Daniel Weinman Wins First Bracelet In 2022 World Series of Poker $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Event

The Two-Time World Poker Tour Champion Defeated A Field of 1,891 Entries To Win $255,359


Daniel Weinman already had two World Poker Tour main event titles and World Series of Poker Circuit main event gold ring to his name coming into the 2022 WSOP. What he did not yet have was a bracelet. He came close to winning his first during the first few days of the series but ultimately finished as the runner-up in the $1,500 stud event to fall just short of securing the gold. Just ten days after that second-place showing, Weinman made it back to heads-up play with the bracelet in the balance. This time around, he emerged victorious with the title, the hardware, and $255,359 in prize money.

Weinman’s breakthrough WSOP victory came in the $1,000 buy-in eixght-max pot-limit Omaha event. He outlasted a field of 1,891 entries in the event, securing the fourth-largest payday of his career as the champion. The 34-year-old poker pro now has nearly $3.4 million in career tournament earnings to his name.

Plenty of big names made deep runs inside the money in this tournaments, only to fall short of the final day, including bracelet winner Dylan Weisman (36th – $6,585), bracelet winner James Dempsey (30th – $7,925), bracelet winner Cole Ferraro (19th – $9,636), 14-time WSOPC ring winner Maurice Hawkins (12th – $14,683), and bracelet winner Ryan Laplante ($11th – $18,396).

Just ten players moved on to day 3, with Weinman in the lead but plenty of thought competition between him and the title, including 2008 WSOP main event seventh-place finisher Chino Rheem. The three-time WPT champion and 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure main event winner scored the first knockout of the day, busting Lautaro Guerra (10th – $18,396) to move within reach of the top spot.

Weinman then eliminated Oliver Weis in ninth place ($23,277) to set the official final table of eight. It took less than 20 minutes for the first knockout of the final table. Ruslan Dykshteyn got all-in with pocket aces facing the pocket kings and pocket fives of Germandio Andoni. Dykshteyn had a king as one of his side cards, but the case king hit the board to give Andoni the lead. He made a full house on the turn and held from there to narrow the field to seven. Dykshteyn earned $29,739 as the eighth-place finisher.

Bracelet winner Stephen Song was the next to hit the rail. He got all-in with AClub SuitJClub Suit4Heart Suit on a 10Club Suit9Heart Suit7Spade Suit flop. Weinman held KSpade SuitQHeart SuitJHeart Suit2Diamond Suit. The 2Club Suit turn gave Weinman a pair of deuces to go with his wrap, while Song added aflush draw to his straight draw. The 5Diamond Suit river was an utter brick. Weinman’s pair of deuces were enough to secure the pot and eliminate Song in seventh place ($38,363).

Chino RheemRheem pulled into the lead during six-handed play. He then extended his advantage when his double-suited pocket eights with an ace beat the double-suited A-K-9-4 of Ferenc Deak. The board largely danced around both players’ hands and Rheem’s pair of eights were ultimately enough to win the pot. Deak took home $49,962 for his sixth-place showing.

Rheem lost an all-in against Jamey Hendrickson and then a few more pots to slide to the bottom of the chip counts. He ultimately got the last of his stack in with KClub SuitKHeart SuitQClub Suit2Diamond Suit facing the AClub SuitADiamond SuitQDiamond Suit9Spade Suit of a surging Hendrickson. The board brought diamonds to give Hendrickson the ace-high flush for the win, and Rheem was knocked out in fifth place. The $65,685 he earned in this event increased his lifetime live earnings to more than $12.1 million.

Weinman won a pot off of Andoni during four-handed play that helped put him within reach of the lead. Andoni then got the last of his stack in with top pair, the nut flush draw, and a double gutshot straight draw. Weinman had bottom pair on the flop, but improved to two pair on the turn to move ahead. The river was a brick and Andoni settled for $87,167 as the fourth-place finisher.

Jayme HendriksonEduardo Bernal Sanchez to take the lead. The chips went in on a 6Club Suit4Diamond Suit2Diamond Suit flop with Sanchez holding KDiamond SuitKHeart SuitQHeart Suit9Diamond Suit. Weinman had 7Spade Suit5Diamond Suit4Spade Suit3Spade Suit for a six-high straight. The JSpade Suit turn and JClub Suit river changed nothing and Sanchez was eliminated in third place ($116,751).

Weinman took 23,500,000 into heads-up play with Hendrickson, who held 13,800,000. It took just three hands for him to convert his lead into the win. The pair saw a 10Spade Suit6Diamond Suit2Heart Suit flop after a limp and a check preflop. After a bet and a series of raised, Hendrickson ended up all-in with 9Club Suit8Heart Suit7Heart Suit4Spade Suit for a big wrap draw. Weinman held AClub Suit10Diamond Suit2Spade Suit for top and bottom pair. The 3Spade Suit on the turn gave Hendrickson some extra straight outs heading into the river. The 6Spade Suit was of no help to Hendrickson, though, and his run in this event came to an end in second place ($157,819).
