The very first high roller poker tournament of 2022 is officially in the books.
The $10,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em event was held at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas on Jan. 5. A total of 34 entries were made, building a prize pool of $340,000. After more than 14 hours of high-stakes action, Punnat Punsri came away with the title and the first-place prize of $118,037.
This was the largest ever score recorded by the Thai player, who made his high roller debut with a trio of final-table finishes during the Five Diamond World Poker Classic in December of 2021. Punsri now has $428,685 in career live earnings to his name along with three recorded titles. His largest previous payday as a champion came when he took down a 2019 APT Korea Seoul event for $51,179.
