The WSOP's Event #32, the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E., is down to 15 live players from a starting field of 178. Among the last players are both Phil Hellmuth and Phil Ivey.
The World Series of Poker is approaching yet another spectacular final table, as Event #32, the $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. was reduced to just 15 survivors on Sunday night.
The event attracted 178 of the world's best poker players
, creating a total prize pool of $1,673,200.
While the event is one of the smallest so far in the 2012 WSOP in terms of runners, it is a major tournament in terms of prestige and the players who have signed up to fight for the bracelet.
With 15 players left, chip leader is John Monette, who has been extremely hot during the 2012 series with a bracelet win and a third-place finish.
Monette has 825,000 chips, which places him comfortably in the lead, ahead of David Bach, who has 645,000.
Also still in is Phil Hellmuth
in fourth place, sitting on a 571,000 stack. Hellmuth last week won his 12th golden bracelet and could now be on his way to making yet another remarkable result.
The following places are occupied by players like Matt Waxman, Abe Mosseri
, Dan Kelly, Scott Clements, Mori Eskandani, and another superstar, Phil Ivey
With three final tables already in this year's series, Ivey is perhaps the most watched player of all, although he has still to secure his first bracelet this year.
Should he manage to make it all the way to the top in Event #32, Ivey would collect his ninth WSOP bracelet, as well as he would propel his winnings from this year's series to well above $850,000.
