World Series of Poker 2022 Results


This year’s WSOP tournament results were pretty disappointing. I felt like I played well enough to have better results, but tournament poker is such a high-variance pursuit, and I was just on the wrong side of the probability distributions this year. Still, for the benefit of those of you who bought a piece of my WSOP tournament action, here are the final numbers.

Tim’s 2022 WSOP Results vs. Planned Budget

So for the full $40,000 package, this means there is a buy-in rebate of $22,489 plus a cash out of $2436, for a total payout of $24,925. In other words, everyone who bought a piece of the package gets back 62.3125 percent of their buy-in. As of this writing (15 July, 2022), everyone has been paid out.

Fortunately, the live cash games in Las Vegas were much more profitable for me (as usual). I played several sessions of 2/5 NLH, some 1-2-5 and 5-5 PLO, and even a couple sessions of 5-10-20 NLH in the famous Kings Lounge. Among all those, I only had two losing sessions, and only one of those was for a significant amount. Bottom line–my cash game winnings more than offset my tournament losses, so it was a moderately successful trip overall from a personal financial point of view. Hopefully next time I can spin up some better tournament results and share a bit of that success with everyone.

I’ll probably look for a few more tournament series to play throughout the year. Let me know below if there are any specific ones you’d recommend!
