The 2022 World Series of Poker continues at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas as the final day of Event #23: $3,000 Limit Hold’em 6-Handed is set to begin.
The tournament attracted 203 total entries to create a $568,710 prize pool, and after two days of battle, only nine players remain for the third and final day of this event. Michael Rocco holds the chip lead after bagging 1,675,000 chips at the end of Day 2. Rocco is a WSOP Circuit ring winner and has already cashed in 37 WSOP events, including a recent final table in Event #12: High Roller No-Limit Hold'em 8-Handed, but will be looking for his first gold bracelet in a stacked field of WSOP champions.
Some other notables to keep an eye on as the day unfolds include bracelet winners Jeremy Ausmus (1,170,000), Andrew Kelsall (1,145,00), and Shaun Deeb (715,000), who will try to add a fifth bracelet to his collection, as well as Gabe Ramos (1,100,000) and Mike Lancaster (970,000).
The action will get underway at 1 p.m. local time with the start of Level 21 and limits of 25,000/50,000, leaving not much room for the short stacks to play around.
The final nine have already secured at least $11,980 for their deep runs, but of course all have their eyes on the $142,147 top prize and the prestigious WSOP bracelet.
The levels will continue at 60-minutes in length with a 15-minute break after every two. Here is a look at the chip counts for the start of the day. A redraw will be done at 7 players for the unofficial final table.
