After 6 starting flights and 10 hours of play on Day 2, Ronald Campillo emerged victorious to win the 2022 Everglades Poker Open Main Event for $50,000. Other room regulars including Elias Nassif, Robert Kessler, and Damien Simon scored big in the six handed deal. Ronald came into Day 2 with 141,000 and ran hot early in the day riding that momentum all the way to the final table. After Ronald eliminated Donald Maloney and David Nathaniel, the final 6 players quickly negotiated an ICM deal to secure their five figure paydays.
