Joseph “Kolebear” Herbert holds a massive lead in the US Bracket final table of the 2020 World Series of Poker Event. He has more chips than the combination of the chips of the two closest players behind him, a whopping 13,052,534 chips.
Over the course of the last two days, the online section of the Main Event took place via WSOP.com, with a selection of 705 players on Sunday – Day 1, which generated a prize pool of $6,768,000. Only 71 players made it to Monday – Day 2, which birthed the final nine table.
In the final nine-handed table, everybody gets a guaranteed sum of at least $98,813, with the top two finishers earning over a million dollars and the winner going home with $1,553,256.
The final table will be held at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, in Las Vegas, on December 28, with all nine players being contacted and made preparations for by the World Series of Poker organization in order to ensure no one is left out on the D-day.
In line with the Covid-19 regulations, all players will undergo a Covid-19 test before being allowed to compete. All one whose test comes out positive will be excluded from the game but will receive the minimum prize available, which in this case is the prize for the ninth position.
In Europe, the live final table of the World Series of Poker Main Event (International Bracket) is scheduled to hold at the King’s Casino, Rozvadov, Czech Republic, on Tuesday, December 15. This will see one single player emerge as a winner, as expected in any poker tournament, but that winner’s run in the World Series of Poker Main Event competition has not come to an end. The winner of the International Bracket will be scheduled to take on the winner of the US Bracket in a winner takes all head to head matchup.
This will see the winner take an extra one million dollars on whatever they had already won in their individual tournament bracket. The winner will automatically be named the World Series of Poker Main Event champion, earning him the remarkable Main event bracelet.
The winner takes all head to head match is scheduled to hold at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas, on December 30, just two days after the winner of the US Bracket emerges. In the case where the winner of the International Bracket is not up to 21 years of age in line with the legal gambling age in the US, the head to head matchup will be held in another country with a lower legal gambling age, most likely somewhere in Europe.
