The 2020 World Series of Poker Online $1,500 pot-limit Omaha event attracted a total of 972 entries to build a $1,385,1000 prize pool. Enrico Camosci, who won the $2,100 buy-in no-limit hold’em bounty event earlier this series, made it all the way down to heads-up play with a chance to become the second player to win two bracelets during this series. It was ultimately Thi Truong who emerged victorious with the title, though, earning $215,938 and the coveted gold bracelet for the win.

Enrico CamosciCamosci earned $165,414 as the runner-up finisher. The Italian has now cashed for $517,433 accros nine in-the-money finishes this series, including the $327,319 he earned for taking down the bounty event in early August.

The final table of this event began with Truong sitting in the chip lead, with recent WSOPO $800 pot-limit Omaha double stack winner Frank Crivello in second chip position. Germany’s Johannes Toebbe was the shortest stack and ended up being the first to hit the virtual rail. He got all-in with bottom pair and plenty of live cards and backdoor outs on a JSpade Suit7Club Suit4Diamond Suit flop holding KClub SuitQClub Suit10Spade Suit4Spade Suit. He was up against the ASpade SuitKSpade SuitJHeart Suit9Club Suit of Truong. Both players made two pair on the KHeart Suit turn, but Toebbe’s kings and fours were second best. The 6Diamond Suit was of no help and Toevve was eliminated in ninth place ($17,533).

High roller regular Sean Winter was the next to fall. The 2014 Card Player Poker Tour bestbet Jacksonville main event champion got the last of his stack in with pocket kings up against the pocket aces of Dante Goya. Winter picked up some outs to a straight on the flop with his side cards, but the turn and river kept Goya ahead. Winter earned $24,160 for his eighth-place finish in this event.

Frank Crivello’s run in this event was also ended with pocket kings. Crivello got all-in on a 8Spade Suit5Spade Suit4Heart Suit flop agter having committed the majority of his stack preflop with the KHeart SuitKClub SuitQClub Suit3Heart Suit. He recieved a call from Truong, who had flopped a set of fours with the 6Diamond Suit6Club Suit4Spade Suit4Club Suit. The JHeart Suit turn gave Crivello a flush draw, which the 8Heart Suit on the river completed. That card also paired the board, though, giving Truong a winning full house and the pot. Crivello cashed for $33,293 as the seventh-place finisher.

WSOP bracelet winner Kyle Bowker got his last chips in preflop with AHeart SuitQSpade Suit10Heart Suit4Spade Suit. The American ran into the ASpade SuitADiamond SuitJClub Suit5Heart Suit of Brazlian poker pro Joao Simao. The aces held and Bowker bowed out in sixth place ($45,877). Laurynas Levinskas found a double-suited pair of tens with connected cards and went with it. He got action from Camosci, who had been dealt double-suited pocket kings. The larger pair remained the best hand by the river and Levinskas was sent packing in fifth place ($63,218).

Joao SimaoSimao fell to the bottom of the chip counts during four-handed play. He eventually went with the AClub SuitQClub Suit6Diamond Suit5Heart Suit, three-betting the button open of Truong from the small blind and then calling all-in for slightly more. Truong held the KDiamond SuitJSpade Suit10Heart Suit7Spade Suit. The board ran out 8Heart Suit7Diamond Suit2Heart Suit6Spade Suit3Heart Suit and Truong’s pair of sevens was enough to send Simao home with $87,113 as the fourth-place finisher.

Dante Goya committed his final chips with QSpade SuitQHeart Suit9Spade Suit9Diamond Suit and found himself up against the KHeart SuitJSpade SuitJHeart Suit3Spade Suit of Truong. The AHeart SuitKClub Suit10Heart Suit flop gave Truong the best pair and a royal flush draw. The QDiamond Suit on the turn improved Goya to a set, but also completed Truong’s straight. The 5Club Suit on the river locked up the pot for Truong and Goya was eliminated in third place ($120,041).

With that Truong took just shy of a 2:1 chip lead into heads-up play with Camosci. The final showdown only lasted a matter of minutes. The two got all-in on a 10Diamond Suit4Club Suit2Heart Suit8Club Suit board. Camosci held the 9Heart Suit6Diamond Suit5Club Suit3Spade Suit for a massive straight draw, with and ace, three, five, six or seven able to improve him to a straight.
