On the wee hours of Sunday, July 2, Thomas ‘FLOATZ' Cannuli bagged Event #61, the inaugural $3,333 Big Grind Online, also known as the Online High Roller No-Limit Hold'em tournament, a one-day unlimited re-entry event which was scheduled last Saturday, July 1, 2017 at 3:33pm.

The 25-year-old from New Jersey defeated a field of 424 players (320 unique with 104 rebuys), for which he claimed his first ever WSOP gold bracelet along with a top cash prize of $322,815.

Cannuli's victory also represents his second highest score so far, with his biggest win coming from the 2015 WSOP after making it to the $10k Main Event final table and finished in 6th place for a massive payout of $1,426,283. That time after he was eliminated, he said, "It's not easy. It comes from playing for seven years, seeing the guys who lose $40k pots in a cash game and say nothing about it. That showed me a respect for the game. You see the other side where people are complaining every time they lose a hand. I just want to set an example and take a stand for the guys who have that etiquette, and lose like gentlemen, or women for that matter."

Featuring a prize pool of $1,335,600, the $3,333 Big Grind Online attracted several known poker pros, among them: John Racener (48th place, $6,277), Maria Ho (42nd, $6,812), Chris Moorman (35th, $7,613), Joe McKeehen (27th, $8,815), Chris Klodnicki (21st, $8,815), and Kevin Eyster (14th, $12,688).

Final table results:

1 Thomas "FLOATZ" Cannuli, United States, $322,815
2 Tara "BeatrixKiddo" Cain, United States, $201,408
3 Adam "HLEDERERER" Owen, United Kingdom, $136,231
4 Daniel "Pepperprince" Zack, United States, $97,232
5 Darren "LegionofBoom" Rabinowitz, United States, $66,112
6 Blake "bk1048" Kelso, United States, $47,547
7 Vincent "AllinVin138" Moscati, United States, $34,859
8 Ryan "holdNfold" Jones, United States, $26,178
9 Millard "Undisputed23" Hale, United States, $20,168

The third and final online bracelet event of this summer, Event #71 $1,000 Online No-Limit Hold'em Championship, is scheduled on July 7, Friday, at 2pm PT.

well to answer your question dear bankrollmob forum member Gerimantas there is a line in the article that says the following: "... for which he claimed his first ever WSOP gold bracelet along with a top cash prize of $322,815." so we can safely assume that this wasn't virtual gold they were talking about...

Dont get me wrong. But on first glance i read cannoli
and had to reread to make sure, and of course i was wrong Smile

With the win from 2015, he could have lasted a couple more years, with no more income Smile
This was a nice addition for him and a nice win.

Congratz again Tom on this great accomplishment!

Gratz for the winner of these great WSOP event. I don´t really like rebuy tourneys, the late registration and allin gambling are not my favorite style Blink But with the right strategy and aggressive playing it was possible to win a lot, like these guy.

Many congratulations to Thomas Cannuli on winning his first bracelet. This guy is a seriously good poker player, after reaching the main event final table, and fully deserves to win one of these
