David Perry Event #43: $500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em at the 2022 WSOP at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas attracted 4,786 entrants generating a prize pool of $2,010,120. On Tuesday, June 21st, 202 hopefuls returned for Day 2, all of them with one eye on the first place prize of $241,729 and the much sought-after WSOP gold bracelet that accompanied it.
After fast-paced play over the course of 12 hours, defense attorney David Perry emerged victorious, claiming his first gold bracelet after defeating British poker pro and online phenom Chris Moorman in heads-up play.
“Blessed, grateful,” a visibly emotional Perry said when asked how the win made him feel. “I’ve been in Vegas since 1985, came here with $612 and two suitcases; this is my community”, he continued.
When asked about how he plans to celebrate, Perry said that before anything, he has to “fly back [to Columbus, Ohio] and give a bracelet to my 94-year-old mother”. He does have some plans for the money though, saying that while normally he would fire a bullet in the $1,000 Seniors Event, he may choose instead to take his chances in the $10,000 Main Event, saying that while he could “never have rationalized or justified it in the past.” This win has given him the opportunity to throw his hat in the ring.

Action was fast paced throughout the day but no more so than at the start, with the field slashed to just three tables within five hours. Play then slowed down a little, with the final table set four hours later. Notables to come into the day but fall short of the final table included two-time bracelet winner Anson Tsang (118th – $1,976), Women in Poker Hall of Famer Maria Ho (115th – $1,976) and 2014 WSOP Event #8: $1,500 Millionaire Maker winner Jonathan Dimmig (11th – $17,741).
