Conan Defeats Ponakovs & Mateos to Win WSOP Online $10K Heads-Up


Артур Конан одержал победу в $10 000 Heads Up ChampionshipHe had to wait two weeks, but in the end, Arthur Conan took down the WSOP Online Event #15: $10 000 Heads Up Championship for $466 167 by defeating Aleksejs Ponakovs in the final. With 161 entries on Day 1, a prize pool of $1 561 700 was created with the lion-share being awarded today.

Conan had a 4th place finish in Event #14: THE BIG 500 and the 9th place in Event #13: PLO Championship but he finally got that win here in one of the most anticipated events of the 2021 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events schedule at GGPoker. This win takes him to over $2 million in tournament wins on just GGPoker itself.

Conan had to face Mateos in the semi-final and was the first to secure his spot in the final when they both flopped a flush. But with the ace-queen in his hand, Conan held the nuts to bust the Spaniard and prevent him from possibly winning his fourth WSOP bracelet.

Ponakovs needed a bit more time to deal with Soltys. Around twenty minutes after Mateos had hit the rail, Ponakovs had limp-called the raise of Soltys to flop a straight. Soltys had hit top pair and check-shoved for 24 big blinds and was left drawing dead on the turn to bust in third place.

While the semi-finals lasted just under an hour, the final was a different story as that took almost two hours with the evenly matched opponents.

Even though Ponakovs took an early lead, Conan quickly took it over. They got back to even stacks for a while but in the end, Conan three-bet jammed with jack-nine suited. Ponakovs had called for 23 big blinds with pocket fives. Conan found a nine to connect with on the flop to secure the maiden bracelet and first-place prize.

Ponakovs won $279,700 for his runner-up spot while Adrian Mateos and Daniel Soltys both cashed for $155,389.
