Alex Yen
WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open Champion Alex Yen

Alex Yen limped for 500,000 with 9c7c, Anton Wigg raised to 2,000,000 with QdQc, and Yen called.

The flop came 10d8c6c, Wigg bet 4,500,000, and Yen thought for a while before he called.

The turn card paired the board with the 6d, Wigg moved all in with his pocket queens, and Yen snap-called with his flopped straight.

Wigg needed a queen or a six on the river to stay alive.

The river card was the 4d, and Yen won the pot — and the WPT title — with a ten-high straight.

Anton Wigg finished as the runner-up, earning $650,180.

Alex Yen won the 2022 WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open Championship, earning $975,240, a Lucky Hearts Poker Open Trophy, and a WPT Champions Cup. Yen’s name will also be engraved on the one-and-only WPT Champions Cup, along with all of the other WPT Champions in the tour’s history.

Congratulations to Alex Yen!
