WSOP 2022: Leonard And Jørstad Nail Tag Team; Two More Bracelets Awarded


The World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 is seeing some intense action as more and more bracelets are being awarded. Players are heading to Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas to participate in the last leg of the coveted series. New players are tasting victory at the annual series for the first time, while others are adding bracelets to their existing collections. 

Three events namely, Event #55: $1,000 Tag Team, Event #57: $600 Deep Stack Championship No-Limit Hold’em and Event #58: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Eight Or Better came to an end over the past two days, while several other tournaments are currently underway. Here’s what went down at the three events.

Event #55: $1,000 Tag Team

Tag Team is one of the most anticipated events on the WSOP schedule every year. This year the event had 913 teams battling for a prize pool of $812,570. The top 137 players were paid as the min-cash stood at $1,611. 

Team Leonard composed of UK’s Patrick Leonard and Norway’s Espen Jørstad shipped the event for a $148,067 top prize. At the runner-up place was American duo Jamie Kerstetter and Corey Paggeot. 

Previously two Indian players have clinched their bracelets in this event. Like every year, this year too several Indian players participated at this event, including Abhishek Goindi, Paawan Bansal and Nikita Luther among others. Former WSOP bracelet winner Luther, who clinched her bracelet in this event in 2018, cashed at the 142nd spot this year for $1,611.

Event #55 Final Table Payouts:

  1. Patrick Leonard and Espen Jørstad – $148,067

Event #57: $600 Deep Stack Championship No-Limit Hold’em

4,913 players battled it out across four days before Hungarian player Tamas Lendvai emerged victorious in Event #57: $600 Deep Stack Championship No-Limit Hold’em. The event had a prize pool of $2,505,630, which was shared by the top 737 players. The min-cash paid was $961. Lendvai beat Germany’s Frank Reichel to clinch his first-ever WSOP bracelet for $299,464. Reichel finished second for $185,027.

An overjoyed and emotional Lendvai yelled after learning he had nailed it. He later collapsed on the floor pumping his fists in the air with excitement. “Since I’ve been playing poker I’ve been dreaming about this moment so what can I say… It means the world. It means everything and more for me and for my family. I did this for my dad, who’s battling cancer now. Dad, let’s do it,” he told PokerNews.

After 13 hours of play on the final day, Lawrence Brandt claimed his first bracelet along with a pay cheque of $289,610, which was his career-best. At the runner-up spot was Corey Wade pocketing $179,010.
