One of the most-highly regarded mixed game contests of the 2022 World Series of Poker in its new home at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas is one step closer to awarding the elusive WSOP gold bracelet. Out of a field of 209 entries, only 22 players remain in contention to capture the title in Event #44: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship and the money bubble has already burst.

Several participants have already received a portion of the $1,948,925 prize pool but the biggest slice will be up for grabs on the remaining two days. The field size surpassed the attendance of the previous year by an incredible 60 entries and even pulled ahead of the 2019 edition, which drew 172 entrants.

Among the 22 hopefuls are 14 former WSOP gold bracelet winners and Bryce Yockey leads by some margin after dominating the late stages. He advanced with 1,465,000 and Eric Wasserson is the only other contestant with a seven-figure stack (1,025,000). Several other players are closely bunched together thereafter including Jerry Wong, Ben Lamb, Andrew Yeh, Eric Rodawig, and Mike Gorodinsky.

Eight of the top stacks belong to mixed game specialists from the United States while German poker pro and Vienna resident Ismael Bojang (750,000) and Aussie Poker Hall of Fame member Gary Benson (640,000) can also be found in the overnight top ten as well.

Other non-Americans still in contention include Paul Sokoloff, Andres Korn, Day 1 chip leader Philip Long, Eugene Katchalov, and Yuri Dzivielevski. Shaun Deeb will return as one of the shorter stacks and has 320,000 chips at his disposal.

Five female mixed game enthusiasts took part on Day 2 including Maria Ho as late entry, Esther Taylor, Carol Fuchs, Shirley Rosario, and Christina Hill. Out of the five, Taylor and Fuchs were eliminated not far away from the money bubble while Rosario and Hill came up shy of the three table redraw to bust in 26th and 25th place respectively for a cash prize of $17,669.

Further notable players in the money included Kosei Ichinose, Jeff Madsen, Mike Matusow, Robert Mizrachi, Paul Volpe, and Kristijonas Andrulis. The last player to leave empty-handed was Michael Parizon, who made two pair in a Stud Hi-Lo hand only for Katchalov to hit a seven-high straight and low for the scoop.

Some of those in a field filled with the biggest names in the world of poker that came and left without anything to show for on Day 2 were Phil Ivey, David "Bakes" Baker, Michael Mizrachi, Daniel Weinman, Dylan Linde, the 2019 WSOP Player of the Year Robert Campbell, Alex Livingston, and Anthony Zinno.

The reigning 2021 WSOP Main Event champion Koray Aldemir continued his mixed game exploits during the 2022 WSOP at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas. He experienced a roller coaster ride all day long and ultimately hit the rail on the final five tables only a few spots away from the paid places.

All remaining 22 players will return to their seats on the feature tables of the Bally's Event Center at 2pm local time on Wednesday, June 22, 2022. The penultimate day will aim to whittle down the field to the last five hopefuls throughout up to seven 90-minute levels. Recommencing blinds will be 10,000-20,000 in the flop games and limits of 20,000-40,000 in stud variants.

Stay tuned right here on PokerNews to find out who advances to the conclusion of this thrilling mixed game contest.

A Few Chips and a Chair for Dzivielevski

Omaha Hi-Lo

Yuri Dzivielevski had high cards and still settled for a split pot against John Racener in the third last hand. He then folded the penultimate hand before being in the big blind in the very last hand of the night.

Craig Chait raised from under the gun and John Racener three-bet from one seat over. It folded to the Brazilian who sigh-folded after some tank and headache, even glancing at Jerry Wong who joked "what do you have, quads?".

Chait bet the {j-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop and they checked the {4-Clubs} turn, Chait bet the {7-Spades} river and Racener called. Chait tabled the {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{2-Hearts} to win the low portion as Racener had {a-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{10-Spades}{5-Hearts} for the superior pair and inferior low.

Dzivielevski will be in the small blind with Omaha Hi-Lo to continue when the action resumes and the next pay jump awaits with 20 players remaining.

Deeb Scoops Kupin

zedmaster84 • Nível 17: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo

Without much drama in most stud hi-lo hands, the very last one on table 143 brought a boost to the stack of Shaun Deeb when taking on Aaron Kupin.

Shaun Deeb: {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} / {8-Spades}{a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Aaron Kupin: {x-}{x-} / {7-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{4-Clubs} / {x-}

Deeb bet sixth and seventh to get called by Kupin and flashed his set of eights, whether or not it that was rolled up was not apparent. Kupin had a potential low draw that bricked and Deeb asked him if he held two pair, deuces and fours.

No answer followed and Deeb raked in the pot.

Chait "Denied" a Full Double-Up

Seven Card Stud

Craig Chait: {x-}{x-} / {8-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{q-Hearts} / {x-}
Jerry Wong: {x-}{x-} / {q-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} / {x-}

Craig Chait had previously chipped up and then invested all but his final two T-5,000 chips against Jerry Wong. Without finding any improvement on the down cards, Wong folded and Chait more than doubled thanks to the additional antes on the table.

"I wish I could show a bluff ..." Chait said while he sent the cards towards the muck without showing his down cards.

Eric Wasserson, however, grinned and said "I am sorry that you didn't get the full double-up" to Chait after he had not been paid for the last 10,000.

Kristijonas Andrulis Eliminated in 23rd Place ($17,669)

Eric Rodawig: {6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} / {8-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{6-Hearts} / {x-}

Kristijonas Andrulis was all-in after third street and already meshed his first three cards to reveal a king-high. He was up against a pair of sixes by Eric Rodawig and caught no help at all until sixth, which left the Lithuanian drawing dead when Rodawig improved to a set of sixes.

Both flipped over their final cards for a mere second and Andrulis headed to the payout desk to collect $17,669 for his efforts.

Aaron Kupin led out on fifth street, leaving just 15,000 chips behind. Philip Long called, and called again after Shaun Deeb put Kupin all in.

Deeb bet again on sixth, producing a fold from Long and leaving the hand heads up. Deeb revealed his ace-high flush draw, while Kupin held a pair of eights. Deeb failed to improve, and Kupin tripled his stack.
