2022 WSOP Online halfway highlights; N8’s Pete Chen, Stefan Schillhabel, & David Yan win bracelets; Markus Prinz, Scott Ball Jr bank seven digits

The World Series of Poker Online has been heating up Natural8 – GGNet since August 14 with the masses targeting the 33 gold bracelets on offer. A few nights ago, the series breached the halfway mark. Among the first half winners were N8 players Stefan Schillhabel, David Yan, and Team Hot Ambassador Pete Chen. Each one walked away with a bracelet and a Team Bling sponsorship. Other minted players were Jonas Lauck for his career second gold bracelet and Markus Prinz who cracked the Millionaire Maker for a payout well over US$ 1.1 Million. Undoubtedly the most envied player was USA’s Scott Ball but not for the two bracelets he won at the 2021 WSOP. Ball didn’t even have to secure an online gold to make headlines. Instead, he drew the biggest treasure at the Mystery Bounty amounting to US$ 1 Million. We’ve all of got those highlights below.

Scott Ball “ItsRumcake” draws the Million Dollar Mystery Bounty reward

2wsopscott2

The Million Dollar Mystery Bounty was incredibly popular, amassing 51,003 entries for a jaw dropping US$ 10,200,600 prize pool. This was the largest pot and field of the series to date. Drawing everyone in was of course the low buy in of US$ 210 which could be turned into a lucky one million dollars. A 5,797 strong field advanced to the final day with 4,800 players guaranteed a cut of the pot. Within seconds, mystery bounty rewards were being claimed, and to everyone’s surprise, that included the US$ 1 Million Top Bounty. The coveted prize was drawn by well known American pro / two time bracelet winner Scott Ball “ItsRumcake” after he eliminated Brazilian player “2345meia78” in 5,772nd place. Ball later fell in 713th place and walked away as the event’s biggest earner with a total payout of US$ 1,001,694.
