Ongoing WSOP Main Event Action
Only 27 players remain in the WSOP Main Event as Day 7 begins on Monday. By the end of the day, we will have a final table of 9 players vying for a $8,150,000 first place prize.
Christian Pham starts the day leading the pack with 31,440,000 in chips. Pham won a WSOP bracelet in 2015 in the $1,5000 2-8 Draw Lowball No-Limit. Following Pham is Valentine Messina in second with 28,590,000, Jack Sinclair with 27,535,000 and 2011 November Niner Ben Lamb in 4th with 25,685,000. Marcel Luske is arguably one of the more famous players still alive, although he is short stacked with 2,990,000 in chips.
WSOP chip leader Christian Pham is the dude who accidentally reg'd for 2-7 draw lowball, having never played it, & won bracelet in 2015. 😂
