GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The final table for the 2013 World Series of Poker main event is set to begin Monday. The top prize is more than $8.3 million. The other eight players will share $18.3 million. When asked how he would be preparing for the final table, Las Vegas nightclub host Jay Farber said his only plan was to go to Hawaii in two weeks. The 28 year-old entered the tournament for the first time last year and plays poker only as a hobby. The $10,000 buy-in tournament began July 6 with 6,352 entrants, slightly fewer than last year.

The final table begins Monday at the Penn and Teller theatre at 8pm. Admission is free to the public. A winner should be crowned by around midnight on Tuesday. The chip leader heading into the final table is veteran poker pro J. C. Tran.
