On Day 6 of the 2019 WSOP Main Event Championship, they played down from 106 to 35 players. When play ended, Nicholas Marchington bagged up the lead with 39.8 million. Rounding out the top five are Tim Su, Milos Skrbic, Henry Lu, and Garry Gates. Among the notables who busted on Day 6 were Same Greenwood, Chris Hunichen, Lars Bonding, Alex Winter, Romain Lewis, Jake Schindler, Dan Hachem, Antonio Esfandiari, and Jeff Madsen.

And then there were 35. The 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event championship is on the cusp of the final table. They played down to the final 35 on Day 6 and 26 of those players will get picked off on Friday at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas, while the final nine will get a must-needed day off before the final table commences on Sunday with everyone fighting for $10,00,000.

The big money is at the top of the largest mountain in poker with $10 million to first, $6 million to second, and $4 million for third. Right now, anyone who busts will go home with at least a quarter of a million. Not too shabby for a week of work eh?

So, who will win the most prestigious 10K event in the world? Which country can claim the next biggest superstar in poker? Will it be a total noob? Or a long-time poker industry vet like Garry Gates?

This year's Main Event attracted the second largest crowd in history with 8,569 runners. They put together a prize pool worth $80,548,600 but it's the top prize of $10 million that is on the minds of the final 35 players.

Money makes people do crazy things. Heck, think of the silliest thing you did for cash? Sometimes the thought of that much money can make someone's mind buckle like a diver getting the bends. One false move deep underwater and you're a goner. Same goes for the WSOP Main Event. Once you get to under four tables, the entire atmosphere changes. Mistakes are magnified a thousand fold. The entire world is following and analyzing your every play. If they weren't feeling the pressure the last few days, they are feeling it now.

And of course whenever there's large sums of cash lying around, it's a given that the vultures will start circling and the shysters come out of the wood work and all those long-lost relatives and friends who you had not heard from in years all of a sudden show up on the rail with nefarious intention.

On Day 6 of the Main Event, 106 players took their seats and Tim Su held the big stack.

At the end of Day 6, Tim Su increased his stack from 19M to 34.5M. He bagged up third overall. Nicholas Marchington from the UK finished Day 6 with the chip lead and a mountain of a stack worth nearly 40M. He has over 133 big blinds.

Hossein Ensan from Germany has 34.5 million, which is a smidge more than Tim Su. Serbia's Milos Skrbic is fourth overall with 31.4M and American Henry Lu is fifth with 25.5M.

Garry Gates, who once did official WSOP updates for Poker News and ran their coverage team, is sixth overall with 25M.

The mid-range stacks (between 11.5M and 21.6M) include Duey Duong, Warwick Mirzikinian, Dario Sammartino, Kevin Maahs, Michael Niwinski, Zhen Cai, Luke Graham, Enrico Rudelitz, Preben Stokkan, Yuri Dzivielevski, Viktor Rau, and Nicholas Danias.

Players between 7.2M and 10.2M have like 25-35 big blinds remaining. That group includes Hiroki Nawa, Zackary Koerper, Daniel Charlton, Mihai Manole, Marcelo Cudos, Austin Lewis, Mario Navarro, Oliver Bithell, Robert Heidorn, Christopher Ahrens, Corey Burbick.

Steven Parrot is the shorty with barely 1.8M and 6 big blinds with blinds at 150K/300K when action resumes on Friday. Other shorties include Alex Livingston, Thomer Pidun, Chris Barton, Paul Dhaliwal, and Jon Dempsey.

Among the notables who bounced on Day 6 included... Ryan Yu (36th), Alex Foxen (40th), Sam Greenwood (45th), Chris Hunichen (54th), Lars Bonding (55th), Alex Winter (58th), Romain Lewis (60th), Jake Schindler (67th), Fan Fan (69th), Dan Hachem (79th), Antonio Esfandiari (82nd), Chad Power (89th), Alan Goehring (93rd), and Jeff Madsen (102th).

Dan Hachem missed out on becoming the first father-son duo win the Main Event. His father Joe Hachem won the 2005 WSOP Main Event and the last final table to be played at Binion's Horseshoe before the WSOP moved to the Rio full time.

Right now, 28th thru 35th place gets paid out $261K. The next pay jump is at the final three tables and 19th thru 27th earns $324,650.

The bigger slices of the cheesecake start getting cut up with 18 to go with 16th thru 18th winning $400K, 14th and 15th getting $500K, 12-13th winning $600K, while tenth place and 11th place will walk away with $800K.

Everyone at the final table will win at least a cool million.

Action resumes at NOON PT on Friday and the final 35 will play as long as it takes to get down to the final table. Who knows if it will go somewhat quick and then hit a massive lull once it gets to the final ten.
