And then there were 106. The 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event is almost under 100 players after five days of action, which is baffling to think that the second-largest field in history, or 8,569 players worth, started the Main Event and 8,463 players were already eliminated. Out of the 106 players that advanced to Day 6, one of them will become the next world champion and win $10 million. For the other 105 players, it will be nothing short of heartache and restless nights thinking about what could have been.
Along the way, the Main Event lost several notable players including Chainsaw Kessler, Mike the Mouth, Danielle Anderson, Galen Hall, Todd Brunson, Andrew Brokos, and former NFL player and Super Bowl Champion Richard Seymour.
