The online events taking place during this summer at WSOP have highlighted a group of the World Poker Tour’s team of instructors. Names like Tony Dunst, Nick Binger, and Andrew Lichtenberger have made it deep into some events and collected WSOP gold bracelets.
World Poker Tour Commentator and LearnWPT instructor Tony Durst are often covering poker action from all around the globe. With those travels being halted due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, he has turned his attention to other venues.
Tony plays online as “Panormic” and kicked off the series with a great performance, almost taking his second bracelet after making it ahead of over 1,700 entries in Event #1. He finished third in the event for $57,881.
Tony returned to the final table on July 21st and closed out another great run, this time taking his second career bracelet. He beat a field of 1,361 entrants to win $168,342.09 in the WSOP Online Event #21: $777 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Handed.
Tony was awarded his first bracelet back in 2016 when he scored the WSOP Event #63 ($1,000 NLH) for $339,354.
In 2019, he came close to winning another bracelet when he finished 2nd in the 2019 WSOP $5,000 buy-in event for $374,886.
LearnWPT Lead instructor Nick Binger took his second career bracelet after defeating a field of 2,408 entrants in the WSOP Online Event #24: $400 No-Limit Hold’em 8-Handed. He won $133,412.83 in the event.
Nick has spent much of his time over the past five years building LearnWPT.com, where his students receive instruction from a highly experienced professional poker player. He has succeeded at the highest levels and is effective at breaking down poker concepts and strategies, and he is in control of the curriculum.
Back in 2011, Nick scored his first bracelet in the WSOP Event #57: $5,000 Buy-in Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better for $397,207. He has also appeared at various other WSOP final tables.
Andrew “LuckyChew” Lichtenberger became an instructor for Team LearnWPT and brought his hand analysis skills and introspective thought process. Because of this, his content and poker training is highly-regarded. Lichtenberger is considered one of the original poker strategy content creators.
LuckyChewy has competed and won almost every major title in poker. This summer is a continuation of his constant winning no matter the stakes or location.
Andrew didn’t take gold, but he did score an impressive $140,167 for his 3rd-place finish in the $1,000 buy-in Main Event.
He took his first bracelet back in 2016 when he won the WSOP $3,000 Buy-in Event #52 for $569,159. He also almost received a second bracelet when he put forth a second-place effort in the $50,000 buy-in high roller Event #5 for $917,932.
The three instructors and their performances are just some of the many highlights from the online events taking place this summer. There is still a lot more action to go, and many more names will receive attention.
