Today, 14 players are back to try to win the ultimate grail: the WSOP gold bracelet in Event #58: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better at the 2022 World Series of Poker. All these players are guaranteed to win at least $12,458, but all eyes will be on the first-place prize of $289,610 to the champion.
Richard Crooks has been dominating this tournament, bagging second in chips on Day 2 and is the chip lead after Day 2. Peter Neff was following him closely on day 1, and is still right behind him. While the story of the tournament seems to be about Crooks and Neff, bracelet winners like Joey Couden, Jerry Odeen, and Jared Jaffee are still in the running as well.
