The fourth online bracelet event of the ongoing 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) drew 470 runners on WSOP.com and played down to a winner in the wee hours of Monday, June 20. Following 13 hours of play, US based Matt “PmpknHead” Szymaszek beat the competition and emerged champion to grab his first career bracelet and the top prize of $141,705.
The event generated a $712,800 prize pool and paid out the top 126 finishers.
Some of the notables who entered the field but fell out before the final table were Phil Galfond (84th for $1,568), Ryan Leng (71st for $1,853), 16-time bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth (52nd for $2,424), and five-time bracelet champion Shaun Deeb (20th for $3,992)
It took 11 hours of action for the field to narrow down to the final six.
Nathan Gamble (7th for $17,036) bubbled the final table.
Final Table Recap
An hour after Gamble’s elimination, Jeffrey Brown departed in sixth place after Greg Koutelidakis’ rivered flush outdid his two-pair.
“Goforbrok3” lost their tournament life in fifth place, and ‘Pohnkemon’ was the next player to fall out in fourth place.
Three-handed play continued for an hour, during which time the chip lead exchanged hands between the three players. Finally, “brat337” ran into the set of Koutelidakis to exit in third place.
The heads-up match turned out to be a quick affair as both Greg “shpadoones” Koutelidakis and Matt “PmpknHead” Szymaszek were all-in preflop soon. The latter was slightly ahead and made a full house to win the fourth online bracelet of the series.
