Andrew Yeh Wins WSOP $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. And $487,129

Event #44: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship was a star-studded event at the 2022 World Series of Poker. When it was all said and done, Andrew Yeh emerged victorious to win his first-ever WSOP gold bracelet and $487,129 in prize money.

Yeh topped a field of 209 players to win the event, finally getting his hands on a WSOP gold bracelet after many deep runs.

“I feel like I’m definitely capable of winning, but in these tournaments, especially $10Ks with all of the good players, it’s really tough to navigate a field,” Yeh said. “So to be able to do that and make it here again from last year and actually [get the win] is pretty surreal.”

Yeh’s reference to last year was in regards to his third-place finish in the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship at the 2021 WSOP. This trip to the final table resulted in not only another top-three finish for Yeh but a victory for hs first piece of WSOP hardware.

Yeh said his best game of the five H.O.R.S.E. games is Omaha hi-lo, and it just so happens that he was able to win this $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship in a round of Omaha hi-lo.

After three days of play, five players remained in Event #44; $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship. Three of the five were in line to win a second WSOP gold bracelet, whereas two of them, Andrew Yeh and Craig Chait, were looking for their first. The five players returned on Thursday to battle to a winner, and it was ultimately Yeh coming out on top.

The first player to bust on Day 4 was John Racener, a WSOP gold bracelet winner and former runner-up finisher in the WSOP Main Event. After Racener, another gold bracelet winner in Bryce Yockey was sent to the rail. Bracelet winner Philip Long busted next, paving the way for a brand new WSOP champion to enter the history books.

Yeh began heads-up play with about a 3-to-1 chip lead, but this match was far from over. Chait fought back and the two exchanged plenty of blows deep into the night as the clock passed midnight.

In the end, and after quite a swingy heads-up match, Yeh was able to close it out in a round of Omaha hi-lo. Chait was able to stay alive on a couple of Omaha hi-lo hands, but in the end Yeh got the best of it to win his first WSOP gold bracelet.
