Adam Walton’s Main Event Story

Adam Walton is a poker player in the Las Vegas area (Henderson, Nevada), but is originally from Seattle, Washington. Prior to reaching the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event, he had some previous success at the WSOP, including 20 cashes for $265,147 in bracelet events.

In 2018, Walton cashed in the Main Event, taking 407th place for $33,305. In all poker tournaments, the Washington native has $989,039 in previous cashes, according to Hendon Mob. His top score was for $283,072, a runner-up finish in the 2022 World Poker Tour (WPT) World Championship Series at Wynn Las Vegas in a $3,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em event.

“It’s been like the time of my life. It’s crazy.”

“I mean, honestly, it feels like a dream,” he told PokerNews at the end of Day 8. “It feels fake. I went from randomly playing the Main, I had like 12,000 chips in the beginning, and (now) this is happening. It’s been like the time of my life. It’s crazy.”

Waltons’s Run to the Final Table

Walton is the prime example of “survive and advance” in the World Series of Poker Main Event. After dropping to a small stack on Day 1c, he battled back and finished the session right about where he began the day. While in most tournaments that wouldn’t put the player in a very good position, in the Main Event, it’s a marathon, not a sprint.

From there on out, Walton increased his stack significantly each day, except on Day 5, when he ended the session barely above his previous night’s bag. Day 7 is when things turned around for the better for Walton as he went from 12.2 million in chips to over 75 million, good for second out of 15 remaining players.

On Day 8, he went on an even bigger heater and overtook chip leader Juan Maceiras during the middle of the session. He finished the day first in chips with 143,800,000, worth 144 big blinds. With his stack size and playing chops, Walton goes into the final table as the odds-on favorite to win the Main Event.
