Event #44 $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship at the ongoing World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 at Bally’s and Paris casino in Las Vegas has concluded with Andrew Yeh clinching his maiden WSOP bracelet. Yeh tasted victory for a handsome $487,129 beating Craig Chait in the heads-up.
Yeh, who is predominantly a mixed cash game player, entered Day 3 as the chip leader and ended up clinching the title. “I feel like I’m definitely capable of winning, but in these tournaments, especially $10Ks with all of the good players, it’s really tough to navigate a field,” Yeh said during the winner interview. “So to be able to do that and make it here again from last year and actually do this is pretty surreal,” he added.
The $10,000 buy-in event had 209 players entering the event and battling it out for a prize pool of $1,948,925. The top 32 places made it in the money as the min-cash stood at $16,155. The final table was set with eight players seated. Day 3 of the event concluded when the field was condensed to the top five players.
The final five had three former bracelet winners who were eyeing their second bracelet in this event, however, all three of them busted early. The first casualty was former WSOP bracelet winner John Racner, who took eighth place for $1,08,253. Next in line was another bracelet winner Bryce Yockey, who was seen walking out for a payday of $148,896. Finally, the last bracelet winner standing, Philip Long, busted at the third spot for $209,424.
In the heads-up, Yeh defeated Chait, who was also looking for his first bracelet. Chait walked away with a paycheque of $301,068 for his second-place finish.
