The massive 13,070-strong Event #7 WSOP $565 COLOSSUS No-Limit Hold'em field has been whittled down to just nine players, all vying for the lion's share of the $6,535,000 prize pool and the gold bracelet. In addition to the most desirable jewelry in poker, the winner will also walk away with the $1,000,000 top prize.
With the elimination of Matthew Silva, who ran ace-queen into the pocket aces of Joel Wurtzel to depart in 10th place, the Final Table is now set. Leading the way is the virtually unknown Las Vegas native Sang Liu with a massive stack of 18,205,000.
