2016 WSOP: Day 5 Narrows Main Event Field to 80

Action has come to a close on Day 5 of the 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event and just 80 players are still standing.

Several big names fell during day 5, including former Main Event champions Greg Raymer (122nd - $49,108) and Johnny Chan (180th, $42,285).

It was not a great day for female pros either as Gaelle Baumann was once again the last woman standing and eventually eliminated in 102nd place for $49,108. Melanie Weisner took home also $49,108 after losing her last chips with A-K.

While we will not see a woman make the November Nine final table this year, there are still many interesting names left in the field, like the 2014 Big One for One Drop winner Daniel "mrGR33N13" Colman (pictured). Colman will come back tomorrow with 6,345,000 in chips.

American pro Jerry Wong is the current chip leader with 11,555,000 in chips. Other notables still standing include Jared Bleznick (7,995,000), Tom Marchese (7,155,000), Paul Volpe (7,290,000), and James "Andy McLEOD" Obst (4,880,000).

The remaining 80 players have now guaranteed at least $80,721 for their deep runs in this year's Main Event.
