2021 WSOP Main Event final table set

Only nine players remain in the 2021 World Series of Poker Main Event.

The final table really is the November Nine this years thanks to the lengthy delay in the start of the WSOP. What started out as a field of 6,650 players earlier this month had only 36 remaining at start of play on Monday before it was reduced to nine.

Who sit at 2021 WSOP Main Event final table?

All nine of the players from the final table will cash at least $1 million. Whoever outlasts everyone and is the last man standings will pocket $8 million to go along with the title of World Champion.

The chip leader heading into the final table is Germany’s Koray Aldemir. He holds quite a sizable chip lead with 140 million in chips, or 175 big blinds. His closest competitor is American George Holmes who sits second in chips with 83.7 million, or 106 big blinds. Both Aldemir and Holmes are after their first WSOP win and first WSOP bracelet.

There is only one player from the final table that has won a WSOP before. That would be American Chase Bianchi. He won that lone WSOP bracelet in 2016 in the $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em event. In that event Bianchi bested a 2,242-player field to cash $316,920. Bianchi will begin the final table seventh in chips with 14.1 million, or 18 big blinds.

The final table begins play on Tuesday and will play down until only four players remain. Those four players will return on Wednesday when a winner will be crowned and $8 million awarded.
