Read about everything that transpired on Day 4 of the 2022 WSOP in its new home at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas.
Seiver Makes it Four, Wins First NLHE Bracelet Since 2008
Scott Seiver was the second one to join the four-time bracelet club this year after David Peters did so yesterday.
A star-studded final table returned for the final table of Event #3: $2,500 Freezeout in the hunt for WSOP glory and of course the $320,059 first-place prize. Seiver topped the leaderboard when the dust settled after leaving Aditya Agarwal, Chris Hunichen, Nick Schulman, and Sergio Aido behind him.
Brad Ruben Wins Fourth Bracelet For a Higher Cause
Brad Ruben made an impressive run to WSOP fame over the past 2 years. He only won his first bracelet in August 2020, but he just joined Seiver and Peters winning an impressive fourth bracelet after beating defending champion Jaswinder Lilly in Event #4: $1,500 Dealer's Choice.
This time around, however, it wasn't about the money, the bracelet, or WSOP glory. Ruben was competing for a higher cause.
Ruben proudly wore the shirt of a charitable organization named Shields & Stripes, an organization aiming to help veterans. Even after defeating defending champion Lally to win his fourth WSOP bracelet, Ruben’s focus was still on those the charity supports.
“This one is very, very special. I kind of feel like this one is a little bigger than me,” Ruben said following his victory. “I wore this shirt. It’s a charity called Shields & Stripes. They help vets. They help first responders and police officers who have injuries that aren’t really seen. I honestly feel like this is bigger than me. I’m very proud to be representing them this World Series. June is PTSD awareness month so it’s the perfect time to shine some light on such an amazing organization that helps those isolated and in pain so they don’t get left behind and can return to being heroes of their communities. I also hope to inspire other poker players to donate a portion of their winnings to a charitable cause.”

Smith, Sammartino, Rabichow, and Vogelsang to Battle for Maiden Bracelet in $25,000 Heads-Up Championship
Only four players out of 64 remain in Event #6: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship. Dan Smith will be facing Italian pro Dario Sammartino, while Kevin Rabichow will be pitted against German pro Christoph Vogelsang on the other side of the bracket. The winner of each contest will play heads-up in the final match for the bracelet and $509,717 top prize.
Although eyes are on the lion's share portion of the $1,512,000 prize pool, each player has secured at least $193,537, with a prize of $315,029 going to the eventual runner-up. A maiden bracelet will soon be won, as all of the remaining contenders have yet to secure a piece of the coveted gold hardware, despite countless impressive results from each of the quartet.
The other four players that made it into the money are Sean Winter, Jonathan Jaffe, Dylan DeStefano, and three-time bracelet winner Chance Kornuth. They all took home $75,045.
