Posted at 23:45 2008-10-16
Day 5 of the PokerNews Cup Championships started with 213 players hitting the short-handed tables at 12:30pm for the start of Event #6: $550 No Limit Holdem 6-Handed. The players were looking forward to the aggressive style of play that short-handed Holdem provides and it brought plenty of big name players to the Crown Poker Room. The field included the likes of Tony Hachem, Andrew Scott, David Steicke, Grant Levy, Gareth Edwards, Emad Tahtouh, Tony Dunst, Max Veenhuyzen, James Obst, Van Marcus, Jamie Pickering, Rayan Nathan, David Saab and APPT Tournament Director Danny McDonagh.
 
The final table results were as follows:
 
1st Martin Cardno - $25,347
2nd Farhad Kia - $17,573
3rd Kent Hunter - $12,141
4th Steve Goldwater - $8,520
5th Michael Palti - $6,071
6th Matt Hawker - $4,260
 
 
At 4pm the final eight players of Event #5: $550 Tony G Celebrity Shootout with Bounties returned to the felt to battle it out for the trophy and $26,583 first place prize. Sam Khouiss entered the day with the chip lead but in the end he was the final bounty that was claimed as he couldn’t get past young gun Kenneth Damm in a tight heads up battle.
