With just one day to go until the crowning of a new champion, to say that things are heating up in this year’s WSOP Main Event is an understatement. There are three players left out of the second-largest pool of players that started at over 8 000 hopefuls. The battle for the Main Event bracelet and the cash prize of $10 million awaits the winner.

Hossein Ensan is at the top of the leader board and has been going consistently strong for a while now. On days seven through to nine, he remained on top and increased his stack by over 50% and accumulated over 326.8 million.

Compared to Dario Sammartino’s 67.6 million and Alex Livingston’s 120.4 million Ensan’s winnings are a multiple of his opponent’s accumulations. In second place, Livingston is the next biggest mover of this round.

When Ensan is asked about his opponents and which he considers more dangerous, he replies that both are worthy opponents and that the leader board doesn’t mean much in poker. He goes on to explain that he might have an advantage when it comes to the chips but notes that during the previous round Gary Gates was in second, and he is now out – emphasizing his point.

Gary Gates, unfortunately, saw an end to his amazing run during this round and placed fourth. This may have been an emotional loss for the player, but fans literally stood by him and chanted his name in support of the player and congratulating a fantastic run as Gates made his exit.

At 5:30 pm on Tuesday (July 16th), the final three will return to the table to play until a champion is crowned. Anything is possible, the leader Ensan could bring home the title, or an underdog could surprise everyone – it’s not like it hasn’t happened before.
