The Final Seven Are Set to Return at 2 p.m.


Seven players remain in Event #43: $2,500 Mixed Big Bet at the 2019 World Series of Poker and cards will be in the air at 2 p.m. local time in search for a new WSOP champion. Leading the pack is Ryan Hughes. Hughes missed out on his third bracelet after finishing runner-up in this exact event last year. Hughes lost the heads-up against Scott Bohlman and he won't encounter Bohlman in this tournament anymore this year as he finished in 8th place.

Arthur Morris and Jonathan Depa are the only players in the tournament who are at the final table without a bracelet. Depa finished the first day on top of the counts and he made it to the final table fourth on the leaderboard. Morris sits in second place right behind Hughes and could be winning his first WSOP bracelet in this event.

Phil Hui, Joseph Couden, Mike Sexton and Loren Klein are all still in the mix and they could add another bracelet to their collection. Hui came close already this series when he reached the final table in the $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. event and he finished 7th in the $10,000 Dealer's Choice event.

Cards will be in the air at 2 p.m. local time so make sure to keep refreshing PokerNews for all the latest updates as the winner emerges from the final seven to be crowned as World Series champion.
