WSOP 2011 Day 7: Main Event Winners And Losers

After 10 hours of play on Day 7 of the Main Event, the remaining field of 57 players was further reduced to just 22 hopefuls.
Those players whose deep run in the prestigious tournament came to an end today included Sweden’s Per Linde in 57th ($130,997), UK’s Sebastian Ruthenberg in 55th ($130,997), Andrew Brokos in 53rd ($160,036), Canada’s Stefan Huber in 51st ($160,036), and David Bach in 45th ($196,174).
Having nursed a short stack for a few days  Erick Lindgren eventually saw his tournament come to an end after busting in 43rd ($196,174) and later commented:
“This is the Main Event. You never give up,” before adding, “You don’t play for 43rd place. I don’t know if I’m even for the World Series.”
Following suit was Tony Hachem in 37th ($196,174), John Esposito in 32nd ($242,636) and UK hope JP Kelly going out in 26th place ($302,005)
Also falling near the end of Day 7 was the golden couple of the Main Event, with David Sands eliminated in 30th and last woman standing Erika Moutinho in 29th for a payout of $242,636 apiece.
Day 8 action will resume with the blinds at 80k/160k with 20k antes, and leading the overnight winners is Anton Makievskyi, helped along by a massive 20 million pot played against Chris Moore.
Makievskyi (K-J) raised in early position and got a call from Moore (A-J), with both players then hitting the K-J-J flop, and all the chips moving to the centre of the table. Consequently Makievskyi ended the day on a 21.045 stack, while Moore finished short-stacked on just 3.04m.
Other players continuing to shine at the 2011 Main Event include Eoghan O’Dea (19.05m), Canada’s Khoa Nguyen (16.435m), Ben Lamb (14.69m), Phil Collins (13.80m), Ryan Lenagham (10.415m), Germany’s Pius Heinz (7.51m),  and Bryan Devonshire (6.19m).
Shorter stacks include Sam Barnhart (4.935m), UK’s Samuel Holden (4.74m), Lars Bonding (4.14m), and Chris Moore (3.04m).
The players are currently on an overnight rest, with the remaining 22 contenders then returning to battle it out for a place at the final table. The action will get underway at 12pm Las Vegas at the end of which we will finally have our 2011 WSOP Main Event November Niners.
