Welcome back to PokerNews' coverage of Event #51: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Monster Stack.

After four days and 35 levels of play, the field of 7,862 players to down to just nine, each looking to make history by defeating the largest non-Main Event field in World Series of Poker history. Along with that comes a first-place prize of $1,327,083 and of course, a coveted WSOP gold bracelet.

On top of the chip counts at the start of the final table is Hugo Pingray with 22.7 million, roughly 57 big blinds. Pingray stayed under the radar for most of Day 4 before a later charge secured his spot atop the leaderboard. He is followed by Sean Drake with 20.975 million, who is looking for his second WSOP bracelet. Back in 2011, Drake took down the Casino Employees Event. They are followed by accomplished pros Thayer Rasmussen (15.475 million), Joseph McKeehen (12.925 million) and Zachary Gruneberg (11.85 million).

Here is how the entire final table stacks up:
