- 2019 WSOP Main Event Top 10 Stacks After Day 1b
Day 38 of the 2019 World Series of Poker will be another busy day even though there are only two events in action.
The $500 SALUTE TO WARRIORS event resumes with just eight players left. Taylor Carroll holds a commanding chip lead followed by Susan Faber and Dean Yoon.
Meanwhile, the Rio Convention Center will be buzzing with a colossal Day 1c field of the WSOP $10,000 Main Event expected as it is the third and final opening day of the poker event of the year. Last year witnessed 4,571 entrants on the final opening flight and based on the over WSOP turnout so far; this year could be even bigger.
Here's what's on tap today, in the daily What to Watch For on PokerNews, sponsored by 888poker.
This event, which raised money for the United Service Organization (USO) and other military-related charities, took a day off yesterday in honor of American Independence Day.
The action resumes today at noon PDT with blinds at 100,000/200,000 and a big blind ante of 200,000. It will be broadcasted at CBS All Access in the United States, Canada, and Australia, and at PokerGO in the rest of the world starting at 1 p.m. PDT.
Taylor Carroll (13,000,000) enters the action with almost as many chips as his nearest two competitors Susan Faber (8,400,000) and Dean Yoon (6,000,000) combined. Carroll is a veteran himself as he retired from the United States Air Force in 2015 after spending the best part of six years at Barksdale Air Force Base performing maintenance on the B-52H bomber.
Also in the hunt for their first taste of WSOP gold are Chris Canan (5,600,000), Kulwant Singh (3,300,000), Uriah Grossglauser (2,200,000), Jose Annaloro (1,900,000), and Jordan Knackstedt (1,700,000).
