Final Table Chip Leader Adam Miller

40 players returned to Parkwest Bicycle Casino today with hopes of becoming the next WSOP Circuit Main Event champion. Every player in attendance had made it through one grueling day of poker, and if everything went their way they would make it through another.


After 12 hours of play, what had started as a field of 40 slowly made its way down to 9. While all 40 players that made Day 2 finished in the money, only the following nine players made the final table: Andy Garcia, Win Nguyen, Adam Miller, Michael Lo, David Carter, Payman Arjang, Hong Xing Wang, Andrew Merrick, and Daniel Brown.


Although they would walk away with some cash in their pockets, the following players of note failed to reach the final table: Stewart Scott (14th place), Flight A chip leader Kfir Kabalo (21st place), Edward Liu (23rd place), and Anthony Denove (37th place).


With the swiftness of eliminations throughout Day 2, players and staff at The Bike wondered whether today was the day we would crown a new Circuit Main Event champion. When only nine players remained, everyone knew at the very least that we would see some final table action. At times it seemed the tournament would only last a few more hours, at other times it felt as if all of Day 2 and Day 3 would be needed for a winner to be declared. Ultimately, after 12 hours of action, the tournament director called an official stop to play with only three players remaining.


Here are the final table results so far:


4th Place - Win Nguyen - $28,010 5th Place - Andy Garcia - $20,740 6th Place - Michael Lo - $15,635 7th Place - Payman Arjang - $12,101 8th Place - Daniel Brown - $9,395 9th Place - David Carver - $7,495


Tomorrow, Hong Xing Wang, Andrew Merrick, and final table chip leader Adam Miller will return to The Bike, with only one of them leaving as the latest Circuit Main Event champion. Here are where the chip counts currently stand:


1) Adam Miller - 3,625,000

2) Andrew Merrick - 2,690,000

3) Hong Hing Wang - 1,345,000


Tomorrow, Wednesday, December 14th the three remaining players will return to The Bike and will clash on the felt until a new WSOP Circuit Main Event champion is declared. Cards will be in the air at 1 P.M., be sure to follow along right here on WSOP.com to see who will become our newest champion.
