Sung Scores One For The PokerRoad Family
June 4, 2022

There was a moment during yesterday's World Series of Poker Event #4 final table where it appeared things weren't going that well for PokerRoad's Steve Sung.  Despite successfully weaving his way through over 6,000 opponents over the past couple of days and entering the "Stimulus Special" final table second in chips, a series of bad hands found Sung's stack suddenly plummeting and his hopes for his first WSOP bracelet slipping away.  It was a devastating and nerve wracking moment for Steve's fans, but a moment is really all it was. 

Once that moment had passed, Steve simply dominated.  According to live updates available at the powered by PokerNews, once Sung successfully righted his ship it was barely more than an hour before he was back in second place and less than two before he was in first with more than a 1.5 million chip cushion. 

After that Sung never looked back and was soon holding his first WSOP bracelet along with the pocket kings that put the final nail in the coffin of his last opponent, Panayote Vilandos.  For the victory, along with the bracelet Sung earned $771,106.

The final table finish positions for Event #4, the $1,000 buy-in "Stimulus Special," were as follows:

1st.  Steve Sung- $771,106

2nd.  Panayote Vilandos- $473,283

3rd.  James Matz III- $313,826

4th.  Larry Sidebotham- $227,254

5th.  Nathaniel Mullen- $175,851

6th.  Daniel Heimiller- $145,009

7th.  Jeffrey Oakes- $126,613

8th.  Phong Huynh- $117,414

9th.  Danny Fuhs- $114,168
