The World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 has been going on in full steam at Bally’s and Paris Casino in Las Vegas, and there seems to be no end to the unparalleled action. WSOP events have been crowning winners one after the other as several players are marking their first-ever WSOP victories, while some adding more to their list.
The past week saw the three events, namely Event #43: $500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em, Event #45: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed and Event #46: $5,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold’em concluded on a high note. Here’s more about the three events:
This event had 4,786 entrants battling it out at this $500 buy-in event. The event generated a prize pool of $2,010,120, which was shared by the top 718 entries as the min-cash stood at $801. Defense attorney David Perry emerged victorious and clinched his first-ever WSOP and cashed $241,729. Perry beat two-time WSOP bracelet winner Chris Moorman, as the latter finished second for $149,405.
Commenting on how he plans to celebrate the victory, Perry said he has to “fly back [to Columbus, Ohio] and give a bracelet to my 94-year-old mother.” He did confess that he has some plans for the money though, he shared he would fire a bullet in the $1,000 Seniors Event, and might take his chances in the $10,000 Main Event. He also added that the win has given him the opportunity to ‘throw his hat in the ring.’
Event #43 Final Table Payouts:
This event saw Phil Hui grabbing his third WSOP bracelet for $311,782. The event had a field of 1,438 entries, contributing to a total prize pool worth $1,918,385. The top 216 places at the event finished in the money and grabbed a min-cash of $2,405 at this $1,500 buy-in event. Hui beat Daniel Tordjman in the heads-up to win the event. Tordjman settled at the runner-up spot for $192,674.
Hui began Day 3 with a middle stack. Florida had a huge rail of his friends and his wife Loni Hui, who is also a WSOP bracelet winner. Hui jokingly said, “The more important thing is that I broke the tie with my wife, before this, we both had two, now I have three.”
Event #45 Final Table Payouts:
Event #46: $5,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold’em was nailed by Jonathan Pastore for $311,782. French-player Pastore denied Stephen Song his second bracelet, defeating him in the heads-up. Song took the second spot and pocketed $476,990. The $5,000 buy-in event had 928 entries battling it out for a prize pool of $4,243,500. The top 138 places cashed a min-cash of $8,053.
“Having all of my friends on the rail really helped me. We are a big group of friends and poker players who live in Malta and came to play the World Series. Coming from the amateur poker circles in France, with all my friends around me, I feel I mixed those two worlds today and it’s beautiful,” Pastore said after clinching the title.
