Aaron Duczak’s Main Event Story
Aaron Duczak is a regular at the World Series of Poker, one with 40 cashes dating back to 2011. However, the upcoming WSOP Main Event is the first WSOP final table that Duczak has reached; he plans to make the most of it.
Some $156,927 of Duczak’s $423,887 in career winnings stem from WSOP events. The 2022 WSOP had not been kind to the Canadian until the Main Event because he had only managed one cash, finishing 159th in the $2,000 No-Limit Hold’em event for $4,355.
Ten or 12 Canadians are heading to support Duczak on the rail for the final table.
“I’ve a small contingent of crazy Canadians coming here for sure, maybe 10 or 12. They are probably going to be louder than the Brits for sure.”
Now there is a challenge if ever we saw one.
Duczak has remained cool, calm and collected through his Main Event run, although it helps to always have the best hand in key hands.
“The last week and a bit, every time I have had the best and, and each time it held up. I don’t think I ever got it in behind. I’m waiting until tomorrow to get it in behind and suck out!
Duczak’s Run to the Final Table
Duczak joined the Main Event action on Day 1c and finished with 62,500 chips, enough for 810th place on the leaderboard. Day 2abc and Day 3 were slow affairs for the Canadian before everything exploded into life on Day 2. Duczak sat down on Day 4 with 356,000 chips but ended the night with a top 50 stack worth 2,355,000.
Day 5 saw Duczak finish in the top 40 with 5,035,000 chips, but he was closer to the bottom than the top of the final 35 on Day 6 when he bagged up 8,125,000 chips.
Duczak doubled through fellow finalist Philippe Souki early into Day 7 with jacks versus tens before his stack dwindled again. he later doubled with ace-queen versus the deuces of Jeffrey Farnes, then doubled with aces versus the eights of Matthew Su, and he never looked back. He added more 12 million chips to his stack late into Day 7 when his ace-king held against Vadim Rozin’s ace-ten, busting Rozin in 12th place.
