It was another wild and crazy day at the 2022 World Series of Poker at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas as Day 2d of Event #70: $10,000 Main Event World Championship has come and gone, as well as exciting action from another three events.
This year's edition of the Main Event flirted with the all-time record number of entrants but fell just short of breaking the 2006 mark when 8,773 players paid $10,000 to play. The lines to register for Day 2d were long, and when all was said and done, an additional 454 players took their shot, making the Day 2d field an astounding 3,749 players - nearly 1,000 players more than Day 2abc.
In total, 8,663 players created a prize pool of $80,782,475, with the winner getting an absolutely spectacular Main Event bracelet and a whopping $10,000,000 top prize. It was also confirmed that 1,300 players would be in the money and take home at least $15,000.
When the five levels of play of Day 2d were complete, Muhammad Abdel-Rahim finished the night as the chip leader with 936,500.

"I ran really well in the first two levels, and then I was coasting. I was card dead for the next two levels, but during the last level, I got kings vs ace-king for a huge pot," said Abdel-Rahim.
Not too far behind was Bryn Kenney, who dominated all day and bagged a very impressive 665,000. Kenney began the day with the #1 spot on the all-time money list but was surpassed by Justin Bonomo late in the night, who cashed a $10,000 High Roller elsewhere in Las Vegas.
Last year's Main Event champion Koray Aldemir is also very much in the hunt and will be bringing over 100 big blinds (255,000) with him to Day 3.

Boatman, Judah & Friedman Among #Event 72: $1,500 Mixed Omaha Final 23
A wild day of eliminations has left some familiar names from the poker history books to battle for a bracelet on Saturday, July 9 on the final day of the World Series of Poker Event #72: $1,500 Mixed Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better.
Hendon Mob co-founder and two-time WSOP bracelet winner Barny Boatman (2,480,000) and seven-time bracelet winner Men "The Master" Nguyen (2,480,000) hold two of the three biggest remaining stacks, trailing just Mark Erickson (2,580,000) for the chip lead.
Five-time bracelet winner Adam Friedman (1,190,000), will be looking for his second bracelet of the summer, and last year's third-place finisher in this event, Scott Abrams is still in the mix with 890,000. Another old-school legend in two-time bracelet winner Mel Judah has a competitive stack of 815,000 to work with. Two-time bracelet winner Rami Boukai will return with one of the shorter remaining stacks with 385,000. They'll all strive for the $195,565 first prize and that prestigious WSOP gold bracelet.

|9||Anthony Nguyen||United States||855,000|
|10||Mel Judah||Great Britian||815,000|
With 223 players returning Friday, the potential for a wild day of rapid eliminations was certainly there, and the action did not disappoint. Before the second break of the day, the field was already down to the 116-player bubble with no hand-for-hand play even needed as Michel Abecassis was busted by Anthony Nguyen to ensure everyone left earned at least $2,413.
Among those unfortunate to not cash were Daniel Negreanu, Sam Farha, Shaun Deeb, and last year’s runner-up in this event Hernan Salazar.
As for those still in the hunt Saturday, Boatman scored a huge double knockout late in the day to boost his stack amidst the leaders. While after dropping below 400,000, Nguyen rebuilt "masterfully" to finish with his healthy stack. Erickson helped with a knockout late in the day to ensure his spot atop the chip counts for Saturday's finale.
The event will be wrapped up in the green section of the Paris Ballroom at 2 p.m. Las Vegas time. Play will begin with Level 26 and as many 60-minute levels as needed to crown a champion.

Tournament director and Poker Hall of Fame nominee Matt Savage finished with 175,000.
A field of 383 players gathered in the Paris Ballroom, shattering last year’s mark by more than 70. Defending champion Brad Ruben did not make an appearance after surviving to Day 3 of the Main Event, but Daniel Negreanu, Shaun Deeb, Phil Hellmuth, and Player of the Year front-runner Daniel Zack all took a seat but saw their tournament come to an end on Day 1.
The remaining players will return at 2 p.m. Saturday, July 9th for Day 2. The first order of business will be to burst the money bubble. The top 58 players will earn a share of the $511,305 prize pool, guaranteeing themselves $2,413 for a min-cash.
