2022 WSOP Day 20: Bromfman, Stovall, and 'PmpknHead' Secure Bracelets

2022 World Series of Poker bracelet

June 19 was the 20th day of the 2022 World Series of Poker at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas, and it was yet another day filled with action, high-drama, and some substantial paydays.

Three players joined the ever-growing list of WSOP bracelet winners on Day 20. Brazil's Pedro Bromfman almost did not play in Event #38: $10,000 2-7 Single Draw Championship but decided to buy-in at the last minute. It turned out to be a fantastic decision because Bromfman was triumphant in this star-studded event, and he is now $294,616 richer and the recipient of a WSOP bracelet as a result.

Poker dealer Ramsey Stovall was the second player to win a bracelet on Day 20 of the 2022 WSOP. Stovall was meant to be at work today but his boss said to come into work on his day off instead, and to "go get 'em" in Event #41: $1,000 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold'em. Get them he did, emerging victoriously to bank $191,268 and that all-important gold poker hardware.

The third and final bracelet of the day went to "PmpknHead", who came out on top of a 429-strong crowd in the $1,000 PLO 6-Max Online event. It took almost 14 hours for the

Event #37: $1,500 Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold'em is down to a more manageable 232 players after the conclusion of Day 2. Some 1,700 players rom the 7,961 starting field returned to Bally's and Paris Las Vegas on June 19, but ten levels of action saw almost 1,500 players head to the exits.

Tom Thomas not only survived the slaughter but emerged with a tournament-leading stack of 2,875,000 chips. Thomas held onto the chip lead despite a late surge from Paul Ahn (2,650,000). Ireland Seamus Cahill (2,560,000), Spain's Raul Martinez (2,370,000), and Maxime Chilaud of France (2,250,000) round out the top five.

There are still a handful of WSOP bracelet winners in contention for this event's gold and the $1,125,141 top prize. Elio Fox (1,510,000), Ryan Leng (1,330,000), Raj Vohra (1,040,000), and Michael Mizrachi (850,000) to name four of them.

Day 3 kicks off at 10:00 a.m. local time on June 20 and sees another ten 60-minute levels play out. There should be a clearer picture of who will become the 2022 Millionaire Maker champion once Day 3 is done and dusted.

Israel's Leonid Yanovski (5,000,000) is the man to catch going into Day 3 of Event #39: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-handed where only 16 of the original 719 players still have high hopes of securing the largest slice of the $1,919,730 prize pool and a coveted gold WSOP bracelet.

There are some players with serious PLO skills among the final 16 players in this tournament. Jamey Hendrickson (3,660,000) finished second in Event #30: $1,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed earlier in the series, while Fabian Brandes (2,060,000) was the runner-up in Event #19: $25,000 High Roller Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed.

Then you have Jan-Peter Jachtmann (1,130,000), who won the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship at the 2012 WSOP.

Everything points to this event coming to a thrilling conclusion, so stay tuned to PokerNews from 2:00 p.m. local time on June 20 as we bring you all the action.

Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo Champion May Need a Fourth Day; Deeb Second in Chips

A fourth day may be required in Event #40: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship thanks, in part, to a two-hour hand-for-hand period when the money bubble refused to burst. The event is scheduled to conclude after Day 3 but the players were warned an additional day may come into play. The money bubble finally popped when Dominik Baud couldn't beat Eric Kurtzman, when the latter filled up on sixth street, and Baud missed his low draw. Baud headed home empty-handed while Kurtzman finished with 873,000 chips, enough for third place right now.

Only 15 of the original 137 players remain in the hunt for this event's bracelet and $324,174 top prize, the lion's share of the $1,277,525 prize pool. It is Chad Eveslage (1,131,000) who leads those surviving players back into battle on June 20, when a champion will be crowned regardless of how long it takes to do so. Five-time WSOP champion Shaun Deeb is hot on Eveslage's heels with a 1,017,000 stack.

Standing between Eveslage and another bumper payday are the likes of Daniel Zack (568,000), Todd Brunson (540,000), Brian Hastings (483,000), John Monnette (271,000), and Daniel Negreanu (162,000) among others.

Play resumes at 3:00 p.m. local time on June 20.

Aldemir Going For Gold in the $100,000 Super High Roller

$100,000 buys you a lot of things in this world, but the 52 people who spent $100,000 to enter Event #42: $100,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold'em received 600,000 chips for their investment. Only 23 of those 52 starters punched their Day 2 tickets, including reigning WSOP Main Event champion Koray Aldemir (2,390,000).

Aldemir's stack places him third going into Day 2 on June 20. Aldemir's first bullet was a blank, but his second saw him shoot up the table and put himself in contention for what would be a second WSOP bracelet and another seven-figure payday.

Masashi Oya (2,765,000) and Aleksejs Ponakovs (2,490,000) were the only players to bag up more betting tokens than the world champion.

Also in the mix are such luminaries as Ben Heath (2,275,000), GGPoker ambassador Jason Koon (2,230,000), recent bracelet winner Dan Smith (1,560,000), serial tanker Christoph Vogelsang (1,450,000), and a certain Phil Ivey (1,410,000).

Late registration remains open until the start of Day 2 at 12:00 p.m. local time on June 20, so expect a handful of superstars to turn up fashionable late and flick in the six-figure buy-in.
