Day 7 ready for action at the WSOP Main Event

15 November 2021

Welcome to Day 7 of the 2021 World Series of Poker $10,000 Main Event, which begins on Monday, 15 November at 12 p.m. PT at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Just 36 of the 6,650 entries remain in the hunt for their quest to be crowned the 2021 World Champion of Poker. That field of 36 will be whittled down to just nine players following today's play.

Those who have successfully navigated through six days of Main Event action have already locked up a six-figure payday of $198,550 but of course, everyone will have their eyes on the aforementioned title and the $8 million first-place prize.

A total of $62,011,250 has been generated for the prize pool and the United States' Hye Park is in pole position to receive the lion's share of the winnings. The New Jersey resident has 21 cashes at the WSOP and further five on the WSOP Circuit. His efforts under the WSOP umbrella has resulted in $239,553 in earnings and one WSOP Circuit ring, which came in July in the WSOP Summer Circuit Event #8 - $50,000 GTD NLH Deep Turbo 2x Re-entry for $14,398.

Park's rise to the top of the chip counts came after the dinner break on Day 6, where we would go on to knock out Jon Shoreman and Gabriel Sack in back-to-back hands. The chip leader then sent Jason Osser to the rail after both players flopped a pair of aces and got their chips in the middle. Park's ace-queen held versus the ace-jack of his opponent to reach 21 million in chips.

PokerStars Player Championship winner and Day 4 chip leader Ramon Colillas also finds himself in a good position to make the final table. It would be quite the story for the Spanish national who was a relative unknown in the poker world until he won the world's largest $25,000 buy-in poker tournament of all time. To put into perspective, Colillas has $5,247,716 in live earnings from 24 recorded cashes, with his largest payout being $5.1 million.
