Another event at the ongoing World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 has come to an end, with another player taking home the coveted WSOP gold bracelet. Event #20: $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw concluded at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas, with Russia’s Denis Nesterenko grabbing his first-ever WSOP bracelet and the largest cash of his career ($1,08,250).
The event had a final prize pool of $4,67,250, which was accumulated by the participation of 350 entries. After two action-packed days, the top nine finalists returned on Day 3 to battle it one last time for the ultimate title. After over eight hours of play into Day 3, the event had its winner.
The Moscow-based player was rather emotional after his win, as he said, “I’m very happy.” This happens to be Nesterenko’s second WSOP tournament and his first WSOP cash.

Lynn exited at the seventh spot taking home $10,945. Next in line was four-time WSOP bracelet winner and mixed game specialist Benny Glaser bidding farewell at the sixth place for $14,947. China’s Yufei Zhong, who came into the day with the second-highest stack and scored the first two bust-outs, was next in line to exit at the fifth place. Zhong walked away with $20,948.
Hieu Luu followed at the fourth spot with a pay cheque of $30,107. Finally, Evan Sayer busted at the third place leaving the final two for a heads-up. Sayer walked away with $44,347 in his bankroll. In the heads-up clash, Nesterenko beat Von Altizer, as the latter settled for the runner-up spot, taking home $66,910, which happens to be the largest cash of her career.
