The final day of the 2019 U.S. Poker Open is upon us. In less than an hour, the US Poker Open $100,000 Main Event, a tournament that began with 33 entries (the same number as last year's Main Event despite doubling the buy-in), will get underway with the final nine players, each looking to capture the first-place prize of $1,320,000.
Leading the way is Chris "Big Huni" Hunichen, who hasn't had the most impressive series so far — just one cash for $59,000 — he's in a prime position to increase that number by at least five times, as a min-cash is worth $264,000.
Here's a look at how everyone stacks up in the final 9:
Additionally, David Peters, Nick Schulman, and Sean Winter are all still in it as well and are in contention for the US Poker Open Championship title, which comes with a trophy and $100,000 to the player who accumulates the most High Roller of the Year Points over the course of the series.
Winter currently leads that race and would lock up the title with a fifth-place finish or better, while Schulman needs at least second and Peters would need to win to secure the prize. Stephen Chidwick currently is tied with Winter for the lead, but Winter holds the tiebreaker over Chidwick with most money won.
Here's how things look on the overall leaderboard heading into the final day of play:
