Notable Exits So Far from the 2022 WSOP Main Event

Notable eliminated players from WSOP 2022 Main Event

 

The first few days of the WSOP 2022 are over! The first days of play saw some notable entries to the biggest poker tournament in the world. We have seen some serious action, and of course, a few of the biggest names in the game have walked out of Bally’s Event Center with their tails between their legs. Let’s take a look at some of the notable exits from the first few days of the WSOP Main Event.


Daniel Negreanu exits the 2022 WSOP Main Event

Daniel Negreanu eliminated from WSOP 2022 Main event

This is a world series that DNegs would probably sooner rather forget. His usual cheerful demeanour has been soured by a downswing involving a run of soul-crushing bad beats. The now infamous incident where his camera tripod took the force of his frustration came from a pretty awful runner-runner beat, and his exit from the Main Event was preceded by an equally nasty beat. To sum it up, DNegs got it in post-flop with 7♣7♥ after flopping a boat on a Q♣Q♠7♦board. He was promptly called by Q♥9♥ only to await a 9♠ on the river.  Struggling to keep his composure, he muttered, ‘I thought I could take it, but I just can’t… I can’t take it.’

Sigh, we’ve all been there…

After another beat where he lost a flip (no surprise), he wasn’t left with much behind and departed the Main Event with A♠K♠ after getting five preflop callers.

 

Phil Ivey out in the second-last hand of the night

Phil Ivey eliminated from WSOP 2022 Main Event

Ivey walked out after looking to double before the end of day 1D. On the button, Andrew Touchette raised preflop to 1,300, getting a shove from Ivey in the small blind for his remaining 17,000 stack. Touchette called showing AQ to Ivey’s K10. The board ran out A J 5 10 8 sending Ivey home.

Ivey hasn’t had a bad run, cashing at eight 2022 WSOP tournaments and landing a spot on the final table in four of them.

 

Phil Hellmuth hits the rail in the Main Event

Phil Hellmuth eliminated from WSOP 2022 Main event

Hellmuth, kitted out in his Darth Vader outfit, lost a massive chunk of his stack an hour into play on Day 2ABC. Going up against Shawn Smith blind on blind, money went in after a 4♦Q♦8♥ flop. Both players then checked the nothing 2♣ on the turn and saw Hellmuth removing his costume in favour of a more reasonable yellow and black jersey. On the river, a 3♣, Hellmuth bet 12,000 and was raised to 30,000. After a serious tank, he flicked in a call only to be shown Smith’s A♣5♣ runner-runner wheel. Hellmuth showed his K♣K♠ before tossing it into the muck.

Left with 6,500, the 16-time bracelet winner then got it all in with K♣J♦ against Jeff Frerichs who showed 6♠6♦ for a race. The flop brought a K♦ for Hellmuth which improved to two pair with a J♣ on the turn, but a 6♥ on the river shattered his 2022 WSOP Main event chances.

Unfortunately, the force was not with the poker brat this time.

 

Other notable players eliminated from WSOP 2022

  • The 2004 Main Event champion, Greg Raymer, was eliminated on day 1C
  • Two-time bracelet winner Chance Kornuth was eliminated on day 1B
  • Podcast host and vlogger Jeff Gross was eliminated on day 1B
  • Reigning player of the year, Josh Arieh, was eliminated on day 1A
  • Top of the all-time German money list, Fedor Holz, was eliminated on day 1D

2022 WSOP main event winner Espen Jorstad

Espen Jørstad wins the 2022 WSOP Main Event

What a tournament, and what a winner! Espen J ø rstad has claimed the most coveted title in poker, the WSOP Main Event, walking away with $10,000,000 and the gold bracelet to rule them all. Jørstad ploughed through a huge field of 8,663 players for the ultimate championship title after a gruelling 9 days of play. He is the first Norwegian ever to win the Main Event title. How the final day of play went down Three players went into the final day with Jørstad an overwhelming chip leader with 57% of the chips in play (298,000,000). Adrian Attenborough from Australia was in distant second on 149,800,000, and the Argentinian Michael Duek was short stacked with 72,100,000. On the tenth hand of the day, Attenborough went up against Duek in what would be the latter's final hand of the tournament. With blinds on 1.5M/3M, Attenborough found A♣J♣ on the dealer button and raised to 6m. Duek on the small blind looked down at K♥8 ♦ and re-popped to 23M. Jørstad folded his K8o from the big blind and Attenborough called. Both players checked the Q ♦ 5♥10♣ flop, only to see the party card K♠ on the turn. Duek bet 17M and Attenborough smooth called. The uneventful 3♠ river saw Duek all but shove his stack, leaving himself with a 5M chip behind to which Attenborough announced all in. Duek tossed in his final chip to be beaten by broadway and left the tournament in third with $4,000,000. The intense heads-up duel began with a hand that lasted almost 30 minutes, Attenborough tanking for his tournament life with bottom pair. He eventually found the fold, but lost over half his stack in the process. The final hand of the tournament saw a similar tank from Attenborough, but this time, he couldn't find a fold. Blinds on 2M/4M, both players on similar stacks, with Jørstad about 50M ahead. With no action preflop, both players went into the flop with mediocre hands: Attenborough with J♣4♠ and Jørstad with Q ♦ 2♠. The flop promised action, showing 2♥4♥2♣. Attenborough checked , and Jørstad put in a baby bet of 4M. Attenborough raised to 14M and Jørstad 3-bet to 32M. After a pretty quick call from Attenborough, the turn showed a nothing-card 8♠ to which Attenborough checked . Jørstad put in a bet of 62M and Attenborough called. The river filled Jørstad up with a Q♣ to which Attenborough again opened with a check . Jørstad took his time, eventually announcing all in . After a mammoth tank, Attenborough made the call, thinking he was being bluffed by Jørstad. He left the tournament second taking home $6,000,000. A formidable opponent, Jørstad happily accepted his bracelet and his monster first prize of $10,000,000. Who is Espen Jørstad? Having played most of the tournament barefoot and finding his 'chill' every time he was faced with an important decision, Espen Jørstad was the picture of level-headed throughout the WSOP Main Event. Primarily a cash player, Jørstad dabbles in tournaments every now and again, and he is quite well known online as Hymn2ninkasi on PokerStars , and COVFEFE-19 on GGPoker. He won his seat to the Main Event online at GGPoker in a $1,050 satellite and will continue onto the WSOP Europe Main Event after securing a seat simply by making the final table. He has mentioned that with his winnings, he's excited to start playing in more tournaments as his bankroll is now considerably bigger. He's looking forward to getting into the High Roller scene and playing more $25,000 tournaments. He has also mentioned, however, that he needs to get back to studying the poker basics to be sure that he's good enough. Humble much? The first thing he did when he won was phone his biggest fan: his mother. She was crying and had trouble speaking. She's my biggest fan, so it was kind of emotional. Currently living in London, Jørstad is a former Unibet Poker Ambassador and popular Twitch streamer . 2022 WSOP Main Event Final Table Results Place Player Country Prize 1st Espen Jørstad Norway $10,000,000 2nd Adrian Attenborough Australia $6,000,000 3rd Michael Duek Argentina $4,000,000 4th John Eames United Kingdom $3,000,000 5th Matija Dobric Croatia $2,250,000 6th Jeffrey Farnes United States $1,750,000 7th Aaron Duczak Canada $1,350,000 8th Philippe Souki United Kingdom $1,085,000 9th Matthew Su United States $850,675 10th Asher Conniff United States $675,000 Congratulations to Espen Jørstad on a very well-deserved win.
