WSOP bracelet winner Andrew Lichtenberger (cover image) was chasing his first Poker Masters score in Event #7: $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em at the 2022 Poker Masters and ended up going all the way! Taking place at the PokerGO Studio at the Aria Resort & Casino, Event #7 saw Lichtenberger outlasting Sean Winter in the heads-up play, scoring $465,750. Winter took home $345,000 for his runner-up finish.
Fondly known as ‘LuckyChewy,’ this was Lichtenberger`s second recorded live title victory of the year. He won the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Super High Roller in April. The 35-year-old poker pro is ranked 7th on the New York All-Time Money List with $13,452,371 in live tournament winnings.
Kazuhiko Yotsushika took third for $224,500, and Cary Katz finished fourth for $172,500. The result was Katz’s third cash of the series.
The $25,000 buy-in event attracted 69 entries, creating a $1,725,000 prize pool. The top 10 places were paid.
Multiple bracelet winners Chance Kornuth (5th for $138,000), Brian Rast (7th for $86,250), and Erik Seidel (8th for $69,000) were among the notables who crossed the money line.
The win fetched Lichtenberger enough points to take over the #1 position in the Poker Masters leaderboard, where he now sits with 279 points entering the final three events of the series. Cary Katz (271 points) is ranked #2, with Event #1 champion Jeremy Ausmus (242 points) rounding out the top three ranks.
