WSOP 2011 Day 6: Main Event Winners And Losers

Day 6 of the 2011 WSOP Main Event saw the remaining 142 player field whittled down to just 57 contenders. All the players who succeeded making it through to Day 7 are now guaranteed at least $130,997 for their hard fought efforts.
Amongst the 85 players sent to the rail on Day 6 was 2010 WSOP finalist Joseph Cheong ($54,851), who called Phil Collins‘ all-in bet with Ad-Qd only to discover his opponent was holding pocket aces.
Other notable names eliminated on the day included Eli Elezra ($54,851), Finland’s Jens Kyllonen ($54,851), Sorel Mizzi ($64,531), Ray Henson ($64,531), Christian Harder ($64,531), Claudia Crawford ($76,146), Allen Cunningham ($108,412), Jean-Robert Bellande (108,412) and  Amanda Musumeci ($130,997).
With Day 7 blinds resuming at 25k/50k with a 5k ante, the overnight chip leader is Ryan Lenaghan on a 12.865m stack, helped along by a pot he won in excess of 10m. He was dealt J-J and six bet Follian (A-Q), with both players then all-in pre-flop.
“I definitely wasn’t trying to flip for that many chips. It was just a spot where I thought he could have a lot of hands and try to make a play on me because of our history, so I just went with it. It worked out well, and I just got a little lucky, I guess,” explained Lenaghan.
Other notable names joining him at the top of the chip counts include Ben Lamb (9.98m), Phil Collins (7.24m), and Bryan Devonshire (5.97m).
Middle stacks include Swedish pro Per Linde (3.75m), UK prodigy J.P. Kelly (3.7 million), Lars Bonding (3.3m), Sam Barnhart (3.1m), David Sands (2.7m), Australia’s Tony Hachem (2.25m), and Eric Lingdren (2.195m),
Even shorter stacks remaining include last woman standing Erika Moutinho (2.075m). David Bach (2.0m), Steve Brecher (1.8m), bracelet winner John Esposito (1.0 million) and German pro Sebastian Ruthenberg (890k) with $3,231,023 in live earnings and a WSOP bracelet to his name.
The remaining 57 players from the original starting field of 6,865 will now return to the action today at 12 pm Las Vegas time, when the field will be further reduced to just 27 players.
