On Monday night in Las Vegas and in the early morning hours on Tuesday on the East Coast, the 2019 World Series of Poker went down to the final three players in Las Vegas, Nevada. Two players were eliminated on Monday during play.

Kevin Maahs was the first player eliminated to drop the field from five to four. He picked up $2.2 million before taxes when he was eliminated.

For Maahs, poker is a hobby as he works a full-time job in Chicago, who also resides in the Windy City. He also had one previous WSOP cash before this main event.

Garry Gates — who opened play with the second-most chips to Hossein Ensan — was eliminated in fourth place. He received $3 million for his efforts in the tournament.

The Titusville, Pennsylvania native had 15 previous WSOP cashes before the Main Event. His first cash was in 2010.

“I don’t think it went wrong at all,” Gates said. “Finishing fourth place in the Main Event, you have to be kidding me. That’s a dream. Obviously, you hope it goes different, but I knew whatever happened [on Monday], this was the time of my life.”

The final table will begin on Tuesday night on ESPN at 9 pm EST. Ensan has a demanding lead in chips, while Alex Livingston is second and Dario Sammartino is third.

Ensan will bring 326.8 million in chips into the final day of the tournament. He also has 164 big blinds.

Livingston is second with 120.4 million in chips. He’ll also bring 60 big blinds into the final day.

Sammartino is third with 67.6 million. He also has 33 big blinds.

The winner of the tournament will take home $10 million. The second place finisher will receive $6 million, while the third-place finisher will take home $4 million.
