WSOP Main Event: Last Year's Finalist, Mark Newhouse Leads After Day 5

Posted at 20:00 2014-07-14 by PokerNetwork Staff

Day 5 was so far the longest day on the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event. 291 players started the play, and only 79 of them went on.

The man at the top of the chip counts is a person who will be familiar to anyone who tuned in to the 2013 WSOP coverage; Mark Newhouse entered the November Nine last year with a short stack of 7.3 million, good for eighth place. Evidence of how dominant his Day 5 was, he actually has more chips now than he took into last year’s final table, with 7.4 million.


Several other notable players still lurk with a bag of chips and a dream. That batch includes Martin Jacobson (3.925 million), Bryan Devonshire (3.83 million), Andrey Zaichenko (3.565 million), Matt Waxman (3.125 million), Isaac Baron (3 million), and Brian Hastings (2.945 million).

The last women standing was Maria Ho, who survived the day with just 435,000. The professional, who appeared on the show Amazing Race, pulled off the same feat in 2007, when she cashed 38th for $237,865.
