Spade Suit2Spade Suit of garbi for a flopped two pair. The 9Diamond Suit turn and QHeart Suit river were of no help to Velvelt and he was knocked out in fourth place ($214,051).

Chris MoormanPreben Stokkan’s run in this event came to an end when he ran ASpade SuitDiamond Suit into the pocket aces of Garbi. The pocket pair held up and Stokkan settled for $292,021 as the third-place finisher. With that, garbi took more than a 2:1 chip lead into heads-uo play with WSOP bracelet winner and World Poker Tour main event champion Chris Moorman.

By the time the final hand was dealt, Garbi had extended his advantage to more than a 3.5:1 lead. All of the chips got into the middle in the end with Moorman holding QSpade Suit10Club Suit up against the KHeart Suit8Club Suit of Garbi. The AHeart Suit5Diamond Suit2Diamond Suit6Club SuitAClub Suit runout kept garbi’s king-high in the lead to earn him the pot and the title.
