Welcome to an extra day in Event #86: $10,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em as six players return at noon local time here at the 2022 World Series of Poker at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas. There were 394 entries into the tournament to create a total prize pool of $3,674,050 and sixty of them got paid over the previous two days. But the lion's share of the kitty will be handed out today as the winner will walk away with one of the last WSOP bracelets on top of the first-place prize of $824,649.
Pavel Plesuv is leading the pack today with 6,890,000 which is worth a nice number of 69 big blinds at the start of the day. With over $5 million in live tournament cashes, he could come very close to the $6 million mark today. In second place you can find Gregory Jensen who finished in fourth place in Event #42: $100,000 High Roller No-Limit Hold’em for $571,896 which was his biggest career cash ever. Some loyal friends railed him throughout Day 2 which also included Galen Hall.
Following him in third place is Ali Eslami who won Event #36: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or Better for $135,260 earlier this summer to get him to over $1.25 million in just WSOP cashes alone. Eslami is coming back to the felt with 3,785,000 in his stack. Barak Wisbrod won the $1,000 Tag Team No-Limit Hold'em event back in 2019 and one of his team mates, Ohad Geiger was on his rail.
Joining those four players on the final table today are Lucas Foster with 24 big blinds and Brock Wilson with 21 big blinds. For Foster, this is the biggest live tournament cash for him but for Wilson a win today would also get him close to $6,000,000 in live tournament winnings.
