Joseph Mitchell Claims Victory at 2017 WSOP $333 Online Event

Joseph Mitchell Claims Victory at 2017 WSOP $333 Online EventIn addition to being one of just three online tournaments featured at the 2017 World Series of Poker, Event #8: $333 WSOP.com Online Little Grind was also the lowest buy-in event being featured at this year’s Series in Las Vegas. The re-entry tournament subsequently attracted a field of 2,509 players to create a prize pool of $752,700, with Joseph “ul_gg” Mitchell eventually emerging victorious at the end of the one day event to claim a WSOP gold bracelet, as well as a top prize of $122,314.
The action kicked-off at 3:33 pm on Saturday, and by around 9:00 pm the bubble burst, thus ensuring that the remaining 333 finishers would all receive a return on their buy-ins. At 12:45 am, the nine-handed final table was then set, with Joseph Mitchell sitting in 6th place overall, but the Oregon native was soon able to add to his stack after being dealt K-Q and making a straight on a 10-9-J flop against Hao “sandongcpa” Sun holding pocket kings.
Mitchell (9-9) followed up by eliminating Michael “TonyPerkis1” Jacoby (A-7) in 6th, before being dealt pocket aces and doing likewise to Bobby “bcmclawh” McLawhorn (10-10) in 5th after the dealer laid out an 8-5-4-Q-J board. Having then taken out a short-stacked Michael “ooookillthem” Addamo in 3rd, the heads-up phase of the competition got underway between Joseph “ul_gg” Mitchell and Mark “PLODonkey17” Scacewater, with a coveted WSOP bracelet awaiting the ultimate winner.
Mitchell’s good fortune then continued after Scacewater missed the early exchange due to technical difficulties, and by the time he returned to the action he soon got his remaining chips all-in preflop holding A-7 to his opponent’s Q-J. The 4-3-2-Q-6 board which ensued quickly put an end to Scacewater’s challenge, though, and so he had to settle for a runner-up finish worth $73,539, while Joseph “ul_gg” Mitchell was crowned the champion.
Final Table Results:
1: Joseph “ul_gg” Mitchell $122,314
2: Mark “PLODonkey17” Scacewater $73,539
3: Michael “ooookillthem” Addamo $54,043.86
4: Hao “sandongcpa” Sun $39,592
5: Bobby “bcmclawh” McLawhorn $29,205
6: Michael “TonyPerkis1” Jacoby $21,828
7: Kevin “SEQUENCE” Sheetz $16,559
8: Casey “rhin0” Long $12,645
9: William “nomoneyloser” Pan $9,710
