Dwyte PilgrimThe final day of the first $1,500 main event on the 2010-11 World Series of Poker Circuit schedule will take place on Tuesday, August 31 and Card Player is on the scene to bring you all of the action. The live coverage from the final day of the tournament will feature live updates, chip counts, and photos.

Day 2 welcomed back 75 players on Monday and when the final bell tolled well after midnight the field was still short of the final table of nine players. Thirteen players will return for the final day, including a few big names that have found success in the past at WSOP Circuit events.

Dwyte Pilgrim, (pictured right) has won a WSOP Circuit main event, as well as multiple Circuit preliminaries. He won a $235 no-limit hold’em event at this Circuit stop and he could add to his earnings in Iowa tomorrow. Pilgrim enters the final table as the chip leader with 822,000. The other headliners on the final day include Bernard Lee (339,000) and Blair Hinkle (243,000).

It should also be noted that Douglas Carli cashed in a record 44th WSOP Circuit event when he survived past the money bubble today, making him the Phil Hellmuth of the WSOP Circuit tour. He eventually busted out in 15th place, taking home $5,429.
