The final day of Event #76: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty gets underway today, November 16, at 2 p.m. local time. Yesterday's Day 1 saw 307 bounty hunters generate a $1,941,775 prize pool, and today, seven players will be playing for the lion's share of it.
Starting the day off in the top spot is Aditya Agarwal, who bagged the biggest stack by a wide margin with 8,750,000 chips. Agarwal performed solidly on Day 1, continually adding to his stack throughout the day, to sit down at the unofficial final table with the chip lead.
From there, he ended the final level with three eliminations to increase his chip lead; Agarwal hasa 55 big blind stack to start the day. Agarwal has his eyes set on gold and has put himself in a prime position to get it.
Barth Melius sits second in chips after being the only other player to bag over 3 million with 3,550,000 in chips. Sitting behind Melius is the only player at the final table who already owns some WSOP hardware, Stephen Chidwick, who sits third in chips with 2,600,000. Chidwick will be the only player looking to capture a second WSOP bracelet at the final table, but it won't be easy as action will be fast, and he sits with that stack worth only 14 big blinds.
The rest of the remaining seven players are all accomplished pros who have millions of dollars in live tournament earnings, and each is on their quest to claim their first WSOP gold bracelet.
