A total of three gold bracelets were awarded on Monday during the latest action from the 2022 World Series of Poker.

Each victory came from a player winning their first WSOP bracelet. The biggest winner of the day was Chad Eveslage, as he took down the $25,000 High Roller on Monday. Eveslage was pleased in victory after falling short in numerous final tables. “I feel good. It’s nice to win. It’s a lot of money after a tough tournament. The venue is great, it’s definitely an upgrade from the Rio!”

The win scored Eveslage his first WSOP bracelet and an impressive $1,415,610 prize. An impressive 251 entries joined the event with a final table that included big names such as Jake Schindler and Josh Arieh.

Here’s how payments for the final table finished up:

  • 1 – Chad Eveslage ($1,415,610)
  • 2 – Jake Schindler ($874,915)
  • 3 – Josh Arieh ($616,047)
  • 4 – Chris Brewer ($442,213)
  • 5 – Brek Schutten ($323,730)
  • 6 – Koray Aldemir ($241,791)
  • 7 – Antonio Lievano ($184,324)
  • 8 – Ognyan Dimov ($143,480)

Other WSOP bracelet winners

Alex Livington won his first WSOP bracelet on Monday evening after winning the $1,500 7 Card Stud to win gold and a $103,292 first place prize. Livingston outlasted 329 entries over 3 days to take home the hardware. Since his third-place finish in the 2019 WSOP Main Event he had his eyes on the prize.

“I used to be mostly just a cash game player. Since the Main Event, it got me more inspired to play a few more tournaments, especially going harder during the world series. So this win doesn’t really change my plans for this WSOP as I was going to play a full schedule anyway.”

In Event #7, the $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 of Better, Amnon Filippi won the event to take home his first WSOP bracelet and a $252,718 first-place prize. He beat Matt Vengrin heads-up and a total field of 1,086 players to win the tournament.

None of these winners received a nipple massage at the WSOP final table.
