A club promoter and eight poker professionals are back in Las Vegas to compete in the World Series of Poker main event and lay claim to the $8.4 million prize that goes to the winner.
That's when the tournament began with 6,352 players, before whittling down to nine through seven days of play at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.
On Monday evening, the finalists will again don hoodies and sunglasses and take their seats amid the blue and red lights of an ESPN set crafted within the off-Strip casino.
