Card Player’s 2014 WSOP coverage is sponsored by CarbonPoker.

Don’t look now, but 2013 November Niner Mark Newhouse is in great position to make his second consecutive World Series of Poker main event final table. The Chapel Hill, North Carolina native, who finished in ninth place last year for $733,224, is the overnight chip leader after day 5 with just 79 players remaining. He has 7,400,000 going into day 6.

Newhouse is making yet another run in the world’s most prestigious poker tournament, but he has some company by the name of Maria Ho. Ho was the last woman standing in 2007 when she finished in 38th place for $237,865 and this year, she’s once again the last woman in the tournament. Unfortunately for Arcadia, California native, she’ll be the shortest stack in the room with 435,000 once play resumes on Sunday.

Maria HoOther notables still in contention include Kyle Bowker (920,000), David Tuthill (970,000), Vitaly Lunkin (1,080,000), Eddy Sabat (2,215,000), Mike Kamran (2,600,000), Brian Hastings (2,945,000), Isaac Baron (3,000,000), Matt Waxman (3,125,000), Ryan Fair (3,500,000), Andrey Zaichenko (3,565,000), Jose Luis Velador (3,780,000), Bryan Devonshire (3,830,000), Martin Jacobson (3,925,000), Leif Force (4,745,000) and Dan Smith (5,360,000).

One player who won’t be moving on to Sunday is David Einhorn, who busted in 173rd place for $44,728. The wealthy hedge fund manager who finished 18th in the 2006 main event and third in the inaugural Big One For One Drop, is donating all of his winnings to charity.

The action resumes Sunday at noon local time at the Rio. Take a look at the overnight chip counts below.
