WSOP Main Event: Day 6

July 16, 2013

The 6th day of the WSOP is over and 27 players are still in the running for the final table. Here are some of the day’s highlights. The chip leader is Anton Morgenstern. He got the chip lead at 6 p.m. He then pulled away from the rest of the pack, ending up with 21,955,000 chips. Yevgeniy Timoshenko had captured the chip lead earlier in the day but did not last long. Timoshenko is now in the 18th position.

When asked if he was going to be able to sleep tonight, Morgenstern replied, “Yeah, for sure.  Every night when I go to sleep, there are thoughts going through my head, like what it would be like to make the November Nine.  I have a couple of meditation tapes that help me with all those thoughts to try and relax and try and concentrate.  That way I can fall asleep.”

Carlos “The Matador” Mortense is still very conspicuous in the Main Event. He has had a steady rise during the day and is now in the 6th position. Steve Gee, the 9th finisher in 2012, is kicking hard this year. He is posting a two year run that might be one of the most impressive feats in the history of the WSOP. The dream is now over for 41 more players who started the day but won’t continue on. Jackie Glazier was the only remaining female player on Day 6. The 31-year-old Australian had survived through most of the day but busted out at 10 p.m. in 31st position.

All players who will proceed to Day 7 have a guarantee of more than $285,408 in prize money each. The average chip count is 7,058,000. Ten countries are still represented in the final event including Germany, France, Netherlands, Israel, United States, Holland, Italy, Czech Republic, Canada, and Brazil.

Day 7 is on Monday. The three tables of survivors will battle it out for one last table, known as the “November Nine.”
