David Jackson After three full days of play, David Jackson was crowned the winner of the 2022 World Series of Poker Event #65: $3,000 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em inside Bally’s and Paris, Las Vegas .

The now two-time WSOP bracelet winner beat Phil Hellmuth in heads-up play to secure the $598,173 first-place prize. Hellmuth, who was closing to extending his bracelet collection to 17, walked away with a $369,698 payday. Jackson earned his first WSOP bracelet after taking down Event #25: $777 LUCKY SEVENS as part of the 2021 GGPoker WSOP Online Bracelet Events . Jackson made it through a field of 2,014 entries to win the bracelet and $194,178.

The $3,000 Freezeout attracted 1,359 entries which generated a $3,628,530 prize pool . The likes of Daniel Negreanu , Maria Ho and Justin Bonomo all contributed to the prize kitty but found themselves on the wrong side of the rail after being despatched on Day 1.

Notables who fell on Day 2 included reigning WSOP Main Event champion Koray Aldemir and 2019 Main Event winner Hossein Ensan . The polarising Martin Kabrhel also bowed out at this stage.

Day 3 began with 26 players remaining, and that rapidly became ten. Julien Martini aces were cracked by Hellmuth in the early goings, which helped propel Hellmuth into a deeper run. Event #65: $3,000 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em Final Table Results
