Day 1 of Event #31: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship at the 2022 WSOP at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas drew to a close after ten-levels and 11 hours of play with 43 of the original 102 entrants finding a bag for Day 2. The field could still grow, however, with late registration open until the start of play on Wednesday.

Leading the survivors is Oscar Johansson from Sweden with a stack of 293,000. Hot on his heels are Brian Hastings (292,000) and 2018 WSOP Player of the Year Shaun Deeb (286,000). Both Hastings and Deeb have five WSOP bracelets each.

The turnout for this year's event has already surpassed last year's total of 90 entries and, in doing so, generated a prize pool of $951,150. Though exact payouts will not be confirmed until the late registration period closes, the eventual winner of this event will receive over $200,000 in addition to a coveted WSOP gold bracelet.

As one would expect of a tournament with a $10,000 buy-in, the event attracted many notable players, including Jeremy Ausmus (250,000), who was the beneficiary of a huge four-way pot, and Phil Hellmuth (132,000) who entered late in the day but managed to spin up his stack quickly courtesy of making a wheel in two consecutive hands.

Big names to enter but not find a bag include Daniel Negreanu, Scott Seiver and Phil Ivey, the latter of whom brought an entire filming crew entourage with him to the event. Defending champion Brian Yoon was also unable to advance to Day 2, meaning a new winner will be crowned this year.

The remaining players return for Day 2 Wednesday, June 15th, 2 p.m. PST, and will play out seven levels of 90-minutes. Be sure to tune in as the PokerNews live reporting team will be on hand to provide coverage of this and every other event at the 2022 WSOP at Bally's and Paris Las Vegas.
