Wednesday, 6th-8th June. 2022 WSOP Day #7-9
Now that the 2022 WSOP is into the swing of things, the bracelets are coming in thick and fast with the last three days of action awarding 6 live bracelets and 2 online.
Among the bigger names to earn themselves some bling were Manig Loeser, Chad Eveslage, and Alex Livingston. The last of these managed to promptly lose his bracelet within 20 minutes of the presentation ceremony.
All eyes were on event #10 where Adam Friedman was in the running to take the event down for an unprecedented fourth time in a row. Friedman won the $10k Dealer’s Choice event in 2018, 2019, and 2020. Unfortunately, he hit the rail before the money bubble broke allowing Ben Diebold to go on to steal the gold a few days later.
The other big news of the last few days has been the outbreak of COVID. Phil Hellmuth and David “ODB” Baker have both gone down with the virus.
There is no vaccine mandate in place this year and those who are vaccinated will be coming to the tail end of their booster’s effective life. Throw in a few new strains of the virus and a game that involves passing cards and chips from person to person, and we can probably expect something a bit rougher than the Rio flu this year.
Please stay safe out there.
