The World Series of Poker Main Event looked a little different this year because of Covid-19. The event still had the normal $10,000 entry fee but it was played online on WSOP.com and you had to be in Nevada or New Jersey to participate. The final table is now set and the remaining 9 players will play for the WSOP Main Event title on December 28th live on ESPN. The winner of the event will receive $1,553,256 for first place.
Joseph Hebert comes into the final table with a commanding chip lead (13,052,534) and more than double the amount of chips of the second place player Shawn Stroke (5,252,000).
Hebert (pictured above) has a total of $667,663 in lifetime tracked live tournament winnings.
Final Table Chip Counts
Upeshka De Silva is by far the most established player left in the field with more than 3 million dollars in live tracked tournament earnings. You may remember him from the 2015 WSOP when he battled with Fedor Holz in the main event and was put to the test in this famous hand:
Notable players that made a deep run but came up short in the 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event include: Dan Zack (11th) $77,832, Maria Ho (22nd) $35,194, Jason Somerville (32nd) $29,779, Joseph Cheong (33rd) $29,779, Freddy Deeb (46th) $22,334, Ryan Riess (47th) $22,334, Nick Schulman (55th) $20,304.
The remaining players have just two weeks to prepare for the final table at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino on December 28th. The first and second place finishers will both win at least 1 million dollars. The winner of this event will play the winner of the International WSOP event for an additional $1,000,000 and the World Series of Poker Main Event champion title.
