In the last leg of the 2022 WSOP, today sees the start of the final live $5,000 buy in the form of Event #87: $5,000 Buy-in No-Limit Hold’em at Bally's and Paris, Las Vegas. This prestigious event sees star-studded fields come out to play for another shot at taking home a WSOP bracelet.
Last year saw Bulgaria’s Boris Kolev beat a field of 531 entrants, including Uri Reichenstein heads up, to claim his first bracelet and career best score of $511,184. To defend his title, Kolev will likely have to outlast a larger field because of the larger fields seen at the 2022 WSOP.
