The 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event has played down from 6,352 starters to a final nine, and as has been done since 2008 the tournament has been paused for several months before it will be resumed. Two-time WSOP bracelet winner, WPT champion, and one-time PokerStars WCOOP Main Event winner J.C. Tran will begin the final table with the chip lead when play starts back on November 4th.

Here’s a look at who survived Day 7 earlier this week as well as their current stacks:

1. J.C. Tran (United States) — 38,000,000
2. Amir Lehavot (Israel) — 29,700,000
3. Marc McLaughlin (Canada) — 26,525,000
4. Jay Farber (United States) — 25,975,000
5. Ryan Riess (United States) — 25,875,000
6. Sylvain Loosli (France) — 19,600,000
7. Michiel Brummelhuis (Netherlands) — 11,275,000
8. Mark Newhouse (United States) — 7,350,000
9. David Benefield (United States) — 6,375,000

The final day of play in the $10,000 buy-in event saw Anton Morgenstern of Germany begin with a big chip lead among the last 27 players, yet fall in 20th place. Interestingly, only three of those who made the final nine were in the top nine out of the 27 who started Day 7 — Sylvain Loosli, J.C. Tran, and Jay Farber. In fact, two of those who made the November Nine began Day 7 at the bottom of the counts, with Michiel Brummelhuis 25th of 27 to start the day and David Benefield dead last in 27th.

Here’s a look at where each of the November Nine ended their days throughout the Main Event relative to the rest of the surviving field.

For more on the ups and downs of the November Niners, WSOP.com Managing Editor Jess Welman has looked at each player’s road to the final table in “Chip Chats: How the November Nine Stack Up.”

Meanwhile, looking back at the end-of-day chip counts throughout the 2013 Main Event further illustrates how leading a tournament early hardly ensures one will still be around at the end. For example, Mark Kroon ended both Day 1 and Day 2 this year as the overall chip leader, yet would be eliminated relatively early on Day 4 to finish 458th for a $24,480 cash.

Here’s a look at the top of the leaderboard at the conclusion of each of the first six days of the WSOP Main Event along with indications of how those players ultimately fared.
