With one of the most enviable resumes in the country, poker star Bruno Volkmann tops the WSOP Spring Online Circuit. He broke the decision circle on the final day of Event 8: $800 NL Hold’em Deepstack. The Santa Catarina native has won a total of $10,655.
Volkmann started the action with 97 big blinds, the most in chips out of the 41 qualifiers. The battle for the coveted ring quickly dwindled to fewer than 15 players. Even outside of the lead, the pro was fighting for his place in the game.
When he was down to 18bbs, Volkmann opened on the button. Big name “NeverLucky96” then declared an all-in 3-bet. The Brazilian called with 9♠9♣. The Canadian’s hole card was Q♥Q♣, the hole card was 9♦Q♦4♠8♥7♥, and the Canadian won the pot.
In the same game, “laxxedAF” also defeated QQ. A♦7♦ dominating the Costa Rican couldn’t find outs on the 5♣2♠3♥7♥ board and saw “sodosodo” double his stack.
With Volkmann gone, Tullio Dutra is Brazil’s only title hope. As the FT leader, he can win up to $163,210.
