WSOP Day 6 roundup

The field continues to narrow at the World Series of Poker Main Event as only 64 players remain after a long, five-level day on Monday at the Rio.

After 13 hours of play, the Day 6 starting group of 185 players whittled away to the remaining 64 with only two more days before the final "November Nine" table is filled.

Former Main Event champions Joe Hachem and Peter Eastgate saw their repeat gold bracelet dreams vanish along with notable players such as Joe Serock, Thierry van den Berg, Blair Hinkle, Theo Tran, J.C. Tran, Kenny Tran and Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier.

Fan favorite Phil Ivey is still very much in the hunt for the Main Event crown, finishing the day in third place.

The chip leaders are as follows heading into Day 7 Tuesday with blinds at $25,000-$50,000 with $5,000 antes. The average stack size is currently 3,044,063.
