The 2022 World Series of Poker at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas shows no signs of slowing down; it is speeding up if anything! Day 27 of the 2022 WSOP saw four players get their hands on gold bracelets, and five other events reach various stages of completion. The $50,000 Poker Players Championship was one of those five tournaments. It saw Dan Cates enter the fray dressed in a rather fetching Randy "Macho Man" Savage outfit. Yes, really.
Event #49: $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em also crowned its champion, and Simeon Spasov is that player. Only seven of the 1,977 starters made it through to the fourth and final day's action, and none of them has experienced the joy of becoming a WSOP bracelet winner. That fact changed for Spasov who defeated Mike Watson heads-up to strike poker gold and to bank $527,944 in prize money.
It was bracelet number one for online grinder KT Park who emerged victoriously from Event 52: $2,500 Nine Game Mix 6-Handed. The victory came with $219,799 after Park navigated his way through a 456-strong field to become a WSOP winner for the first time.

The bracelets did not stop there because Event #53: $5,000 Mixed No-Limit Hold'em/Pot-Limit Omaha concluded with Joao Simao as the only player from 788 starters to have chips in front of them. A star-studded final day ended with Simao celebrating becoming a 2022 WSOP champion, a accolade that came with $686,242 plus bracelet number two.
Finally, for bracelet winners, William "swaggyb" Corvino triumphed in the Online $600 Deepstack Championship. The tournament drew in a crowd of 1,284 who created a $938,520 prize pool. A cool $149,319 of that sum went to Covino who defeated Pavel "easygame1" Plesuv heads-up to become the latest WSOP online champion.
Only Five Remain in the Senior's Championship; Sarnoff Stack 'em High
Ben Sarnoff (55,000,000) leads the final five players in Event #47: $1,000 Seniors Championship where $694,009 awaits the winner. Although Sarnoff hold a commanding lead going into the final day's action, he will not have matters his own way because his final four opponents have reached this stage on merit.
Eric Smidinger (32,800,000) returns in second place while Poker Hall of Fame nominee Kathy Liebert (29,100,000) is the only remaining player to have won a bracelet previously. Biagio Morciano (19,000,000) and Charles Mitchell (7,900,000) make up the remaining players but are not simply there to make up the numbers.
Play resumes at 11:00 a.m. and continues until one player has all the chips in play.

Field Trimmed in the Massive Colossus; Pelon Leads the Final 68
Event #51: $400 Colossus reached Day 3 with only 68 of the 13,565 starters remaining in the hunt for the event's bracelet and the $414,490 first place prize. Frenchman Jordan Pelon (30,350,000) is by far the chip leader with almost double the number of chips than second-placed Francklin Flory (17,375,000), also of France.
Only one former WSOP bracelet winner is among the final 68 player; David Jackson (4,600,000) finds himself towards the bottom of the chip counts. This means the Colossus is all but guaranteed to have a new champion once Day 3 concludes. That Day 3 shuffles up and deals at 10:00 a.m. on June 27, join the PokerNews team then for all the action as the Colossus crowns its champion.

Bumper Crowd Turns Out on Day 1 of the Salute to Warriors
Some 3,079 players bought into Event #54: $500 Salute to Warriors on Day 1 but only 498 of those had chips in front of them that required bagging and tagging when the curtain came down on the opening day's action. Only 16 of those surviving players will head home empty-handed with 482 places paid.
Aryan Oliveira (1,328,000) is all but guaranteed to reach the money places because the Brazilian heads into Day 2 as the chip leader. Jackson Traub (1,077,000), Patrick Pilko (1,057,000), and Gerry Harris (1,024,000) have done their chances of become a WSOP champion the world of good by bagging up seven-figure stacks at the close of play.
Also through to Day 2 with 205,000 chips is GGPoker sponsored pro Nana Sanechika, who returns in 325th place and with a little work to do if she is to achieve poker gold.

Team Phan, made up of Peter Phan and Jeffrey Trina, bagged up a tournament-leading stack of 435,500. That is a considerable lead over Nick Yunis and Reynel Hernandez of Team Yunis who finished their Day 1 with 268,000 chips. Dennis Toms and Jose Giordani of Team Toms ended Day 1 with 246,000 chips.
Noon local time on June 27 is when the Tag Team recommences. Head to PokerNews then for all the action from this unique tournament.

The tournament every poker pro wants to win, Event #56: $50,000 Poker Players Championship, drew in 91 players on Day 1 and only five players fell by the wayside after the completion of six 100-minute levels. Among those who bought in were eight former champions of this event, six members of the Poker Hall of Fame, and five WSOP Players of the Year. Oh, and Daniel Cates dressed, for some reason, as Randy "Macho Man" Savage!
However, it was Luke Schwartz (893,000) who came out on top when time was called on Day 1 proceedings. Schwartz won a large pot against Frenchman Julien Martini to claim the overnight chip lead.
The controversial Bryn Kenney (802,000) is currently second in chips, with Shaun Deeb (718,500), Bryce Yockey (715,000), and Aaron Katz (695,500) rounding out the top five.
