With 65 gold bracelet events in the books, more than $179.3 million in prize money has been awarded so far at the 2023 World Series of Poker. Below, we take a look at three events that wrapped up recently at the 54th annual WSOP.

Ryan EriquezzoRyan ‘GoFeltaFish2’ Eriquezzo took down the latest WSOP Online event for players located in Nevada and New Jersey, topping a field of 1,810 total entries in the $400 no-limit hold’em ‘Ultra Deepstack’ tournament to earn $145,375.

This was the New Haven, Connecticut native’s third career bracelet victory. His first came back in 2012 when he took down the WSOP National Championship event fro $416,051. Seven years later, he came out on top in the 2019 WSOP Global Casino Championship to secure his second bracelet in an event that marked the culmination of the WSOP Circuit season.

Eriquezzo now has more than $2.6 million in recorded tournament earnings, with nearly $1 million of that coming from his 27 in-the-money finishes in bracelet events.

Plenty of big names ran deep in this event, including bracelet winner Michael ‘BrockLesnar’ Holtz (146th) two-time bracelet winner Ari ‘PalmTreeB’ Engel (106th), Maria Ho (62nd), Andrew ‘GudLife’ Moreno (32nd), two-time bracelet winner Lawrence ‘Lawbra12’ Brandt (15th), and Kevin ‘SpecialK333’ Calenzo (4th).
