The 2022 World Series of Poker Online has paid more than $86.1 million in prizes through its 33 bracelet events on the GGPoker platform. Recently, 4,984 participants across nine starting flights created the largest prize pool of $23,674,000 in the WSOPO $5,000 buy-in no-limit hold ’em Main Event.

Simon Mattson from Sweden made his way to the top and received his first WSOP Gold Bracelet plus the cash prize of $2,793,574. The 29-year-old increased his recorded tournament earnings to more than $4.4 million. Mattsson’s online payouts are around $27 million under the user name of ‘C. Darwin2’.

The top 500 participants shared the prize pool, including some big names making a deep run. Bracelet Winner Joseph Cheong fell just short of the final table and finished in eleventh place, while Patrick Leonard’s play ended in 27th place. Three-time bracelet winner Justin Bonomo was eliminated in 64th place, while WSOP Main Event Winner Damian Salas reached 96th position.


Final Table Eliminations

The final table eliminations started with Tim Rutherford, who lost to Feng Zhao. The Canadian player’s A-Q was dominated by the Pocket Kings of Zhao, and he had no chance of returning to the game. Rutherford received $279,357 for his ninth-place finish.

Next in the elimination line was Oliver Sprason from the United Kingdom. Sprason’s A-K lost a flip to the pocket tens of Kannapong Thanarattrakul, resulting in his elimination in eighth place. Sprason cashed $372,529 for his efforts.

Jordan Spurlin was the next player to hit the rail. He left the table in seventh place when his A-7 was not enough against the A-9 of Thanarattrakul. Spurlin returned home with a $496,774 cash prize. Yanfei Chi moved all-in with Pocket Queens, but a jack-high flop favored Zhao. Chi picked a blank on the river, which decided his fate in sixth place for $662,459.

Istvan Briski’s K-8 suit ran into the pocket aces of Zhao, eliminating him in fifth place for $883,404. A few moments later, Samuel Vousden lost to Thanarattrakul when the latter made a nut flush to eliminate Vousden. He cashed $1,178,040 as a fourth-place finisher.

Next, Feng Zhao called with K (Diamonds) and 8 (Hearts) against Mattsson’s overbet for the pot on the river. The board showed Q (Diamonds), J (Hearts), 9 (Spades), K (Clubs), and Q (Clubs). Later, Zhao moved all in with J-9, and Mattsson called with A-3. Mattsson received the Ace high advantage, eliminating Zhao in third place for $1,570,941.


The Heads-up Play

Mattsson entered the heads-up play with an almost 3:2 advantage over Thanarattrakul. Simon Mattsson limped with 6 (Clubs) and 5 (Clubs) while Thanarattrakul raised with his J (Clubs) and 10 (Clubs). In the next move, Mattsson called, and the flop showed 10 (Spades), 7 (Clubs), and 4 (Hearts). Finally, Mattsson locked the pot when the 7 (Hearts) on the river matched the board.
