Chad Eveslage secured a marquee first WSOP bracelet win with victory in Event #8: $25,000 High Roller.

Jake Schindler was also vying for his first bracelet but fell just short, as Eveslage scooped his maiden title along with $1,415,610 in prize money. This seven-figure score more than doubles his total WSOP winnings before today, and moves him above the $5,000,000 mark in total live earnings.

Other notable final tablists included defending WSOP Player of the Year Josh Arieh (3rd - $616,047) and 2021 WSOP Main Event winner Koray Aldemir (6th - $241,791)

Winner's Reaction

"I feel good," Eveslage told PokerNews. "It's nice to win. It's a lot of money after a tough tournament. The venue is great; it's definitely an upgrade from the Rio!"

Eveslage already has a number of WSOP mixed game final tables including H.O.R.S.E., Limit Hold'em and Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, but says he wasn't surprised to win his first bracelet in a No-Limit Hold'em event.

"I'm definitely better at No-Limit Hold'em tournaments than mixed tournaments. If I had to bet, mixed game tournament fields are smaller, but I'm a better No-Limit tournament player than a mixed tournament player."

Final Day Recap

Just 15 players returned for the final day, with Main Event champion Aldemir scooping an early double and sending Justin Young to the rail to lift himself off the bottom rung of the leaderboard.

Start-of-day chip leader Chris Brewer managed to hold on to his lead during the opening exchanges, and extended it further still with the elimination of Reagan Silber on the unofficial final table bubble.

Six of the final nine players were looking for their first WSOP bracelets, however Daniel Colpoys' dreams of WSOP glory would have to wait as he bust in ninth.

It's been three years since Ognyan Dimov scooped his first bracelet, but he would have to wait to add to his collection as he was sent packing by Eveslage. He was picking up momentum at the right moments, also sending Antonio Lievano to the rail as he moved up the chip counts.

The Pivotal Hand

Brewer still appeared in control at the top of the counts, until a key hand between him and Eveslage. The pair were top two in the counts at the time when Eveslage opened with {5-Spades}{5-Hearts} and Brewer defended his big blind with {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}. The flop gave Brewer top pair and Eveslage a set.

Brewer check-called all three streets on {k-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{7-Spades}{a-Diamonds} as Eveslage moved became the new chip leader

Eveslage's lead was large — triple the chips of the player second in chips — and it would grow with the elimination of Aldemir and Brek Schutten in a single hand.

Jake Schindler managed to cut the gap with the elimination of 2021 WSOP Player of the Year Josh Arieh in third, and started heads-up play only slightly outchipped.

Eveslage would edge the opening exchanges, before a rivered flush against the top pair of Schindler saw the gap widen considerably.

A double for Schindler did briefly raise the prospect of an elongated heads-up match, but Eveslage sealed the deal in a hand where both players made two pair. Schindler came off second best, and would have to settle for $874,915.
