Update Day 5: WSOP 2010 Main Event Winners And Losers

Update Day 5: WSOP 2010 Main Event Winners And LosersAfter 12 hours of play on Day 5 of the 2010 WSOP Main Event, the 574 strong field of competitors returning for a shot at WSOP glory was reduced further to just 205 hopefuls.
Amongst the 369 players who saw there 2010 WSOP dreams come to an end were Jason Mercier, Vanessa Selbst, Sam Farha, Evelyn Ng, Alex Jacob, Vitaly Lunkin, Hoyt Corkins, Allie Prescott and Jason Somerville.
Also, Scotty Nguyen abruptly exited the competition near the end of the day, after getting his 310k stack in the centre of the table holding As-Js to his opponent Mads Wissing’s pocket K’s. With no help from the board, Nguyen crashed out in 209th place for a $48,847 pay-day.
On the other side of the coin, a relatively unknown player from Canadia by the name of Evan Lamprea finished the day on 3.56 million chips and the chip leader, with the German Michael Skender (3.5 million) close behind.
Out of the big name pros making it through to Day 6 of the competition in style, 10 times WSOP bracelet winner Johnny Chan (2.6 million) is by far the most visible. Johnny “The Orient Express” Chan has rarely been out of the top ten chip count over the past three days and fans are now wondering if the only remaining WSOP Main Event winner left in the tournament can now go on and secure himself a spot at yet another final table.
Other notable pros still left in the competition include Theo Jorgensen (3.1 million), Alexander Kostritsyn (2.6 million), Michael Mizrachi (1.793 million), Johnny Lodden (1.625 million), Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond (1.025 million), Eric Baldwin (292k), Hasan Habib (266k), and Robert Mizrachi(224K).
With the original starting field of the WSOP Main Event now reduced from 7,319 to only 205 players, only Breeze Zuckerman is all that’s left from the women’s contingent at this year’s event.
After some overnight rest, the players will return for Day 6 on Thursday at noon, where the field is expected to be reduced further to around 80 competitors, with the final table eventually being determined later on this week.
