Emil Bise Wins 2022 World Series of Poker Europe Short Deck Event For Second Career Bracelet

The Swiss Player Defeated A Field of 91 Entries In The €2,200 Buy-In Tournament To Earn $49,521


The only short deck bracelet event of the 2022 World Series of Poker Europe sported a €2,200 buy-in. A total of 91 entries were made by the time registration closed, resulting in a prize pool of $172,900. After two days of action, Emil Bise walked away with the title and the top payout of $49,521.

“I put my heart into WSOP every year, it’s very special to me and I’m so happy,” Bise told WSOP reporters.

This was the second career bracelet for Bise, making him the first-ever Swiss player to win multiple wins in WSOP bracelet events. Bise earned his first last year after outlasting 1,397 entries in the €1,350 buy-in no-limit hold’em ‘mini main event’ tournament. The only other players from Switzerland to secure bracelets are Besim Hot and Guillaume Humbert.

Bise now has more than $837,000 in recorded live tournament earnings to his name. His win in this event was his third-largest score, behind his first bracelet win for $282,698 and a victory in 2018 WSOP International Circuit main event at this same venue for another $213,500.

As the champion of this event, Bise was also awarded 216 Card Player Player of the Year points. This was his eighth POY-qualified final-table finish of the year. With 1,113 total points, he now sits inside the top 400 in the 2022 POY race standings presented by Global Poker.

Bise came into the final day in ninth chip position with 14 players remaining, all of them having made the money. Notables that ran deep included 2014 WSOP main event third-place finisher Jorryt van Hoof (14th), bracelet winner Danny Tang (9th), recent €550 pot-limit Omaha bracelet winner Helmut Phung (4th), and Brazilian poker pro Felipe Ramos (3rd).

This was Ramos’ third top-three finish a bracelet event, with a previous third-place showing in a $1,000 PLO event at the 2018 WSOP in Las Vegas and a runner-up finish in a 2021 WSOP Online $1,000 buy-in event. He now has more than $3.1 million in recorded earnings after being awarded $21,416 for his deep run in this event.

Here is a look at the payouts and POY points awarded at the final table:

Place Player Earnings POY Points
1 Emil Bise $49,521 216
