Day 6 of the World Series of Poker main event ended with 57 players. The WSOP report 'Kings, Queens, and a Chip Castle ' has a complete list of players remaining by table/seat number and their chip stack in the section named 'MEET THE PLAYERS - ALL 57' and you'll find a great recap of the statistics of this event and others in the same report.
Ryan Lenaghan finished the day as the chip leader; beginning the day with 2.3 million, he moved up to 6 million after taking out Julian Stuer. But the pot that catapulted him into the lead was his against Bryan Follian's . When the dust settled he held 12.3 million in chips as Follian hit the rail. Lenaghan moved up to 13.3 million when he busted Amanda Musumeci (one of the three women that started Day 6) but gave back some chips before bagging up 12.8 million at day's end.
Three women started Day 6; only one remained to move into Day 7 - Erika Moutinho. Moutinho ended up at the featured table, with her boyfriend, David Sands, as an opponent - and finished the day with 2.07 million. Claudia Crawford started the day with 1.88 million and ran it up to 2.36 million but slipped throughout the day. When she was under 1 million, she went all-in against Guillaume Darcourt and obviously missed and finished in 85th place. Amanda Musumeci finished in 62nd place.
Erick Lindgren jump started the biggest comeback story of the day when he doubled up almost immediately against Minh Nguyen. Lindgren's day began with 385,000 chips and after managing to ride the rollercoaster, more than once, he bagged 2.19 million at day's end.
