On Saturday night, the 2020 WSOP Online Event #4: $500 No-Limit Hold’em Super Turbo attracted 828 runners who rebought 351 times to create a 1,179-entry field. That generated a $530,550 prize pool, and after less than six hours of play, it was Matt “Bodeyster” Bode walking away with the $97,091 top prize and the latest gold bracelet.
According to his Twitter profile, @Matt_Bode79, Bode is a Behavior Therapist and U23 WFDF Gold Medalist, as well as an online MTT grinder.Matt won the tournament without leaving his father’s basement (he even tweeted the attached photo to prove it).
With five players remaining the stacks were extremely shallow with the big stack having just 10 big blinds. With six-minute levels, it was only a matter of time before players hit the rail including MacPhee, who got unlucky holding ace-queen against Bode’s ace-ten when a ten flopped.
Bode would go on to dispatch Frank “spaghettiii” Marasco in fourth place, and after Caitlin “KTUUUH” Dillon exited in third, the title came down to Bode and Brian “XcrazylegsX” Frasca. The latter began with a chip lead but with the blinds so big the swings were huge. Eventually, Bode claimed the lead and closed things out when his queen-seven got lucky against Frasca’s ace-queen.
