It's dinner time here at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. So far on Day 7 of the Main Event we've lost nine players and had four different chip leaders. The man everyone will be chasing after dinner is Sylvain Loosli , whose 20.1 million chips leads the final 18 players.

The big story of the day so far is the collapse of Anton Morgenstern, who began Day 7 with a whopping 21.955 million but didn't even make the dinner break. After being crippled in two hands by Mark Newhouse early in the day, Morgenstern lost the rest of his stack when he ran ace-jack into the pocket aces of Fabian Ortiz. The German found no help on the board, and hisdismal day at the tables came to and end.

James Alexander had a disastrous Level 32. The amateur from Texas began the level with nearly 18 million but got involved in several altercations, most of which didn't end well for him. He managed to double up late in the level before busting on the last hand before the dinner break.

Also eliminated during the past level was Maxx Coleman, who was eliminated in 21st place when his queen-jack came up short against David Benefield's ace-three.

There's 12 minutes and 25 seconds remaining in Level 32, and that's where we'll return after the dinner break. We'll be back at 8 p.m. Las Vegas time to bring you the exciting conclusion to Day 7 of the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event!
