Tony Miles Now Has Solid Lead With Three Remaining in WSOP Main Event

Only three remain in this year's World Series of Poker Main Event with Florida's Tony Miles holding the big chip lead.

Miles had endured personal struggles in recent years, making his Main Event breakout a personal comeback story as well. “I went through a period of my life where I was heavily addicted to opiates,” he told the WSOP. “Before that I struggled with alcohol addiction for years.” And that made it unlikely that he'd even be able to find a way to play the Main, but he gave it a try.

“I thought that I had been playing really well, so I reached out to some people that were really, really close to me and I asked them to invest, because I thought that I could make a run in this thing.”

Friday night was bitter sweet for 2009 WSOP Main Event champ Joe Cada, who dropped out in 5th place.  But before you shed any tears for the man, keep in mind he walked away with $2.1 million.

John Cynn and Michael Dyer both remain in this year’s event, which concludes tonight.
