Sepiol Wins 2023 WPT World Championship

Dan Sepiol conquers the 2023 WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas, taking his place at the World Poker Tour Champions Club and earning $5,282,954 in prize money.

“The big turning point was Chewy vs. Jax vs. Ace King,” Sepiol said after the win. “Luckier than anyone else. That was my strategy. Yeah. Good luck picking my spot.”

The $10,400 buy-in tournament was enriched with an ambitious $40 million guarantee. When registration closed, the field remained on 3,835 entries, leaving a $2,417,000 overlay. That amount was added to the prize pool to complete the $40 million commitment, and cash was ultimately awarded to the top 480 finalists. 무료슬롯사이트

“The real hope for the second year of the WPT World Championship was to improve last year’s success. With the help of player feedback, we feel like we accomplished our goals together,” said Adam Pliska, WPT CEO. “Thank you to all the players, qualifiers, fans, dealers, and Wynn employees. On behalf of the WPT, I would like to congratulate Dan on his incredible work and his new position at the Mike Sexton WPT Champions Cup.”

Each player in the final table left with a seven-figure salary. Georgios Sotirofoulos finished second, earning $4.167,246 after trading with Sepiol during the head-up action, while Andrew Lichtenberger finished third with $2.798,700, WPT champion Chris Muman fourth with $2.095,300, Ben Heath fifth with $1.583,100, and Artur Martirosian sixth with $1.207 million.

The 2nd WPT World Championship featured many celebrities, including Kristen Foxen (33rd), two-time WPT champion Alex Foxen (39th), TV personality Love Princess (40th), WPT ambassador Brad Owen (88th), former poker main event champion Joe Kada (108th), Hossein Nsan (144th), WPT champion Chance Cornus (137th), 2022 WPT World Championship champion Elliot Houdon (186th), and WPT anchor Lynn Gilmartin (454th) to secure the prize money.

Due to the significant increase in field size, the WPT World Championship set the WPT record for the most participation in championship events, along with the biggest prize money of $40 million in WPT history. The last table was filmed for television in Wynn Las Vegas and will air on Bali Sports in 2024.

The 2023 Championship Tour will begin from January 17 to 30 with the WPT Cambodia Festival at the Nagarwold Integrated Resort.
