Chance Kornuth Leads Star-Studded Final Five in Event #2: $100,000 High Roller Bounty at the 2022 WSOP

Chance Kornuth

Day 2 of Event #2: $100,000 High Roller Bounty at the 2022 WSOP at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas saw fast-paced action that narrowed down a field of 16 to 5.

Play lasted just five levels with a flurry of eliminations within the first few minutes of action, including Laszlo Bujtas, Frank Crivello and Bill Klein.

Chance Kornuth began what turned out to be a day-long heater with a huge double through day 1 chipleader Justin Young, courtesy of a rivered straight. From that point on, he seemed unstoppable, eliminating the likes of Daniel Negreanu and Matthew Steinberg, ultimately bagging a stack of 14,265,000 good for 143 big blinds. Other players returning for Day 3 include David Peters (8,920,000), Ali Imsirovic (1,815,000), Dario Sammartino (1,740,000) and Koray Aldemir (860,000).

Day 2 Recap

Of the initial 46 runners only seven were paid and it was Nick Petrangelo who was the unfortunate bubble boy with his pocket kings being cracked in brutal fashion by the pocket eights of Phil Ivey. It was Ivey who was the first finisher to get paid, his seventh place finish good for $133,127.

The relatively unknown Matthew Steinberg was next out, scoring a $180,872 payday, blowing his previous best cash of $2,125 out of the water.

That saw the table reach the final five players who will return Thursday, June 2nd at 1pm PDT for Day 3. The final day will be livestreamed on PokerGO on a 1-hour delay. Pokernews will also be providing updates on the same delay as the tournament plays down to a winner, who will receive a WSOP Gold Bracelet and $1,166,810 for their efforts.

Aldemir Doubles Through Kornuth

Chance Kornuth raised from early position to 200,000. Action folded to Koray Aldemir in the cutoff who shoved his remaining 305,000 into the middle. The other players got out of the way to send the action back to Kornuth who called to put Aldemir at risk.

Koray Aldemir:   
Chance Kornuth:   

Aldemir was in a good position to double up and avoid bursting the bubble. He did just that, fading Kornuth's outs on the       runout to get back to just above starting stack.

Battle of the Big Stacks

Since David Peters joined Chance Kornuth atop the chip counts, the two haven't been afraid to mix it up with each other a bit on the bubble.

After Kornuth opened to 160,000 in early position, Peters called in the cutoff.

On a flop of    , Kornuth continued for 170,000. Peters then methodically cut out a raise and put forward 460,000 chips.

Daniel Negreanu

After Phil Ivey opened in early position and Chance Kornuth called in middle position, Daniel Negreanu moved all in on the button for almost 1,100,000.

David Peters took some time in the big blind before folding, then Ivey folded to Kornuth who made the call, putting Negreanu at risk.

Daniel Negreanu:   
Chance Kornuth:   

"Kid Poker" had Kornuth dominated, and remained ahead on the     flop.

Kornuth picked up a flush draw on the turn with the  , and on the river, the dealer dropped the  , prompting Negreanu to drop his vlogging phone, as the card ended the Poker Hall of Famer's day just two places short of the money.

Cary Katz

Koray Aldemir opened to 135,000 from the button and Cary Katz three-bet to 370,000. The big blind folded to send the action back to Aldemir who decided to move all in. Katz had less than half his original stack behind and made the call to put himself at risk.

Cary Katz:

Katz was behind but had live cards. The       did improve him to two pair but Aldemir held the better two pair to send Katz packing. The remaining nine players have now been consolidated to one table.

Peters Eliminates Young with...Ten High?!

David Peters

A short-stacked Justin Young put 240,000 of his remaining 350,000 chips in from early position and was only called by David Peters in the big blind.

On a flop of    , Young put forward the last 110,000. Peters didn't seem thrilled but couldn't pass up the chance to collect Young's $25,000 bounty. Little did he know he'd love to see what he was up against.

Justin Young:   
David Peters:   

Young had managed to pick up both flush and gutshot straight draws, but Young's ten-high was ahead and would stay that way as the dealer laid out the   and   to complete the board, eliminating the Day 1 chip leader. That was, as Peters said, "one of the dirtiest bounty collections you'll ever see".

Negreanu Put to the Test

Daniel Negreanu

Chance Kornuth raised from under the gun to 120,000. Daniel Negreanu, who had been slowly slipping down the chip count since the start of day 2, called from middle position. The remaining players got out of the way to send Negreanu and Kornuth heads up to the flop.

On a flop of     Kornuth continued for 125,000. Negreanu flatted.

The   turn saw Kornuth lead out again, this time for a chunkier 430,000. It was not enough to shed Negreanu who called once more.

The board paired on the   river. Kornuth announced all in to send Negreanu into the tank. After burning through at least one time extension, Negreanu laid down his hand to send a healthy pot Kornuth's way.
