The highly awaited World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2023 kick-started on 31st May amid mighty expectations from the player fraternity. Sin City is all prepared for the biggest poker show on the planet, with players from all across the globe already in action in the tournament series. One of the most talked about competitions in the series right now is Event #3: $1,000 Mystery Millions.
This event kick-started on the first day of the tournament series with a total of 2,023 entries pushing the prize pool of $1,800,470. Amongst all the entries, the last 304 players will pocket money with min-cash at this event sitting at $1,062.
Poker pro Paawan Bansal was grinding in this event. However, things didn’t pan out well for him, as he was busted out at the 143 spot. The Indian poker pro failed to progress to Day 2. Many other notable players, including Farah Galfond, Jim Jeffries, Dan Shak, and Josh Arieh, Barry Shulman, Lexy Gavin-Mather, and Vanessa Kade, failed to make it past the qualifying flight. The abovementioned list also features former Jamie Gold and Ryan Riess, with the pair being WSOP Main Event Champions earlier.
The money bubble was formed rather quickly (at Level 17), which saw fast and furious eliminations later on. With three final flights left to be played, players still stand three more chances to qualify for Day 2, which will begin on 1st June. Players who make it to Day 2 will stay in the hunt for the mystery bounties and the guaranteed top prize of $1,000,000.
Currently, United States’ Francis Anderson is leading the pack of survivors from Day 1A. Anderson will battle it out with 2,750,000 chips on Day 2. He will be looking to add yet another title to his resume, with more than $2,000,000 in live cashes in his account.
