WSOP 2022: Kartik Ved Pretty Close To Nailing A Bracelet


The Indian poker fraternity is eagerly waiting for a World Series of Poker (WSOP) gold bracelet to come home and looks like Kartik Ved might just get the job done. This poker pro is sitting with the second highest chip stack (58,500,000 chips) in Event #66: $1,000 Mini Main Event. Cosmin Joldis is leading the pack of survivors at the end of Day 2. This Romanian player has 180,000,000 stacks at his disposal to ship the Mini Main Event when the play resumes on Day 3. But, Ved too is determined in shipping this event and grabbing the shiny bracelet. For those who don’t know, in WSOP 2021 Ved was eliminated in the 77th position for $5,305 in the same event. It would be interesting to see if he ships it this time.

Event #66: $1,000 Mini Main Event of the WSOP 2022 had a strong player field of 5,833 entries who fought hard for the coveted first spot. But only 478 survivors returned on Day 2. The prize pool stands at $5,191,370 and the first place finisher will get a pay cheque of $593,985. The final table is set with five players ready to lock horns, each of whom are guaranteed a pay cheque of at least $158,488. This event also had WSOP barcelet winner Aditya Sushant participating but was eliminated in the 417th position for $2,597. Raghav Bansal was also grinding on Day 2 but exited at the 156th spot for $4,133. This happens to be Bansal’s second cash at WSOP 2022. 

India Online Poker Championship (IOPC) January 2021 Main Event champion Laksh Pal Singh shared a picture from Mini Main Event which displayed Ved’s second chip lead position. Take a look below.

Talking about the final table, we have Kei Nitta (64,000,000 chips) in the third spot. Young Sik Eum in the fourth spot with 34,200,000 chips. And Phillip Lee is the shortest stack on the table with 23,000,000 chips at his disposal. 

The event saw five-time WSOP bracelet winner Shaun Deeb busting in the 18th place for $23,148. It wasn’t a great day for Deeb as his A3 offsuit were thrashed by Theodore Lee’s pocket nines.
