11:49 p.m. Play will begin on Day 6 in a few moments. The goal is to continue until 27 are reached but the way things have been going they may just continue to the final table. Whatever happens, we'll let you know about it! Here is the player count list after Day 5:

12:06 p.m. The order to shuffle up and deal has been given and action is now taking place at the Main Event. It will be interesting to watch what happens and to see the money go up. Anyone busting out at this point will receive at a minimum $247,399 for their efforts. Blinds are now at 15,000/30,000 with 5,000 antes at level 25.

12:32 p.m. Play has finally begun to tighten up at the tables. The past 6 pots at the ESPN featured table have been picked up unchallenged by the initial raiser. Erik Friberg exposed his cards unintentionally believing his opponent was all in. The hand was still live and Erik got a 10 min penalty for it. First bust of the day was James Routos who will leave in 45th position to receive $247,399.

What happened is that after a flop of Qc 10d 5c, James checked to Rhett Butler who raised to $120,000. James reraised to $300,000 and Rhett makes the call. Turn card is 8c. James checked to Rhett of which Rhett raised $420,000. James then goes all in and is called by Rhett. James showed Jh 9s for a straight, but Rhett turned over Ac 7c for the flush hand and sent James packing after the river card helped neither player.

1:40 p.m. The list of today's eliminations continues to grow as John Lee (44th), Paul Raeburn (43rd), Brian Hansen (42nd) and Mikael Thuritz (40th) are now gone. Each received $247,399 for their finishes. Jamie Gold continues his lead as chip leader with $9,400,000. Allen Cunningham currently has 1,700,000 in his stack, Eric Molina has 1,400,000, Humberto Brenes has 400,000 and WeiKai Chang took some bad hits to his chips and is now down to 320,000.

2:05 p.m. WeiKai Chang lasted as long as he could but went out in 40th taking home $247,399 for his hard work. He was followed by Marc Friedmann (39th) and Robert Betts (38th) who will also pocket a big $247,399 to buy plenty of beers with. When Jamie Gold busted Robert Betts, his stack jumped up to $13,500,000 in size. Closest player to him is William Thorsson who's stack also went up after eliminating Marc Friedman to 6,350,000. Play is now going to level 26 where blinds of $20,000/$40,000 with a $5,000 ante will be the standard of play.

3:26 p.m. Players are down to 31 at the tables. Kyle Bowker (37th), Humberto Brenes (36th) and Rob Berryman (33rd) from PokerStars.com were recently busted out of the tournament. Others sent to the rail are Ricki Nielsen (35th), Andrew Schreibman (34th) and Dan Schmiech (32nd). Dan was sent home in pain. He went all in with 10s 10d and was called by Fred Goldberg who held Kd Kh. The board showed 7d 5h 4d Ks 7s giving Goldberg the full house and the winning hand.

5:05 p.m. Blinds have been raised to 25,000/50,000 with 5000 ante for level 27 play. Eric Molina (31st), Cuong Do (30th), Mitch Schock (29th), Lowell Kim (28th) are the latest sent to the sidelines in the Main Event.
