Josh Reichard (cover-image) topped the 368-player field in the two-day-long 2022/23 WSOP Circuit – Horseshoe Council Bluffs (Omaha/Iowa) Main Event. Reichard walked away with a $120,445 cash prize, his thirteenth WSOP Circuit Ring, and a free entry to the 2023 WSOP Tournament of Champions. John Fagg cashed $74,439 in second place.

Reichard has been around the poker scene since 2012. His most notable score dates to 2018, when he championed the $2,500 NLHE – HPT Championship Event at the Heartland Poker Tour. He has ITM-ed 16 live tournaments this year, including three FT finishes. This victory is his best finish yet in 2022 and fetched him his maiden title of the year.

“It feels great. This one feels the best because it’s the Circuit Main. I’ve never won a Circuit Main. It’s been elusive, the Circuit Main victory, so to win one of those, I’ve always wanted to,” a joyous Reichard said after winning the event.

The poker pro had a rail filled with supporters, including his father, who proudly sat next to him in the winner photo. Reichard was out of the WSOPC action for a while due to the pandemic and said that he enjoys live events as they are fun.

“The stops are fun when your friends are there, you’re having a good time. I try to make the tables fun and chat a little bit. Obviously, money and trophies are good, but I think having a good time at these stops is important too.”

He added, “I love poker. I love everything about it. I’m not going to move on to anything beyond poker regardless of results, but a bracelet is next on the list of accomplishments for sure.”

The $1,700 buy-in event registered 368 entries generating a $557,520 prize pool, which was distributed among the top 55 finishers.

Josh Reichard battled John Fagg heads-up before taking down the Main Event.

On the final hand, Reichard raised 250,000, and Fagg called for his remaining 2.75 Million. Reichard promptly called.
