WSOP 2022: Brad Ruben Ships Event #4: $1,500 Dealer’s Choice For 4th Bracelet

Brad Ruben has shipped the 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event #4: $1,500 Dealer’s Choice for $126,288. The American player outsmarted the defending champion Jaswinder Lally to grab the top spot. For his second-place finish Lally got $78,048 in prize money. Talking about the winner of Event #4, Ruben grabbed his fourth bracelet after shipping the $1,500 Dealer’s Choice tournament. He became the third player to join the league of David Peters and Scott Seiver—players who won their fourth gold bracelet through the four events concluded so far.

 While talking about shipping the $1,500 Dealer’s Choice event, Ruben said, “This one is very, very special. I kind of feel like this one is a little bigger than me,” Ruben said about his win. The four-time WSOP bracelet winner also opened up about the cause he supports. He said, “I wore this shirt. It’s a charity called Shields & Stripes. They help vets. They help first responders and police officers who have injuries that aren’t really seen. I honestly feel like this is bigger than me. I’m representing them. I’m donating one percent of my winnings but also, I’m trying to get the word out about organizations like them and maybe spread the word on maybe other poker players donating to charities.”

As per a news report by pokernews.com, the Dealer’s Choice winner was introduced to the charity by one of his coaches. “I feel like when I play for a cause, I’m more fulfilled. It’s like a more wholesome way to play the game. The game can sometimes feel like it’s a little bit selfish, so this makes me feel more fulfilled,” said Ruben.

Final day action

At Level 29, in a Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO) 8 or Better game, Alfred Atamian was shown the door. After being forced to go all-in from the big blind with a terribly short stack, Lally matched Atamian’s all-in bet. The stars were aligned in Lally’s favour as he hit a full house which was game over for Atamian who finished 7th Place for $13,153.

 Next eliminations came in the form of Charles Bransford at Level 30. Ruben showed a straight and his rival’s 4-pair couldn’t hold water. For a 6th place finish Bransford took $17,944 in prize money. Jorge Walker was the next player to leave the game. He lost while playing against Ben Yu. Walker did manage to get a chip lead position once during the game, but that proved to be inconsequential as he had to end his tournament journey, but not without taking a pay cheque of $25,056.

It was Ruben’s turn to show a player the way out. And that player was Ben Yu. Ruben had better two pairs which helped him sail through. Yu left at the 4th place for $35,793. In a Five-Card Draw game, Naoya Kihara shoved all-in with his remaining chips (800,000). Ruben snap called and eventually took down the pot which meant exit time for Kihara at the 3rd place for $52,282.

Jaswinder Lally

The heads-up clash between Lally and Ruben began at Level 34. The final outcome of this heads-up battle saw Ruben winning the tournament and his 4th WSOP bracelet. As for Lally it was time to congratulate the new winner. The defending champion of the $1,500 Dealer’s Choice event had a payday of $78,048 for his runner-up finish.
