Jerome Brion boasted the highest chip count at the end of Day 1C of the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event on Monday with 248,000 to his name. 

Tyson Mao is second with 242,800 and close behind him is Michael Pedley on 240,900, while Rudy Sawa, Carl Carodenuto and Jason Mann round out the top six. They will be back in action on Wednesday for Day 2C.

Here's a full breakdown of the day's chip counts and here's the upcoming schedule and the tournament structure, courtesy of WSOP's official website.

Brion's total fell somewhat short of the leaders of Day 1A and Day 1B. 

Morten Mortensen topped the former with 276,000 chips, while Richard Dubini topped the latter with 254,500. They will each take part in Day 2A and Day 2B on Tuesday.

Per WSOP's official Twitter feed, the final chip count changed dramatically late on as the top 10 looked quite different even after the final break of the night:

A disappointing end for Alan Snow saw him finish on 185,500 chips. One late hand saw him fold at the river having earlier called at 1,150 before betting 3,000 at the flop.

Day 1C was perhaps most notable for boasting the largest field in a single day's play at the WSOP Main Event.

Per Robert Kirschen for the event's official website, 4,262 players took part on Monday, eclipsing the record of 4,240 which was set last year.

It also took the total field to 7,221 including Day 1A and 1B, the largest it has been since 2010 and the third-highest overall behind that year's 7,319 and 2006's 8,773.

Eric Baldwin, who won a WSOP bracelet in 2009, said "It's such a great tournament, and I'm really happy to see the number so high. It's a great field, all the characters really show up for this one, and it's a fun atmosphere."

The final nine will be determined at the close of play on Monday, July 17, with a winner crowned on Saturday, July 22.
