Another big was crowned at the WSOP 2022 late Tuesday when Mike Jukich took down the 6,501-entry Monster Stack event. Lasting over four days and 14 hours of play on Tuesday, Jukich was the man on top to score his first bracelet as well as a head-turning $966,577 first-place prize.

Jukich, who jumped up on the table after his win, was understandably ecstatic after the victory. “Insane, first off I want to say hi to my fiancé Ashley Myers who’s back home, and my son Ryker. I wish they could be here. It just didn’t work out with how the scheduling was, I was short to start the day. I had like 14 bigs. I started off with a double and just kinda ran it from there. It’s just been a wild roller coaster.”

The final table included no fewer than eight six-figure winners:

  • 1st – Mike Jukich – $966,577
  • 2nd – Mateusz Moolhuizen – $597,362
  • 3rd – Francis Anderson – $499,912
  • 4th – Joao Simao – $341,095
  • 5th – Anthony Spinella – $260,315
  • 6th – David Zarrin – $199,995
  • 7th – Yoshiya Agata – $154,688
  • 8th – Jessica Teusl – $120,455
  • 9th – Richardo Caridad – $94,439
