Nacho Barbero Headlines Final Six on Day 2 of Event #67: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold'em

Nacho Barbero

After 30 levels of play on Day 1, just six remain from an initial field of 419 in Event #67: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty No-Limit Hold'em at the 2022 WSOP at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas. Leading those six is Argentinian poker pro Nacho Barbero. He will face stiff competition, however, from a stacked final table that includes two bracelet winners in the form of Andrew Lichtenberger and Rob Hollink as well as Women in Poker Hall of Famer Maria Ho.

Those well known poker names are joined by Ilya Nikiforov, sitting in second in chips and very much a contender for the bracelet, as well as Brazilian Fabiano Kovalski who, sitting on two big blinds, has his work cut out for him.

In general, the remaining players have very shallow stacks, with the average being less than 20 big blinds. That should make for a breakneck and entertaining pace of play.

Action resumes at 2 p.m. PDT today, Saturday July 2nd on the feature table in Bally's at which point the final six will play down to a winner. As always, the PokerNews live reporting team will be on site to provide comprehensive coverage as this event comes to a conclusion.
