WSOP 2022: Ben Diebold Beats Former WSOP Winners To Win His First Bracelet


Another event at the ongoing World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 has come to an end at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas. And we have a new winner who clinched his maiden WSOP bracelet in Event #10: $10,000 Dealer’s Choice 6-Handed Championship in the form of Ben Diebold. He grabbed the title and added $2,99,488 to his poker bankroll.

Diebold beat two-time WSOP bracelet winner Mike Gorodinsky in the heads-up clash to win the title. The 28-year-old also busted five-time WSOP bracelet winner Brian Rast in third place to reach heads-up with Gorodinsky.

Both the players shared a good rapport with each other and were seen having a good time together at the tournament. Diebold believes Gorodinsky is an ‘incredible player.’ Predominantly an Omaha cash game player, Diebold started playing tournaments only in the last few years. He eventually expanded his boundaries in terms of poker variants. The young WSOP bracelet winner also has Gorodinsky to thank as he was one of the reasons why Diebold forayed into other variants.

“He’s a very, very good friend of mine. He’s helped me a lot in my mixed game. A lot of this is because of him. He’s a great guy, a great player, and a very good person,” says Diebold about Gorodinsky.

The four-day-long event saw a recording-breaking 123 players battling it out. In 2019, the same event had 122 entries. The final prize pool in Event #10: $10,000 Dealer’s Choice 6-Handed Championship stood at $1,146,975. Day 3 came to an end after two players were set to lock horns on Day 4 to crown the winner.

Ultimately, Diebold grabbed a top prize of $2,99,488 along with the shiny new WSOP gold bracelet; Gorodinsky who fell short of winning his third bracelet settled for a consolation prize of $185,095.

Talking to PokerNews about his victory, Diebold said, “It’s pretty exhilarating. My heart’s still pumping! I woke up a couple of times last night and realized it wasn’t 11 AM or midday, but 6 AM.” Interestingly, Diebold arrived a few minutes early and was seen waiting for Gorodinsky. Both players had decided to postpone the duel for the title after the elimination of Brian Rast in third place the previous night.

WSOP 2022 Event #10 Final Table Results:

  1. Ben Diebold – $299,488
  2. Mike Gorodinsky – $185,095
  3. Brian Rast – $134,370
  4. Christopher Claassen – $98,738
  5. Naoya Kihara – $73,453
  6. Randy Ohel – $55,329
