15-time WSOPC winner Josh Reichard now a WPT Showdown champ

Reichard bags over $839,000 in one of his biggest victories to date

Josh Reichard has finally won his first major title after taking down the 2024 World Poker Tour (WPT) Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown. The 15-time World Series of Poker Circuit ring winner outlasted 1,859 entrants in the $3,500 buy-in event to take the biggest cut of the $5.9 million prize pool. He beat Landon Tice ($550,000) in a heads-up showdown to win $839,300 and take his career winnings to over $4 million.

“The friends and family definitely are what makes me rich, it’s not even close. And it was great. I mean, couldn’t have done it without them. It’s more than double my career high (sic) score,” said Reichard following the win. “All my titles [to this point] are minor league titles. This is a major league title. It feels great to finally break through and have a win of this magnitude.”

This event kicked off on April 19 at Seminole Hard Rock in Florida, with the final six players moving to the WPT studio in Las Vegas to play down to a winner.

Reichard was challenged by several talented opponents at the final table, including Aaron Kupin (6th for $176,000), Dylan Smith (5th for $230,000), Alexander Queen (4th for $305,000), and Jesse Lonis (3rd for $410,000).

Reichard is now in a three-way tie for the second most WSOP Circuit titles with 15 rings but has yet to win a WSOP bracelet. He came close in 2023 in the $1,000 buy-in Mini Main Event, finishing in second place. The Janesville, WI, native also has wins at the Mid-Stakes Poker Tour and the Moneymaker Tour.
