It may be the weekend, but there was no rest of the players hoping to become 2022 World Series of Poker champions at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas because Day 19 of the 2022 WSOP was another busy session. Another three players secured WSOP gold bracelets on Day 19 of the series, while four more events inched closer to awarding their WSOP hardware.
Justin Pechie became a two-time WSOP champion when he came out on top of a 1,774 crowd in Event #34: $1,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold'em. Bracelet number two also came with $364,899 in prize money, giving Pechie plenty of ammunition for the rest of the series.
Hong Kong's Lok Chan has $144,338 reasons to celebrate after he took down Event #35: $2,500 Mixed Big Bet. Chan is only 22-years-old, making him the youngest bracelet winner of the 2022 WSOP so far.
The third bracelet of the evening is now on the wrist of Ali Eslami, who triumphed in Event #36: $1,50 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better. Eslami took home $135,260 and immediately jumped into the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship event, where he bagged a stack for Day 2.
Hellmuth Through to Day 3 of the $10K Deuce-to-Seven
It has been quite the 2022 WSOP for Phil Hellmuth. First, he missed the opening events with due to some, how shall we put it, stomach issues. Then he caught COVID-19 and was forced to sit on the sidelines. Then he had his chips accidentally swiped, but now he is on course for a record-extending 17th WSOP bracelet in Event #38: $10,000 No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw Championship.
Hellmuth returns for the final day with 591,000 chips, enough for fifth place from the remaining 14 superstars. However, Hellmuth's stack, as healthy as it is, is almost half that of Scott Seiver (1,014,000) who leads the final 14 players from the 121-strong field back into battle.
Defending champion Farzad Bonyadi (917,000), Eli Elezra (557,000), and Yuri Dzivielevski (51,0000) are just a trio of top-tier players standing between Hellmuth and his 17th bracelet.
Head to PokerNews' live reporting pages from 2:00 p.m. on June 19 for the conclusion of this star-studded event.

Yea Secured Millionaire Maker Day 1b Chip Lead
Another 4,429 players bought into Event #37: $1,500 Millionaire Maker on Day 1b, taking the total attendance to 7,975. The WSOP is still figuring out the overall prize pool, but there will be a top prize of at least $1 million as the event's name suggests.
Steve Yea finished Day 1b with a 445,000 stack, which were enough to call him the Day 1b chip leader. Several other players, including Christopher Gu (420,500), Alain Bauer (390,500), Nada Siddick (390,400), and Paul Berger (382,000) came close to becoming the overnight chip leader but the night belonged to Yea.
Also safely through to Day 2 are Ryan Leng (311,500), Robert Mizrachi (279,500), JJ Liu (276,500), Dmitry Yurasov (252,500), Dan Heimiller (167,500), and Georgios Sotiropoulos (116,000).
Play resumes at 10:00 a.m. local time on June 19 with 1,701 players returning to the action. PokerNews, as always, will be with you every step of the way as the massive field is decimated over the course of ten more levels.

Oxman Excels on Day 1 of the $3K PLO
Day 1 of the Event #39: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-Handed saw 719 players buy in and create a $1,919,730 prize pool, of which $3,71,358 awaits the winner. Ari Oxman has done his chances of securing that sum no harm at all because he bagged up 753,000 chips at the close of play and leads this event by some distance going into Day 2.
With the big blind on Day 2 starting at 2,500, Oxman has more than 300 big blinds in his stack, so plenty of room to manoeuvre when the second day shuffles up and deals.
Also deep-stacked are the likes of Anik Ajmera (641,500), David Levy (553,500), and Krzysztof Magott (493,500). Others to look out for in the PokerNews live updates includes the likes of Rafael Lebron (340,000), Robert Cowen (334,500), Shankar Pillai (305,000), Jan-Peter Jachtmann (264,000) Jeff Lisandro (150,000), and Paul Volpe (87,000).
Tune into PokerNews from 1:00 p.m. on June 19 when this event gets back underway. Only 108 of the 162 returning players is guaranteed some of the prize money, which means the bubble could and should burst in the opening few levels; exciting times indeed!

Todd Brunson finished in the top ten after Day 1 of Event #40: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Championship, courtesy of his 209,500 stack. The Poker Hall of Famer, whose solitary bracelet came in a $2,500 Omaha Hi-Lo event in 2005, is long overdue another piece of poker jewelry.
