78 Players Left in World Series of Poker Main Event After Day 6

Published on July 16th, 2010 4:28 am EST

Theo Jorgensen will begin Day 7 of the World Series of Poker main event as the tournament chip leader when action resumes on Friday afternoon.

Jorgensen managed to finish Day 6 with a monster stack of 9.3 million chips, which is nearly 2 million chips more than the next closest competitor, Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi.

Speaking of “The Grinder”, Mizrachi is continuing his unbelievable run at the 2010 World Series of Poker by going deep in yet another event. Mizrachi, who won his very first World Series of Poker bracelet earlier this summer in the $50k Poker Player’s Championship, has now put himself in an excellent position to make a run at the main event title.

Here are the top five chip stacks heading into Day 7 on Friday:

Theo Jorgensen - 9,300,000
Michael Mizrachi - 7,535,000
John Racener - 7,200,000
Jonathan Driscoll - 6,570,000
William Thorson - 6,525,000

Other notable names who are still alive after Day 6 include:

Alexander Kostritsyn - 5,715,000
Bryn Kenney - 3,830,000
Eric Baldwin - 2,135,000
Johnny Lodden - 2,105,000
Adam Levy - 1,685,000
Tony Dunst - 1,550,000
David Benyamine - 1,540,000
Hasan Habib - 1,165,000
Scott Clements - 1,085,000
Jean-Robert Bellande - 700k


Johnny Chan will not be winning his third main event title this year, as he ended up getting bounced from the main event earlier today.

Some of the other names who fell on Thursday included:

JP Kelly
Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond
Christian Harder


All of the 78 players who have managed to make it through to Day 7 will receive a minimum of $94,942 for making it this far.

Good luck to everybody that is still alive in the main event..
