A $300 satellite winner will face Damian Salas for the title after another controversial day for the World Series of Poker.

Joseph Herbert

We are just two players away from having a World Champion after 38-year-old Joseph Herbert took down the US leg of the WSOP Main Event.
He defeated Roy Jenkins heads-up to win the $1,553,256 first prize and a chance to play for an extra $1 million. 
The $300 satellite winner dedicated his win to his mother, who passed away earlier this year.
It was a very controversial day for the World Series of Poker after Upeshka De Silva was disqualified for testing positive for COVID-19. Things got worse for the WSOP as it was then revealed that International leg winner Damian Salas is currently unable to enter the US. 
He has tested negative for COVID-19 but because he has been in Europe less than 15 days ago, he was barred entry to the US. As a result his $1 million heads-up match with Herbert is now due to take place on January 3. 
Meaning that the 2020 World Series of Poker Main Event champion will be decided in 2021.
