The 2020 GGPoker World Series of Poker Winter Online Circuit has come to an end with the $1,700 Main Event playing down to a winner. It took just under three hours to determine a champion and Macau-based high-stakes cash game player Paulius Plausinaitis went wire-to-wire, defeating "turkey1" in heads-up to claim his maiden WSOP Circuit ring and the top prize worth $1,236,361.
The flagship tournament of the entire schedule drew a total of 6,395 entries including 974 re-entries to surpass the $10 million guarantee, and the top 700 finishers earned a portion of the $10,327,925 prize pool.
Plausinaitis walked away with the only seven-figure payday, which "turkey1" missed by not much after earning a payday of $923,165. It was also the biggest MTT top prize for any poker player in the history of his home country Lithuania thus far. WSOP bracelet winner and former WSOP Main Event finalist Joseph Cheong finished third for $692,276.
Further notables on the nine-handed final table included Finnish poker pro Joni Jouhkimainen, Artem "Amsterq" Prostak, and WSOP bracelet winner Alexandru Papazian.
