Adam Friedman 2022 WSOP

There were handful of winners over the weekend including the 2022 WSOP’s first five-time WSOP bracelet winner of the series.

Adam Friedman took down the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship to win his 5th WSOP against a field of 95 players including Jean Gaspard heads-up and the legendary Phil Ivey, who finished in third.

Friedman has been on a bit of a tear in recent years, especially in non Hold’em events. Friedman famously won the $10,000 Dealer’s Choice 6 handed event in three consecutive years, in 2018, 2019 and 2021 (the event was not held during the 2020 COVID year). His first WSOP bracelet came during the $5,000 Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo 8 or Better in 2012.

Other WSOP bracelets awarded over the weekend

In other WSOP action over the last few days, Leo Soma took down the $1,500 6-handed No Limit Hold’em. Daniel Zack won his second WSOP bracelet after an epic heads-up battle in the $10,000 Hi/Lo 8 or Better Championship. Dominick Sarle followed with a victory in the $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball.

On Saturday, Austria’s Stefan Lehner won the $3,000 No Limit Hold’em for $558,616, Bryan Schultz took down the $1,000 Freezout No Limit for $330,057 and Denis Nesterneko was on top of the Limit 2-7 Limit Triple Draw for $108,250.

In Sunday’s action, Tong Li was victorious in the $25,000 Pot Limit High Roller, in what was not only his first WSOP bracelet but his first cash, and a big one at that – $1,467,739.
