2022 WSOP Day 24: Ivey Bags a Big Stack in the $250K Super High Roller

Phil Ivey

Day 24 of the 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) took place on June 23 and saw seven action-packed events across the vast tournament areas of Bally's and Paris Las Vegas. Two players walked away with gold bracelets for their efforts, while five other events inched closer to awarding their poker gold.

Andrew Yeh was the first player to strap a WSOP bracelet to their wrist on Day 24. Event #44: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship was down to only five players from the 209 that started, and it was Yeh who came out on top under the watchful eyes of the PokerNews Live Reporting team and viewers on the PokerGO stream, defeating Craig Chait after a three-hour heads-up battle.

Phil Hui became a WSOP champion for the third time courtesy of being the last man standing in Event #45: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed. Ten players returned for the final day's action but only one of them had chips in front of them when the curtain came down on proceedings. Hui was that player.

Elsewhere, the $250,000 buy-in Super High Roller kicked off and it was Phil Ivey who bagged up one of the biggest stacks, giving him a chance to capture what would be his 11th WSOP bracelet of a long and illustrious career.

Jason Stockfish

There are only 16 players remaining in Event #48: $1,500 Eight Game Mix 6-Handed and none of them have more chips than Jason Stockfish (2,540,000). Stockfish may hold a commanding lead going into Day 3 but his victory is far from assured thanks to some of the best mixed games players on the planet still having chips to attack him with.

Eric Buchman (1,461,000), Robert Campbell (1,229,000), and Adam Friedman (1,027,000) are just three superstars who will most certainly have an input on who wins this event's bracelet.

Faraz Jaka
Faraz Jaka

Some 1,977 players bought into Event #49: $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em on Day 1 but only 310 of those had chips that required bagging by the time the 15th level of the night concluded.

Faraz Jaka (735,000) finished Day 1 with the chip lead, but only just because it is very tight at the top. Dan Colpoys (730,000), and John Perry (729,000) finished within a big blind of each other.

Other grinders who bagged up an ample number of chips included Romain Lewis (520,000), Natalie Hof (431,000), Jonas Mackoff (328,000), Damian Salas (318,000), and Ben Yu (292,000).

Lower down in the chip counts but still with plenty to play for are such luminaries as Georgios Sotiropoulos (248,000), Marcel Vonk (205,000), Scott Davies (184,000), Maria Ho (166,000), Chris Moorman (160,000), and recent bracelet winner Phil Hui (110,000).

Day 2 kicks off at 1:00 p.m. local time and continues until another 10 levels are done and dusted.

Ridiculously Stacked $250K Super High Roller Sees Ivey Climb High; Mateos Leads Again

Adrian Mateos

The biggest buy-in tournament of the 2022 WSOP, Event #50: $250,000 Super High Roller No-Limit Hold'em, drew in 52 entries on Day 1 with 30 of those making it through to Day 2. Late registration remains open until the start of Day 2, so expect even more stellar names to flick in the quarter of a million dollar buy-in!

Defending champion Adrian Mateos shot to the top of the overnight leaderboard after eliminating Dan Smith late into the night. Mateos returns to the fray with 9,745,000 chips or 325 big blinds as he hunts for his fifth WSOP bracelet.

Phil Ivey (6,830,000) was the chip leader for quite a while until Mateos busted Smith late on. Ivey has not added to his bracelet collection since 2014; what a way to end the drought by taking down this Super High Roller for what would be his first No-Limit Hold'em bracelet.

Dario Sammartino (4,835,000), Nick Petrangelo (4,500,000), Dan Zack (4,445,000), and Alex Foxen (4,250,000) each bagged up more than four million chips, while Martin Kabrhel (3,935,000), reigning WSOP Main Event champion Koray Aldemir (3,805,000), Chris Hunichen (3,750,000), and Ivey's nemesis in the $100,000 High Roller, Aleksejs Ponakovs (3,370,000) round out the top ten.

Day 2 shuffles up and deals at 2:00 p.m. local time, with the plan to play down to five players. Will Ivey be among that final five? Tune into PokerNews to find out.
