Joshua Reichard Wins 15th World Series of Poker Circuit Gold Ring

Wisconsin Native Now Tied With Maurice Hawkins For Second On The All-Time WSOPC Titles Leaderboard


Joshua Reichard is now tied with Maurice Hawkins for second place on the World Series of Poker Circuit all-time titles leaderboard. The 32-year-old poker pro from Janesville, Wisconsin secured his 15th WSOPC ring by taking down a $400 buy-in no-limit hold’em event on Saturday, Nov. 18 at the WSOPC Grand Victoria Casino stop in Elgin, Illinois. He now sits just one win away from entering a tie for first place alongside 16-time ring winner Ari Engel.

“All of these guys are great,” Reichard told reporters when asked about his competition near the top of the WSOPC rings race standings. “They play a lot, winning at a high rate. The number is gonna be big. It would not surprise me if the number is 20 rings by the end of next year. And I don’t expect myself to be there, if I am that would be great, but it’ll be tough.”

Reichard secured his first ring back in 2013. He managed to add at least one per year from then through 2019. After a gap of a few years in the early 2020s, Reichard got back to his winning ways in 2022, taking down a main event title in Council Bluffs, Iowa. This spring he also emerged victorious in the main event at an earlier series held at Grand Victoria Casino, earning $253,073 as the champion.

His latest win for his second ring of 20223 saw him outlast a field of 271 entries. That turnout saw the prize pool grow to $89,430, which was paid out among the top 41 finishers.

In the end, it came down to a battle between Reichard and Kathy Pink. Reichard came out on top, earning $19,786 as the champion. Pink took home $12,228 as the runner-up.

In addition to the money and the hardware, Reichard was also awarded 173 Card Player Player of the Year points for the win. This was his third overall title and eighth final-table finish of the year. With 3,527 total points and more than $804,000 in to-date POY earnings, Reichard has climbed to 56th place in the 2023 POY standings presented by Global Poker.

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