Day 1 Completed
Day 1 of Event #2 $100,000 High Roller Bounty at The 2022 WSOP at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas came to a close after 12 levels of play. As expected, the event drew some of poker’s biggest names with a total of 45 entries, which was whittled down to 15 by the day’s close.
Justin Young had a good stretch of play during the middle of the day, winning two key flips against Chris Hunichen and Laszlo Bujtas. He then enjoyed a late surge and will enter tomorrow as the chipleader with 3,500,000, thanks in large part to winning a huge pot against Alex Foxen during the last level of the night with his set of kings besting Foxen’s set of jacks.
