CURRENT CHIP LEADER DENNIS PHILLIPS
They are down to the final table at the 2008 World Series of Poker. The current chip leader is a 53-year-old amateur from suburban St. Louis named Dennis Phillips. None of the remaining players has ever won a WSOP bracelet before.
The rules of the tournament have been changed this year. The final table of nine players will have to wait four months for their chance at the tournament’s top prize. This year’s winner will take home $9.12 million.
