WPT Venetian 2022: Anton Wigg Leading Post Day 1A


World Poker Tour (WPT) 2022 is running full steam at the Venetian Resort, Las Vegas. The Main Event (ME) flights which kick-started on 12th July will conclude on Sunday, 17th July 2022. The Day 1A flight of the ME had 176 entries locking horns to progress ahead in the tournament. From this player field, well-known player Anton Wigg has emerged as the chip leader.

Wigg sits with a stack of 751,000 chips and he is followed by Michael Brinkenhoff (546,000 chips) and Ljubomir Josipovic (486,500 chips). Defending champion, Chad Eveslage is also in contention and has the 10th highest chip stack of 271,000. It would be interesting to see if Eveslage spins the game in his favour and takes over the lead. 

Talking about the defending champion, Eveslage won a gold bracelet at the ongoing World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022. He won Event #8: $25,000 High Roller took home a pay cheque of $1,415,610. Jake Schindler ($874,915) was the runner-up and Josh Arieh ($616,047) came third in the High Roller event.

Coming back to the WPT Venetian 2022, the Day 1A flight had 40 surviving players who will battle it out with the survivors of the other two starting flights. The $5,000 buy-in flights will eventually see the players slogging hard for the $4 Million prize pool.
