Allen Chang Grabs Second Bracelet with WSOP Online Event #16 Win

Last June, New Yorker Allen Chang emerged from relative obscurity to win Event #5 of the 2020 World Series of Poker Online for his first career bracelet and $161,286. On Friday night, Chang earned a second bracelet after winning Event #16 ($600 Pot Limit Omaha 8 or Better Six Handed) in dominating fashion.

Chang eliminated four of his five opponents at the final table to win $61,394 and needed just an hour to do it. Andrew Lichtenberger came to the final table with the shortest stack and was able to stick around just 10 minutes. Lichtenberger was the first to act and he moved all in for 238,391 before Change re-raised to 535,173 forcing the rest of the table to fold. Chang showed As7d7c2s while Lichtenberger needed some help with AdJc6h5d. The board ran out KsTh9sKc3s and Lichtenberger made no high or low hand and was eliminated in sixth place.

Chang picked up another elimination just five minutes later. Chris Leslie-Hynan opened to 280,000 and Chang re-raised to 480,000 from the big blind. Leslie-Hynan called off his last 133,152 and tabled AdTd4h3d while Chang showed AcQcTc4c. The KhTs7h flop gave both players second pair, but Chang made Broadway on the Jh turn. Leslie-Hynan found no help on the 9c river and became the fifth place finisher.

Another 18 minutes before the table went from four-handed to three, and it wasn’t Chang in charge of the next bustout. ‘PiggyBear‘ opened to 350,000 from UTG and Edwin Roman re-raised to 1,150,000 from the small blind. ‘PiggyBear’ called all for 1,055,128 and then turned over Ac9c9s7h while Roman had AhAs9h6s. The Tc5s3h flop didn’t change anything. The 7d turn gave Roman a qualifying low hand to go with his pair of aces. The river was the 8c to give Roman the high and the low and end the night for PiggyBear’ in fourth place.

Chang got back on the bustout wagon 20 minutes later. Ryan Stoker raised to 350,000 from the button, leaving himself just 321,036 behind, and Chang answered by raising to 1,100,000 from the big blind. Stoker called and flipped over AdTh9d3c. Chang tabled AcKhQs9h and then watched as the Jc5c2h[qf]9s runout gave him two pair to send Stoker out in third.

Chang started heads up play with almost 79% of the total chips in play. It took him just five minutes more to collect the rest of them. Roman opened to 360,000 and Chang called. The flop came Jd8s5d and Chang fired out 720,000 and Roman called all in. Chang showed 9c5s4h3s for bottom pair with a low draw. Roman had AdQhJs6h for top pair and a low draw. The Qs turn gave Chang a flush draw and the Ks river completed it to eliminate Roman in second place and give Change his second WSOP Online title in as many years.
