Event $47: $1,000 Seniors Championship at the 2022 WSOP at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas Day 2 is now in the books after 12 hours of top-quality poker. The record-setting field saw 1,439 return for Day 2 of the original 7,188 entrants and that number has now been whittled down to the final 198. All remaining players have already earned at least a cash worth $4,703 but will be gunning for the $694,909 top prize, along with a shiny new bracelet as they attempt to punch a ticket into Day 4.

Leading the way is Ben Sarnoff who bagged an impressive 3,155,000 after a late-day surge. Nipping at the heels of the Day 2 chipleader is Valerii Lubenets with 2,810,000. Rounding out the top five stacks are Jan Pettersson (2,600,000), Mike Landers (1,995,000), and Patricia Devine (1,935,000).

Some other notables returning tomorrow include 2012 Seniors Championship winner Allyn Shulman (1,130,000), Ken Aldridge (965,000), Neil Blumenfield (650,000), Carol Fuchs (640,000), and Kathy Liebert (635,000).

Players will return for Day 3 on June 25 at 10 a.m. local time. They will play ten 60-minute levels with 15-minute breaks taking place after every two levels. They will take their 60-minute dinner break at the end of Level 29.

Blumenfield's Ace-Queen Stuns Ace-King

Nível 21 : 10,000/20,000, 20,000 ante
Neil Blumenfield
Neil Blumenfield

Neil Blumenfield, who finished third in the 2015 WSOP Main Event, opened from the cutoff and the small blind three-bet. Blumenfield shoved and the small blind called, resulting in a pot of 625,000 in the middle with Blumenfield covered.

Neil Blumenfield: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Small Blind: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

Blumenfield was far behind and was drawing to just three outs on the {7-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs} flop.

However, Blumenfield was able to find the {q-Hearts} on the turn, which had his opponent visibly and verbally fuming.

The {9-Clubs} completed the board and Blumenfield was given a second chance in the tournament.

Ives Scores Huge Double Knockout

Nível 21 : 10,000/20,000, 20,000 ante
David Ives
David Ives

We caught the action with three players, including David Ives who covered his two opponents. One player had over 400,000 in chips while the other had around 300,000.

Opponent 1: {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Opponent 2: {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
David Ives: {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}

The {9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{10-Spades} flop had Ives maintain his lead, though his opponents would pick up additional outs to a win.

The {6-Spades} turn changed nothing, while the {q-Diamonds} river gave Ives a full house and knocked out both of his opponents.

Liebert Enjoying Day 2 Sun Run

Nível 20 : 10,000/15,000, 15,000 ante
Kathy Liebert
Kathy Liebert

Even when WSOP champion Kathy Liebert isn't getting callers, she's running like the sun here on Day 2.

After turning 80,000 into over 1,000,000 in one level, she bet 55,000 from the hijack following an early position limp.

Everyone, including the limper, folded to Liebert, who showed us {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds} before putting them face up on the table.

Balzano's Aces Improve to Full Boat

Nível 19 : 6,000/12,000, 12,000 ante
Paul Balzano
Paul Balzano

Paul Balzano opened from early position for 27,000. He got a call from middle position before the button moved all in for 270,000. Balzano, with his opponent covered, snap called before the player from middle position got out of the way.

Opponent: {k-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Paul Balzano: {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}

Balzano already had his opponent crushed, but the {a-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop gave him a set, meaning his opponent would need running kings or running hearts to stay alive. Neither came though, instead the {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} runout paired the board, improving Balzano's set to a full house.

Lendvai Scores a Knockout

Nível 18 : 5,000/10,000, 10,000 ante
Tamas Lendvai
Tamas Lendvai

Action was picked up with around 60,000 in the pot and a flop of {6-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{6-Spades} on the table.

The button moved all in for around 120,000, telling Tamas Lendvai and the table, "I either read this way wrong or way right" as he moved his chips into the middle. Lendvai called so fast his opponent didn't even notice at first and began to give him a count. Lendvai quickly showed his button that he had, indeed, made the wrong read.

Button: {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}
Tamas Lendvai: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

The {j-Hearts}{k-Clubs} runout was of no help to the button, who was eliminated from the tournament, as Lendvai scooped the pot.

Quads For Abecassis

Nível 18 : 5,000/10,000, 10,000 ante
Michel Abecassis
Michel Abecassis

Corky Stott raised in early position. A player called in late position, before Michel Abecassis defended his big blind.

Then on a {5-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} flop, Abecassis checked and Stott pushed his last 100,000 chips. Abecassis was the only caller.

Corky Stott: {k-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Michel Abecassis: {j-Diamonds}{9-Spades}

With trips nines, Abecassis was pretty comfortable and the turn {9-Hearts} also gave him quads! The river {8-Spades} completed the board and Michel Abecassis eliminated Corky Stott.

The button whiffed on the {k-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{7-Hearts} runout, securing the pot for Possible and sending the button to the rail.

From a short stack this morning to one of the biggest stacks in the room six hours later, Marsha Wolak is just living the dream.

"I had 32,000 when day restarted, and now I've just counted 570,000, this is just one of those amazing days. I won absolutely all my all-in situations."

Wolak explained that on her first hand of the day, she played aces against kings and queens, to chip up to 100,000. "And from this moment, I never stopped winning hands."

After winning her first WSOP Gold Bracelet in the 2011 Ladies Championship Event, a bracelet that she wears on her right wrist, Marsha Wolak is ready to have a new one on his left wrist.
