411 On The 41st (WSOP): Playing 21 At The Poker Players Championship
May 31, 2022
Three days of play have now been completed at Event #2 of the World Series of Poker, the $50,000 buy-in Poker Players Championship, and the original field of 116 players has been reduced down 21.  Despite all the time at the table, 5 more players will still need to be eliminated with nothing to show for their work when play resumes today, and even those lucky enough to not be one of those five, still have a surprisingly long road to ride before reaching this year’s $1.5 million plus top prize and their chance to hold the Chip Reese Memorial Trophy.

One of the main things that makes getting through these final 21 extraordinary challenging is the overall skill of the group, as the name implies after all this is the Players Championship, with some of the best players around the globe competing.  Some of the top names still in the field at this point include Kirk Morrison, Andy Bloch, John Juanda, Lyle Berman, Erik Seidel, David Oppenheim, Nick Schulman and both Mizrachi brothers, with Robert in sixth place overall and “The Grinder” leading the field with close to 1.5 million in tournament chips.

Some of the unfortunate players that saw their events come to an end during Day 3 include our own Barry Greenstein, Sorel Mizzi, Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, Jeff Lisandro, Justin Bonomo, Phil Ivey and the “Godfather of Poker” Doyle Brunson.

Day Four of the $50,000 buy-in, 8-game mix Poker Players Championship, begins again at the Rio today (5/31) at 3 p.m., for more information or to read the highlights from the day powered by PokerNews, visit
