Poker News: Bradley Anderson Wins WSOP Mixed Omaha 8-or-Better Event, Quincy Borland Wins Million Dollar Bounty Event

WSOP Bracelet

The World Series of Poker continues to dominate the news as every day, more and more five, six, or seven-figure winners emerge. We’ve got three big ones from this past week, so let’s take a look at who won bracelets.

Anderson Wins 2022 World Series Of Poker Bracelet

Nobody was able to stop Bradley Anderson during the 2022 World Series of Poker $1,500 buy-in mixed Omaha eight-or-better event. Anderson marched through a large field of 771 entries in order to come away with the largest chunk of the prize pool and a gold bracelet to his name. The prize he earned was $195,565 for taking down Scott Abrams heads-up.

For Anderson, this was a monumental moment for him. It was the second-largest score of his career and pushed him up the earnings list to $630,000. The only score better than this came back in 2014 when he was the fifth-place finisher during the Millionaire Maker event. That placement saw him net $355,913.

When he was asked about the big win after it was all over, he said, “It is definitely surreal. Today was a tough grind. I had a big chip lead going into heads-up, and Scott chipped away at me, but I weathered the storm.” Abrams himself was able to come away with the second largest prize, earning $120,881.

Borland Wins World Series Of Poker Million Dollar Bounty Bracelet

One of the most popular events at the WSOP has come to a head. The $1,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em Million Dollar Bounty event was able to draw in a whopping 14,112 entries. With all of these competitors, the final prize pool for the event grew to an unbelievable $12,559,680. $4 million of that money was directed towards the bounties.

With all of that being said, Quincy Borland wound up emerging as the winner here. Borland was the only player left standing to acquire a gold bracelet along with a prize of $750,120. For Borland, this was certainly the biggest cash out of his career so far. Although, he wasn’t the top earner in the event. That title actually goes to Matt Glantz.

Glantz drew the $1,000,000 bounty on top of the $20,730 he earned for finishing in 40th place. This helped him grow his career tournament earnings to just under $7.5 million.

Sik Eum Secures First Gold Bracelet

Young Sik Eum has endured some brutal losses before getting to this point in his career. Just a month ago, Eum fell one elimination short of obtaining his first ever World Series of Poker bracelet. Now, Eum has turned it around by emerging victorious in the WSOP $1,000 mini-main event. He had to take down a large field of 5,832 entries in order to come away with the top prize of $594,189.

Eum just grew his career earnings total to $1.3 million with this recent win. Not to mention that he just added 2,320 Card Player Player of the Year points to his name. These points already help him move into 32nd place in the 2022 POY Race.

Other notable finishers from this recent event were Cosmin Joldis and Kartik Ved. Joldis was the runner-up in the competition, walking away with $367,233. Then Ved rounded out the top three with a cash out of $275,593.
