On Friday night, the 2020 WSOP Online Event #10: $600 No-Limit Hold’em MonsterStack drew 1,505 runners who rebought 569 times. The 2074-entry field resulted in the first million-dollar prize pool of the series ($1 119 960), and after 12 hours of play, it was Ryan “Im.Sorry” Torgerson who came out on top win a $172 361 top prize and his first gold bracelet.
If his nickname rings a bell, it’s no surprise. Last night, Torgerson finished runner-up in Event #9: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max. Torgerson came back for redemption and earned the victory after he navigated his way through one of the largest fields in this series.
A fairly new player to the series, his first official cash came from the WSOP.com Season Finale where he finished 30th just one month ago. Now, with two massive runs in a row and a WSOP bracelet richer, Torgerson has become one to watch.
Torgerson took a 2:1 chip lead into heads-up play and he chipped away at Ienn until the latter’s remaining chips went into the middle holding ace-seven. Unfortunately for Ienn, he was dominated as Torgerson held ace-eight and Ienn took his exit in second place for $106 508.
