WSOP MAIN EVENT DOWN TO FIVE

#LFGGG!

Last night the World Series of Poker Main Event played from nine players down to five. PokerStars’ own Garry Gates remain right in the thick of things, ending the night second in chips with 171M, trailing only Hossein Ensan’s 207M.

Garry Gates: Still second with five left

Rounding out the final five are Kevin Maahs (66M), Alex Livingstone (45M), and well-known Italian high roller Dario Sammartino (23M). They’ll return to blinds at 600K/1.2M (1.2M).

Our man Howard Swains is at the Rio covering the incredible event, which now sees all remaining players guaranteed $2.2M (there’s $10M awaiting the winner).
