On Friday night in Las Vegas, it was high-stakes poker pro Scott Seiver who ended up taking down the 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event #3: $2,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em after beating Alexander Farahi heads up. Seiver added a fourth WSOP bracelet to his illustrious resume, and also $320,059 to his already over $24 million dollars in lifetime earnings.
The tournament began with 752 entrants creating a prize pool of $1,673,000, which was divided up between the top 113 players. The field was whittled down to the final 10 on Thursday, and the unofficial final table played out in just over seven hours. With the victory, Seiver became the second player this summer, along with David Peters, to capture their fourth career gold bracelet.
“I’ve wanted another no-limit bracelet for a long time,” said Seiver, referring to his other no-limit hold’em bracelet won in 2008, “the fields are so tough, everyone is so good at hold’em, and they are so large, so while I never thought I was due, it was something I really wanted for a while.”
