On Saturday night, the 2020 WSOP Online 2020 Event #4: $500 No-Limit Hold'em Super Turbo attracted 828 runners who rebought 351 times to create a 1,179-entry field. That generated a $530,550 prize pool, and after less than six hours of play it was Matt “Bodeyster” Bode walking away with the $97,091 top prize and the latest gold bracelet.
Amazingly, Bode had called his shot back on June 29 via Twitter.
“Here goes to becoming a secret online crusher,” he wrote. “Using pios solvers programs poker coaching sites backers and discord to ship a bracelet. No retweets when this ages well.”
He willed it into existence, and accomplished the feat from the comfort of his dad’s basement.
In this candid interview Bode calls out the overhyped old school of poker and reveals the new school with solvers and charts are just better. He details his experience of playing the Final table on WSOP.com by saying, "None of those guys were playing ninja poker. They were folding out for ICM pressure when there was a bracelet on the line. I was looking around like Oh my Gosh, nobody wants to play poker.“ For more bold and fascinating quotes you have to check out this interview!
