The curtain has come down on another 2022 World Series of Poker day's action at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas, and what a day it was. No fewer than seven events, including the first pair of online tournaments, packed out the venues with players from all corners of the globe.
Norbert Szecsi of Hungary secured his third career WSOP bracelet when he triumphed in the $5,300 No-Limit Hold'em High Roller Freezeout, while Manig Loeser triumphed in the other online event, the No Limit Hold'em BIG $500.
Elsewhere, a bumper crowd turned out for the fourth and final flight of the $500 Housewarming, while the $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low 8 or Better event could not determine its champion so spread into an unscheduled fourth day of play.

Depaulo Bags a Top 10 Stack on Day 1d of the Housewarming
Day 1D of Event #5: $500 Housewarming saw an massive crowd of 7,268 players buy in but only 339 of them progress to Day 2. That bumper final flight's crowd takes the total attendance to 20,080 and the prize pool to $8,435,280, obliterating the $5 million guarantee.
Tyler Gaston bagged up the most chips on Day 1d, namely 4,510,000. Only Jong Kim (4,000,000) broke through the four-million chip barrier.
Finishing with 2,735,000 chips, enough for tenth place on the Day 1d leaderboard, was bracelet winner Ryan Depaulo. He won The BIG 500 Online event in 2020 and is now in with a legitimate shot of winning a second piece of WSOP hardware.
Others through to Day 2 include Niall Farrell (1,320,000), Manig Loeser (1,200,000), Tuan Le (595,000), and Matt Waxman (550,000).
Day 2 commences at 10:00 a.m. with 899 players returning to their seats. Follow all of the action right here at PokerNews.

O8 Event Concludes with Amnon Filippi and Matt Vengrin Heads-Up
Day 3 of Event #7: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better started with 26 players vying for a bracelet, and the plan was to play down to a champion. However, after 12.5 hours of play, and with it only being a few hours until the Las Vegas sun began to rise, heads-up duo Amnon Filippi and Matt Vengrin decided to call it a night and return to complete their one-on-one battle at 3:00 p.m. on June 6.
Filippi is the favorite for the title going into the unscheduled Day 4. He bagged up the chip lead at the end of Day 2 and returns to the fray armed with 19,525,000, more than 2.5-times as many chips as Matt Vengrin on 7,700,000. One of these players will become a WSOP champion for the first time. Stay tuned to PokerNews to discover which one achieves that feat.

Brewer Leads Final 15 in the $25,000 High Roller
Only 15 players remain in Event #8: $25,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold'em, and Chris Brewer is the man to catch going into Day 3. Brewer bagged up 5,100,000 chips at the close of play, narrowly putting him ahead of Chad Eveslage (4,915,000) and Brek Schuttern (4,610,000).
Four former bracelet winners are among the final 15, each looking to reel in the massive $1,415,610 top prize and another piece of poker jewelry. Four-time WSOP bracelet winner Josh Arieh (1,995,000) is the best-place of that quartet. Ognyan Dimov (1,975,000), Byron Kaverman (1,880,000), and reigning WSOP Main Event champion Koray Aldemir (520,000) are the others.
Play resumes at 1:00 p.m. on June 6, and PokerNews will be with you every step of the way.

Livingston Leads as Stud Event Reaches Final Table
It took ten gruelling hours to reduce the 97 players who made it through to Day 2 of Event #9: $1,500 Seven Card Stud to a more manageable final table of eight, and it is Alex Livingston who leads them into battle on June 6.
Livingstone holds a commanding lead courtesy of cramming 2,495,000 chips into the overnight bag. Former WSOP champions Kenny Hsiung (1,605,000) and John Racener (1,160,000) are Livingstone's nearest rivals.
Also at the eight-handed final table are Thomas Taylor (765,000), Brad Ruben (725,000) who won his fourth bracelet just a few days ago, Daniel Weinman (660,000), Hojeong Lee (585,000), and short stack John Evans (170,000). Weinmann also reached Day 2 of the $500 Housewarming event so may have to multi-table at some point, which is a nice problem to have.
Event #9: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Final Table Seat Draw
|2||Daniel Weinman||United States||660,000|
|3||Brad Ruben||United States||725,000|
|4||John Evans||United States||170,000|

|7||John Racener||United States||1,160,000|
|8||Kenny Hsiung||United States||1,605,000|
$10,000 Dealer's Choice Will Have a New Champion
The $10,000 Dealer's Choice event will have a new champion for the first time in four years because Adam Friedman was among the 62 players who started this event but failed to find a bag at the end of the night. Friedman, of course, won this even on three consecutive years.
Some 113 players bought in but only 51 punched their Day 2 tickets. Joao Vieira (425,000) is the chip leader going into Day 3, closely fllowed by Mike Gorodinsky (401,500). There is then some distance between the two leaders and Nacho Barbero (269,500) in third place.
As you would expect from such a highly specialist tournament, the field is littered with some of the biggest names in poker. Bracelet winners such as Richard Ashby (250,500), Jean-Robert Bellande (249,000), Jeff Madsen (181,500), Shaun Deeb (162,500), Yuri Dzivielevski (136,500), Brian Rast (109,000), Anthony Zinno (94,000), and 16-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth (87,000) are just a handful of names to look for in the PokerNews live reporting updates on Day 2 and beyond.
