The 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event #83: $50,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold’em was full of big names playing for big money and the storied gold bracelet. At the end of two days and a gruelling final table battle, there could be only one winner: Portugal’s João Vieira.
Vieira outlasted a field of 107 entries and needed to come from behind multiple times to win his second bracelet and a career-high score of $1,384,415. Vieira’s previous best score was back in July 2019, when he took down $758,011, winning his first bracelet in Event #70: $5,000 No Limit Hold’em – 6-Handed.
Amazingly, this was Vieira’s 15th cash at the 2022 World Series and his 79th career WSOP cash. It was also Vieira’s 11th-career WSOP final table, having reached the final table four times in 2021.
“This one was a little bit more enjoyable (than in 2019). The first one was more like getting the monkey off my back. I had already done a lot of stuff online, very accomplished, but I still needed the big one. So this kinda takes my name off the list of guys that didn’t have it.
