The challenge is currently on hold because Chance exceeded his deposit limit at WSOP.com. Currently, the maximum transactions are as follows, all capped at $300,000 monthly:

Payment processor Maximum/Day
eCheck $30.000
Credit Cards $5.000
PayPal $30.000
Cash at Cage (Caesars Palace, Harrah's Las Vegas) $100.000

On October 3, 2020, the last hand was played when Kornuth went all-in with an AA29 in a board 584 and lost against the flopped straight by Galfond's K756. Apparently after this, Chance's account was busted out. Galfond won $103k from Kornuth in just 250 hands that day.

The situation remains until today, and Kornuth said that it will most likely be fixed next Friday.
