Each big hand that played out under the hot TV lights was filled to the brim with the kind of tension only big-time high-stakes poker can provide.
The day began with players forced to make some lofty decisions - like the one between busting out to pick up one-bedroom condo money or pushing on to the kind of cash that can change your life forever.
By the end of the day the decisions weren't any easier as it was the three-bedroom house in the suburbs they could be trading in for an ongoing chance at $8.5 million.
The Prince of Poker, Jerry Yang's Big Slick was a better bet and held with an Ace spiking on the turn.
Daniel Alaei, winner of a bracelet in 2006 was also gunned down today. Alaei shoved with A♠ Q♦ but ran into Alex Kravchenko, who already has a 2007 WSOP Bracelet will come into Tuesday's action - set for noon - as the short stack.
EPT stud Philip Hilm has the chip lead with $23 million, but Toronto Poker pro Tuan Lam and UK pro Jon Kalmar are not far behind sitting on $20 million each.
South African Raymond Rahme made some great calls throughout the day to put himself in a position to win it with $16 million in chips and Lee Childs who quit his job with National Geographic to become a full time poker player is now thinking he made the right decision with $13 million heading into the final table.
Then things get interesting because Hevad "Rain" Khan is sitting on a little over $9 million and this guy is as ready for prime time as anyone. His overblown celebrations have provided entertainment for everyone in the Amazon Room over the past week and he shows no signs of wanting to reign in in for Tuesday's finale.
Finally, Jerry Yang has $8.5 million in chips and if the final hours of play on Day 6 were any indication, he is willing to gamble.
