Event #89: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em

It's Fast, It's Furious and It Finishes Today; 44 Left in $5,000 NLHE Turbo

Kristen Bicknell starts the final day third in chips

From Nicholas Haynes' victory in Event #1: $500 Casino Employees Event back in May, we've now reached the final day of the 2019 World Series of Poker, officially the largest in history, both in terms of prize pools generated and total entrants.

Only a few bracelets remain, and as the final three in the Main Event play for $10 million and the chance to be crowned poker's world champion, 44 players remain in Event #89: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em with a little over $600,000 awaiting the winner.

30-minute levels mean the tournament should reach its conclusion later this evening, and all eyes will be on some of the big names still in the tournament. They include defending champion Phil Hellmuth who will have railbirds flocking to see if he can win bracelet number 16 should he still be in contention come the business end of the tournament.

Other notables include multiple bracelet winners Kristen Bicknell, Shankar Pillai, David "ODB" Baker, Joe Cada, Brock Parker, Mike Matusow, Michael Mizrachi, Eric Froehlich and Ryan Hughes.

Action gets underway at 12 p.m. so stay tuned to PokerNews as we bring you all the action.
