After two long days of poker just nine players remain in the $25,000 High Roller, one of the most prestigious events of the year. WSOP Main Event runner-up Josh Beckley leads the way with 2,1460,000 followed by one of Italy's finest, Dario Sammartino with 1,892,000.

Up until finishing second in the WSOP Main Event for $4.4 million, Beckley had never had a six-figure score, but today he can lock up his second seven-figure result, as the first prize is $1,142,100. Sammartino had his biggest result at last year's EPT Grand Final when he finished fourth in the €100,000 Super High Roller and sixth in the €25,000 High Roller for a combined €966,900.

Sean Winter, who comes into the day third in chips, won the 2015 Bellagio Cup for $562,772 and added three more six-figure scores last year, putting him at $2.4 million career earnings.

Nick Maimone, who finished 15th in the 2009 WSOP Main Event, looks to close one out after making two deep runs in side events this week. Russian pro Andrey Zaichenko is also among the contender, and he's shown he knows what it takes to win, capturing the EPT Prague High Roller title in 2014 for $606,924.

Two-time WSOP bracelet winner Brian Yoon has managed to make the final table as well, as did Chance Kornuth who finished third in the Main Event last year, Ben Heath and Anton Astapau, who's the short stack with nine players remaining.

The final table action will start at 12:00 p.m. and PokerNews.com will bring you all the live updates, chip counts and photos of this million dollar final table.
