Today at the 2022 WSOP: Fabian Brandes, David Perry Earn First Bracelets, Daniel Zack Becomes This Year’s First Double Bracelet Winner

Poker News Daily - Wed, 2022-06-22 17:04

I suppose this should be called “Yesterday at the 2022 WSOP,” but considering the extremely busy Tuesday at Paris and Bally’s Las Vegas concluded with three bracelets awarded in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, we can stick with what we’ve got. Let’s take a look at the tournaments that finished up overnight at the 2022 World Series of Poker.

Fabian Brandes wins $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Six-Handed

Fabian Brandes is an Omaha specialist and so far at the World Series of Poker, he has shown off his skills. Last night, he capped off a nine-hour final table, about four hours of which remained six-handed, to win his first WSOP gold bracelet and $371,358.

His victory comes only about a week and a half after he finished second in the $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller event. Though that had to be heart breaking, the consolation there was that he bagged more than twice what he earned from his bracelet win: $907,132.

“It was a rollercoaster of a day! It is unreal to have the bracelet in my hand,” Brandes told WSOP.com afterward.

Brandes defeated Leonid Yanovski, who is in a band called Big Blind Special, heads-up to win the title.

Daniel Zack wins $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship

Daniel Zack became the first double bracelet winner of the 2022 World Series of Poker, taking the crown in the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship (say that five times fast). That’s not just two bracelets for Zack this WSOP, but two “championship” bracelets, as the other was in the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship. Guess he likes 8 or Better games.

Zack also finished third in the $10,000 Fixed-Limit 2-7 Triple Draw Lowball Championship. Add three more cashes and he is now squarely atop the 2022 WSOP Player of the Year leaderboard with 2,981.36 points.

He had to defeat David Funkhouser in what was a marathon heads-up match. He said he learned from past lengthy one-on-one duels, which helped him come out on top last night: “You just learn through experience to take it one hand at a time and do your best.”

This was Daniel Zack’s third bracelet of his career.

David Perry wins $500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em

David Perry topped a huge field of 4,786 players without the benefit of a rebuy to win the $500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em event for his first-ever bracelet. The local Las Vegas defense attorney earned $241,729 for the win after defeating British poker pro Chris Moorman heads-up.

Perry said he was “blessed, grateful” for the moment, adding, “I’ve been in Vegas since 1985, came here with $612 and two suitcases; this is my community.”

He said he was planning on taking a shot at the $1,000 Seniors Event, but now that his wallet is significantly fatter, Perry indicated that he may just go for it and enter the $10,000 Main Event. But first, the champ told WSOP.com, he needs to fly to Ohio and “give a bracelet to my 94-year-old mother.”
