Adam Walton’s WSOP 2023 Main Event Journey

“It feels like a dream,” Walton told PokerNews while describing his WSOP 2023 Main Event journey. He qualified through flight Day 1c with a mid-stack of 60,200 chips. After playing Day 2abc (which was a combined flight), Walton bagged the 402nd-best bag from among 1,877 survivors with 244,000 chips.

He ended his Day 3 journey with the 25th-highest stack of 1,339,000 chips among the 1,877 players. On Day 4, he managed to chip up to 3,405,000 chips and concluded the day as the 17th-best stack among 441 players. Day 5 was a bumpy ride for Walton, who slipped to the 77th position among the 149 players with a mid-stack of 3,625,000.

However, he bounced back on Day 6 to conclude the day with 4x the stack. He had the 21st-best stack of 12,225,000 chips among the 49 players left. Day 7 saw him steadily climb to end the day with the second-best stack of 75,475,000 among the top 15. A major chunk of this came when he busted the last Indian standing Anirban Das just before the end of the day and collected a massive 6 Million worth of pot.

Finally, he bagged the best stack of 143,800,000 chips among the final nine at the end of Day 8. Another thing to note is that the second-best stack is 90,300,000, which is far behind him.
