That's it for Level 29, and the entire day, as rapid eliminations all day long have caused a stoppage after just four levels. With 27 players remaining, Anton Morgenstern will lead the way heading into Day 7. He bagged up a whopping 21.955 million in chips after getting a nice boost to his stack in the final hand of the night.

Coming into the day, Sami Rustom had the chip lead with over 7 million in his stack. In the third level of the day, all of those chips were gone as Rustom finished in 39th place. He was eliminated at the hands of Philip Long, finishing with a payday $185,694.

The last level of the night saw Jack Amyx fall in 37th place. He was followed to the payout desk by Umang Dattani (36th place), Nicolas Le Floch (35th place), Byron Kaverman (34th place), Aleksejs Ponakovs (33rd place) and Dan Owen (32nd place).

Then in 31st place, the last woman standing hit the rail with the elimination of Jackie Glazier. With the blinds at 50,000/100,000/10,000, Sergio Castelluccio raised from middle position to 200,000, then Glazier reraised all in for 1.975 million from the big blind. Castelluccio quickly called with the {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and was up against Glazier's {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}. The board ran out {9-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{9-Spades}{5-Clubs}{K-Hearts}, and that was the end of the line for Glazier. She earned $229,281 for her finish.

After Glazier busted, Danard Petit went out in 30th, Philip Long was eliminated in 29th, then George Wong headed out the door in 28th.

Moving forward, there are plenty of big names still left in the field. First and foremost, you've got the 2001 Main Event champion Carlos Mortensen. Then, last year's ninth-place finisher Steve Gee is also still alive. Outside of those two, notable players Yevgeniy Timoshenko, David Benefield, JC Tran, Amir Lehavot and Rep Porter all still remain, making for plenty of firepower scattered around the final three tables.

Tomorrow, Day 7 will kick off at 12 p.m. Las Vegas time, and this will be the most important day of the summer for these 27 players that remain. You're either making the November Nine or you aren't, and Monday's play will determine all of that. However long it takes, play will last until the final nine have been reached. PokerNews will be live all day long with the coverage, so be sure to tune right back in tomorrow. We'll see you then.

George Wong Eliminated in 28th Place ($229,281)

George Wong - 28th Place
George Wong - 28th Place

The hand started with Anton Morgenstern opening to 200,000 from under the gun, and finding a call from Amir Lehavot on the button.

George Wong was sitting on the big blind, and raised it up to 575,000.

The rest of the field went off to break, as Morgenstern tanked over his decision for three minutes, before bumping it up to 1,000,000. Lehavot thought about his decision for several minutes, before finally opting to fold. With the decision back on Wong, he took almost two minutes to announce all in.

The bet totalled around 3,000,000, which was called.

Morgenstern: {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}
Wong: {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}

The board ran out {10-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{2-Clubs} to see Morgenstern improve to a full house, eliminating Wong in 28th place.

After the conclusion of the hand, the Tournament Director announced that the remaining 27 players would be bagging up for the night.

Philip Long Eliminated in 29th Place ($229,281)

Philip Long - 29th Place
Philip Long - 29th Place

Tournament Director Jack Effel just called Table 441 the "action table." Here's why: On the next hand after the incredible Petit-Loosli encounter, James Alexander raised to 255,000 from the hijack and Philip Long moved all in for 1,540,000 from the cutoff. Alexander called, and it was a race situation.

Long: {3-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Alexander: {J-Spades}{10-Spades}

The {10-Hearts}{A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds} flop spelled disaster for Long, and he failed to improve on the {9-Diamonds} turn and {8-Clubs} river. Long made his way to the payout desk, and the rest of the table exited the Amazon Room for their 20-minute break.

Danard Petit Eliminated in 30th Place ($229,281)

Danard Petit - 30th Place
Danard Petit - 30th Place

High tension just now on one of the outer tables as a huge hand with a dramatic conclusion played out involving Danard Petit and Sylvain Loosli.

The hand began with an early position open to 200,000 by Marc McLaughlin. It folded around to Petit in the who reraised to 425,000 from the small blind, then Loosli four-bet to 975,000 from the big blind. That forced a fold from McLaughlin, but Petit called.

The flop came {J-Clubs}{9-Spades}{2-Clubs}. Petit checked, Loosli bet 950,000, then Petit check-raised to 2 million. Loosli considered the bet for a while, then called.

The turn card was the {K-Clubs}, and Petit checked again. This time Loosli pushed all in, and Petit called with the 4.045 million he had left behind.

Petit turned over {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds} while Loosli had {Q-Spades}{J-Diamonds}. Petit had the lead, but Loosli could hit a second pair, trips, or fill an inside straight to catch up. The situation recalled for some the hand from the 2010 WSOP Main Event in which Jonathan Duhamel knocked out Matt Affleck in 15th place after the chips went in on the turn, then Duhamel rivered a straight to crack Affleck's aces.

The dealer burned a card then delivered the river… the {10-Clubs}! A straight for Loosli, and an uncanny echo of that Duhamel-Affleck hand from three years ago. Petit was obviously disappointed, but continued to smile as he departed to the cashier's desk with his 30th-place ticket. Meanwhile, Petit suddenly catapults up over 14 million chips.

Farber Takes 1 Million from Lindh with Set

• Level 29: 50,000-100,000, 10,000 ante

Jay Farber raised to 225,000 from early position, and Chris Lindh called from the button. Everyone else folded. The flop came {a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}, and both players checked. The turn was the {7-Diamonds}, and Farber led out for 330,000. Lindh called, and the river was hte {6-Hearts}. Farber led out again, this time for 525,000. Lindh thought for minute, then called. Farber turned over {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts} for a set of nines, and Lindh mucked.

Jackie Glazier - 31st Place

Sergio Castelluccio raised to 200,000 from middle position, and Jackie Glazier jammed her 1,975,000 stack from the big blind. Castelluccio called immediately.

Castelluccio: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Glazier: {a-Spades}{q-Spades}

We had a race on our hands, and the flop was {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}{9-Clubs}, adding an extra out to Glazier's hand since a nine would make her quads with top kicker. The turn was a {5-Clubs}, and Glazier needed improvement on the river. A {k-Hearts} fell though, and the last woman remaining in the Main Event has been sent to the rail.

Red Aces for Lehavot

Amir Lehavot raised to 200,000 from early position, Anton Morgenstern called on the button, and Rep Porter defended his big blind. The flop fell {10-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{4-Spades}, Porter checked, Lehavot continued for 250,000, and only Porter called.

The turn was the {10-Clubs}, both players checked, and the {9-Spades} completed the board. Porter check-called a bet of 400,000, then mucked when Lehavot showed {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}.
