WSOP Main Event Day 6 Recap

Share this
79 players returned for day 6 action knowing that they were only 70 players away from reaching poker immortality and a shot at over 9 million dollars. Playes such as Phil Hellmuth, Victor Ramdin, Thomas Keller, and Mike Matusow entered play as the names to watch, but by the end of the day it would be new names that would emerge as the potential new stars of poker.

The day did not start without controversy as the one round penalty that Phil Hellmuth was given the night before was overturned by Jeffrey Pollack and Jack Effel. Hellmuth would go on to run his stack up to nearly 1.7 million but then would lose numerous small pots and would end up eliminated in 45th place when he could not win a race.

Mike Matusow had an up and down day but it all came to an end when he flopped trip aces with A-Q but his opponent caught a full house on the turn with his A-9. Matusow would be eliminated in 30th place winning $193,000.
