2015 WSOP Main Event: Day 6 Winners And Losers

2015 WSOP Main Event: Day 6 Winners And LosersDay 6 of the 2015 WSOP Main Event saw 69 players return to the Rio in Las Vegas, but by the end of play just 27 hopefuls remained, all of whom have now locked up a guaranteed $262,574 payout for their hard fought efforts. With just Day 7 left to play, however, all the survivors will be intent on outlasting their fellow competitors and making the final table of nine where a first place prize of $7,680,021 awaits the ultimate champion.
Losers
A total of 42 players fell by the wayside on Day 6, of whom 25 hailed from the US. Amongst the big name pros seeing their Main Event dreams come to an end for another year was Justin Bonomo (64th), Toby Lewis (53rd), Matt Jarvis (51st), Steve Gross (47th), and last woman standing Kelly Minkin, who picked up $211,821 for her 29th place finish.
Also crashing out was 2015 WSOP 2-times bracelet winner Brian Hastings, who has also had to contend with the controversy of having been accused by pro David Baker of playing illegally on PokerStars under an anonymous name during the Spring Championship of Online Poker series. Following his exit, Hastings tweeted:
“Out of #WSOPMainEvent in 49th, CO raises 140k I make it 430k BB with KK, he makes it 1.08m I decide to jam 5.4m and lose to AA. Pleasure playing with many of you during the Main. Lot of great people in the poker world. Glad I’m not letting the negative ones trump that.”
Winners
Finishing Day 6 as chip leader is Thomas Kearney (photo) on a 14,400,000 stack, followed by Matt Guan, (14,230,000), and Erasmus Morfe (12,085,000). Its worth noting, however, that players at the final table are expected to have an average stack of 21 million chips, and so there is still a lot of play left before the November Nine is reached.
Without a doubt, the biggest name still left in contention also happens to be the biggest star in the game, namely Daniel Negreanu, who is currently sitting on a 8,495,000 stack. Other notable pros still vying to become one of this year’s November Niners include Anton Morgenstern (6,955,000), Pierre Neuville (6,000,000), Fedor Holz (4,645,000), and Max Steinberg (3,290,000), who later tweeted:
“Well, I made an awful squeeze to end the day but I’ve made the final 27 with 3.3. I’m grateful for my luck so far and happy with my play!”
