  1. A bumper day of action in the 2022 World Series of Poker saw one bracelet winner take gold and over a million dollars while five other events provided great drama and excitement at Bally’s and Paris casinos in Las Vegas. With five players remaining in the H.O.R.S.E. Championship, huge stars made the final stages of bracelet events on Day 23 in Sin City.     Yuliyan Kolev Wins Millionaire Maker for $1.1 million   Bulgarian player Yuliyan Kolev won the $1,500-entry Millionaire Maker for $1.1 million as the Thunderdome was packed with fans inside Bally’s as five players played down to a winner. Kolev, whose fans wore the same fast-food bucket hats as their man, created a raucous atmosphere as the drama played out.   The first person to leave the party of five was Dominic Brazier, who came into play as the short stack and got it all-in with [poker card="Qd"][poker card="7s"]. Called by Kolev with [poker card="Jd"][poker card="8h"], the board of [poker card="Qs"][poker card="8d"][poker card="3c"]Ad][poker card="Js"] saw the eventual winner river two pairs to top Brazier’s flopped top pair and send him home with $301,346.   Next to go was Yita Choong in fourth place for $395,545 when his pocket pair of [poker card="7s"][poker card="7c"] against Kolev’s [poker card="Qd"][poker card="4s"]. Choong stayed ahead on the flop of [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Td"][poker card="6d"], but the turn of [poker card="Qc"] put Kolev into the lead and he rode out the [poker card="2d"] river to knock out another rival.   In third place, chip leader when play began Tyler Gaston busted with [poker card="Jd"][poker card="Th"] against Oren Rosen’s [poker card="Qc"][poker card="Tc"]. The board of [poker card="Jh"][poker card="7c"][poker card="5c"][poker card="9d"][poker card="Qd"] gave Rosen the pot and saw Gaston on the rail with $522,705. Israel player Rosen grew his stack upon starting heads-up play, but still had just 86 million chips to 113 milion for Kolev.   Very soon afterwards, Kolev had the title as Kolev’s three-bet with [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Ac"] was called by Rosen with [poker card="Qd"][poker card="Jc"]. The flop of [poker card="Qs"][poker card="8s"][poker card="3c"] saw Rosen hit his queen and Kolev’s c-bet of 10 million was called. On the turn of [poker card="3d"], Kolev moved all-in and got the call he was after. When the [poker card="9c"] river landed, the rail erupted as Kolev was crowned king of the Thunderdome, winning $1,125,141, while Rosen finished as runner-up for $695,390.   WSOP 2022 Event #37 $1,500 Millionaire Maker Final Table Results:   Yuliyan Kolev - $1,125,141 Oren Rosen - $695,390 Tyler Gaston - $522,705 Yita Choong - $395,545 Dominic Brazier - $301,346   Racener Chasing Yeh in Final Five of H.O.R.S.E. Championship   The final table of the $10,000-entry H.O.R.S.E. Championship was reached as Andrew Yeh has the chip lead with over 3.8 million chips. Behind Yeh, Philip Long closely follows with 3.6 million, with John Racener a slightly distant third of 2.5 million. Behind Racener is Bryce Yockey, who had the overnight lead with 1,290,000 chips and Craig Chait has a little less than him on 1,245,000.   On a busy day at the felt, players such as Yuri Dzivielevski, Shaun Deeb, Maxx Coleman, Eugene Katchalov and Matt Glantz all lost their tournament stacks, but others took longer to bust, with 2022 bracelet winner Brad Ruben (12th for $26,347) and Ben Lamb (10th for $31,327) both lost out just before the final table. When Mike Gorodinsky (7th for $61,314) was followed from the felt by Paul Sokoloff (6th for $80,523), the final table was set and tomorrow, one winner will take the $487,129 and the WSOP gold bracelet.   