Pham is already guaranteed more than three times that amount, with every remaining player taking home at least $263,532 in prize money, although everyone will be eyeing up the $8.15m put aside for the victor.

The last 27 will reconvene at noon local time where they will be aiming to play down to the final table.

Cannuli is no stranger to success in World Series of Poker tournaments.

With just 27 players left in this year's WSOP Main Event from 7,221 starters there are still some familiar faces among those remaining, with the current chip leader on 31.44m chips, Christian Pham, looking for his second career WSOP bracelet.

This year, he won a seat into the Main Event via a $575 buy-in qualifier and nearly got eliminated on Day 5. Two years ago, he qualified for the Main Event's final table and placed sixth, winning almost $1.5 million. Several top players remain including Ben Lamb and Antoine Saout. Both players have third-place finishes in the world's most prestigious No-Limit Hold'em tournament. Saout reached the final table in 2009. Each of the nine finalists will be secured with a minimum payout of $1 million.

Pham will kick off Day 7 play as the chip leader and followed by France's Valentin Messina with 28,590,000, UK's Jack Sinclair with 27,535,000, Ben Lamb with 25,685,000, and Portugal's Pedro Oliveira with 22,540,000. First place stands to take home $8,150,000. All players that survived thus far into the tournament have locked a minimum payout of $263,532.
