LAS VEGAS (AP) — A club promoter and eight poker professionals are back in Las Vegas to compete in the World Series of Poker main event and lay claim to the $8.4 million prize that goes to the winner.

Seven players will become millionaires at the no-limit Texas Hold 'em final table that runs Monday and Tuesday nights. The first player eliminated will take home only the $733,000 paid to all nine who made the finals in July.

That's when the tournament began with 6,352 players, before whittling down to nine through seven days of play at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

On Monday evening, the finalists will again don hoodies and sunglasses and take their seats amid the blue and red lights of an ESPN set crafted within the off-Strip casino.
