The 2020 World Series of Poker Online hosted the second Omaha event of the series on Wednesday with Event #37: $1,050 Bounty Pot-Limit Omaha. A total of 971-entrants would create a prize pool of $971,000, and it would be Andy Lee topping the field to collect the $161,886 first-place prize and the coveted WSOP bracelet.

With a progressive bounty format on the tournament, but no prize pool guarantee, players were allowed three entrants each. After finishing in third-place in the $5,000 PLO Championship two days earlier, Belarmino “Iseey0urcard” De Souza led the in-the-money finishers that included Alex Foxen, Brandon Adams, Cliff Josephy, George Wolff, and Mike Watson.

Alex “rubbherducky” Difelice was also at the PLO Championship final table, but he followed his ninth-place finish with another nine-place showing when he was eliminated by Craig Timmis. Timmis continued his heater as he eliminated Shaul “yoffitoffi” Meir in eighth, Nikolaus “schnitzolauf” Eigners in seventh, and Attila “zzzumbaaa” Kuna in sixth to move into the chip lead. Lee would then begin his move up the leaderboard as Timmis began trending in the wrong direction. Lee eliminated Paul Teoh in fifth place after he rivered a straight, and then sent Bradley “DrStrange7” Ruben out in fourth connecting with a set against two pair.

Down to three players, Timmis would be eliminated by Lee who made two pair to fade Timmis’ straight draw. Lee held a five-to-one chip lead entering heads-up play with Janne “Fructu” Peltoniemi, and when the latter was down to roughly ten big blinds, the final hand played out. Peltoniemi was all in with a pair and some danglers while Lee held a superior pair and two broadway cards. Lee improved on the flop, and when Peltoniemi could find his two outer, he was eliminated in second place and Lee was crowned the Event #37 champion.
