Mark Newhouse eyes back-to-back November Nines.

Welcome back to the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event! What began with 6,683 players is now down to the final 79 players, and the man leading the pack is a familiar face in Mark Newhouse. One year ago, Newhouse made the November Nine with 7.3 million, and now, 70 players away from the final table, he actually has more chips now with 7.4 million. Newhouse is looking to become the first player to make the November Nine twice — and first player to make back-to-back final tables since Dan Harrington did it in 2003 and 2004 — and he's put himself in a good position to do it.

Newhouse has plenty of tough company toward the top of the counts. Players chasing him include Kyle Keranen (6.67 million), who finished as the Day 5 chip leader in the 2012 WSOP Main Event; online legend Scott Palmer (6.595 million); Brazilian Bruno Politano (5.475 million); accomplished high-stakes player "King" Dan Smith (5.36 million); Iaron Lightbourne (4.975 million), who eliminated Jerry Yang earlier this tournament; 2006 Main Event 11th-place finisher and bracelet winner Leif Force (4.745 million); and one of Britain's best in Craig McCorkell (4.355 million).

Several other notable players didn’t bag quite as much but are still in contention including Martin Jacobson (3.925 million), Bryan Devonshire (3.83 million), Andrey Zaichenko (3.565 million), Matt Waxman (3.125 million), Isaac Baron (3 million), and Brian Hastings (2.945 million). Maria Ho, meanwhile, outlasted every other woman who entered the tournament after Mikiyo Aoki fell in one of the last hands of Day 5. Impressively, Ho pulled off the same feat in 2007, when she cashed 38th for $237,865. Ho will begin Day 6 with a short stack of 435,000.

Cards will be back in the air at 12 p.m. local time, which is less than an hour from now. The PokerNews Live Reporting team will be on hand to deliver all of the action and the field looks to play down to the final 24 players. Be sure to stay tuned for all the action and eliminations from Day 6 of the 2014 WSOP Main Event from the Rio All-Suite Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada!

While you wait, check out this video where Ho talks with Remko Rinkema about attempting to better her 38th-place finish from 2007:
