WSOP 2022: Aleksejs Ponakovs Denies Phil Ivey His 11th Bracelet In Event #42


Event #42: $100,000 High Roller NLH at the ongoing World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 has ended and we have a new winner in Aleksejs Ponakovs. The Latvian player pocketed a massive $1,897,363 as the top prize.

Ponakovs was overjoyed after the win. “I’m really pleased to finally get the bracelet. There is for sure some good stuff happening right now in my head. I will realize later [as it sinks in].” “At first I was really laughing about it, but it really helped in the end,” he said. He also added that the poker world will be seeing a lot more of him soon: “I am getting better and better in life. I am coming for more events,” he added.
