From penthouse to outhouse, Theo Jorgensen started the day with the chip lead and ended on the rail.

Day 7 of the WSOP Main Event is now a distant memory and only 27 players have their dreams of fame and fortune still intact.

Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi is still alive with 5.5 million and battling for a bracelet and potential Player of the Year title. The new chip leader is Joseph Cheong, who has 24.3 million.

Also still in the mix are Pascal LeFrancois, Scott Clements and Hasan Habib.

Some of the players who saw their title hopes fade on day 7 include John Robert Bellande, Theo Jorgensen, David Benyamine, Bryn Kenney, Alexander Kostritsyn and Tony Dunst.

All of the remaining players are guaranteed at least $317k in their quest for the top prize of $8.9 million.

Tomorrow will mark the 8th and final day of play for all but nine of the players. This is the third year the WSOP has utilized the "November Nine" format where the final table returns to play in November.

Upon reaching the final table tomorrow the final nine players will receive 10th place money and then will have to wait to see how the rest shakes out this fall.

Play will resume at noon tomorrow for the final day on the WSOP calendar this summer. As always, PokerListings will keep you abreast with all of the latest news and live updates.
