Event #65: $10,000 Main Event - Day 6 Ends with 27 in the Field

When Day 5 ended there were 79 players ready for a break before coming back to Day 6. Of those 79 Maria Ho was the last woman in the field sitting on the shortest stack of chips — we admit to cheering for her to take down the Main Event. Ho finished in 77th place for $85,812. *Sniff* It took 11 hours of play on Day 6 to reduce the 79 player field to the final 27. If finishing with the biggest stack at the end of a day's play is any indicator, Martin Jacobson will make the final table since he is the chip leader with 22.335 and he also finished as the Day 1a chip leader.

Level 27 was good for Jacobson where he stacked chips by winning a big pot off Jason Johnson and his kings. Johnson had pocket sixes and flopped a set. Johnson continued adding chips to his stack when he pushed Vladimir Bozinovic off a big hand and chipped up to 9.7 million.

Luis Velador (16.6 million), Dan Sindelar (16.345 million), Andoni Larrabe (15.28 million), and William Pappaconstantinou (14.64 million) are at the top of the chip counts with Jacobson.

When the day started, Jason Leifer was first to go in 79th place after set-over-set took him out of contention. Then it wasn't long before the last woman in the field, Maria Ho, was eliminated when she sent the last of her short stack all in preflop with the {j-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} only to run into the {q-Spades}{q-Hearts} of Zachary Hirst. Ho was also the last woman in the field in the 2007 WSOP Main Event where she won $85,812 for her 77th-place finish.

Brian Hastings also fell on Day 6. His last 1.3 million went in preflop on the {a-Hearts}{j-Spades} only to run into the {k-Spades}{k-Clubs} of Andrey Zaichenko. Both players made a full house but Hastings had to settle for 64th place for $103,025.

Others that were deprived of the World Series of Poker Main Event Championship throughout the day were Kyle Bowker (71st - $103,025), Tony Ruberto (68th - $103,025), Vitaly Lunkin (57th - $124,447), Isaac Baron (52nd - $152,025), Ryan Fair (48th - $152,025), Matt Waxman (45th - $186,388), Adam Lamphere (41st - $186,388), Garrett Greer (32nd - $230,487), Chris Johnson (31st - $230,487), and Day 4 chip leader Matthew Haugen (28th - $230,487).

There are a number of experienced players still in the hunt for the November Nine including Brazilian Bruno Politano (11.625 million), “King” Dan Smith (10.335 million), WSOP bracelet winner Craig McCorkell (8.765 million), Russia’s Andrey Zaichenko (7.335 million), last year’s ninth-place finisher Mark Newhouse (6.82 million), poker pro Bryan Devonshire (5.765 million), 2006 WSOP Main Event 11th-place finisher Leif Force (4.035 million), and Indiana cash game player Chris Greaves (3.935 million).

Day 7 begins at 12:00 p.m. PDT on Monday where play will continue until the November Nine is set. Each of the 27 are looking for a spot at the final table which will guarantee them a minimum payday of $730,725 and a chance at the $10 million first-place prize.
