Chad Holloway talks to 2020 WSOP Main Event Final chip leader Joseph “KoleBear” Hebert about his experience coming into the World Series of Poker and why this is so precious to him.
On Monday, the surviving 71 players from a 705-entry field returned to battle for one of nine coveted spots. It took less than seven hours of play for the lineup to be set, and now those players will have to wait until Monday, December 28 to play down to a winner live in Las Vegas.
Each player is guaranteed $98,813 in prize money, but each is looking to take home the $1,553,256 top prize, which also provides them the opportunity to compete for an additional $1 million and the gold bracelet in a heads-up showdown against the winner of the GGPoker international portion of the WSOP on Wednesday, December 30. The runner-up will also become a poker millionaire as $1,002,340 is set aside for second place.
Leading the pack with more than twice his nearest opponent is Joseph “kolebear” Hebert, who hails from Metairie, Louisiana. Hebert has 41 career WSOP cashes totaling $344,297, the majority of which has come on the WSOP Circuit.
