Nine players remain in the hunt for the $8million top prize and a place in the history books as the World Series of Poker Main Event reached its final table last night, with Germany’s Koray Aldemir in pole position.

36 survivors from the original field of 6,550 took their seats on day 7 of the annual Vegas biggie, almost $200k locked up but likely dreaming of much more, including that coveted gold bracelet.

Among them, Chance Kornuth, who got off to an incredible start...

Kornuth, at the centre of a mini-controversy earlier this week with an alleged angle-shoot, hit the top of the chip counts when he cracked Dennis Prydvor’s aces with ace-queen to send the Ukrainian to the rail.

A rivered ace also saw Kornuth see off Norbert Koh in 27th spot, but it was an almost identical hand to the previous pair that finally ended Chance’s own chances of Main Event glory...

A 4-bet shove was snap-called by Geroge Holmes and Chance was chasing, but the sweat was short-lived as the flop had him drawing dead...

Chance Kornuth: A♥ K♠
George Holmes: A♠ A♣

Flop: A♦ 6♥ 4♣
Turn: Q♦
River: 6♣

Out in 16th spot for $305,000, Kornuth was still upbeat as he took to Twitter...

Back on the felt, things were hotting up. There were numerous big hands clashing, exits aplenty and PokerStars pro Ramon Colillas was on the receiving end of some nasty river surprises, though his eventual departure in 14th spot for $380k was rather more mundane.

Not so for Sean Ragozzini’s bustout, the Aussie up against Colilass’ teammate, Argentinian rapper Alejandro “PapoMC” Lococo...

One more to go and the 2021 WSOP main Event final table would be set, and it was the commentator’s nightmare, Demosthenes Kiriopoulos, who would miss out, the Canadian pocketing $585,000 for an excellent run.

Germany’s Koray Aldemir takes a huge chip lead into the final table, with all nine having locked up a cool $1million, while Jared East, Chase Bianchi and Hye Park will all be looking to double up quickly.
