The $100K High Roller at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2023 is in full swing, with a lot of players busting out while quite a few manage to continue shining bright while fighting hard for the top spot. Let’s do a recap of how all the action unfolded on Day 2 of $100K High Roller at WSOP 2023.
The Event #29: $100,000 High Roller at WSOP 2023 had a star-studded final table, which earlier saw 35 players qualify from Day 1. They were joined by 15 more players who got in just before late reg ended.
This event smashed the previous year’s record, with the number of participants going up from 62 as WSOP 2023 saw a total number of 93 entries in the $100,000 High Roller. The highly anticipated tourney also saw the total prize pool of this event sit under $9 Million, with the winner set to pocket over $2.5 Million.
Some of the late entries included Phil Ivey, Andrew Robl, Chamath Palihapitiya, and Leon Sturm. The Event #23 $50,000 High Roller champion, alongside all the above-mentioned top players, failed to make a deep run on Day 2. Six-time WSOP bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu failed to bag for Day 2 and busted 44th. The first break of the day at this WSOP 2023 event saw the field being dwindled down to just 26 players while the money bubble loomed upon returning to the felts with just 14 places paid.
Stephen Chidwick was the first to bow out when hand-to-hand play began, while a couple of short stacks, which included Jonathan Jaffe, were at risk of not making money in this tourney. Jaffe was out next, which narrowed down the list to 14 players, who were all guaranteed themselves a min-cash of $171,034.
The likes of Koray Aldemir, Yang Wang, John Kincaid, David Peters, Kristen Foxen, and Punnat Punsri also fell just short leading to the official final table seeing eight players go ahead. While Justin Bonomo finished 7th, Adrian Mateos and Jeremy Ausmus are chasing the bracelet to up their tally. It remains interesting to see what Day 3 holds in store as the top prize is way too sweet to miss after all that slogging.
