WSOP 2022: Paawan Bansal’s Dream Run At The Salute To Warriors Comes To An End

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 has been proving to be a fairly good one for the Indian contingent. Several Indian pros, who are grinding at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas have cashed at multiple events. Most recently it was Pawaan Bansal and Muskan Sethi who made it in the money at Event #54: $500 Salute to Warriors.

Bansal, who was leading the pack of 498 survivors at the end of Day 1, exited early on Day 2. He came in with the highest stack of 842,000 chips (70 BB) at his disposal. However, the pro busted at the 200th spot after putting up a good fight. He left with a pay cheque of $1,277 from this $500 buy-in event. 

On the other hand, Sethi, who was also grinding at this event, got eliminated at the 202nd spot. She also added $1,277 to her bankroll for this finish. The popular poker rp had qualified for Day 2 with 340,000 chips (28 BB).

Bansal and Sethi were the only two Indian survivors who had qualified for Day 2. Additionally, Bansal’s chip lead and experience made him a potential candidate to win this event. However, with their elimination, India’s hope of getting a WSOP gold bracelet home from this event remains unfulfilled. 

The inaugural event of the Salute to Warriors was held in 2019. This year marks the third edition of this event. It donates a certain percentage of the buy-in to the veteran-related charities, thus giving players an opportunity to make a difference. In this instance, $40 out of the $500 buy-in will be donated. With an entry field of 3,209 entries, this event has successfully generated a prize pool of $1,315,690, out of which 482 players made it in the money. The event is currently underway with 35 players fighting for the top spot. The first-place finisher will take home $161,256 along with the title and the coveted WSOP bracelet.
