Three new WSOP bracelet winners were crowned on Wednesday as the 2022 WSOP enters its third week of play.

The biggest feat of the day was undoubtedly Robert Cowen’s victory in the $50,000 High Roller Pot Limit Omaha when he won the event for the second straight year.

Cowen won the event on Wednesday over the course of three days and against a field of 106 opponents to secure the victory, his second career bracelet and a $1,393,816 first-place prize. Joining Cowen at the final table were some big names that each won six-figure prizes:

  • 1st – Robert Cowen – $1,393,816
  • 2nd – Dash Dudley – $861,442
  • 3rd – Ben Lamb – $622,861
  • 4th – Veselin Karakitukov – $458,016
  • 5th – Jared Bleznick – $342,626
  • 6th – Jason Mercier – $260,819
  • 7th – Aaron Katz – $202,103
  • 8th – Scott Seiver – $159,464

Although Cowen’s PLO skills are undeniable, he did say in post-match comments that luck was also on his side.

“I ran pretty good on that final table, I had a lot of good cards. Earlier on when we were deep enough, I could just fold and it wasn’t too critical to win pots. But when we got three-handed, I was picking up big cards. The blinds were so big up to that point and every pot was critical and it was just nice to get heat at the right time.”

Jonathan Cohen wins $10k Limit Hold’em Championship

Jonathan Cohen took home his first bracelet after winning the $10,000 Limit Hold’em Championship on Wednesday night. Cohen outlasted a field of 92 entries over four days including Kyle Dilschneider in a back and forth heads-up battle that lasted 7 hours.

In addition to his first bracelet, Cohen won a $245,678 first place price. Other big winners included Matthew Schreiber ($107,978), Matthew Gonzales ($78,435), Joey Couden ($58,226) and Chad Eveslage ($44,194).

Michael Simhai wins first gold bracelet in $1,500 Shootout No Limit Hold’em

California’s Michael Simhai is the winner of the $1,500 Shootout No Limit Hold’em final table after three days of play. In his path to victory, Simhai had to win three 10-man tables in as many days to clinch the victory, securing his first WSOP bracelet as well as a $240,480 first-place prize.

At the final table, Simhai outlasted nine other players including David Dowdy heads-up ($146,618). Before that, Anant Patel ($111,226) and Ravi Raghavan ($84,047) finished 3rd and 4th, respectively.