WSOP 2022 Event #44 $10,0000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship Final Table Chipcounts: Andrew Yeh - 3,860,000 Philip Long - 3,630,000 John Racener - 2,520,000 Bryce Yockey - 1,290,000 Craig Chait - 1,245,000   Final 10 Players Reached in 8-Max PLO Event   Just 10 players remain in the $1,500-entry PLO 8-Max Event #45, where David Prociak has the chip lead with 6,400,000 chips. With a busy day seeing 87 players hit the rail, Dylan Weisman ended the day second in chips with 5,660,000, with Shane Nardiello (4,725,000) also in the podium places. Elsewhere in the top 10, David Williams (2,980,000) and Phil Hui (2,675,000) both have great chances and will be fighting hard when play resumes.   Plenty of big names made their departures on Day 2 of the event, with Dash Dudley (28th), Brandon Cantu (42nd) and Scott Bohlman (46th) all running deep without making huge money.   WSOP 2022 Event #45 $1,500 PLO 8-Handed Final Day Chipcounts:   David Prociak - 6,400,000 Dylan Weisman - 5,660,000 Shane Nardiello - 4,725,000 Charles Coultas - 4,325,000 Daniel Tordjman - 3,745,000 David Williams - 2,980,000 Phil Hui - 2,675,000 Paul Fehlig - 1,930,000 Kao Saechao - 1,820,000 Dylan Smith - 1,640,000   Waigel Streets Ahead in $5k NLHE 6-Max Event Of the 324 players who returned to play Day 2 of the $5,000-entry 6-Max NLHE Event #46, only 47 players remain, with Argentinian player Ezequiel Waigel (3,440,000) well ahead of Anthony Spinella (2,575,000) and Stephen Song (2,485,000) in pursuit of the $771,765 top prize. With other big names such as Robert Mizrachi (1,170,000), Joey Weissman (985,000) and Elio Fox (895,000) all well-placed to make a run at the title when play resumes on Day 3.   Superstars busted across the day too, of course, with Ryan Riess, Dario Sammartino, Andrew Lichtenberger, Ben Diebold, Stefan Schillhabel, Jake Daniels, Angel Guillen and Bin Weng all departed, moving onto the next event and the next pursuit of WSOP gold.   WSOP 2022 Event #46 $5,000 NLHE 6-Max Top 10 Chipcounts:   Ezequiel Waigel - 3,440,000 Anthony Spinella - 2,575,000 Stephen Song - 2,485,000 Johan Marinet - 2,150,000 Justin Bond - 2,145,000 Paraskevas Tsokaridis - 1,970,000 Anthony Hu - 1,745,000 Felipe Ketzer - 1,540,000 Jonathan Pastore - 1,340,000 Jonho Hong - 1,315,000   Seniors Led by James Kennedy with Allyn Shulman Close   The $1,000-entry Seniors Event started on Day 23, with Day 1a serving a bumper crowd of 5,075 players, with just 607 of those progressing to Day 2. Chip leader after a long Day 1a was James Kennedy (452,000), with Allyn Shulman (361,500), Kevin Song (350,000), Barry Schulman (305,000) and Michael Abecassis (110,000) all having booked Day 2 seats already.   Of the thousands who busted, plenty were players of genuine repute, with Greg Raymer, Perry Friedman, Humberto Brenes, Todd Witteles, Bruno Lopes and defending champion Robert McMillan all going to need to buy back in on Day 1b if they want to shoot for the title, with over $4.5 million in the prize pool already.   WSOP 2022 Event #47 $1,000 Seniors Championship Top 10 Chipcounts:   James Kennedy - 452,000 Seongsu Kong - 365,000 Allyn Shulman - 361,500 Orlando Barrera - 358,500 Michel Bouskila - 353,500 Kevin Song - 350,000 Terence Anton - 343,500 Louis Russo - 339,000 Dennis Spretz - 333,000 Daniel Gerard - 310,000   Hellmuth Slams Arieh as Poker Brat Explodes   In the final event of the day to close, there was drama at the felt between the top two in last year’s WSOP Player of the Year race. Josh Arieh, who won the prestigious award last year and whose banner adorns the walls of Bally’s this year as a result, was torn apart by Hellmuth, who are berating the man who pipped him to the title, had the floor called him after an excessive barrage of expletives.   Hellmuth would later bust the event, as would others such as Yuri Dzivielevski, David Bach, Alex Livingston, Eugene Katchalov, Joe McKeehen and Yuval Bronshtein as 200 players escaped from a bulky Day 1 field of 695 total entries. There was no such exit for Arieh, however, who celebrated the day he received his first Poker Hall of Fame nomination by doing what he does best at present – piling up chips. Arieh ended the day with 119,300 chips and his reward was to draw the seat to the left of Shaun Deeb (60,900) on Day 2.   