Hand #13: John Beauprez raised to 26,000 from the hijack. The button folded and Zohar Spivack cut out a three-bet to 59,000. Action came back to Beauprez who four-bet to 92,000. Spivack five-bet to around 239,000 which prompted an announcement of "all in" from Beauprez. Spivack called for his tournament life which was about 270,000 total.

Beauprez showed {J-Diamonds}{j-Clubs} which was ahead of Spivack's {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}. The board came down {J-Spades}{9-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{k-Hearts} and Beauprez's set of jacks was enough to send Spivack home in 7th place.

Spivack will collect $28,155 in tournament winnings. With his elimination, our official final table of six is officially set! Full chip counts will arrive momentarily.

Stammen Finds a Double

• Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Hand #5: John Beauprez raised to 27,000 and took down the blinds and antes.

Hand #6: Manig Loeser raised to 24,000 from under the gun and it folded around to Keven Stammen who three-bet all in for 135,000 from the big blind. Loeser called and the hands were rolled over:

Stammen: {7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}
Loeser: {A-Hearts}{J-Hearts}

The two were flipping for Stammen's tournament life heading to the flop. The dealer fanned {3-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and Stammen remained in the lead. The {5-Clubs} on the turn meant Loeser would have to pair up or hit a deuce for the wheel to eliminate Stammen. The river was the {Q-Clubs}, though, and Stammen was able to double to 290,000 in chips.

Can Joe Cada Win His Second Bracelet Today?

Welcome back to our coverage of the 2013 World Series of Poker! Excitement in the Amazon Room is growing as final preparations are being made for the final table of Event #4: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em (Six Handed). Yesterday's play saw 117 players return of the 1,069 total entrants. By the end of the day, the field was whittled down to the final seven with Mike Mustafa leading the pack.

While Mustafa is the biggest stack in the room, all eyes are on 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Joe Cada. Cada has sported one of the biggest stacks in the room for a majority of this event and will be sitting down in the ESPN Mothership in fifth chip position.

Keven Stammen has also managed to rise above the field and will be appearing at today's final table. Stammen is a WSOP bracelet holder who won his title back in 2009 during a $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em event.

The money bubble burst quickly yesterday as play began just nine eliminations away from the money. After the bubble hit, a breadth of notable players soon hit the rail. The likes of Russell Thomas, Steve Zolotow, Humberto Brenes, Todd Terry, Bryan Piccioli, Craig McCorkell, Jonathan Duhamel, Calvin Anderson, and Matt Salsberg all saw the rail before the final table was reached.
