There's only one day still remaining.The World Series of Poker Circuit season which began nearly ten months ago in Biloxi, Mississippi has come down a final day during which the final act of an exciting drama will be played out.Harrah's New Orleans will be the stage for three final scenes, which include the final three gold ring events of the season. Events 11 and 12 – both $365 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em tournaments will play to a conclusion. However, the big prize is the Main Event Championship which will return and finish up on a fourth and final day of competition. That will bring the final curtain down on the biggest and most successful season since the WSOP Circuit began in 2005. This $1,675 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em tournament which started on Friday with 762 entrants has been whittled down to just 11 survivors. Play resumes on Monday at 2 pm. We'll play until we have a new champion, expected to occur sometime on Monday night.This year's Main Event winner will earn $228,600 in prize money. The victor will also collect a gold ring. Moreover, the champion also receives an automatic entry into the WSOP National Championship, which is valued at $10,000. The WSOP National Championship is presented by Southern Comfort 100 Proof and will be played here in New Orleans later this week.But for the time being, most attention is focused on the Main Event and the 11 remaining players. Heading the highly-accomplished pack of competitors at the moment is Daniel Weinman, from Atlanta. However, given the wide disparity of chips in play, this coveted title is still very much uncertain.Just ask Rahul Deevara, who is also from Atlanta. He was chip leader coming into Sunday's second session. Nonetheless, Deevara suffered some setbacks on Day Two and ended up busting in 25th place.One chip leader from early on is still very much alive, and that's none other than local favorite Ben Mintz. The New Orleans-based poker pro currently stands in eighth place.At least two other players of note are Robert Cheung and Dan Schmietch, both WSOP gold bracelet winners. They are also among the final 11 who will play on Monday. Both are looking for a first gold ring to add to their jewelry collection. Another notable is gold ring winner in the final group is Tripp Kirk.Here's a look at the complete list of remaining players listed by chip counts:1 – Daniel Weinman – ATLANTA, GA – 2,560,0002 – Joseph Hebert – METAIRIE, LA – 1,995,0003 – Corrie Wunstel – BATON ROUGE, LA – 1,785,0004 – Rogen Chhabra – MADISON, MS – 1,675,0005 – Kasra Khodayarkhani – PLANO, TX – 1,300,0006 – Dan Schmiech – HOUSTON, TX – 1,290,0007 – Pavan Bhatia – PLANO, TX – 1,105,0008 – Ben Mintz – NEW ORLEANS, LA – 1,030,0009 – Robert Cheung – VANCOUVER, BC – 945,00010 – Luke Graham – PORT ST.