At the top of the leaderboard, Michael Dobbs (293,100), has a slim lead over Jay Kerbel (269,000), Hoeu Liu (251,500) and Randy Ohel (237,000), with Jason Stockfish (235,500) also making the top five. Others to bag up chips on a busy day at the felt included Event #15 runner-up Dustin Dirksen (227,000), former WSOP Main Event winner Scotty Nguyen (161,800) and three-time WSOP bracelet winner Ryan Leng (151,500).   WSOP 2022 Event #48 $1,500 8-Game Mix 6-Max Top 10 Chipcounts:   Michael Dobbs - 293,100 Jay Kerbel - 269,000 Hieu Luu - 251,500 Randy Ohel - 237,000 Jason Stockfish U.S.A. 235,500 Dustin Dirksen U.S.A. 227,000 Robert McLaughlin U.S.A. 222,200 Alex Outhred U.S.A. 221,600 Tyler Willse U.S.A. 216,800 Scott Bohlman U.S.A. 208,900   Reigning WSOP Player of the Year Josh Arieh welcomed the man he pipped to last year’s prize, Phil Hellmuth as the pair sat down in the final event of the day, but while the pair were all smiles, things were about to go awry when the Poker Brat berated Arieh - who would later change his Twitter handle to suit - only to find the floor called on him...   https://twitter.com/golferjosh/status/1539823716946677760   ...which was a shame because his day had started so positively.   https://twitter.com/phil_hellmuth/status/1539421999151271938   Mixed game specialist Adam Friedman called out a friend and rival of his, Brian Rast on being nominated for the Poker Hall of Fame upon turning 40.   https://twitter.com/AdamFriedman119/status/1539765652499472384   Rast, meanwhile, was in action at the cash game tables after stepping away from bracelet events for a couple of days.   https://twitter.com/tsarrast/status/1539760133634347008   The 10 nominees caused quite the reaction, as the Poker Hall of Fame winner is set to be announced in just under three weeks time.   https://twitter.com/WSOP/status/1539661139910336514   Official photographs courtesy of PokerGO, the home of live-streamed action throughout the 2022 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.  
  2. The latest day of poker action has concluded at the home of the World Series of Poker, the Rio Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. With two more bracelets won, there was also a pivotal day at the felt in the prestigious Poker Players Championship as Ryan Leng ended the third day on top of the leaderboard. Leng Leads from Arieh and Cates as 10 Remain in PPC Bracelet Hunt The third day of action in the $50,000-entry Poker Players Championship saw the remaining 35 players play down to just 10 who will return tomorrow to battle for the WSOP bracelet they all want to win and $954,020 up top. Leader of the pack with one day to close it out is Ryan Leng, who totalled 4.5 million chips by the close of play, but Leng will not have it easy with some of the best players in the world hot on his heels. Josh Arieh is closing to taking the lead from Leng, with both men having won gold already this Autumn at the Rio. Arieh has over 3 million chips, and both he and Daniel ‘Jungleman’ Cates (2.3 million) will harbor hopes of overtaking Leng before they reach the line. Elsewhere, a rollercoaster day for Daniel Negreanu ended with ‘Kid Poker’ surviving a brutal bad beat with Chris Brewer’s pocket eights getting there against the Canadian’s pocket aces when all the chips were in the middle pre-flop. Negreanu got through the money bubble and eventually ran his stack up to 700,000 by close of play. Others could not make it, and all of Adam Friedman, Alex Livingston, and Chris Vitch busted outside the money despite starting the day in the top 20% of the field. Others found the same fate, with Anthony Zinno, the current WSOP Player of the Year, busted before the money too, but some superstars of the game survived to fight another day. Eli Elezra (1,880,000) continued his great form this series, while Nick Schulman (1,280,000) and Day 2 chip leader Paul Volpe (900,000) will have designs on one of the most coveted bracelets of them all, and of course, getting their name on the Chip