Only five high-stakes players remain in the first High Roller event on the 2021 WSOP schedule. Event #6: $25,000 High Roller No-Limit 8-Handed played down to the final five players during Sunday's Day 2 action.

Going into Monday's final table, Tyler Cornell (7,455,000) leads the field on the chip leaderboard. Cornell and his fellow competitors will vie for the $833,289 first-place prize as Event #6 plays to a champion.

The other four players still remaining include names like Michael Liang (5,140,000), Jonathan Jaffe (3,650,000), Mustapha Kanit (2,630,000), and Adrian Mateos (2,180,000).

Day 2 Action

The late registration period for Day 2 ended right before play began at 2 p.m. local time Sunday. Four late entries brought the total number of players that started the day to 58.

Those 58 players competed for 21 money spots. The money bubble burst about five-and-a-half hours into Day 2, with Chance Kornuth's elimination sending the remaining players in the money.

Frank Funaro (13th - $51,866) and Jason Koon (9th - $79,834) were among the unluckiest players to exit the Amazon Room on Day 2. Funaro left the tournament after his pocket kings were cracked by Kanit's pocket queens.

Koon made it to the unofficial nine-handed final table, and was one card away from doubling up against Liang. Liang found a one-outer on the river, however, and Koon's quest for his first career WSOP bracelet came to an end.

Other final table finishers included Adam Hendrix (8th - $100,773) and Paul Newey (7th - $128,654).

Finishing just short of the final table were Jared Jaffee (11th - $63,976), Darren Elias (12th -$51,866) and Day 1 chip leader Jake Daniels (14th - $45,382).

A total of 139 entries brought the total prize pool to $3,283,875. The final five players from that field will all earn six-figure paydays.

The final table will be streamed on PokerGO Monday, with the start time for Day 3 action set for 4 p.m. Stay tuned to the PokerNews live blog as the $25,000 High Roller champion is decided!

Mohammad Arani
Mohammad Arani

Tyler Cornell raised it up to 125,000 on the button and Mohammad Arani stuck in the last of his 475,000 chips from the small blind. Cornell asked for a quick count and then made the call to put Arani at risk.

Mohammad Arani: {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}
Tyler Cornell: {a-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}

The flop of {q-Spades}{5-Clubs}{4-Hearts} left Arani in the lead but the {8-Hearts} on the turn quickly changed all of that. The river was the {6-Spades} and Arani was eliminated in sixth place.

The final five players will now bag up their chips and return to the feature table on Day 3.

The action folded to Mustapha Kanit on the button who made it 125,000 to go. Tyler Cornell re-raised to 500,000 from the small blind and Kanit called.

The flop came {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} and Cornell led out for 250,000. Kanit called and the {10-Spades} landed on the turn. Both players checked and the {10-Hearts} paired the board on the river. Both players checked again and Cornell flipped over {a-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} to scoop the pot.

Liang Takes Down a Three-Bet Pot

[user339872] • Niveau 17: 30,000-60,000, 60,000 ante

Mustapha Kanit opened to 125,000 in the hijack and Michael Liang three-bet to 430,000 out of the small blind. Kanit called and the dealer spread the flop of {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}.

Liang continued with a bet of 240,000 and Kanit stuck around to see the {4-Clubs} on the turn. Liang counted out another bet of 730,000 and Kanit finally pitched his cards into the muck.

Paul Newey was down to just 340,000 chips and he shipped all in from middle position. Tyler Cornell asked for a count on the button and then made the call. Once both of the blinds folded, the two hands were tabled.

Paul Newey: {a-Spades}{3-Spades}
Tyler Cornell: {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}

The flop of {7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} gave Newey a pair of threes but it wasn't enough to overtake the pair of sixes of Cornell. The {2-Clubs} on the turn and the {8-Diamonds} on the river changed nothing and Newey was sent to the payout desk.
