Day 1 of Event #32: $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. at the 2022 WSOP at Bally’s and Paris Las Vegas attracted 773 players on Day 1. That figure is almost 200 more players from when Anthony Zinno won the same event in October 2021. At the end of this first day, only 264 players were able to bag chips and move on to Day 2. Another 148 eliminations are required on Day 2 before players reached the money.

A bunch of notable names entered this event, including Japan's Tamon Nakamura, who finished Day 1 in the envious position of chip leader. Nakamura built a 311,000 stack after 15 levels of play. The Japanese player has already cashed three times this summer, and he looking set for another in-the-money finish, or perhaps something much bigger.
