Steve Albini WSOP 2022

A handful of gold bracelets were awarded over the weekend at the 2022 WSOP including one that is more known for his music chops than at the poker table.

Steve Albini, the prolific music producer who helped craft albums from bands such as Nirvana, Pixies and the Breeders, took down the $1,500 HORSE on Friday night to win $196,089 and his second gold bracelet. To win the bracelet, Albini outlasted 773 players over three days to secure the win. Albini’s previous victory came during the 2018 Seven Card Stud event.

Although he has two bracelets to his name, Albini said he still considers poker as a hobby, in comments he made after the match.

“So when I’m playing poker, I try to commit to it. I try to take it seriously. I try to make sure I devote the attention to it that it deserves as an occupation. But it’s only part of my year. I only play tournaments at the World Series of Poker. I play cash games informally in Chicago. It’s a part of my livelihood, but it’s not my profession.”
