  • David Peters won his 4th gold bracelet and a $1.16 million top prize at the second event of the 2022 WSOP.
  • Phil Ivey is back!

On June 2 (Thursday), David Peters bested Chance Kornuth heads up to claim his fourth gold bracelet and over $1 million first-place prize in the Event #2 of the 2022 WSOP. The battle for first place in this event was regarded one of the fastest final tables in WSOP history.

2022 WSOP Event #2: $100,000 High Roller Bounty

  • Buy-in: $100,000
  • Date: May 31 to June 2, 2019
  • Entries: 46
  • Prize pool: $3,300,500

David Peters outlasted a player field of 46 to take home the prize money worth $1,166,810.

Peters, who taught himself how to play poker in 2004 and has risen to the highest ranks of the game, scooped up his very first gold bracelet in 2016 when he won Event #56: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em for $412,557.

In 2020, he claimed his second after winning an online bracelet in the Event #54: $10,000 Heads-Up Championship for $360,480, and last year claimed another online bracelet by taking down the Event #25: $7,777 NLH Lucky 7's High Roller for $283,940.

Final Table Action
It only took 26 hands and just more than an hour to have the final five players whittled down to the last two contenders, with heads-up play lasting just under 10 minutes.

The blazing fast final table was set on the first hand as Chance Kornuth eliminated reigning WSOP Main Event champ Koray Aldemir, when the latter's king-high could not hold against Kornuth's jack-high.

After a mere ten minutes, Ali Imsirovic was out next, as his king-queen collided into Peter's aces, which sent him in fourth place.

Peters was in the chip lead and he continued collecting $25k bounties, as he eliminated Dario Sammartino in the third spot with his pocket jacks against the Italian's unimproved ace-eight.

Despite each player starting play with over 100 big blinds, the lightning-fast heads-up match only lasted just a couple of hands. It was a swift pair-over-pair confrontation leading to all the chips going in the center, with Peter's king winning against Kornuth's eights to give him the final victory.

The final hand of the event was between Peters and Kornuth.

This is Peters' 4th gold bracelet in his poker career. This win moved Peters up to $40,165,579 in lifetime tournament earnings, according to The Hendon Mob.

Phil Ivey



*Phil Ivey graced this year's WSOP, settling on 7th place in Event #2. He is one of just four players to reach the 10-bracelet milestone, tied with Doyle Brunson and Johnny Chan, and six behind Phil Hellmuth. However, it's been eight years since the last time he won a WSOP event. How will he fare on this year's 53rd WSOP? We have yet to see how the 2022 WSOP will turn out for "the best all-round player in the world".

After his triumph, the now four-time bracelet winner was asked of the importance of his win.

Peters said, "It feels great, especially the first event of the series, first event being away from the Rio, it's such a prestigious tournament, so many great players. Getting number four is big. There are not too many people who have four. It's a very, very nice start to the series."

Peters' win comes with a bit of extra importance, as while it was a fast heads-up match, it came against Kornuth, one of the hottest players in poker.

"It's always nice to beat someone that's hot, and someone that's a great player. It wasn't exactly a super long battle heads-up, but it was nice to beat a player like that for sure."

More gold bracelets and the WSOP Player of the Year race are also locked in on Peters' radar - he says he will be firing many more events this summer, in search for more WSOP glory.

