David Peters took gold as the $100,000 High Roller Bounty Event #2 concluded at breakneck speed on Day 3 of the 2022 World Series of Poker. Overcoming Chance Kornuth inside 26 hands, Peters’ victory confirms that it would be he and not Kornuth who won their fourth bracelet on a busy day of action at Bally’s and Paris that saw four more bracelet events take place in the heat of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Peters Wins Bracelet Number Four at Kornuth’s Expense

Chance Kornuth came into play as a big chip leader, but after the eliminations of 2021 Main Event champion Koray Aldemir and Ali Imsirovic, it was David Peters who took the chip lead. In a rollercoaster of a final table, Italian 2019 WSOP Main Event runner-up Dario Sammartino busted in third place to set up a mouthwatering heads up between Peters and Kornuth. The entire final table took just an hour to race to a conclusion in thrilling circumstances, and you can watch all the action below as David Tuchman and Sam Grafton brought fans the action.

Phil Ivey Survives to Day 2 of Heads Up Championship

A total field of 64 players sat down to face off in the most personal form of poker in the WSOP as the $25,000-entry Heads-Up Championship took place. With some huge players crashing out in Round 1 alone, a few surprises saw underdogs triumph. Despite this, several big names advanced to Round 3 after two consecutive victories, including Alex Foxen, Chance Kornuth and 10-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Ivey.

Just 16 players survived Day 1, and Ivey was the top pick for many fans on the rail. The Poker Hall of Famer triumphed against Henri Puustinen first, before making light work of Jeremy Ausmus in a dominant performance that will thrill Ivey’s millions of fans. Ausmus, one of the best in the game at closing out wins, was behind early and could never get any momentum against Ivey as the latter snuffed out any attempt from Ausmus to get back into their duel. Eventually, Ivey ground his opponent down as two of the most in-form players this year in poker produced a classic.

Phil Ivey
Phil Ivey took part in the $25,000 Heads Up Championship and made Day 2 in style.

Elsewhere, there were disappointing results for crowd pleasers as players such as Daniel Negreanu, who lost to Kevin Rabichow after a cruel runner-runner flush ousted Kid Poker’s pocket pair when Rabichow called a shove pre-flop with overcards. Mikita Badziakouski’s tournament came to an end too, this time in Round 2 after he had beaten Landon Tice in the opening round. The Belarussian could not get the better of reigning WSOP Main Event champion Koray Aldemir, who prevailed with pocket queens against Badziakouski’s pocket sixes to set up an all-German encounter with high roller regular Christoph Vogelsang.

With former bracelet winners such as Anthony Zinno and Chance Kornuth surviving the opening two rounds, other stars such as Alex Foxen, Dan Smith, Dario Sammartino, Sean Winter , Matthew Gonzales and John Smith all hoping to add a bracelet to their poker trophy collection for the first time, the battle to make the money early on Day 2 will be a thrilling one.

Seiver Leads Final 10 in Event #3

Scott Seiver will aim to win his fourth WSOP bracelet when play resumes on the final day of Event #3, the $2,500 buy-in Freezeout No Limit Hold’em event. From the 113 who started Day 2, just 10 survive, after playrs such as Shaun Deeb, Joe Cada, Jonathan Dokler, Faral Galfond, Anthony Zinno, David Benyamine, Adrian Mateos, Sergi Reixach, Cord Garcia and Dylan Linde all departed on the second day’s play.

Heading to the final day, Seiver has a decent chip lead with 6,150,000 chips, a considerable amount clear of David Goodman (3,900,000) and Steve Zolotow (3,125,000). Zolotow is one of two challengers to Seiver’s chances with previous wins in WSOP events, with Nick Schulman (1,415,000) also a threat, albeit starting from ninth position in terms of chips.

With players such as Sergio Aido (2,570,000), Chris Hunichen (2,410,000) and Aditya Agarwal (1,870,000) all chasing down the leader too, it looks an exciting final day on the horizon as players race towards a top prize of $320,059.

Six Bracelet Winners Chase Dealer’s Choice Crown

With just 14 players remaining, Brad Ruben (2,102,000) leads the Dealer’s Choice field into their final day in the $1,500-entry Event #4. Reigning champion in the event Jaswinder Lally (565,000) is still involved as he shoots for that most elusive of achievement in WSOP history – the back-to-back win. Ruben’s lead is a big one, however, with only Jorge Walker (1,420,000) and Alfred Atamian (1,004,000) in seven digits, with Ruben more than double the stack of 12 of his 13 remaining foes.

With legendary WSOP commentator Norman Chad (526,000) still in the hunt and Brian Rast (466,000) aiming for a sixth WSOP bracelet, the field is filled with quality players as the niche event with a top prize of $126,288 will play down to a winner on Friday.

Finally, Event #5 closed the action for the night, as 147 players survived from a mammoth field of 3,376 on Day 1. It was a former braceelt winner who topped the leaderboard as chips were bagged up for the night, with Justin Liberto looking to follow up on his debut bracelet win in 2015 with a second piece of gold jewelry seven years later. His stack of 4,225,000 dwarfs anyone other than Jordan Hufty (3,765,000) and Maury Barrett (2,920,000) by 1.5 million chips.

Plenty of big names busted the event but some to exit late in the day included Maria Konnikova, who busted with pocket tens to pocket jacks, female WSOP Player of the Year in 2021 Nadya Magnus and WSOP bracelet winner Joe Cheong.
