WSOP 2022: Kartik Ved Leading Top 6 In Event #87

Kartik Ved Eliminated On 4th Spot. 

While the entire Indian poker community was rooting for Ved, as he was extremely closer to getting the bracelet home, he busted on the 4th spot and cashed $172,103. If Ved would have cracked this event, it would have been his first WSOP live bracelet and overall this would have been his second bracelet.

Kartik Ved’s Final Hand

Farid Jattin shoved first to act at Level 32, where the blinds were 150,000 – 300,000 ante 300,000. Ved called in the small blind for 3,000,000. 

Kartik Ved: 7 7
Farid Jattin: K J

Ved was ahead but the jack on the flop of the board A J 9 5 6 saw him take the fourth spot. Just minutes before he busted, WSOP bracelet winner Aditya Sushant took to his Instagram and posted that Ved was running deep in this event. 

The event was shipped by Michael Wang who wins his second WSOP bracelet. He pocketed a massive $541,604 and sweated it out amongst several bracelet winners to take home this title. The runner up in the event is Farid Jattin who was playing for his first ever live title but he could not make it. He cashed $334,747.

9-time bracelet winner Erik Seidel busted on 3rd position. Although he wasn’t the chip lead, he was going quite strong until he busted at Level 32, when the blinds were 150,000-300,000, 300,000 ante. Seidel cashed $238,321. 

Update: Yuval Bronshtein Eliminated In 4th Position

Two time WSOP bracelet winner Yuval Bronshtein has been eliminated in the fourth spot. He walks away with $126,089. Ved is now among the top four players. 

Update: Billy O’Neil busted in 6th position

Michael Wang eliminated O’Neil in the 6th position for $83,740. Jattin opened with 400,000 and O’Neil three-bet all-in with 2,450,000 chips. Michael Wang from the big blind position took the four-bet all-in route which led to Jattin folding. O’Neil’s pocket nines were trashed by Wang’s Dimes on a board of  3 3 4 6 J .

This event is literally a battle between bracelet winners as among the top five players, Ved, Michael Wang (1 WSOP bracelet), Yuval Bronshtein (2 WSOP bracelets), Erik Seidel (9 WSOP bracelet) all hold bracelets. 

Day 2 of Event #87: $5,000 8-Handed No-Limit Hold’em is underway with India’s Kartik Ved sitting on the numero uno spot in chip counts. Ved has 11,250,000 chips at his disposal. The next player after him is Farid Jattin, who has a chip stack of 8,300,000 and is 2,950,000 chips away from the chip leader. This event is yet another one where Ved is running pretty deep. The game is currently at Level 29 with blinds at 100,000 / 200,000, ante 200,000. He eliminated Will Nguyen, who took the 8th position for $54,185. At the end of Day 1, Ved was in the 19th position and had a stack of 179,500 chips. 

Other notable players who were grinding in this event include six-time WSOP bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu, Elio Fox, Mike Matusow, 16-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth among others. If all goes well, Ved will come home with a bracelet or will surely end up cashing hefty!
