Chris Hunichen outlasted fellow poker stars including Isaac Haxton, Viktor Blom and Jeremy Ausmus.

This event had one of the loudest final tables of the 2024 WSOP so far - one defined by two-outers, three-outers and a rail whose energy would be hard to match, wrapped up the evening with longtime high-stakes pro Chris Hunichen winning his very first bracelet and a career-high score of $2,838,389 in Event #47: $100,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold'em.

2024 WSOP Event #47: $100,000 High Roller

  • From June 18 to 20, 2024
  • Buy-in: $100,000
  • Prize pool: $10,836,000
  • Entries: 112

Hunichen's poker portfolio includes a runner-up finish in a 2022 online $25,000 High Roller worth $1.3 million, and a third place in the 2022 $250,000 Super High Roller for $1.9 million, but a gold bracelet had eluded "Big Huni". Of all the six players who returned for Day 3, only Hunichen and online Swedish star Viktor ‘Isildur1' Blom lacked bracelets.

As his loud group of friends and family cheered him on, Hunichen tried to fight off the tears after he won. The first person on his mind was his dad, who passed away last summer.

"I've been waiting a long time for this. I put a lot of my heart and soul into this game. I guess over the last four or five years I kind of stopped playing as much. Last year was the first full summer I put in probably four or five years. I was making a couple of sick runs and my dad passed away midway through. I didn't cash a single tournament after my dad died for the rest of the series. So coming into this one was really emotional, and I was playing for so much more than the money, the bracelet, any of that...
"I was playing for him."

Final Table Action



Hunichen said after he won:
"No one's ever due in poker, but I feel like I was due, and I've been in this position a couple times, got unlucky, a couple seconds. It was my time."

Chris Hunichen stats
It's been more than 15 years since he started playing at the World Series of Poker and a year after the sudden passing of his father when Chris Hunichen made headlines in this year's most prestigious poker series.

Thanks to his victory on the 2024 WSOP Event #47, Chris Hunichen now possesses his maiden WSOP bracelet along with the biggest payout of his poker career, worth $2,838,389.

His luck factor is so strong this year that in fact, the 39-year-old North Carolina native has managed to make third place on the 2024 WSOP Event #55: Super High Roller, claiming yet another incredible million-dollar sum prize money, worth $2,397,312.

Hunichen's total live cash earnings are now at the $16 million mark.

excellent tournament for this professional player named Chris Hunichen. The most beautiful thing at the WSOP is winning 1st place in the tournaments here and the main event is the most beautiful. Congratulations for this place and the prizes it won.

It sounds he has been through a lot, both in his personal life and in his passion for the game. Winning that bracelet must have been incredibly meaningful, not just as a victory in the game, but also as a tribute to his dad and all the emotions you've experienced. Sometimes, the most significant victories are those that go beyond the game itself.

What good news, Chris Hunichen beat other poker stars like Isaac Haxton, Viktor Blom and Jeremy Ausmus, that's poker, a game where you can beat even the most experienced players, much more is expected of this player in these events.

I still can't get over the fact how the prizepool is significantly less than the all the buy-ins collected together.
At this point what is WSOP adding to these tournaments - value wise - beside the branding because whatever is that, it's definitely not money.

Viktor Blom in third place. Very nice for him.
 geseco1230/06/2024 02:29:46 GMT
Many congratulations to this player, we know that large tournaments are very expensive and also the variance is greater, these players are always at a high level for many years, that shows the competitiveness they have in these games.
 dule-vu30/06/2024 02:35:35 GMT
This buy in is nothing for you...
 SickCallJoe02/07/2024 01:53:24 GMT
Huge huge congratulations to him he is very very well known in the scene and a long time player I follow him for a long time already.
 dule-vu02/07/2024 06:07:35 GMT
