Event #47: $1,000 Seniors Championship No-Limit Hold'em at the 2022 WSOP at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas is nearing its conclusion as the final 18 players begin Day 4 on Sunday at 11 a.m. local time at the Main Stage.
The original field of 7,188 entries over two starting flights has been cut down to just two tables and they will play down to a final five players who will come back for final-table action on Monday at a time yet to be determined.
All 18 players have already secured themselves an impressive $27,271 and the ladders will be coming hard and fast, with $694,909 being awarded to the winner along with the prestigious gold bracelet.
2022 Poker Hall of Fame nominee Kathy Liebert comes into Sunday as the chip leader with 21,000,000. A win in the Seniors Championship would give her a second bracelet and further validate her undeniable legacy on the felt.
However, there are plenty of players nipping at her heels, including Ben Sarnoff and Eric Smidinger, who each come into the day with 15,500,000.
Rounding out the top-five are Alexander Hill (12,500,000) and Argentina's Andres Korn (10,550,000), who is also looking for his second bracelet.
