A field of 4,527 WSOP hopefuls is down to the final five in Event #8: $600 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack. The five remaining combatants enjoy the superstar treatment when play resumes today at 4 p.m.
The final table will play out from the feature table in the Amazon Room, and PokerGO begins delayed streaming coverage of the event at 5 p.m. The eventual winner takes home the first-place prize of $281,604.
That final player not only takes home the six-figure grand prize, but also their first career WSOP bracelet. Event #8 is guaranteed to crown a first-time WSOP winner.
The chip leader among the final five, Zhi Wu (46,100,000), returns with just under 30 big blinds in the stack. Play resumes at Level 40, with the blinds and antes at 800,000/1,600,000/1,600,000.
The final table plays out with 30-minute levels today until a champion is crowned. Right behind Wu in the chips counts are Chrishan Sivasundaram (31,500,000), Ryan Chan (29,200,000), Nicholas Zautra (15,000,000), and Ari Mezrich (13,900,000).
The $600 Deepstack played as a one re-entry event, and generated a $2,309,280 prize pool. Monday's Day 1 flight played down to 216 players, and went down to the final five on Day 2.
