WSOP 2022: Leo Soma Wins His First Bracelet In Event #14


The mega annual poker festival, the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 is running all guns blazing at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas. And we have a new winner in Leo Soma, who managed to grab gold, i.e. the coveted WSOP gold bracelet in Event #14: $1,500 6-Handed No-Limit Hold’em. The Frenchman grabbed a top prize of $456,889 and his maiden gold bracelet.

The event saw a massive number of 2,393 entries battling it out for the prize pool of $3,193,320. Day 2 of this event started with 159 survivors which then boiled down to only 16 players at the end of the day. Among these was Soma who was placed in the middle of the pack. However, he took the chip lead early on Day 3 and maintained it throughout. Soma enjoyed a rail including a few fans that came dressed in shirts printed with Soma’s face. Every time Soma won a pot, they railed with chants, songs, and banging. 

The first casualty on the final table of seven was the 2009 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event winner Joe Cada. The four-time WSOP bracelet winner exited in seventh place for $61,098. Next in line was Ivan Zhechev, who left the table in sixth place taking home a pay cheque of $81,188. Derek Sudell fell in fifth place and pocketed $1,09,083, followed by Daniel Wellborn in fourth place for $1,48,171. Finally it was Soma who scored a double elimination in Maximiliano Gallardo and Thomas Schultz, who exited at the second runner-up and runner-up spot for $2,03,451 and $2,82,358.
