Josh Reichard Wins WPT Poker Showdown Championship for $839,300

2024 Poker Showdown
Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
Hollywood, Florida

$3,500 WPT Poker Showdown Championship
$3,000,000 Guaranteed
Entries:  1,869
Prize Pool:  $5,980,800
April 19 – May 29, 2024

Josh Reichard, WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Champion (WPT)

The WPT Poker Showdown Championship is historically one of the biggest games in our history, setting records and drawing players from around the world, and this year was no different. The tournament attracted 1,869 entries to the $3,500 buy-in tournament and Josh Reichard was the last player standing, taking the top spot along with $839,300.

“It’s more than double my career high score,” Reichard told WPT reporters after his win. “All my titles [to][this][point] are minor league titles. This is a major league title. It feels great to finally break through and have a win of this magnitude.”

The tournament nearly doubled the $3,000,000 and featured a prize pool worth $5,980,800. The tournament played down over several days until six players were still in contention and they traveled to Las Vegas to play for the title in front of the WPT cameras.

Reichard conquered a tough final table to take the top spot along with a seat in the WPT World Championship. He joined an impressive list of Poker Showdown Champions and we look forward to seeing him back in South Florida to celebrate.

1st: Josh Reichard – $839,300*
2nd: Landon Tice – $550,000
3rd: Jesse Lonis – $410,000
4th: Alex Queen – $305,000
5th: Dylan Smith – $230,000
6th: Aaron Kupin – $176,000

* First-prize amount includes the winner’s $10,400 entry into the season-ending WPT World Championship in Las Vegas.

Johnny Bromberg, 2024 DSPS Deepest Stack Champ

The $1,700 Deepest Stack tournament headlined the Deep Stack Poker Series with three flights and a $300,000 guaranteed prize pool. It drew a ton of talent and local Johnny Bromberg took the top spot outright for $98,100 in front of a crowd of friends.

The tournament drew 303 entries to create a prize pool worth $454,500 and the last 38 players made the money. They got there a few hours into Day 2 and worked their way down to the final table with deep stacks and a slow structure.

Six players returned for the final table on the final day and Bromberg defeated Chris Bissinger heads-up after a back-and-forth battle. He earned the top prize, the DSPS trophy, and a good time with his friends on the rail.

Bromberg now owns trophies from SHRPO, Poker Showdown, the Everglades Poker Open, and Deep Stack Poker Series.

Congrats!
