A week and a half ago, the World Series of Poker built a place in the middle of the desert where the world’s best and the world’s most hopeful could compete for poker’s most coveted prize. When registration closed, 6,352 players had put down $10,000 for a chance at a WSOP Main Event bracelet.
Tonight, nine of those players remain. After a marathon Day 7 at the Rio hotel, the WSOP has set its November Nine.
At 2:30am Monday morning local time, former champion Carlos Mortensen busted out in tenth place, leaving his fans disappointed, but making way for these players in November.
