Bally's and Paris Las Vegas hosted the 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) tenth-day event. Various poker players entertained spectators as they used different strategies.
Leo Soma from France won the WSOP bracelet as six events in the series attracted thousands of players from different countries. The poker pro won $456,889 and a bracelet in the Event No.14 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em, after beating 2,392 opponents. It was his first WSOP bracelet in his professional career.
As Soma was eyeing the title and bracelet, Alex Foxen and Yuval Bronshtein also competed for other bracelets. The latter won the Event No.15:Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship, while Foxen had the most chips in Event No.16:#3,000 No-Limit Hold'em that had 75 players left.
Bronshtein's Hunt for the Third WSOP Bracelet
Yuval Bronshtein hasn't won a WSOP bracelet of late. But he was the chip leader in the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo or Better Event. He won a $1,500 No-Limit 2-7 Lowball tournament in 2019 and the 2021 $1,500 Limit Hold'em event.
Other players at the event's final table included Alex Livingston, Bart O'Connell, and Ray Henson. Yet, they failed to beat Bronshtein on the final day.
The play on June 9th night ended after O'Connell's demise, and it continued on June 10 at 4:00 p.m. as PokerGo cameras captured each player's moves. The event's chip counts were as follows:
- Yuval Bronshtein from Israel got 4,175,000 chips, equal to 26 big blinds

Foxen Is the Stack Leader on the $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Event's Day 2
Alex Foxen missed the 2021 WSOP because of the Coronavirus vaccination rules. But, he is making up for the time he lost. He had the highest number of chips as he advanced to Event No.16:$3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Day 3.
Foxen had to beat 74 opponents to win the WSOP bracelet. He had 2,070,000 chips in his chip bag, and they were 400,000 more than Niall Farrell's chips as he was second in the stack position with 1,610,000 chips. Adran Mateos, David Miscikowski, Arnaud Enselme and Stefan Lehner were among the top 10 finishers at the table.
Each remaining player was sure of winning at least $7,660, and it increased to $133,300 when five players remained. They would play for the cash prize on June 10, the $558,616 prize money, and the WSOP bracelet on June 11. The following were the event's chip counts:
