And then there were nine! After seven days of action, the 2018 WSOP Main Event has reached the final table. Joe Cada is still alive. He won the Main Event back in 2009 and outlasted a final table that included Phil Ivey and Happy Shulman. Cada shipped his third bracelet earlier this summer. If he wins the Main Event, he'll win a fourth piece of bling and join a special club of two-time champions that included Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chan, Stu Ungar, and Johnny Moss. Wow, Cada has a shot at joining an elite club with some of the biggest legends of the game.

Mike Dyer was the big stack most of Day 7 until Nicolas Manion snagged the lead late on Wednesday evening after dragging a monsterpotten in one heck of a cooler. Manion's pocket Aces held up against two pairs of pocket Kings. One of them belonged to Rich Zhu and the other Antoine Labat. When the dust settled, Zhu busted in tenth place and bubbled the final table. While Manion seized the lead and Labat was barely alive.

At the final table, only two players passed the 100M-chip barrier. Manion leads with 112.7, while Dyer is not far behind with 109M.

Joe Cada is currently sixth overall with 23.6M. Cada came into Day 7 as one of the short stacks, yet somehow managed to stay alive and bag up chips once again. Chalk it up to experience. It's been nine years since his historic run, but at least Cada does not have to wait until November to play out this final table. Heck, there's not even a day off. The final table begins tomorrow!

Rounding out the final table... Tony Miles, John Cynn, Aram Zobin, Alex Lynskey, Artem Metalidi, and Antoine Labat. The French pro, Labat. is the shorty with 8M. Everyone at the final table locked up a min-cash worth $1 million.

First place pays out $8.8M plus 1,712.64 in POY points. If Cada wins the Main Event, he'll seize first place overall in WSOP POY and jump ahead of Johnny World.

The final table begins at 5:30pm local time and will be broadcast on ESPN2.

Say hello to the final nine. Nicolas Manion, Joe Cada, Mike Dyer, Tony Miles, Johny Cynn, Alex Lynskey, Aram Zobian, Artem Metalidi, and Antoine Labat. Joe Cada is the first former champ to advance to the final table since Dan Harrington did it back during the start of the glorious poker boom.

Only 26 players began Day 7. The final three tables slugged it out until they got down to one. Aram Zobian came into Day 7 with the lead and 41.5M. 2009 Champ Joe Cada was trying to pull off a rare feat with another final table appearance.

26 to 18

Antoine Labat took out the first player of the day with Carte Roi de carreauCarte Valet de carreau against Jeff Trudeau's pocket eights. abat flopped a Royal Flush draw. He didn't fill in the flush but dragged the pot when backdoored a pair of Kings on the river. Short-stacked Barry Hutter hit the road in 25th place when his pocket tens lost a race against Ming Xi's Big Slick. Belgian pro Bart Lybaert's run came to an end when his pocket fives lost to John Cynn's pocket sevens. Lybaert was knocked out in 24th place.

E-Fro busted in 23rd place on a cooler when his pocket Queens ran into Alex Lynskey's pocket cowboys. The two-time bracelet winner banked $282K for his deep run in the Main Event.

Nirath Rean's remarkable run fizzled out in 22nd place. Artem Metalidi's Ace-ten held up against Rean's Carte Roi de carreauCarte Dame de carreau. Rean flopped a straight draw, but never got there. Paulo Goncalves tried to double through the big stack... and failed. Ace-Jack was no good against Dyer's Carte 9 de piqueCarte 8 de pique. Syer rivered a flush to win the pot. The last Brazilian standing busted in 21st place. Ivan Luca rumbled with Ace-ten against Mike Dyer's pocket fives. Dyer flopped a straight flush draw. He didn't get there, but still won the pot when Luca did not improve. The pro from Argentina lost the race and took home $282K for 20th place. Dyer claimed yet another victim. Alexander Haro busted when his "Tourist" was not match against Antoine Labat's Big Slick. Ace-seven was no good for Haro, who hit the bricks in 19th place. The final two tables were set and Dyer led with 51M. Joe Cada was at the back of the pack with 10M.

18 to 10

French pro Sylvain Loosli's epic run came to a halt when he was picked off in 18th place. Loosli made a final stand with pocket sixes against Mike Dyer's Carte As de trèfleCarte 5 de trèfle. Dyer rivered an Ace and Loosli hit the rail. Loosli took home $375K. Not too shabby, eh?

China's Ming Xi made the final two tables, but that's as far as he'd get. Short-stacked Xi was dunzo in 17th place after losing a multi-way pot against Yueqi 'Rich' Zhu and Freddy Brink (Brink won the pot with pocket nines). Kao Saechao busted in 16th place when his Carte Roi de trèfleCarte Dame de carreau lost to Mike Dyer's Carte As de cœurCarte Dame de cœur. That hand pushed Dyer to almost over 90M.

At the dinner break, only 15 players remained. Dyer led with 82.2M. Cada was tenth overall with 15.2M. Only six more bustouts until the final table.

The last Dutchie standing made an exit in 15th place. Martijn Gerrits busted in a cooler. His Queens were ambushed by Alex Lynskey's pocket Aces. Ouch. Lynskey rocketed into second overall in chips. Short-stacked Konstantin Beylin was the next to bust when John Cynn took him out. The American from St. Louis busted in 14th place. Israel's Hari Bercovic lost a race with pocket fours against Dyer's Big Slick. Dyer flopped an Ace and busted another player. Bercovic hit the rail in unlucky 13th place.

Scandi down. Frederik Brink from Denmark made a final stand with Carte Roi de trèfleCarte Dame de trèfle versus Rich Zhu's Ace-ten. Brink did not improve and he was dunzo in 12th place. Ryan Phan's pocket fives were no match against Artem Metalidi's Jacks. Phan was knocked out in 11th place, which paid out $725K.

10 to 9

The unofficial final table was set. Joe Cada chipped up to 25M and was 6th overall. Mike Dyer led with 94.1M. John Cynn was second with 60.8M, with Anotine Labat in third with 48M. Alex Lynskey was fourth with 47M and Nicky Manion was right behin with 45M. Zhu was neck and neck with Cada with 24.8M. Artem Metalidi was still alive with 21.4M. The two shorties were Aram Zobian (15.7M) and Tony Miles (10.7M). The final ten were going to play until one more bustout.

Yueqi "Rich" Zhu shipped his first bracelet earlier this summer. He was looking for #2 and a final table berth as well. Unfortunately, he'd fall short of both quests. Zhu busted in tenth place and bubbled the final table.

Cooler time. Zhu woke up with Kings. But so did Antoine Labat. However, Nicolas Manion found Carte As de piqueCarte As de cœur. Three-way pot with Aces versus Kings versus Kings. Labat's stack incurred a massive hit. Labat was still alive... barely. He'd limp into the final table as the short stack, but at least the Frechman was still alive. Nicolas Manion's Aces held up and he rocketed into the chip lead with over 112M. Meanwhile, Rich Zhu hit the rail in tenth place. Ouch. Zhu banked $850,025.

The final table was set. And Joe Cada has a seat reserved for him. Nicolas Manion heads into the finale with the lead. Also locking up seats... Mike Dyer, Tony Miles, Johny Cynn, Alex Lynskey, Aram Zobian, Artem Metalidi, and Antoine Labat.

The final table begins at 5:30pm PT (a.k.a. Vegas Time). They will play down from nine to six on Thursday. On Friday, they will play from six to three. And on Saturday, the final three will play down to a champion.
