Our enormous field of 2,811 has been whittled down to the final 19. Today we will see 18 more eliminations on the path to crowning a champion. Atop the chip counts is 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Joe Cada with a stack of 1,869,000.

Cada has the opportunity to make history today. If he manages to win this event, he will be first first Main Event winner of the past decade to add a second bracelet to his wrist.

While Cada is most certainly the top story in the room, he is not the only one looking to make history. Cherish Andrews is the last woman standing in today's field and also one of the chip leaders with 1,383,000. Andrews is on a quest to attain her first WSOP bracelet and if she wins today she would be the first woman to win an open event since Vanessa Selbst won the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha event in 2008

The field is stacked with other notable names as well. Dwyte Pilgrim is still alive with 293,000 in chips. This is Pilgrim's eighth WSOP cash and while Pilgrim has several WSOP Circuit rings to his name, he is still hunting for his first bracelet. Two-time WSOP bracelet winner JC Tran is also still alive with a stack of 339,000.

Cards will be in the air soon as the final 19 vie for the next spot in World Series of Poker history. Follow along as we present you with all of the latest updates!
