Day 2 Completed
Day 2 Completed
Play has concluded in Day 2 of Event #3: $2,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em at the 2022 World Series of Poker at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas and ten players remain. They will return on Friday, June 3, to hunt for a WSOP gold bracelet and the top prize of $320,059.
Leading the way is three-time WSOP bracelet winner Scott Seiver, who holds the chip lead with 6,150,000, good for just over 61 big blinds. Seiver boasts one of the most impressive poker resumes of all time, with over $24 million dollars in lifetime recorded earnings, Seiver is considered by many to be one of the greatest poker players of all time, and a bracelet tomorrow will further solidify his reputation as one of the game's all-time greats.
Following him in the chip counts is David Goodman who bagged up 3,900,000 and Steve Zolotow on 3,125,000. Goodman knocked out Cord Garcia towards the end of the night to soar up the chip counts when Garcia’s pocket nines could not hold against the pocket fives of Goodman, who made a straight on the river. Zolotow, who at 77, ranks as the oldest player at the final table, possesses two bracelets of his own and a third bracelet will add to this former Mayfair Club member’s stacked resume.

Scott Seiver leads the final ten players into Day 3 of Event #3: $2,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold'em. A full recap will follow shortly.
Play has concluded for the day and will resume tomorrow at 2 p.m. with ten players remaining.
Shawn Daniels went all in for 830,000 from middle position. Scott Seiver called on the button and the rest of the players folded causing cards to go on their backs.
The board was of no help to Daniels as it ran eliminating him in 11th place.
Scott Seiver raised to 160,000 on the button and Jan Bednar moved all-in for 500,000 effective in the big blind, which Seiver quickly called.
The flop came out and Bednar could not best the pocket nines turned set of Seiver and Bednar left the tournament in 12th place.
Chris Hunichen raised to 120,000 in first position abd Dylan Linde responded by moving all-in for 1,300,000. Scott Seiver asked for a count in the big blind before moving all-in with the covering stack, folding out Hunichen.
The board ran out which kept Seiver's pocket kings in the lead and left Linde eliminated in 13th place.
Action folded to Chris Hunichen in the small blind who put Kelly Andrews all in for his final 200,000 chips. Andrews called blind but was ahead.
The board ran out eliminating Kelly Andrews in 14th Place as a pair of deuces was enough to win the pot for Chris Hunichen.
