Day 35 of the 2022 World Series of Poker at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas saw only three events in play but what a trio of tournaments they were. The final two flights of the exciting $1,000 Million Dollar Bounty concluded, leaving the surviving players with a chance of drawing a $1 million bounty prize, the $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship reached its final five, and the Main Event saw more than 1,200 fresh players enter the mix.

Another 1,245 Players Buy Into the 2022 WSOP Main Event
Day 1B of the 2022 WSOP Main Event is in the bag with the 1,245 entrants almost halved to 634 survivors after five levels of action at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas. The total attendance currently stands at 2,145 with two flights remaining. The interest in the Main Event is so great that the WSOP officials have made a change to the schedule in order to accommodate what could be record numbers.
Patrick Hagenlocher (lead image) of Queens, New York, finished Day 1b of the Main Event with 332,800 chips, which put him in first-place overall. Hagenlocher does not play many live tournaments but you would never have guessed that by the way he stormed to the top of the chip counts. This is the third time Hagenlocher has played in poker's "Big Dance" but he has never progressed further than Day 3. Perhaps that is set to change?
Bagging up a top ten stack were seasoned grinders Ognjen Sekularec (223,200), and Germany's Paul Michaelis (213,700), the latter being a WSOP bracelet winner.
As you can imagine, dozens of household names made it through to Day 2abc. Michael Gagliano (167,000), Dutch star Luuk Gieles (153,800), serial WSOP casher Roland Israelashvili (149,000), and Andre Akkari (126,600) each bagged up more than 125,000 chips with the average stack hovering over 111,000.
Eugene Katchalov (106,300), 2013 WSOP Main Event finalist Sylvain Loosli (99,600), Ben Heath (89,500), David Williams (65,900), Gianluca Speranza (55,100), Erik Seidel (53,500), and Vitaly Lunkin (24,900) also navigated their way through to the next stage.
Day 1c shuffles up and deals at 11:00 a.m. local time and should see an even larger number of player enter the fray.

$1,000 Million Dollar Bounty Wraps Up Its Day 1s
Event #68: $1,000 Million Dollar Bounty has progressed to Day 2 after both Day 1c and Day 1d concluded on July 4. Day 1c drew in a crowd of 4,269 players, with 232 progressing to Day 2. Day 1d, a turbo-structured flight, saw XXXX buy in for $1,000 but only XXX made it through to the business end of the tournament.
Joseph Cheong (2,415,000) bagged up the third-largest stack Day 1c. Cheong is a WSOP veteran with dozens of cashes plus a solitary bracelet. What Cheong would give to add to his bracelet collection.
David McGowan finished with 2,265,000 chips despite being down to six big blinds as the final two levels approached. McGowan, who called Chicago home, went on a heater of a lifetime and turned that short stack into a colossal stack of chips.
Ismail Abou Sharkh (2,800,000) finished as the flight's chip leader with Gabriel Schroeder (2,545,000) hot on Sharkh's heels.

Justin Bonomo busted from Day 1c of this event and jumped straight into the fourth and final flight. His decision to do so was vindicated because Bonomo bagged up an above average stack of 635,000 chips when the 22nd level concluded.
While Bonomo found himself in the middle of the pack, Michael Del Vecchio (1,750,000) and Ireland's Padraig O'Neill (1,500,000) have their names towards the top of the Day 1d chip counts. Leading the way from the turbo Day 1 is Jack Melki who turned their 40,000 starting stack into 1,490,000.

Dudani Holds a Massive Chip Lead in the $10K PLO Championship
Shiva Dudani (15,650,000) holds a commanding chip lead going into the fourth and final day of Event #69: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed Championship where only four players stand between him and poker gold. Dudani sits down with 130 big blinds, almost double that of second-place Michael Duek (9,405,000) who started Day 3 as the chip leader.
Tom Hu (7,330,000), Sean Troha (5,045,000), and Joachim Haraldstad (3,580,000) make up the rest of the final table. Each is guaranteed to take home $289,630 for their efforts but none of them will want that amount because the eventual champion scoops $1,246,770 and one of the most prestigious bracelets of the 2022 WSOP.
Play resumes at 2:00 p.m. local time on July 5 and continues until one man holds all 40,980,000 chips in play.
