Justin Pechie won the $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Freezeout at the 2022 World Series of Poker on Saturday, picking up his second WSOP gold bracelet and $364,899 in prize money.
Justin Pechie’s first WSOP bracelet came in 2011, and with this glamorou viictory eleven years later, he has finally passed $1,000,000 in WSOP earnings.
“I came in and I said I’m just going to play like I know how to play. And it worked.”
Pechie faced at the final table two-time WSOP bracelet winner Steve Zolotow, and three Frenchman that provided some rowdiness once Pechie went heads-up against Samuel Bifarella.
Justin Pechie said after his victory:
“I think it evens the playing field out and it makes the competition more fair. When you get down to the final two tables, you have a different amount of skill then when you get down to [the final two tables] if it’s a reentry. I’ve never really adjusted what I do with the amount of money I have,” Pechie said on if his WSOP plans will be changing now that he padded his bankroll with $364,899 in prize money. “I always just try to find what I think is the best thing. I’m not going to play high rollers. I feel like I’m good against average competition. I’m not a high roller and I don’t plan on being one. I’m just going to keep doing what I do and put it in the bank.”
