The 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event is down to a final table. Only nine players remain of a field of 7,221, all guaranteed $1,000,000 at this point.

Instead of a months-long hiatus like in recent years, this time play continues after just two days off. The November Nine is no more; the summer survivors return to the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino this evening to battle it out for $8,150,000 and the coveted WSOP Gold Bracelet.

The nine remaining players return to action today at 5:30 p.m. local time to commence the final table. When play gets under way, the clock will have 68 minutes and 30 seconds left in Level 37 (400,000/800,000 with a 100,000 ante). Play is scheduled to continue until six players remain, with Friday reserved for playing down from six to three. On Saturday, the three remaining players will play down to a winner.
