Labandeira Bags Big in Day 1 of Event #9: $1,500 Seven Card Stud

Manuel Labandeira

It was an exciting day of Stud action at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas in Day 1 of the 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Event #9: $1,500 Seven Card Stud. A day that saw a field of 329 smash the previous field from 2021 and create a prizepool of $439,215. At the end of fifteen levels of play, approximately 100 players advanced to Day 2.

Leading the pack of seven-card enthusiasts as the bell tolled at the end of the night was Manuel Labandeira of Madrid, Spain, who bagged up 281,500. He was spotted towards the last few levels of the night with a large amount of chips and was able to cross the finish line of the day as the leader.

Other big stacks to finish with over 200,000 included Daniel Weinman with 233,000 and WSOP Bracelet winner Kenny Hsiung with 204,500. Close behind, just a bit short of the 200,000 mark, was James "Mailman" Paluszek with 175,500.

There were several well-known players who bagged with some momentum. Alex Livingston had a solid day and ended with a few decent pots to finish with a healthy amount of 145,500. Likewise Tamon Nakamura also finished the day on the upswing with a stack of 139,500.

Some other well-known players to bag but on the shorter end of the chip count spectrum were Phillip Hui (60,000), Barry Greenstein (40,000), Ray Henson (31,500), and Hollywood actor James Woods (55,000) who lost a few big hands in the last level of the night.

Day 2 will get underway at 2 p.m. local time tomorrow in Bally's and will return to action in Level 16. PokerNews will be on-site all day long to capture all the action as the remaining players look to make a run at Day 3.
