27 Players Left In WSOP Main Event

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) is reaching its end, after having hosted a wide variety of different events for the past couple of months. The series has shown the world who is still on top of the different poker variants and boosted many players bankrolls significantly.

The most sought after event is by far the main event, which is considered the world championship of poker, with its $10,000 buy-in and all the best players in the world competing at the same place. 

A total of 6,240 players paid the buy-in to compete for the title of the best Texas Hold’em poker player in the world this year, but now only 27 is left to compete for the first prize of $7,680,000, which is more than a great pay day for any poker player.

The competition is still very tough however, as Joseph McKeehen, Justin Schwartz, Blake Bohn and Daniel Negreanu is amongst the last 27 players. The chipleader is Thomas Kearney, who is a regular player on WSOP.com in the $1/$2 and $2/$4 NL hold’em games.

The players will come back later today to continue their quest to play down to the November Nine and secure their spot on the final table in November. It will be interesting to see if Daniel Negreanu can continue his good form or if he will be outplayed by some of the other pros at the table.
