When it comes to memorable hands on the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 Main Event, there is no shortage. Just recently Alejandro Lococo pulled of one of the biggest bluffs and today we have another interesting hand which features a preflop all-in with aces, queens, and jacks. Yup! So buckle up and lets see what actually went down.
The WSOP 2022 Main Event has seen a total of 8,663 entries participate in the tournament. Out of this, 86 players made it to Day 6 of the event. It was during this time, that three players picked up premium starting hands with the blinds at 50,000/100,000. Out of the three, two of them have stack sizes of around 20 big blinds and were looking to double up in hopes of making it to the final table.
Seated on the PokerGO feature table, Haim Or Krief raised 220,000 from an early position holding Pocket Queens (Q ♠ Q ❤ ). Gabriel Cruz who was holding Pocket Aces (A ♠ A ♦ ) then three-bet 540,000. Stanley Lee who had Pocket Jacks (J ♠ J ♦ ) continued and pushed 1,840,000 into the pot. The other two called and the flop opened.
The 5 ♣ 8 ❤ 7 ❤ on the flop did nothing much, however, it was the T ❤ on the turn where the action started unfolding. Player Or Krief had extra outs as the turn brought him a flush draw. The poker gods must have surely been on his side as the river complete his flush with A ❤ . With this win, Or Krief, eliminated two birds with a flush as Stanley Lee busted in 86th place for $86,000 and Gabriel Cruz exited in 85th place for #86,000. Or Krief collected a huge pot of 5,070,000 and has a stack size close to 10 million. This incredible win put him among the chip leaders mid-way through the day.
If you’re looking for more interesting hands on the Main Event, don’t miss out on PokerStars ambassador Alejandro Lococo’s mad bluff. The Argentinian rapper who also goes by the moniker Papo MC pulled off one of the sickest bluffs and bumped his way deeper into the Main Event while doing so.
Day 6 of the Main Event ended with 35 players remaining. The players bagged and tagged their chips and will resume play tomorrow on Day 7. With a mega stack of 37,825,000 chips, Jeffrey Farnes leads the surviving players into Day 7. Brian Kim is close behind with the second-highest chip lead with 33,875,000 chips. However, despite his epic moment, Haim Or Krief did not make it and was eliminated in 58th position for $145,800. Still, finishing 58th in a WSOP Main Event where the total number of entries is 8,663 is not a small feat and Or Krief really played his game well.
