The last day of PokerGO streaming at the World Series of Poker before the start of the Main Event on July 8th is highlighted by nine players who are all vying for their first ever bracelet. Argentinian Norberto Korn leads the way, and together with second placed Thomas Boivin they hold nearly half of all chips in play.
The action starts live on PokerGO at 1:30 pm PST/4:30 pm ET/10:30 pm CET.
The remaining nine players are guaranteed a $53,615 payout, while the eventual winner walks away $618,285 richer. The chip counts coming into the final table are as follows.
As nobody at this final table has a bracelet win, one life will be changed forever by what will transpire today. The lack of bracelet wins however is no indication of a lack of experience, as Thomas Boivin, Marton Czuczor, Mike Sowers, Pete Chen and Andy Spears have been in similar situations before.
Chen has the biggest title coming into the final table, winning the WPT in Beijing earlier this year for $300,000, beating a field of 400 players. Here’s an overview of the biggest results of the nine finalists coming into today.
