Daniel Negreanu
Daniel Negreanu suffered a nasty beat against David Peters

The 2022 World Series of Poker has been one that Daniel Negreanu would probably like to forget, especially after the way he was sent to the rail on Friday afternoon in Event #50: $250,000 Super High Roller No-Limit Hold'em.

On his second bullet — $500,000 invested in the tournament — he entered Day 2 with less than half his starting stack. But he quickly built it back up and appeared on track to make a run. And then he ran into one of his toughest hands in what has been a frustrating summer for the poker legend.

Cruising in the $250k, Is 2022 Phil Ivey's Best WSOP Ever?

Phil Ivey

It's not a matter if, but when will Phil Ivey become just the second player ever to win that elusive 11th World Series of Poker gold bracelet. Perhaps, he's just a day away, especially if he continues to dominate Event #50: $250,000 Super High Roller No-Limit Hold'em.

Ivey's been stuck on 10 since 2014, tied for second with Johnny Chan and Doyle Brunson. He still has his work cut out for him to catch Phil Hellmuth, who holds the record with 16 WSOP titles. But it's clear now that he's as focused now to win bracelets as was in the 2000s.

Final Five Have Eyes on the Top Prize in Event #46: $5,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em

Stephen Song

Welcome to the final day of Event #46: 5,000 6-Handed No Limit Hold'em. The final five players will arrive shortly to Bally's and Paris Las Vegas where they will battle it out at 2:00 p.m. for the grand prize of $771,765 and to be crowned the latest WSOP gold bracelet winner.

Leading the way in chips is American, Stephen Song. Song has one WSOP bracelet from the 2019 WSOP in the $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em event and will be looking to add another one to his collection. With over half of the chips in play, he has a good shot to take the title.

After a long three day grind, his opponents will definitely not make it easy on him as they face off today and try to take the chip lead from Song to pave their own way to victory. The remaining four players at the final table, Tamer Alkamli (8,710,000), Jonathan Pastore (5,959,000), Elio Fox (5,635,000) and Paraskevas Tsokaridis (2,590,000) are very much still in it and a few double ups could have anyone of them taking down the title.

Play will resume in Level 30, with 25 minutes left on the clock and blinds at 100,000/200,000, from the main stage in Bally's Convention Center. The stream will be available for viewing through YouTube live stream on the PokerGO channel, on a one-hour delay.

Stay tuned in to PokerNews for all the live updates on what will be an exciting finish to this event.
