It’s hard to believe the summer has come and gone as we embark on the final day of the 2019 World Series of Poker. The sounds of ruffling chips that have filled the convention center at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino over the last seven weeks has now transformed into the sound of scissor lifts scurrying across the floor, and tables being broken down.
In just a few hours however, the final stretch begins. The Amazon room will be packed full of Canadians, Germans, and Italians as Hossein Ensan, Alex Livingston, and Dario Sammartino return to battle it out for the title of world champion and $10,000,000.
Last night was exciting as short stacks rose, big stacks fell, and those three inched closer to completing the ultimate poker dream. Kevin Maahs was the first to hit the exit last night, followed by Garry Gates in fourth. Below is a collection of some of my favorite images from last nights play, which easily has been the most animated and emotional of the summer. Can’t wait for tonight!
