Hacialioglu wins WSOP $1,000 Turbo 6-Handed
 

The latest online WSOP Event is in the books after just seven hours of play. Adnan "Bolazar" Hacialioglu bested a field of 1,910 to take home his first WSOP Bracelet, along with nearly $260,000 in prize money, as well as a WSOP Europe package.

At the start of the final table, Niko "niNohR" Koop held the chip lead with over 11 million chips, while eventual winner Hacialioglu started as the second shortest stack, with just over 2.6 million.

Tuen "FudGuy" Bui would be next to bust out when he got his final chips in with Ace-Queen, but he ran straight into the pocket aces of Jargo Alavali. The board brought no help for Bui, who was the first casualty of the final table.

Following the elimination of Soo Jo Kim in seventh place, it was time for Hacialioglu to start to make his comeback, as he would go on to get every elimination from there. First, he would bust "Andriy "smbcall911" Lyubovetskiy in sixth place in a blind vs. blind confrontation.

Next, Hacialioglu would have to get quite lucky, as he ran into the pocket aces of Jargo "bungakat" Alavali holding just Queen-Ten. However, Hacialioglu would flop top pair and a straight draw, and hit that straight on the river.

Niko "niNohR" Koop was next to be on the end of Hacialioglu's ax. He would have to come from behind again in this one, as he came back against Koop, after spiking a king on the turn.

Not long after that, Tim "TMay420" West, who was the short stack throughout the whole final table, finally fell off the ladder, as he bowed out in third. On his final hand, West was flipping against Hacialioglu. The board came down, giving Hacialioglu a straight.

Hacialioglu brought a big lead into heads up play with over 36 million to the 12 million of Robin "Kabuzzi" Berggren. They would only play a few hands before a classic coin flip, with Hacialioglu's Ace-Queen besting the pocket sevens of Berggren.

Congratulations again to Adnan Hacialioglu for his incredible showing. Again, he will take home $259,842, the WSOP bracelet, and the WSOP Europe package.
