This is your 2009 World Series of Poker update from Gambling911.com for the 2 pm PST period as the field has been quickly cut down to 24. 

The last woman standing, Leo Margets, bowed out in 27th place.  No woman has ever made it to the final table of the World Series of Poker.

If the Final Table were to be determined at this time, Phil Ivey will have just missed the cut as he currently sat in the 10th position.  All eyes are on Ivey with the notion that his presence at the Final Table will result in a ratings bonanza for ESPN, not to mention the positive effect it would have on the poker community as a whole.

Jeff Shulman, CEO of Card Player Magazine, was really having an impact on this year's WSOP.  At the time of publication his chip count stood at 10,800,000. 

Iranian poker player Antonio Esfandiari and James Akenhead were still holding strong as well. 

The chip leader at press time was Absolute Poker player, Billy Kopp.  He takes over the top position from Darvin Moon. 

At the current pace we could have the November Nine decided prior to midnight.  Stay tuned to Gambling911.com.
