7,319 players began the main event at the World Series of Poker with eyes on the top prize and coveted bracelet. After 2 weeks of gambling, nine players remain with the chance to win poker's biggest prize. The remaining nine players will wait 111 days before returning to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas for a ninth card session Nov. 6. The winner will be determined in a heads-up session between the final two players starting Nov. 8.
Jonathon Duhamel will be the chip leader once the final table begins. Duhamel has a 22,000 chip lead over the rest of the November nine. Should Duhamel be able to walk away the winner, he will become the first Canadien to ever win the main event at the WSOP
