WSOP 2022: Abhinav Iyer Finishes 38th In Event #86 


After returning to Day 3 of Event #86: $10,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold’em Championship at the World Series of Poker (WSOP), Indian poker pro Abhinav Iyer finished in the 38th position for $20,000 (~₹15,97,273)!

Yesterday, the action at WSOP 2022 at Bally’s and Paris was abruptly halted due to a shooting scare at the Las Vegas strip. Among one of the many tournaments affected was Day 2 of Event #86: $10,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold’em Championship. Due to this, the 45 players remaining in the event were asked to bag and tag early and return for Day 3. As last recorded, Daniel Rezaei was the chip lead with around 1,100,000 chips.

The action for Day 3 resumed with the last 45 players grinding it on the felts; among them was WSOP bracelet winner Abhinav Iyer, who was one of the only Indians to make it this far in the tournament. Unfortunately for Iyer, the dream of winning a second bracelet ended after he was eliminated in 38th place by poker coach Brock Wilson.

Iyer’s Bust Out Hand

At Level 18 with blinds 6,000/12,000 and ante of 12,000. Iyer went all-in from the big blind position with pocket eights and a stack of 461,000 chips. Brock Wilson called his all-in from the cut-off position holding ace-king offsuit. The board ran out 9 A 5 2 9 and Wilson flopped a higher pair with his aces. He held that lead in the turn and river to end Iyer’s tournament life.

  • Abhinav Iyer: 8 8
  • Brock Wilson: A K
  • Board: 9 A 5 2 9

Abhinav Iyer is no stranger to the live felts of WSOP and has had a good run so far in WSOP 2022. He even finished 7th at Event #25: $800 No-Limit Hold’em Deepstack for $56,388 (~₹45,04,592). He clinched his first bracelet in 2019 after he shipped the Closer for $565,346 (~₹4,51,63,032).
