Bally's and Paris Las Vegas were full to bursting on Day 9 of the 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) thanks to seven events taking place in the venues' vast ballrooms. Three of those events crowned their worthy champions, while the surviving players in the other four tournaments are now within touching distance of some much sought after poker gold.
Ben Diebold (lead image) secured his first WSOP bracelet in one of the series' most challenging events. Diebold came out on top in Event #10: $10,000 Dealer's Choice 6-Handed Championship, a tournament that Adam Friedman has dominated of late. However, Friedman was out of the running on Day 1, meaning the event would have its first new champion in four years. That champion is Diebold.
Event #12: $50,000 High Roller has a champion and Jake Schindler is that man. There has been much controversy surrounding Schindler of late, but he allowed his poker playing to do the talking, and it worked because he found himself as the last man standing from a tough field. His reward? His first gold bracelet and $1,328,068 in prize money.
Michael Moncek says he had never played Limit Hold'em before but you would never have guessed because the Chicago native won Event #13: $1,500 Limit Hold'em. Moncek only bought into this tournament because it was the only event starting on the day. It turned out to be a fantastic decision on his part because he is now a WSOP champion and the recipient of $145,856.
Daniel Wellborn Leads Final 16 in the $1,500 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em Event
Only 16 players remain in Event #14: $1,500 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em and it is Daniel Wellborn (8,805,000) who is in pole position for this tournament's bracelet and $456,889 top prize. The day started with 159 players but they were whittled down to a more manageable field of 16.
Joining Wellborn on the final day are the likes of 2009 WSOP Main Event champion Joe Cada (5,645,000), Ronit Chamani (2,350,000), Mustapha Kanit (1,950,000) and Anson Tsang (520,000).
Play resumes at noon on June 9 and continues until the champion is crowned.

$10K Omaha Hi-Lo Reaches Day 3; Becker Leads
Germany's Johannes Becker came out on top of Event #15: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship as the 100 returning players were reduced to only 24. Becker bagged up 895,000 chips, putting him narrowly in front of the legendary Freddy Deeb (840,000).
The end of Day 2 chip counts read like a who's who of the poker world. Connor Drinan (675,000), Bryce Yockey (605,000), Yuval Bronshtein (595,000), recent bracelet winner Alex Livingston (485,000), and serial WSOP casher Roland Israelashvili (430,000) and still in the mix for this event's bracelet and the $440,757 prize that comes with it.

Day 1 of the $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Ends With Opie Top of the Pile
Triple Draw events lure in the biggest names in poker and this was certainly the case in Event #17: $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball. Some 309 players bought in but only 147 made it through the first ten levels.
James Opie, who has two WSOP cashes in non-Hold'em events, topped the chip counts with a stack of 196,500. Opie's stack kept the Australian mixed-game specialist Robert Campbell (177,000) off top spot.
Other luminaries safely through to Day 2 include Kenny Hsiung (173,000), Kimberly Stone (167,500), Patrick Leonard (128,500), Ari Engel (120,000), Brandon Shack-Harris (111,500), Marco Johnson (107,000), John Monette (100,000), and GGPoker's Daniel Negreanu (95,000).
