Rory Mathews

Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino and the 2013 World Series of Poker for the final day of Event #42: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em!

2,100 players took to the felt on Sunday, and now just 11 remain with their eyes firmly on the gold bracelet and $345,037 first prize. Great Britain's Rory Mathews is in the best shape to mount a charge at the title after he bagged an impressive 898,000 in chips, but hot on his heels are Denis Gnidash (815,000), Norbert Szecsi (738,000) and Dana Buck (663,000).

Also in contention are experienced tournament pros Chris DeMaci (591,000) and short stack Daniel Neilson (243,000) as everyone will firstly be looking to surpass the guaranteed $19,939 min-cash before locking up at least $25,392 on the final table.
