The World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 has been going on in full swing. Event #18: $1,000 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em came to an end with Bryan Schultz nailing the top spot for a WSOP gold bracelet and $330,057 in prize money.
The event recorded 2,663 entrants, who battled it out for a prize pool of $2,370,070. The top 400 players tasted a portion of the prize pool. After 15 hours of play on Day 2, Schultz nailed the title and won his maiden WSOP bracelet.
The 35-year-old Chicago native has a circuit ring to his credit, which he won at the $1,600 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event at WSOP 2011. PokerNews asked Schultz what he expected today going into Day 2, to which he answered, ”I mean, winning a bracelet seemed so far away. I didn’t even think it was possible”. When asked how it feels to win a bracelet against winning a circuit ring, he said, “This is way better.”
He was also questioned about his cool and calm demeanor to which he said, ”I was really tuned in. I feel like I was prepared, so I was ready for all the spots that came at me. I wasn’t nervous.”
