After 15 hours of play it was poker dealer Ramsey Stovall who outlasted the field of 2,227, including defeating Timothy Heng heads up for $191,223 of the $1,313,930 prize pool in Event #41: $1,000 Super Bounty No-Limit Hold’em at the 2022 World Series of Poker at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas Nevada.
“It hasn’t quite sunk in,” an elated Stovall said, “I was supposed to work today, but my manager told me to ‘go get’ em’ and come in on your day off instead.” Stovall came into the final table as the second-largest stack and, after eliminating two players in one hand, knocked out four out of the five other players in the tournament. He went into heads up with a commanding lead and ended it in only five hands.
Stovall’s rail erupted into cheers as his pocket sevens held against Heng’s ace-five and swarmed around him in a giant group hug. “I couldn’t have asked for a better rail,” the newest bracelet winner mentioned with a rail of friends and family surrounding him.

Action Throughout The Day
The total 2,227 entrants that sat down throughout the day saw many players leaving empty handed including Ralph Massey, Tiffany Michelle, WSOP Main Event champions Joe Cada and Koray Aldemir. On the bubble, it was Albert Rogers who became the unfortunate bubble boy when his aces could not fade the queen-ten offsuit of Greg Gabriel.
Post bubble action
Many players who found cashes, but no gold around their wrist included Bertrand “Elky” Grospellier (311st – $1,061), Humberto Brenes (203rd – $1,326), soccer Star Neymar (49th – $3,959), Athanasios Polychronopoulos (27th – $5,696), and Ryan Depaulo (22nd – $,6,941). The bubble of the final table was burst when Josh Arieh fell to Wing Yam when his jack-ten could not hold against Yam’s nine-five suited and Jake Gudmundsen fell at the same time when his ace-queen could not draw out against Steve Frakes’ pocket kings. They finished in tenth place and ninth place, collecting $13,357 for their efforts.
Final Table Action
The final table began with short-stacked Wen Ni moving all in for his tournament life with a pair of eights, only to get looked up by Wing Yam’s ace-ten offsuit. The board came out ace-high and neither of Ni’s outs appeared on the turn or river, and Ni collected $16,953 for his ninth place finish.
After that, a double elimination of Louise Francoeur in eighth place and Ed Chang in seventh place followed when both players moved all in against the raise of Stovall, who ended up calling both of them. Stovall held ace-eight against the king-queen of Francoeur and the king-jack of Chang, neither of which found any help on the board. As Francoeur held fewer chips than Chang, she finished in eighth place for $21,733, while Chang finished in seventh place for $28,136.
Rafael Lebron got it in ahead against Stovall when he called his all-in with his top pair of kings against Stovall’s ace high. The turn ace, however, gave the lead back to Stovall, and the river did not improve his king-nine suited, and Lebron finished in sixth place for $36,782.
Larry Carillo was set for a double up when he got in his pocket kings in against Stovall’s king-ten suited. A flush on the flop left Carillo drawing dead, and he collected $48,551 for his fifth place finish.
Wing Yam ended his run in fourth place when he moved in his remaining chips with ace-king against Steve Frakes, who had pocket kings. He collected $64,702 for his deep run.
Frakes flirted with the chip lead for a bit, but after losing a few pots to both players three-handed he ended up having to put his remaining two big blinds in with ace-eight against both players, and he could not hold against the queen-three of Stovall, and his run came to an end in third place for $87,047.
Heads-up play was a relatively short affair as Heng moved in his final 22 big blinds in against Stovall’s raise with ace-five offsuit, which Stovall called with pocket sevens. The flop brought a straight draw to Heng, but the turn and river completed no straight, and Heng finished in second place for $118,213.
