WSOP Finale Starts Today

Monday, 10 November 2014

Today will see the final nine players in this year's World Series of Poker Main Event begin their final fight for the champion's trophy.

Having been on a break since July 14, the November Nine will return to the Rio, Las Vegas, today and play down to three players before a winner is crowned tomorrow.

Leading the way will be The Netherlands' Jorryt van Hoof with 38,375,000 chips, but he'll be followed closely by Norway's Felix Stephensen.