Reese Trophy. WSOP 2021 Event #60 $50,000 Poker Players Championship Final 10 Chipcounts: Ryan Leng - 4,500,000 Josh Arieh - 3,025,000 Dan Cates - 2,310,000 Chris Brewer - 2,025,000 Eli Elezra - 1,880,000 Matt Glantz - 1,575,000 Nick Schulman - 1,280,000 Paul Volpe - 900,000 Daniel Negreanu - 780,000 Mike Wattel - 670,000 Jean-Luc Adam Wins Super Seniors For First Bracelet The $1,000-entry Super Seniors event reached a conclusion with Frenchman Jean-Luc Adam earning his first-ever WSOP bracelet and the top prize of $255,623. With nine making the final table, Adam led from the start of that finale as overnight leader David Slaughter bust in 10th place for $18,837. Out in ninth place, just a few minutes after the final table began, was Gary Pagel, who earned $23,762 when his shove with [poker card="4s"][poker card="4h"] ran into Eugene Solomon’s [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9h"]. An ace on the flop doomed Pagel and he was followed from the room just a few minutes later by Reginald Powell. Powell cashed for $30,269 when his [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Kc"] couldn’t come back against Alex Katsman’s [poker card="Js"][poker card="Jc"], as the board gave the latter a flush on [poker card="As"][poker card="Qs"][poker card="5s"][poker card="Ks"][poker card="Qc"]. Girish Apte departed in seventh place for $38,932 when his [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Jc"] ran into Bill Stabler’s [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Kh"], with a queen-high board no help at all. Not long afterwards, Joseph Richards joined him, as his [poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"] couldn’t get anywhere against the eventual winner Adam, whose [poker card="Qc"][poker card="Qh"] held to send Richards home with $50,559. Katsman went in fifth for $66,284 after his pocket eights couldn’t hold against Solomon’s [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9h"], a flush on the river condemning Katsman to the exit door. He only lasted a couple of hands less than Bill Stabler, who won $87,722 when his shove with [poker card="Ac"][poker card="3c"] ran into Adam’s [poker card="Ah"][poker card="7h"] and lost to a flush on the turn. Three-handed, Scott Sukstorf was short and his laddering ended when his shove when short with [poker card="Ah"][poker card="8s"] ran into Adam’s [poker card="Kc"][poker card="Kh"]. A nine-high board sent Sukstorf home and gave Adam the lead into heads-up, with the Frenchman having 24 million to S0lomon’s 13 million. It was soon all over, Solomon moving all-in on a board showing [poker card="Jh"][poker card="7c"][poker card="5s"][poker card="4s"] with [poker card="Th"][poker card="9h"] and Adam calling with [poker card="Js"][poker card="7h"]. Solomon’s bluff still had a chance to catch an eight for a straight, but the [poker card="Ac"] river gave his opponent the well-earned title of WSOP champion. WSOP 2021 Event #58 $1,000 Super Seniors Event Final Table Results: Jean-Luc Adam - $255,623 Eugene Solomon - $157,986 Scott Sukstorf - $117,181 Bill Stabler - $87,722 Alex Katsman - $66,284 Joseph Richards - $50,559 Girish Apte - $38,932 Reginald Powell - $30,269 Gary Pagel - $23,762 Tag Team Crowns Winners In Event #59, the $1,000-entry Tag Team event, Mike Ruter and Samy Dighlawi won through after an intense three-hour heads-up battle saw the pip Tomer Wolf and David Landell to the crown and $113,366 top prize. Another team to star on the final day were Amanda Botfeld and her father David, who reached third place for a score of $49,512. In an emotional post on social media before the final, the younger of the pair thanked the elder statesman of the duo for their support and guidance. https://twitter.com/amandabotfeld/status/1455571669511139328 WSOP 2021 Event #59 $1,000 Tag Team Event Final Table Results: Mike Ruter & Samy Dighlawi - $113,366 Tomer Wolf & David Landell - $70,074 Amanda Botfeld & David Botfeld - $49,512 Michael Newman & Robert Ormont - $35,542 Alfie