Posted at 18:00 2014-07-15 by PokerNetwork Staff
Day 6 of the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event is in the books, and we are happy to tell you, that there are some well-know pros among the last 27 players.
79 started the day, and last year's finalist, Mark Newhouse lead the way, who is still in the hunt to go back-to-back into the finals. An achievement done by Dan Harrington 2003 and 2004 in much smaller fields.
After 11 hours of play on Day 6 the field was reduced to the final 27. Leading the way with a stack of 22.335 million was Martin Jacobson, who started off his run by emerging as the Day 1A chip leader.
While dozens fell, there is still some experienced talent in contention for a coveted spot in the November Nine.
That includes 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), poker pro and 2012 12-th-place finisher Bryan Devonshire (5.765 million), bracelet winner and 2006 WSOP Main Event 11th-place finisher Leif Force (4.035 million), and Indiana cash-game player Chris Greaves (3.935 million).
