Asher Conniff is an American poker player. In 2022, he made it to the final table of the World Series of Poker Main Event.
Conniff took down the WPT World Championship for $937,683 in 2015, following it up with a WSOP Circuit ring four years later.
The 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event final table kicks off Friday with 10 remaining players, one of whom is talented poker pro Asher Conniff from New York.
Conniff is arguably the most accomplished player at the final table, but he will enter play with just 20 big blinds (24,400,000). Philippe Souki, with a stack of 13,500,000, is the only other player with a smaller stack. Matthew Su and Espen Jorstad are tied for the lead with 83,200,000 chips each.
"I have my mom, my dad, and my sister flying out now and about nine or ten friends from New York flying out and then hopefully quite a few local players or players who are here for the series as well," he said.
One friend likely to be on the rail is poker pro Chris Moorman. As Conniff explained: "There are a lot of poker players that inspire me for sure. Recently, my buddy Chris Moorman for sure has definitely been an inspiration. He's just always kind of there with the right words when I need them. He's just been through everything and won everything and done everything, so he's definitely a big help."
