Day 1 of Event #52: $2,500 Nine Game Mix at the 2022 World Series of Poker is over and Schuyler Thornton is the chip leader after ten levels of play bagging 220,400.

The collection of mixed game variants drew 456 runners and generated a prize pool of $1,014,600, from which the winner will receive the top prize of $219,799. The remaining 191 players will return on Saturday at 2 p.m. for Day 2 and the top 69 finishers will take home a min-cash of $4,018.

Among those trailing Thornton at the top of the leaderboard are Nick Guagenti with 209,200 in second place, Scott Bohlman with 208,200 in third place, David Williams is a very close fourth with 206,500, and Dane Coltman sits in fifth with 200,400.

Thornton is in search of his first WSOP bracelet and has cashed three times at the 2022 WSOP, including a run to 16th in the $2,500 Mixed Big Bet event. Guagenti, Bohlman, and Williams have all won a WSOP bracelet, while Coltman is looking for his first.

Other players that bagged for Day 2 include Chance Kornuth, Daniel Negreanu, Kimberly Stone, and Yueqi “Rich” Zhu. Negreanu finished Day 1 with 125,600, and he will return with an opportunity to make a run for his seventh WSOP bracelet. Stone finished 27th in the Ten-Game Mix at the 2015 WSOP and she returns with an eye on making a deep run. Zhu has already cashed seven times at the 2022 WSOP, including a third place finish in the $1,500 Limit Hold’em event.

Among those not moving on to Day 2 are Allen Kessler and Shaun Deeb. Kessler hit the rail when Phil Hellmuth made a straight to beat his pair of aces. Deeb registered late and was left short early when he surrendered a double to Justin Liberto’s flush.

Players will return at 2 p.m. on Saturday to pick up the action in Level 11 and play ten more 60-minute levels in the yellow section of the Bally's Event Center. The Day 2 survivors will return on Sunday for the Day 3 finale.

Final Three Hands

ChrisBean • Level 10: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

The tournament director has announced last three hands of the night.

Players who bag and tag will be returning tomorrow at Bally's Event Center in the Gold section at 2 p.m. local time.

Double Up For Szymaszek

ChrisBean • Level 10: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

With 8,500 in the middle on a flop of {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{6-Spades} the button bet the pot. Matt Szymaszek with only 13,000 behind moved all-in and was called by the button.

Matt Szymaszek: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}
Button: {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{8-Spades}{5-Spades}

The button was ahead with a pair of aces but Szymaszek had plenty of outs including the {5-Clubs} which came on the turn to give him two pair. The {7-Hearts} was redundant and Szymaszek gets a double up.

Bohlman Takes With Flop Bet; Thorpe Hiding the Big Chips

MattHansen • Level 10: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante
Mike Thorpe
Mike Thorpe

As the dealer was pitching the cards, Josh Arieh was observing "Crazy" Mike Thorpe's chip stack. Thorpe had his tokens arranged in his trademark "all mixed up and impossible to count" formation.

"What is that, like 70K?" Arieh asked.

"I'm hiding the big chips in the back!" Thorpe answered proudly.

Thorpe has an estimated 75,000.

No-Limit Hold'em

A player in late position raised to 3,000 and Scott Bohlman three-bet to 12,000 from the button. The blinds got out of the way and his opponent called.

The flop was {k-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} and late position check-folded when Bohlman fired another 12,000. Bohlman dragged another pot to move back near 200,000.
