Just when you think you can pause for a breath, the 2022 World Series of Poker kicks the games back into action. Now comfortable in their new digs at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas, things have become almost normal (including waiting for a part for the air conditioning for the Bally’s playing arena). With that normal brings another hectic day of action, including last year’s WSOP Player of the Year trying to rekindle a second run at the title.
Josh Arieh Leads Final Table of $25K High Roller PLO
Looking to start his run at a second Player of the Year award, possibly? Josh Arieh is setting himself up for that opportunity on Sunday. Arieh will be a part of the five-man final table in Event #19, the $25,000 Eight Handed Pot Limit Omaha High Roller tournament, but he has a bit of a mountain to climb if he is to do it.
Day Three chip leader Scott Ball was able to work his way to the final table also, but he will be the short stack with his 5.3 million in chips. Everyone is looking up at Austria’s Fabian Brandes, who has amassed 13.175 million in chips to have a comfortable advantage over the field. As anyone knows who has played Pot Limit Omaha, however, no lead is comfortable!
1. Fabian Brandes, 13.175 million
2. Josh Arieh, 8.9 million
3. Tong Li, 6.35 million
4. Sam Stein, 5.875 million
5. Scott Ball, 5.3 million
The five men are battling over the lion’s share of the $6.237 million prize pool. Everyone is assured of $342,590, but everyone also wants to be the one to capture the bracelet and the $1,467,739 first place prize.
