Welcome back to the final day of Event #25: $5,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold'em at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. Six players will take their seats at the Main Stage inside the Amazon Room with their sights set on a World Series of Poker gold bracelet.
Leading the charge is Eric Tsai who had an outstanding Day 3, accumulating a stack of 8,040,000 chips, good enough for over 100 big blinds when the action gets underway. Right behind him is Scott Ball with 7,820,000 and Jonathan Jaffe rounds out the top three with 6,170,000. Bin Weng (3,980,000), Galen Hall (2,245,000), and John Racener (1,945,000) complete the field, the latter two players being the only ones in the field to have won a WSOP bracelet in the past.

The action is slated to get underway at 4 p.m. local time with the PokerGO stream starting at 5 p.m. There will be just over 30 minutes remaining in level 26 with the blinds at 40,000/80,000 and a big blind ante of 80,000. The levels will continue to be 60 minutes in length with a 15-minute break after every two levels.
There are still a ton of chips in play with the blinds relatively small compared to the stack sizes. And with the quality of players at this final table, it could make for a great battle that lasts into the wee hours of the night. The final six players have already locked up $81,736 but will be focused on winning that first-place prize of $562,667.
