After five full days of action, there are now just 106 players remaining from the 8,569 that entered the 2019 World Series of Poker main event.
The second-largest turnout in the tournament’s history has built a prize pool of $80,548,600, and the remaining players are all now guaranteed at least $59,295.
One of the remaining 106 will become this year’s world champion, earning the one-of-a-kind main event gold bracelet and the top prize of $10,000,000.
The runaway chip leader going into day six is Timothy Su (pictured above) with 19,235,000.
Su knocked out Brian Yoon late in the day, with his AA besting the pocket kings of Yoon to send the three-time bracelet winner to the rail in 111th place.
This was Yoon’s second consecutive deep run in the big dance, having finished 41st in 2018 for $189,165.
