Earlier this week, the World Series of Poker Main Event played down to the final table and last night, the final nine returned for the first of three days of final table action. After two days of waiting, Ben Lamb only lasted four hands, falling to the short stack of Jack Sinclair. After Lamb bowed out in 9th place, the biggest pot of the tournament shot Scott Blumstein into a commanding chip lead and while there was some back and forth between the rest of the short stacks, Sinclair was eventually eliminated in 8th place.

While last night’s session was supposed to play down to the final six players, play was halted early and that means that seven players will return to the WSOP Main Event final table. New Jersey’s Scott Blumstein still holds the chip lead but with four players sitting under 20 big blinds, there will definitely be some tense play from the start.

ESPN and PokerGO will begin coverage of the WSOP Main Event final table at 6 PM PT. Where to watch the Main Event final table can be found here and a rundown of last night’s action can be found here.
