Coming back from dinner, 44 players remained in the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event. Now, through two more levels of play in Level 28, just 37 remain.

The first post-dinner elimination came when Clayton Maguire got all in preflop holding the {k-Hearts}{7-Spades} only to run into the {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} of Craig McCorkell. The flop came seven high, but Maguire would fail to find anymore help and had to settle for 44th place and $186,388 in prize money. Likewise, David Tuthill, who was extremely short stacked at one point on Day 5, earned the same amount after falling in 43rd place when his {9-Spades}{8-Spades} couldn't overcome the {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} of Luis Velador.

One-time chip leader Michael Finstein followed them out the door in 42nd place, and he was soon joined on the rail by the likes of Adam Lamphere (41st - $186,388), Michael Kamran (40th - $186,388), Paul Senter (39th - $186,388), and Shahen Martirosian (38th - $186,388).

The plan for the night is to play down to at least the final 27 players, though tournament officials would like to get to the final 24 if possible within the next two levels. Cards will be in the air in 20 minute, so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out Remko Rinkema's interview with chip leader Martin Jacobson:
