The nine players will return to the Rio in November to play for the $9.1 million prize. The delay is to allow next-day television coverage.

There are no big names -- none of the players has won a World Series of Poker Bracelet. The chip leader is an Illinois salesman, Dennis Phillips.

A Russian is in second. A Dane, two Canadians and four other Americans round out the table.
