2022 WSOP Day 16: The Busiest Day Yet For Bracelets as Four Awarded

2022 WSOP Bracelet

There was a lot of gold dished out on Day 16 of the 2022 World Series of Poker at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas with no fewer than four players taking down their respective events and capturing a coveted gold bracelet, in addition to a bankroll-boosting some of cash.

Jonathan Cohen was the first of the bracelet-winning quartet to secure his bracelet. Cohen defeated Kyle Dilschneider in Event #26: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship after a long, drawn-out heads-up battle. This event was scheduled to crown its champion on Day 15, but the heads-up duo opted to pause the tournament and have some much-needed rest. The rest did Cohen the world of good, and he emerged victoriously after another 4.5 hours of one-on-one action.

The second bracelet of the day went to Michael Simhai, who gets to call himself the Event #27: $1,500 Shootout No-Limit Hold'em champion. Simhai received his first piece of poker gold, $240,480 in prize money, and bragging rights among his peers. The Californian came out on top of a tough final table that housed the likes of Ravi Raghavan and Kevin Song.

Robert Cowen reeled in his second WSOP bracelet in as many years when he triumphed in Event #28: $50,000 Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller. The lover of four hole cards won his first bracelet in 2021 in a $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha event, but this latest victory was extra special, not least because the popular grinder walked away with $1,393,816 in addition to bracelet number two.

Last but not least in the bracelet-winning stakes is Maxx Coleman. The Kansas native outlasted 436 opponents in Event #29: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em 2-7 Lowball Draw for his long-awaited bracelet victory. Coleman had finished in the money in 57 WSOP events before this victory, and had helped himself to a pair of WSOP Circuit rings. He now has a gold bracelet to keep those rings company.
