Day 17 of the 2022 World Series of Poker at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas took place on June 16 and saw three more gold WSOP bracelets awarded, including a sixth career piece of poker jewelry for Brian Hastings.
Hasting took down Event #31: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship after an almost two-hour heads-up battle with Eric Wasserson. The New Yorker now has six career bracelets and more than $4.7 million in live tournament cashes.
Daniel Weinman finally got his hands on a WSOP bracelet after 15 years attempting to do so. Weinman went into the final day of Event #30: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed as the chip leader from the remaining ten players but still hand plenty of work to do. He got that work done and can now call himself a poker champion.
The third bracelet awarded on Day 17 came in Event #33: $3,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em, a tournament that drew in a 1,348-strong crowd. Germany's Nino Ullmann, who has only been in Las Vegas for a few days, outlasted them all. Ullman not only reeled in his first gold bracelet but a career-best score worth $594,079. The German plans to use his new bolstered bankroll to play in as many 2022 WSOP events as possible.
David Williams Leads the Race for the $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. Title
Only 22 players remain in contention to become the champion of Event #32: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E and it David Williams who leads the charge going into the third and final day. William bagged up 2,125,000 chips at the end of Day 2, nudging him ahead of Jason Daly (2,015,000) in second place.
Williams already has a WSOP bracelet to his name but he captured it some 16 years ago, which is one hell of a wait for a second. The 2004 WSOP Main Event runner-up will have to fight his way through Michelle Roth (1,405,000), Shirley Rosario (1,170,000), Japan's Tamon Nakamura (1,005,000) among others if he is to end his bracelet drought.

Sverko Leads the $1,500 NLHE Freezeout Going Into Day 2; Jacobson Lurking
Being able to fire only a single bullet in Event #34: $1,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold'em resulted in the 1,774 starting field reducing to a much more manageable 158 over the course of 17 levels that last 40-minutes each. When the dust settled on a fast and furious opening day, it was Gregor Sverko who emerged unscathed and with a tournament-leading stack of 1,046,000 chips.
While it is Sverko who leads the surviving 158 back into battle on Day 2, he is joined by a whole host of stars. The 2014 WSOP Main Event champion Martin Jacobson (488,000), winner of two $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em events Athanasios Polychronopoulos (588,000), reigning WSOP Main Event champion Koray Aldemir (200,000), Adrian Mateos (281,000), and Maurice Hawkins (536,000) are just a handful of names still in contention for this event's bracelet and the $364,899 top prize that is awarded to the eventual champion.
Another ten one-hour-long levels are planned for Day 2 on June 17, which shuffles up and deals at 12:00 p.m. As always, PokerNews will be on the ground throughout.

Ashby Leads The Way in the $2,500 Mixed Big Bet Event
A bumper crowd of 281 players bought into Event #35: $2,500 Mixed Big Bet on Day 1 but only 101 of those still had chips in front of them when the tournament director called time on the day's action. Richard Ashby, who already has a WSOP bracelet in his collection, bagged up a tournament leading stack of 387,100 chips, and holds quite a commanding lead going into Day 2 on June 17.
The specialized nature of this tournament lured in some of poker's most stellar names, many of whom progressed to Day 2. Brian Rast (193,900), Keith Lehr (191,400), and David Prociak (171,700) each bagged and tagged top ten stacks.
Further down the ladder you find such luminaries as Benny Glaser (135,700), Brad Ruben (101,900), Robert Mizrachi (101,400), Yuri Dzivelevski (95,000), Josh Arieh (87,300), Phil Ivey (51,300), and Daniel Negreanu (23,600).
Honestly, check out the overnight chip counts and you will not believe how many superstars are still in the mix in this tournament.
They all return to the action from 1:00 p.m. on June 17 and play another ten 60-minute levels. We can hardly contain our excitement.

Barry Greenstein Bags Big in the $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Event
Three-time WSOP bracelet winner Barry Greenstein is one of the big stacks in Event #36: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better after he ended Day 1 with a stack of 146,000 chips. It is 14 years since Greenstein captured the $1,500 Razz title, now he is looking to end that drought in another Stud format.