you earn the most when you have a good strategy and qualities in moving your hands. These skills bring the most success and this is what every professional player knows. Luck has a smaller amount here.
 geseco1213/06/2022 00:28:34 GMT
he is a great player, he has demonstrated for several years at a great level, it is not easy, but if you are constant and work hard the goals will be achieved, it is his fourth bracelet, and he is going for more, he is an example to follow.
 CALICUL13/06/2022 00:30:41 GMT
if you like his style and appreciate it, you can watch it more often, if you have time and want to develop your skills in live games, but which can also help you in online games. I didn't know about this player in the past and now i heard in this thread
 geseco1214/06/2022 01:34:09 GMT
a great admiration for these great players, it is not easy to stay for long years playing at a high level, this is a player that I like very much, I always see him playing both live and on the virtual mats, he always plays in the big stakes.
 CALICUL14/06/2022 01:34:14 GMT
they know how to do it very well and this player ia a good one
 geseco1215/06/2022 03:36:40 GMT
This player has always played poker with high stakes, and I think that by the fact of playing at high stakes shows the quality of player he is, for many years he has shown how good he is and I think there is no doubt about that, now enjoy it.
 dule-vu15/06/2022 04:47:41 GMT
What to say about this win and stake!when you have such amount for buy in!
 geseco1216/06/2022 03:59:47 GMT
everything starts from the bottom, and with hard work and study in poker, you can get far, it is not easy, you have to sacrifice many things, that's why these players have come very far in this sport, and we can all make it if we propose.
 dule-vu16/06/2022 07:52:15 GMT
But this limits and buy in-s are just crazy!
 geseco1221/06/2022 02:02:08 GMT
Of course it is, this is crazy, playing those amounts of money is from another planet, you have to be sure to have great ability in this game to play high, these players have a lot of experience, which they have obtained for many years.
 dule-vu21/06/2022 05:14:59 GMT
For somebody this buy in is like 10 $ for normal people,for others its amount that they can even spend for house!we are all different!
 RoninHarper21/06/2022 10:52:50 GMT
G'day mates

The buy in for this turnament ungodly expensive. In order to play in it you better have put in the hard work to study to get real good, you would have had to sacrifice alot to become great.
few have the required disciple required. I know I did not in the end,
I wish them the very best

crazy amount of money for one tournament!
 geseco1222/06/2022 02:24:25 GMT
These players are used to play with large amounts of money, that's why they have no nerves at all, we always see it in live tournaments and they are super relaxed, their professionalism is very noticeable.
 dule-vu22/06/2022 03:38:54 GMT
For them this are small amounts!
 geseco1223/06/2022 03:36:15 GMT
That's right my friend, playing a poker tournament with 100k entry for mere mortals is crazy, we would never do it, but for them it is bread and butter, they are used to play those amounts, they are not afraid of anything, that's why they are great players.
 dule-vu23/06/2022 04:48:22 GMT
You would play it if you have millions on account,like they have!
 geseco1224/06/2022 16:59:54 GMT
I know players who have won a lot of money in poker and do not play as high as others, but it is a question of whether you feel prepared to play a tournament of that magnitude.
 CALICUL24/06/2022 17:17:21 GMT
I know one who won over $ 50,000 in poker a few years ago, but of course there are many who win, you don't necessarily have to win only famous players. Bracelets were also won by lesser known players
 geseco1225/06/2022 21:21:45 GMT
That's the most beautiful thing about poker, that anyone can win a tournament, we all have the opportunity to make it happen, but always with study and work you can achieve things, there are many stories of players who won a lot of money with little.
 CALICUL25/06/2022 21:25:38 GMT
as long as he is a very good player we cannot say that he is wrong with something. The bracelets prove this and he knows what he is doing. Money is needed for him and he knows how to fight for them.
 geseco1227/06/2022 00:51:59 GMT
He is a great player, he always likes to play at high levels, he has remained for many years at the highest level, that shows that with hard work and discipline you can achieve your goals in this sport.
 CALICUL27/06/2022 00:55:12 GMT
it is normal to be a great player when he wins big prizes and bracelets. Many people play poker and have money, but if they lose and do not win bracelets then they are not such great players. Congratulations to this champion anyway.
 antonis32101/07/2022 03:00:05 GMT
Nice , more than $1M win , plus some bounties , very good payday I would say , and he also gor another WSOP bracelet by winning this tourney , which high roller , had $100K buy in , that's a lot of money for someone like me who is not a pro Smile
 dule-vu01/07/2022 04:36:23 GMT
Maybe its just 11x on buy in,but its still bracelet and win!
