58 Players Remain at 2005 World Series of Poker.

Published on July 13th, 2005, 2:26 pm EST

We are now down to 58 players in this year's World Series of Poker main event. The field started with just about 6000 entrants and would-be millionaires, and has now boiled down to an interesting mix of amateurs and professionals.

The average chip stack is approximately 1 million chips. Tim Phan is current chip leader, having passed Greg Raymer as chip leader in Tuesday's action. Phil Ivey is in the top 5, and you would have to consider him the favorite at this point, due to his experience in World Series of Poker events.

Other interesting players to watch that are still in it:

Tiffany Williamson, the only female left. She qualified online and is close to the lead in chips

Greg Raymer, 2004 World Series of Poker champ. Below average stack but still enough to work with.

Dustin "Neverwin" Woolf, well-known Internet player with a large following, just about average stack. This is his third strong tournament at the World Series of Poker.

We'll be updating at the end of the action tonight, as the field of 58 will be whittled down to 27 players.
