Vlogger Vaughan in the Hunt for Salute to Warriors Bracelet; Day 3 Starts at Noon

Matthew Vaughan

Matthew Vaughan, a popular YouTube poker vlogger, could have a new piece of hardware to show off at his next meetup game if all goes to plan Tuesday.

He enters the final 21 of Event #54: $500 Salute to Warriors No-Limit Hold'em in ninth place with an above-average chip stack of 7,750,000. While he does have nearly $300,000 in career live tournament earnings, he could potentially score his largest-ever WSOP cash Tuesday, with $161,256 and a prestigious WSOP bracelet up top.

He’ll be trying to chase down James Todd, who enters the day with the chip lead, an even 20,000,000. Rigoberto Rodriguez is the closest player to him on the leaderboard, in second place with 14,950,000, while just three others come back with eight-figure stacks.

The massive event, which saw 3,209 entries pay their $500 for a shot at WSOP glory and to help support the USO and other Veterans organizations, has smashed its entry record, as 1,723 entries took part in 2019 with Susan Faber winning $121,161, and 1,738 entered in 2021 with Eric Zhang taking home $102,465 for his victory.

The event had originally been scheduled for just the final five players to be returning Tuesday for Day 3, but with such a huge field it will be 21 players coming back to the Bally’s Event Center at 12:00 noon local time for Level 33 and onward until a champion is crowned.

Matthew Vaughan Eliminated in 18th Place ($6,839)

Nível 33 : 200,000/400,000, 400,000 ante

While the other tables were already waiting on the redraw to two tables, the first and only hand played on the outer table took the better part of ten minutes and ultimately resulted in the bustout of Matthew Vaughan.

It was Rigoberto Rodriguez who opened with a raise to 950,000 in the cutoff, Matthew Vaughan called on the button, and Zyad Qasem called from the big blind. The flop was {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{8-Spades} and Qasem and Rodriguez checked to Vaughan, who bet 950,000. Qasem check-raised to 2,500,000, Rodriguez folded, and Vaughan called after some thought.

On the {8-Hearts} turn, Qasem shoved all in, putting Vaughan to the test for his final 4 million in chips. Vaughan spent minutes in the tank before the clock was called on him. The seconds were ticking away as Vaughan was mulling over his decision.

With one second left on the clock, he decided to call it all off but instantly received the bad news.

Matthew Vaughan: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Zyad Qasem: {q-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

Vaughan did have some outs but the {2-Diamonds} river wasn't one of them, ending his deep run early on Day 3.
