Play has concluded on Day 2 of Event #17: $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball, at the 2022 World Series of Poker, and after 10 hour-long levels, it is Bariscan Betil who leads the remaining 17 players into the final day with 1,190,000. Betil, a native of Philadelphia, had just one World Series of Poker cash on his resume. It came as a result of a 44th place finish in this event in 2019. Now he has another at the WSOP's new home at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas.

Behind him are a plethora of bracelet winners and top pros hoping to dethrone him at the top of the counts and claim another piece of WSOP jewelry. Former November Niner Jerry Wong sits in second place at 1,140,000. Andrew Brown (1,010,000), Frank Kassela (750,000), Matthew Schreiber (740,000), John Monnette (600,000), and Alex Epstein (475,000) are also in contention.

Further down the leaderboard and heading to Day 3 on short stacks are Daniel Strelitz (425,000), Galen Hall (310,000), and WSOP veterans Steve Zolotow (135,000) and Ralph Perry (80,000). Hall admits he had never played A-5 or Badugi before this event but has navigated his way to the final two tables.

Day 2 began with 134 players remaining out of a starting field of 309. The first goal of the day was to make it to the money, a feat that eluded the likes of Scotty Nguyen, Shaun Deeb, and Brandon Shack-Harris. Once the bubble burst and the final 47 players were in the money, Day 1 chip leader James Opie (45th), Robert Campbell (37th), German soccer star Max Kruse (36th), and Daniel Negreanu (33rd) would all find themselves making the walk to the payout desk.

A $164,243 first place prize awaits the winner on June 10. Play resumes at 2 p.m. local time inside the Bally’s Event Center, so stay tuned to PokerNews for all the live updates and chip counts until a new champion is crowned.

Betil Helps Brings the Field to Three Tables

dsalituro • Level 20: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante

2-7 Triple Draw

Jesse Hampton raised, then called when Bariscan Betil re-raised.

Hampton took two and raised a bet, leaving himself 30,000 behind. Betil called and they got the rest of Hampton's chips in the middle after the second draw.

Both players stood pat. "8-6 perfect," Hampton said.

He thought he won the pot when Betil showed his card before realizing that Betil had 7-6.

The 18 remaining players are now redrawing for the final three tables and will play 10 more minutes on Day 2.
