27 players are all that are left after 9 days and 6,710 eliminations, and they will now get a few hours of rest before it's time to return for the final day of play (Day 7) before the 9-handed final table (where $8,000,000 is put aside for the champion) is set and the tournament is paused until November, 2016.
Now, the remaining players will be led into Day 7 of the Main Event by Vojtech Ruzicka from Czech Republic with 26.4 million in chips.
