WSOP 2022: Shashank Jain And Neel Joshi Storm Into Day 3 Of Event #71


The Indian contingent at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2022 are pulling all the stops. One of the most popular tournaments at the WSOP—One More for One Drop event has Indian pros Neel Joshi and Shashank Jain making it to Day 3. At the end of flight Day 1C of Event #71: $1,111 One More for One Drop, Joshi bagged and tagged in the chip lead position and after an intense Day 2, the two have now made their way to Day 3 of the event!

Day 2 of One More for One Drop had 1,271 survivors battling from a player pool of 5,702. Held at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas, the event saw the two Indian pros rise through the ranks to survive the day and march ahead onto Day 3. Joshi had 543,000 chips at the end of Day 1C which was a little more than Day 1a chip leader Renmei Lui (445,500) and Day 1b chip leader Andre Cohen (456,000). This means that not only did Joshi lead the Day 1C survivors but all the survivors going into Day 2. At the end of Day 2, both Joshi and Jain are among the top stacks.

However, it’s the lion’s share of the prize pool worth $535,610 that players will be gunning for when the day begins.
