After an exciting two days of starting flights, Day 2 of Event #47: $1,000 Seniors No-Limit Hold'em Championship is slated for a 10 a.m. local time restart at the 2022 World Series of Poker at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas.

This year's tournament has set records for the senior event, with 7,188 total entries between the two flights, generating a prize pool of $6,397,320. The final senior standing will take home the first place cash of $694,909 and the precious WSOP gold bracelet. 1,079 seniors will make the money, taking home a minimum cash of $1,600.

Of those 7,188 entries, 1,439 managed to bag chips heading into Day 2. American James Kennedy leads the way with the biggest stack at 452,000. He'll hope to continue his success from Day 1a in pursuit of the first bracelet of his career. Fellow American Ken O'Malley came away with the largest stack of Day 1b participants, at 363,500. O'Malley is in pursuit of not just his first career bracelet, but his first career cash in a WSOP event.

There are plenty of notable names returning for Day 2 as well. Women in Poker Hall of Famer Allyn Shulman will start the day with the fourth-biggest stack (361,500). Fellow Women in Poker Hall of Famers Kathy Liebert (225,000) and JJ Liu (175,500) will be returning to play as well. Seven-time bracelet winner Men Nguyen (83,000), as will six-time bracelet holder Jeff Lisandro (144,000). The defending champion Robert McMillan failed to bag on Day 1a, but returned to play the second starting flight, where he bagged his end of day stack of 115,500.

Play today will consist of 10 60-minute levels. They will begin at Level 12, consisting of blinds of 1,000/2,500 with a 2,500 big blind ante. A 15-minute break is scheduled for after every second level, with a 60-minute dinner break to be held after Level 19, expected to be around 7 p.m. local time. Those fortunate enough to survive Day 2 will return for Day 3, which will follow the same structure.

With Humberto Brenes in the big blind with just 15 big blinds behind, the small blind, who barely covered him, went all in.

Brenes took his time before wagging his finger and saying "Not today, my friend" before folding {k-Spades}{j-Clubs} face up.

The two-time WSOP champion has had a rough start to the day after beginning play with 107,000.

Bounahra Cracks Kings, Doubles Up to Nearly 350,000

Nível 13 : 1,500/3,000, 3,000 ante
Badih Bob Bounahra
Badih Bob Bounahra

Bob Bounahra, who finished in seventh place in the 2011 WSOP Main Event, opened to 7,000 from the hijack and the small blind three-bet to 21,500. Bounahra called.

The flop came {4-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{7-Spades} and the small blind continued for 40,000. Bounahra then raised to 110,000, leaving only 36,000 chips behind. The small blind believed that this was an all-in raise and said "call", turning over his hand.

The floor was called to address the situation and after about two minutes, it was ruled a face-up call and both players declared they would be in for Bounahra's final 36,000 chips regardless on the turn.

The {8-Diamonds} arrived on the turn and each player put in 36,000 chips to make it a massive 341,000-chip pot.

Bob Bounahra: {q-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Small Blind: {k-Spades}{k-Diamonds}

Bounahra was way ahead of the small blind's pocket kings with trip sevens and a flush draw.

The river brought the {3-Spades} and finally ended the lengthy hand, with the chips being shoved in Bounahra's direction.

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."

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.

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.
