Anton Morgenstern leads the final 27 poker players as the 2013 WSOP Main event enters its climax stage. The last female poker player in the form of Jackie Glazier also fell at 31st position to make it an all male competition. As Day 6 ended, Level 29 wounded up and the final 27 heaved a sigh of relief. The final day’s play will take place tomorrow after which the November Nine will be formed.

At the start of Day 6, Sami Rustom was in chip lead with 7 Million chips but he went down at the hands of Philip Long in 39th place. Other notable poker players who fell on Day 6 included Umang Dattani, Jack Amyx and Dan Owen.

Australian poker player Jackie Glazier was the last female to be eliminated from the 2013 WSOP Main Event as she lost to Sergio Castelluccio in 31st place. She got a payday of $229,281. But some of the big names still in the lurch for the coveted Main Event bracelet include 2001 champion Carlos Mortenson and 2012 Octo Niner Steve Gee. Others still in the foray include JC Tran, Rep Porter and Amir Lehavot. It waits to be seen whether Mortensen can have a repeat after a decade or the 2013 WSOP Main Event has a brand new November Nine.

Day 7 will start at the Rio All Suites Hotel and Casino tomorrow and the 27 players will return to action. Play will go on till the November Nine are finalised. Keep watching this space for the latest on which poker players make up the final nine players.
