2022 WSOP Day 47: Jorstad Crowned Main Event Champion as 2022 WSOP Nears End

Espen Jorstad

The 2022 World Series of Poker Main Event reached its crescendo inside Bally's & Paris, Las Vegas on Day 47, with Norway's Espen Jorstad being the latest player to claim victory in poker's most famous tournament.

He captured the $10,000,000 first-place prize as well as his second WSOP bracelet of the summer. The boost to Jorstad's bankroll sees him shoot to the top of the Norwegian all-time money list. Jorstad also added his name to the list of players who have won the Main Event as well as another bracelet event in the same series. The last player to achieve the feat was Greg Merson, who won the 2012 WSOP Main Event and the 2012 WSOP $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em 6-Handed Championship.

Adrian Attenborough was Jorstad's heads-up opponent and took home $6,000,000 for his runners-up finish while Michael Duek achieved a career's best $4,000,000 payday after being eliminated in third-place.

Fred Li

The [Online] $777 Lucky 7's No-Limit Hold'em event was the second event of the day that played down to a winner, with Fred "staeks" Li emerging as the winner. Li achieved the triumph on WSOP.com and outlasted to the 781-entry field.

As well as the WSOP bracelet, Li pocketed $159,060 of the $854,700 prize pool.

Other notables who took to the virtual felt included WSOP bracelet winner Dominick "flow_cold" Sarle, Jason "TheBigGift" Gooch and four-time winner David "dpeters17" Peters.

Zach "zoks7" Okin was the player to fall short in heads up play after his pocket eights were unable to hold against Li's ace-ten. None the less, the $98,290 he won should provide some comfort.
