Zack Wins Second Bracelet of the 2022 WSOP; $10,000 Stud Hi-Lo Championship ($324,174)
Table Of Contents
Just weeks after playing a seven hour heads up match to win his second WSOP bracelet, Daniel Zack, after a grueling eight-hour heads-up battle, won his third WSOP bracelet in Event #40: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship for $324,174 at Ballys and Paris in Las Vegas Nevada here at the 2022 World Series of Poker.
“I’m really happy, much happier and I feel more energetic than the last bracelet,” an elated Zack said. With this victory, Zack has put himself in first place on the WSOP Player of the Year standings. The poker pro has captured the third bracelet of his career and his second bracelet of this series, each coming in different formats.
Zack attributes much of his success and level-headedness in these long stretch heads-up matches to his long nights at cash games. “I’ve had a lot of marathon matches heads-up,” says Zack “You just learn through experience to take it one hand at a time and do your best.” He has been gunning for WSOP Player of the Year for the past few years, and with five cashes, three final tables, and two wins, he now leads the race this year.

Final Day Action
The day began at 3:00 p.m. local time with three players returning from the previous day's action. It took just under an hour for Ziya Rahim to exit the tournament in third place for $147,800. Rahim lost most of his chips when he ran into the full house of Zack, then was eliminated one hand later when he was all-in for his remaining ante and David Funkhouser made a straight to eliminate him.
Heads Up Play
What followed was a lengthy heads-up match, in which each player held the chip lead for significant periods of time.
Initially, it was Funkhouser holding a large chip lead over his opponent and heads-up play began with hands going his way, with Funkhouser making a wheel and leaving Zack with a deficit of nearly seven-to-one. After the first break however, Zack found himself with a little more momentum on his side as he made a full house to even out stacks and then shortly after, his pair of queens were good to take the chip lead.
The battle went into full force, with Zack’s chip lead fluctuating between two-to-one and nearly dead even in chips. Funkhouser would not go quietly into the night, however, as he fought and clawed back some pots to put him closer to Zack’s lead. It was a pot hours later in which Funkhouser had kings showing that Zack folded to a river bet, that put Funkhouser in the slight lead.
After which, the momentum had shifted in Funkhouser’s direction as after a few key pots, including one where he showed a set of threes, Funkhouser had created a three-to-one chip lead over Zack. Eventually, the chips were all in the middle with Zack holding a pair of kings against the pair of nines for Funkhouser. Seventh street further improved Zack to queens-up and left Funkhouser with no improvement and Zack found himself a few hands later in the chip lead once more.
Within about 20 minutes, Funkhouser was down more than seven-to-one, but one massive seventh street to chop and survive, and one double saw he and Zack even once more. Later in the night, Funkhouser pulled ahead again, but shortly afterward he would lose a massive pot to Zack when Funkhouser’s open kings ran into an eight-high straight of Zack and he would be left with just over one big bet. It was shortly after that they got it all in for Funkhouser’s remaining chips. Aces and twos for Zack would be the winning hand that bested Funkhouser’s aces and Funkhouser ended the tournament in second for $200,365.
Congratulations to Daniel Zack for winning his third WSOP bracelet in Event #40: $10,000 Championship Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship for $324,174.
