International Finalists Return to Vegas For WSOP

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nine card players from seven different countries are returning to Las Vegas this weekend in search of life-changing riches, the spoils of winning as much as $8.71 million at the World Series of Poker.

Three Americans, plus finalists from Belize, Ireland, Germany, England, Ukraine and the Czech Republic, topped a field of 6,865 entrants at the no-limit Texas Hold ’em main event in July and are returning Sunday to settle the title over two days of play.

The finale will play out nearly live on television for the first time ever, with ESPN airing the action with just enough of a delay to satisfy Nevada gambling regulators that the players won’t have any way to tell what their opponents are holding.

A champion will be crowned Tuesday night.
