LAS VEGAS — The field of the World Series of Poker's Colossus tournament has been whittled down from 22,374 entries to a final table of nine players. Those nine players will return to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino on Wednesday at noon to play down to a winner. The first-place prize is $638,880 and a World Series of Poker bracelet.

Aditya Prasetyo leads the field with 39.3 million in chips, while Kenny Hallaert is a distant second with 18.6 million.

"This will be my second bracelet event final table," said Prasetyo. "My first was back in 2013 when I had a fifth-place finish in a $1500 NL bracelet event."

The final table is largely made up of professional poker players, with one notable exception: Anthony Blanda, the second-shortest stack at the table. Blanda has worked at Home Depot for the last 25 years, and he's thankful that his boss was in attendance on Monday afternoon and evening, because he now has the day off to play poker.

"It's like I'm on a cloud on another planet," said Blanda, who has $8,470 in career earnings prior to this tournament. "Luckily my store manager came here tonight; he saw I was playing and he said I can have the day off tomorrow."

Blanda, who is eighth with 4.6 million chips, has already locked up at least $67,681 for ninth place.

The tournament will resume at noon PT and will be live streamed on WSOP.com.
