After weeks of high-stakes gambling and millions of dollars in bets, renowned Twitch streamer and poker pro BetOnDrew has finally accomplished his lifelong dream of playing in the World Series of Poker. The livestreamer took down his final table in the WSOP Main Event, earning him $5 million in the process.

Drew Adams is a professional poker player from Australia. He is known for his skill and participation in the Full Tilt Poker Main Event. He is one of the only Australian professional poker players to ever make it to the final table of the World Series of Poker main event.

Twitch streamer BetOnDrew has made a name for himself by playing the most difficult slot machines in Las Vegas casinos, and in 2015 he decided to back up his boast with some serious bankroll. He spent a total of $34,000, placing three consecutive bets of at least $7,000 each on blackjack tables in Atlantic City casinos, and then posted his hilarious videos to Twitch and YouTube.

Over the weekend in Pennsylvania, the World Series of Poker Online bracelet search came to a conclusion. WSOP.com awarded bracelets to eight players, with a total prize pool of $1.5 million.

The tournament took place from August 8 to 17, and buy-ins ranged from $400 to $3,200. A large number of players traveled to the state in order to compete for gold in the series.

Drew “MoveBlanket” Gonzalez, a famous Twitch broadcaster, was among them. Throughout the series, he had several final table visits and cashes.

The third event is a $3,200 High Roller (Aug. 17)

This event was initially planned for Aug. 10, but owing to technical problems, it was postponed. Only 86 people registered for the event, making it one of the lowest bracelet fields in the post-Moneymaker era.

Many participants went to Twitter to express their confusion at the payout system, which paid out almost half of the field. The initial buy-in was worth less than a min-cash in the tournament. 

 

The winner was “DerekHarper,” who took home $66,641. The total prize fund for the tournament was $261,440. Zach “CaptainLevi” Gruneberg, who reached his second final table of the season, was one of the noteworthy instances.
