Day 6 of the main event is now over. Of 185 players who started this day, only 64 players made it through to day 7 after 10 hours of hand by hand poker. Unfortunately for Sweden is that their big hopes Christer Björin and Rifat Palevic both got knocked out in during 6. Other big names that got knocked out this day were Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Joe Hachem, JC Tran and David Benyamine.
The final table is getting closer and closer. Now there are only 64 players left that will play day 7 of the main event. Of these 64 players, we are very happy to announce that there are still some big names with the chance of making it to the final table. Most notable of these are, Phil Ivey (6,35 million), Dennis Phillips (made it to the main event final table last year - 2,3 million) and Antonio Esfendiari (5,6 million). Chip leader at the moment is Darvin Moon with 9,7 million chips.
Oh i am sad because of bertrand elky grospellier i really thought that he will last till the end. In the other hand, as i predicted phill ivey and esfandiari are in great position to be members of the final table!!

Posted by Davoodoo: Damn there are alot of very bad sites that "covers the main event" ... wtf! most of these sites havent reported anything new since day 2 . Is there any Finns left in the tournament ?
Check out the official WSOP website, its laggy sometimes, due to too many visits, but the standings are always up-to-date. I dont see any finns, but I might be wrong. Miika Puumalainen was the last finn who busted out, that I noticed, at 59th place.
54 Players remaining.
