Henry Acain WSOP bracelet 2022

Henry Acain has won the $500 buy-in Housewarming No-Limit Hold’em event on Tuesday, outlasting a mammoth field of 20,080 entries. For his efforts, he wins $701,215 and his first gold bracelet.

The win in the event, which only required a $500 entry, Acain needed to outlast the largest field so far during the 2022 WSOP. With over 20,000 entries, the event plowed through its guaranteed $5 million prize pool, paying out over $10 million.

In post-match comments, Acain said the win was a lifetime accomplishment. “Amazing, I feel pretty good about it. It’s like my dream come true.”

The final table of the event was live-streamed through PokerGo and posted on YouTube:

We got the first one, let’s see how many more we’re gonna get.

Other big winners included Qing Liu ($207,192), Hung Tran ($154,831), and Nicole Limo Greene.
