Event $47: $1,000 Seniors Championship at the 2022 WSOP at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas Day 2 is now in the books after 12 hours of top-quality poker. The record-setting field saw 1,439 return for Day 2 of the original 7,188 entrants and that number has now been whittled down to the final 198. All remaining players have already earned at least a cash worth $4,703 but will be gunning for the $694,909 top prize, along with a shiny new bracelet as they attempt to punch a ticket into Day 4.

Leading the way is Ben Sarnoff who bagged an impressive 3,155,000 after a late-day surge. Nipping at the heels of the Day 2 chipleader is Valerii Lubenets with 2,810,000. Rounding out the top five stacks are Jan Pettersson (2,600,000), Mike Landers (1,995,000), and Patricia Devine (1,935,000).

Blumenfield's Ace-Queen Stuns Ace-King

blaisebourgeois • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante
Neil Blumenfield
Neil Blumenfield

Neil Blumenfield, who finished third in the 2015 WSOP Main Event, opened from the cutoff and the small blind three-bet. Blumenfield shoved and the small blind called, resulting in a pot of 625,000 in the middle with Blumenfield covered.

Neil Blumenfield: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Small Blind: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

Blumenfield was far behind and was drawing to just three outs on the {7-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Clubs} flop.

However, Blumenfield was able to find the {q-Hearts} on the turn, which had his opponent visibly and verbally fuming.

The {9-Clubs} completed the board and Blumenfield was given a second chance in the tournament.

Covert Doubles Up on Small Pair

mattohalloran • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

The preflop action folded around to Ron Covert in the hijack. He moved all in for 300,000, and got one caller from the button, who had him covered.

Ron Covert: {a-Spades}{5-Clubs}
Button: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}

Covert was behind, but that changed quickly when the {5-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} flop gave him top pair and a gutshot. "That's good for you," Kathy Liebert told him from the seat directly to his right. The {k-Spades} turn changed nothing, as did the {8-Diamonds} river.

Covert let out a loud "YES!" as the river hit the table, before raking in the pot and doubling his stack.

Hagar Wins The Flip; Hill Made A Good Laydown

veunstyle72 • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante

After a raise to 55,000 from Alexander Hill in early position, David Hoote announced all in for 235,000 in middle position. It was Danny Hagar's turn to act and he quickly announced all in for almost 800,000.

Alexander Hill thought about it for a moment before folding face up, revealing {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}. Then it was to showdown for the two all-in players.

David Hoote: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Danny Hagar: {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}

The dealer brought a {6-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} board on the table and Hoote lost the race. He's eliminated while Danny Hagar is now sitting over a million in chips.

Burri Finally Got Weinstein

Erika Weinstein
Erika Weinstein

Erika Weinstein is part of the last eliminations. Her last hand, she played it with only 100,000 chips in front of her. Thomas Burri called to try for the knock-out.

Erika Weinstein: {3-Clubs}{3-Spades}
Thomas Burri: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

The board came {5-Spades}{k-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} and Weinstein could not do anything, she was eliminated.

"But the big pot came earlier, against this same player. I had ace-queen, I raised to 4,800 and he moved all in for 260,000. I finally called, he had ace-jack and hit a jack! After that, I survived as long as I could", she commented.

Ives Scores Huge Double Knockout

blaisebourgeois • Level 21: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante
David Ives
David Ives

We caught the action with three players, including David Ives who covered his two opponents. One player had over 400,000 in chips while the other had around 300,000.

Opponent 1: {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Opponent 2: {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
David Ives: {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}

The {9-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{10-Spades} flop had Ives maintain his lead, though his opponents would pick up additional outs to a win.

The {6-Spades} turn changed nothing, while the {q-Diamonds} river gave Ives a full house and knocked out both of his opponents.