Adam & Vidur Sethi - $25,928 Benjamin Miner & Dmitriy Uskach - $19,226 Holly Babbitt & Michael Babbitt - $14,494 Zachary Erdwurm & Steven Jones - $11,114 Scott Johnston & Bob Fisher - $8,670 $600 Deepstack Down To 40 In Event #61, the $600-entry Deepstack, Perry Ernest proved strongest as he survived a busy Day 2 with the chip lead, holding 10.5 million by the time chis went into bags at the end of the night. With Sai Ruston (7,150,000) and Marc Rangel (6,800,000) in closest pursuit, the total field of 3,916 entrants is now down to just 40 payers, with only Barry Shulman (2,425,000) and Mark Seif (950,000) having won WSOP gold before. Players to bust on the day included Brandon Sheils, Philippe Souki, Philip Tom, and Kenny Hsiung, as well as Brett Apter and Day 1 chip leader Robert Hankins. WSOP 2021 Event #61 $600 Deepstack Championship Top 10 Chipcounts: Perry Ernest - 10,500,000 Sami Ruston - 7,150,000 Marc Rangel - 6,800,000 Richard Dixon - 6,430,000 Edgardo Rosario - 5,859,000 Jean Francois Alexandre - 5,480,000 Nicolas De Bari - 5,100,000 Ronald Slucker - 5,030,000 Fernando Viana Da Costa - 5,000,000 Rubin Chappell - 4,400,000 Just 13 Left In $1,5000 PLO 8 In Event #62, the $1,500-entry PLO8 tournament, Matthew Kaplan topped the leaderboard with 3.1 million chips on a day where everything changed for the former chip leader. Day 1 ended with Japanese player Tsugunari Toma sitting on one of the biggest leads anyone has built during this World Series of Poker. Toma, however, crashed and burned as Kaplan went in the opposite direction, barely lasting half the day as others such as Kevin Gerhart (2.9 million) and Dustin Dirksen (2.4 million) both thrived. Others to make the top 10 chip counts included Sterling Lopez (1,350,000) and Michael Trivett (730,000), with Gerhart the only remaining bracelet winner of the 13 players who are left, with British player Richie Allen still hanging onto a chance of debut gold with 515,000 chips at the next big blind of 50,000. WSOP 2021 Event #62 $1,500 PLO Hi-Lo 8 or Better Top 10 Chipcounts: Matthew Kaplan - 3,145,000 Kevin Gerhart - 2,900,000 Dustin Dirksen - 2,400,000 Roman Hrabec - 1,800,000 Sterling Lopez - 1,350,000 Dylan Wilkerson - 1,240,000 Tamon Nakamura - 1,145,000 Alexandr Orlov - 1,015,000 Bryant Bustamante - 805,000 Michael Trivett - 730,000 Players Turn Out For Salute To Warriors The opening day of the $500-entry Salute to Warriors event saw a great turnout, with 1,738 entrants reduced to just 169 players by the end of Day 1. Chip leader when the day closed was Andrew Moon, who was the only player to bag over a million chips with 1,274,000. He was followed in the chip counts by Taylor Pollard (866,000) and John Song (711,000), who along with Nicholas Verderamo (653,000), were the only three who amounted over half the impressive Moon’s dominant stack. With $40 from each player’s entry going towards the United Services Organization, a huge prize pool of $712,580 and a top prize of $102,465 means that plenty of money was raised for a great cause with big-name players such as Shuan Deeb donating along the way, although unfortunately for Deeb fans, the WSOP Player of the Year chaser didn’t make the Day 2 chip counts. WSOP 2021 Event #63 $500 Salute to Warriors Top 10 Chipcounts: Andrew Moon - 1,274,000 Taylor Pollard - 866,000 John Song - 711,000 Nicholas Verderamo - 653,000 Senthuran Vijayaratnam - 629,000 Terry Wheeler - 617,000 Kyle Besaw - 584,000 Alan Percal - 580,000 Marty Zabib - 557,000 Arnaldo Gordon - 536,000 Niklas Astedt Bags Big Stack In $5K NLHE/PLO Mix In the final event on the schedule, David Prociak (2,405,000) leads from Niklas Astedt (1,345,000) and Joni Jouhkimainen (1,215,000) in the $5,000-entry Event #64. With NLHE and PLO on the menu, other big names to bag top 10 chipcounts included Tommy Le (1,050,000), Uri Reichenstein (1,010,000) and Shar Levi (945,000), with players like Jason Somerville (690,000), Stefan Schillhabel (445,000) and Dan Smith (310,000) all still in with a chance of glory.
