Update Day 6: WSOP 2010 Main Event Winners And Losers

Update Day 6: WSOP 2010 Main Event Winners And LosersOn Day 6 of the 2010 WSOP Main Event, 205 players returned to the Rio Casino to continue their quest for WSOP glory, but by the time the play had finished twelve hours later, just 78 hopefuls remained.
Amongst the 127 players to head to the rail on Day 6 of the competition was the two times Main Event champion Johnny Chan, who started the day with a 2.6 million stack and in the top ten chip count.
However, Chan lost 2.1 million of those chips when his pocket kings ran into pocket aces, and a little later on pushed his remaining 550k all-in pre-flop after being dealt pocket J’s, only to face an opponent’s pocket aces once more. With no miracle cards coming to his rescue, Johnny Chan exited the tournament in 156th place for a $57,102 pay-day.
Other notable players joining Chan on the sidelines on the gruelling day of action, included Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond, JP Kelly, Christian Harder, Robert Mizrachi, Jesper Hougaard and the last woman standing Breeze Zuckerman.
On the other side of the coin, a whole host of poker pros still remain in the competition and those currently going through to Day 7 in style include the chip leader Theo Jorgensen (9.3 million) and Michael Mizrachi (7.5 million). The 29-year-old Mizrachi started the day on 1.8 million chips and continued playing his excellent game, which has already earned him a WSOP bracelet at WSOP 2010 Event #1: The $50k Poker Player’s Championship.
Also sitting on big stacks are John Racener (7.2 million), William Thorson (6.525 million), and Alexander Kostritsyn (5.715 million).
Other big names still very much in contention, include Bryn Kenney (3.830 million), Eric Baldwin (2.135 million), Johnny Lodden (2.105 million), Tony Dunst (1.550 million), David Benyamine (1.540 million) and Hasan Habib (1.165 million).
At this stage, all 78 players left from the original starting field of 7,319 will be guaranteed a minimum of $94,942 for their deep run in the tournament. With the players now on a rest and the excitement continuing to mount, Day 7 will get underway at Friday 12pm, when the field of 205 will be further reduced to just 27 competitors, with the final table of 9 then being determined on the Saturday.
