2022 WSOP: Amnon Filippi Ships Event #7: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 Or Better


Amnon Filippi shipped Event #7: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, and took home $252,718 and won his first-ever World Series Of Poker (WSOP) bracelet. Previously, Filippi cashed for the first time in the 2005 WSOP but a bracelet win is unparalleled. Talking about his victory against Matt Vengrin, the New York-based player said, “I’m just glad to get it out of the way. I belong to a crew of guys like JC Tran, Quinn Do, Tommy Hang, and all three of them have bracelets. I am now on the list of having one and I’ve got to go for another.”

Talking about the wishes pouring in, he further added, “My mobile has been vibrating for quite some time now. They all know that I appreciate them. It is just very good to know that people are paying attention.”

Final Hand 

The flop opened to K , 9 , K . Vengrin had A , Q , 3 , 2 while Filippi had 9 , 8 , 7 and 6 . The river and turn flipped as 4 and 10 respectively. Filippi scooped the pot with two pairs, his pair of nines in hand and a pair of kings, already on the board.
