Time has flown by with WSOP Main Event and due to a busy schedule I haven't kept up with the Main Event as I have done in the past. I was hoping someone would have kept things moving along but to no avail.

27 remain and we are almost to the final table. Some big names still remain like Ivey, Shulman, and Esfandiari. This could be the year a pro takes it down. I have no rooting interest in any of these players. Today will be the final day of the Main Event until Novemeber. So we will know who made it later today. I would expect a lot of the smaller stacks to be eliminated fairly on due to blinds and chip counts and then the battle amongst big stacks will come to the forefront near the middle to end of the day.
