The $10,000 buy-in Stud Championship at the 2016 World Series of Poker is now down to final six players from the original 87 players that started the event.

Three-time bracelet winner Robert Mizrachi leads the Stud Championship final table with over 1,3 million in chips. In addition to Mizrachi, Matt Grapenthien is the only other player to start the final table today with over 1 million in chips. Grapenthien won this event in 2014 and will be looking to repeat his victory now two years later.

The final table features also players like Ted Forrest, George Danzer and David Benyamine, who all fell to the bottom of the counts by the end of the night.

All of the remaining players have guaranteed at least $39,611 for making it this far, while the eventual winner will take home $242,662 and a gold bracelet.
