Main Event final table down to six players, led by Michael Dyer…but former champ Joe Cada is still in.
The final table at the World Series of Poker Main Event in Las Vegas is now down to just six players – all Americans – following the elimination of Alex Lynskey, Antoine Labat and Artem Metalidi before the chips were bagged on Thursday night.
Leading the remaining contestants is Michael Dyer on 156,500,000, a massive lead almost double in chips compared with closest rival Nicolas Manion (72,250,000). John Cynn occupies the third slot on 61,550,000, followed by Tony Miles (57,500,000).
Former Main Event champ Joe Cada is still in the running, although he is one of the lower stacks at 29,275,000, and the low stack man at the table is Aram Zobian (16,700,000).
Thursday’s action kicked off with the shuffle up and deal call delivered by last year’s Main Event winner, Scott Blumstein. By the end of the first three levels the three eliminations had taken place and the action settled down.
