The World Series of Poker can get busy, but that doesn’t mean you should fall behind this summer. Keep pace with the non-stop action with Poker Central’s “WSOP Daily Brief.” Each day, we’ll highlight World Series news, poker’s biggest names, upcoming live streams, and more. Follow along and watch the 2019 World Series of Poker on PokerGO and CBS All Access all summer long.
Another Chance for Chance
A day after playing three hands at the $50,000 NLH High Roller final table, Chance Kornuth gets another shot at World Series of Poker gold. Kornuth bagged the $10,000 Short Deck No Limit Hold’em chip lead and he’ll be in pole position when play resumes at 6 PM ET. Seven players remain, including high stakes cash game professional Andrew Robl.
Robl only makes a handful of World Series appearances each year, but he was never likely to miss this one. The former online sensation is widely regarded as one of the best Short Deck players on earth. If Robl can play his best game today, with some luck on his side, he could walk away with his first WSOP bracelet.

More Than $13 Million
If you experienced the first Colossus at the World Series of Poker in 2015, you’d think the 22,000 record-breaking player mark would have stood for a long time. The Rio was packed and massive payouts were up for grabs for a microscopic buy-in.

Apparently, the WSOP wanted to break that record a few years later. After yesterday’s flights and some calculations, the $500 buy-in Big 50 NLH event total came in just over 24,000 players. That means an over $13,000,000 prize pool is up for grabs, with $1 million guaranteed for the winner. The Big 50 final table will stream live on Friday.
