The 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) has officially begun and the final table (FT) of Event #2: $100,000 High Roller Bounty is now set. Chance Kornuth who was among the 15 survivors progressing onto Day 2 is now leading the five players on the FT with the highest chip stack of 14,265,000.
Day 2 of the event saw some fast-paced action with many of the survivors being eliminated within the first few minutes of the game. Among the players who exited the action early were Laszlo Bujtas, Frank Crivello, and Bill Klein.
Kornuth started the day on an impeccable note as he scored a bug double up from Justin Young, the chip leader at the end of Day 1. This set the momentum for Kornuth to become one among the five players heading to the final table. He even eliminated Daniel Negreanu who’s a heavy-duty name in the international poker circuit. Kornuth has 143 big blinds at his disposal and is the strongest contender for the title.
Other players who made it to the FT are David Peters (second highest stack of 8,920,000 chips), 2021 Global Poker Index (GPI) Player of the Year Ali Imsirovic with 1,815,000 chips, Dario Sammartino with 1,740,000 chips, and 2021 WSOP Main Event winner Koray Aldemir with the shortest stack of 860,000 chips.
Out of the 46 players, only seven made the money. Nick Petrangelo was the unfortunate bubble boy of the event after his pocket kings were ruined by Phil Ivey’s pocket eights. However, Ivey also did not last long as he busted in the seventh position and took home $133,127 in prize money. The next player who busted was Matthew Steinberg who made his career best cash after earning $180,872 for his sixth place finish.
