LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP, MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The World Series of Poker main event will have a new champion as the final 692 players guaranteed themselves a profit by lasting past the money bubble.

Players short on chips stalled and pleaded their way Friday in hopes of outlasting a few more opponents and seeing a return on their $10,000 buy-in in the no-limit Texas Hold 'em tournament.

Three players were eliminated from the tournament on the bubble, splitting $18,406 for 693rd place three ways and drawing a high card for a free seat to the event next year.

Zhen Cai of Lake Worth, Florida, won the seat after being eliminated with pocket queens to an opponent with pocket aces.

Huck Seed, the 1996 winner and last main event champion in the field, was eliminated earlier Friday.
