More action from the 2022 World Series of Poker

The team of Patrick Leonard and Espen Jørstad won the $1,000 TAG Team No Limit Hold’em event on Wednesday night overcoming a 6:1 chip disadvantage to win their first WSOP bracelets and a combined prize of $148,067. It was both players first bracelets.

To secure the victory, Leonard and Jørstad outlasted a field of 913 teams including a team of Jamie Kerstetter and Corey Paggeot, who were also chasing their first bracelets.

In post-match comments, Patrick Leonard noted that the fact the pair split their play evenly over the four days was very beneficial.

“A lot of people had played solo for the last few days. Some had played four days by themselves, whereas we’ve probably played about 50:50. We were fresh and taking hours in, hours out, and when I was out I was studying and I knew what to do coming in, so that was our biggest advantage.”

Final table results

  • 1st – Patrick Leonard/Espen Jørstad – $148,067
  • 2nd – Jamie Kerstetter/Corey Paggeot – $91,513
  • 3rd – Yutaro Tsugaru/Taichi Ichikawa – $65,059
  • 4th – Franco Spitale/Martin Pochat – $46,904
  • 5th – Mackenzie Kraemer/Jon Schiller – $34,299
