Are you a poker pro in the making?

Nine players beat out a field of more than 6,000 in this year's World Series of Poker, and the time has come to sit down at the table once more to determine who will walk away with the $8.4 million top prize. But don't feel too bad for the losers. The remaining eight will share in a $17.6 million pot. Before the action gets under way Monday (8 p.m. ET, ESPN) and the final two or three players battle it out Tuesday (9 p.m. ET, ESPN), we wanted to know what percentage of SportsNation can hold its own at the poker table.
