Play was slow and steady on Day 1b of the Main Event at the 2022 World Series of Poker.

The marquee $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em World Championship event saw another slew of top players from around the globe. There were a total of 880 entries on Day 1b, with 634 advancing to Day 2. This brings the total number of entries so far to 1,780.

Atop the leaderboard is Patrick Hagenlocher (332,800) from Queens, New York. He has $87,082 in recorded earnings but he could be looking at a much bigger payday if his pace continues. He said he was in shock and gave a shout-out to his wife and daughter back home. He also wanted to dedicate this tournament to his other daughter Izzy, who passed away a few years ago.

"I feel like it could be (destiny)," he said. "This is my third time playing the main event. The furthest I went was deep in Day 3."

Last Hands of the Night

NicholasBaltz • Level 5: Blinds 300-600, 600 ante

The clock has been paused and the last hands of the night will be dealt before bagging and tagging.

Davies Lets It Go

Cottrellmkw • Level 5: Blinds 300-600, 600 ante

A player opened to 1,800 from early position and was called by Seth Davies on the button.

Both players checked through the {a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{a-Spades} flop to see the {9-Hearts} turn where the early position player led out for 2,500. Davies called to send the two players to the river.

On the {5-Diamonds} river the early position player bet 6,000 and Davies instantly mucked to put a small dent in his still large stack.

Former NFL star and three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Antoine Winfield had gotten his remaining 6,700 chips in from the cutoff and was at risk of elimination against a player in early position.

Antoine Winfield: {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Opponent: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

Winfield was looking to win the flip, and the board ran out {10-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{6-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{9-Spades} to secure his double-up and keep him in contention for the gold bracelet.

Zeng Gets There to Amass More

jeffmcmillan • Level 5: Blinds 300-600, 600 ante

The flop read {9-Clubs}{2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}. Linglin Zeng bet 2,600. She was raised all in by Leo Whitt to about 32,000. Zeng thought for a bit before saying "Alright I'll gamble with you" and called.

Leo Whitt: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}
Linglin Zheng: {a-Clubs}{10-Clubs}

Whitt was already standing up as the turn stayed safe for him when the {8-Hearts} came off. But the river did not stay safe as the {q-Clubs} binked off to send him out the door and give Zeng another haul to her growing stack.

Scully Rivers a Flush

mattohalloran • Level 5: Blinds 300-600, 600 ante

Action was picked up with {3-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{8-Spades}{q-Clubs} on the table and around 25,000 in the pot. Ryan Scully, the small blind had fired for 12,000, putting the action on his opponent in the hijack.

"These dealers are killing me today!" his opponent had exclaimed when the {q-Clubs} hit the felt on the river, loud enough to be heard several tables away. He shared his disgust at a club.

"So you put me on a club draw?" Scully asked.

"Either ace three or clubs — one or the other." After much deliberation, the opponent put in the call, already frustrated at the prospect of losing the pot. He turned over {a-Spades}{9-Spades} for two pair, and Scully showed him {3-Clubs}{5-Clubs}, just as he had predicted, giving Scully the flush. His opponent got up and walked away to cool off a bit, as Scully stacked up his new chips.
