Nine hours and close to 900 eliminations later, six players are still alive and have a chance to take down the first World Series of Poker online bracelet event.
They'll have to wait until Saturday though, as the players will break for a day and return on July 4th to crown a champion.
In total, 905 players took their virtual seats, building up a nearly $860,000 prize pool that will see the eventual champion of Event #64 take home just over $197,000 and the first ever WSOP bracelet awarded through an online event.
There were plenty of big name players that took the felt, the only problem is, not all were known and even the remaining six players will remain anonymous for the next few hours, with their real names and chip counts being reported sometime over the next 24 hours.
We do know that Greg Merson, Natasha Barbour, Dutch Boyd all took a shot at the WSOP online glory, with the latter two making the money.
Those players all fell short of the final table, one that surely boasts it's own fair share of big name players, with those identities being revealed later on WSOP.com.
The handles and chip counts for the remaining six players are listed below, with a complete look at the remaining Event #64 payout structure listed under the 'Prize Pool' tab.
- 'imgrinding' - 2,572,767
- 'casedismised' - 2,290,637
- 'Stonerboner' - 1,832,138
- 'SLOPHOUSE' - 1,104,863
- 'GringoLoco72' - 1,059,089
- 'TuttyBear' - 467,813

David Tuthill is all-in and at risk holding and up against an opponent's .
The two are more or less flipping for each of their tournament lives, that is, until Tuthill flops a royal flush to lock up the pot and move near the 500,000 chip mark.
Tuthill, who was on the WSOP.com Twitch stream earlier today, has seemed to pick up some live updates run good and is now in a good position to make a deep run with just two tables remaining.

There are now 21 players remaining in Event #64 and as it stands, 'imgrinding' is absolutely crushing the rest of this field, as he seemingly can't be stopped.
He's currently the only player over the 2,000,000 chip mark and will look to continue to chip up and score knockouts to lock up a spot at this six handed final table.

'imgrinding' was the first player over the 1,000,000 chip mark and after taking a few hits, he's now the first player over the 1,500,000 chip mark after scoring the knockout of 'notontilt09'.
Friday, July 3, 2015 4:10 AM Local Time
'notontilt09' almost chipped up close to the 750,000 mark as he and 'stonerboner' got it all-in pre flop, only to see a set over set encounter straighten out to have the players chop it up, with neither being eliminated.
Friday, July 3, 2015 3:57 AM Local Time
There are just over 30 players currently remaining in Event #64 and 'imgrinding' is still the only player to even sniff the 1,000,000 chip mark.
'Loewa79' and 'Stonerboner' are new to the top of the leaderboard and each sit above the half million mark, while 'Exclusive1' and 'peggysuenuts' continue to hold their spots in the top five.
Play will resume after a short break, which could be the last as the pace of play and eliminations have not stopped since the money bubble burst.
