The final day of the Main Event is here, and what started with a massive field of 1,502 has slowly worked its way down to just 13.

Today, the next Main Event champion of the 2022-23 WSOP Circuit tour will be crowned here at Harrah's Cherokee, and it might even be a repeat champion.

The remining filed is stacked with three-time ring winner Brad Albrinck leading the charge with 6,760,000 in chips.

Albrinck had a taste of Cherokee glory exactly six years ago on this date when he took down the Main Event for a career high $275,877 and he looks to top that score today. 

Behind Albrinck sits WSOP bracelet winner in Howard 'Mashie' Mash (pictured above) holds 5,380,000 in chips and looks to put his name back in the winner's circle since claiming his bracelet back in 2019.

Both Shae Quintin (5,140,000), and Brad Wilson (3,945,000) are in search to add their first Circuit rings to their resume's while Tyler Phillips (4,375,000) will try to claim his second Cherokee ring since taking down the multi-flight event back in 2019.

Outside the top five stacks sits Lithuanian crusher, Deividas Daubaris (3,835,000), who made his way over to the U.S. with the fiesta party after taking down the WPO Main Event for $115,499.

Another bracelet winner in Davd Moses (3,585,000), looks to improve off his eight-place finish from this past August in search for his first Main Event title.

Ring winner's Donovan Dean (3,075,000), Scott Hall (2,235,000), and Matthew Emmel (2,160,000), all look to maneuver their way to the top.

Ryan Van Sanford (1,570,000) holds the most rings out of the bunch with four, while Juan Mora (1,600,000), and Greg Dalton (1,400,000) look to climb the ladder in search for their first WSOP hardware.

Day 3 will resume with a local start time of noon. Play will pick up at level 28 where blinds will be 50,000/100,000/100,000.


Each level will be 60-minutes long and players will receive a 15-minute break after every two levels.


By the end of the day, we will have a new (or repeat) Main Event Champion, who will not only receive a WSOP ring, but the top prize of $365,963,
