WSOP 2014 Main Event: Day 6 Winners And Losers

WSOP 2014 Main Event: Day 6 Winners And LosersDay 6 of the $10k Main Event began with 79 hopefuls, but after 11 hours of fierce action the field was reduced to the final 27 players, all of whom can now expect a minimum payout of $286,900 for their hard fought endeavors.
Losers
Amongst the notable names hitting the deck on Day 6 was Brian Hastings in 64th ($103,025), Vitaly Lunkin in 57th ($124,447), Isaac Baron in 52nd ($152,025), Matthew Waxman in 45th ($186,388), and Matthew Haugen in 28th ($230,487).
Also seeing her Main Event aspirations come to a end was last woman standing Maria Ho, who eventually bowed out in 77th place for $85,812, later tweeting:
“Twitter silence over. Was busy trying to win the @WSOP Main Event but was not meant to be. Eliminated in 77th out of 6,683 players.. Was unable to better my deepest main event run from 2007 when I finished 38th out of 6,358. Very proud of my 8 cashes this WSOP.”
Winners
From the 27 players remaining, 16 hail from the USA, with the other 11 coming from the UK (2), Holland (2), Sweden, Spain, Brazil, Norway, Russia, Austria, and France.
Finishing the day on the largest stack was Sweden’s Martin Jacobson (22.3m), followed by Jose-Luis Velador (16.6m), Dan Sindelar (16.34m), and Andoni Larrabe (15.28). William Pappaconstantinou (14.64m), a table top football enthusiast, also survived the day after which he commented:
“I’m going to try and stick with my same game plan. Hopefully no one picks up cards and I just keep on raising. In foosball you have to do 15 hour days standing on your feet, so literally this is like a breeze to me. I’m never tired and I’m sitting there enjoying myself. I don’t understand how people are exhausted.”
Notable pros still in with a shot at the $10 million top prize include Dan Smith (10.1m), Bryan Devonshire (5.7m), 2013 November Niner Mark Newhouse (7.01m), 2006 ME 11th place finisher Leif Force (4.03m), 2012 WSOP 3k NL shootout champ Craig McCorkell (8.5m), and 2014 WSOP $3k NL champ Sean Demsey (3.4m).
The remaining survivors will return to the Rio’s Penn & Teller Theater later on today when they will play down to this year’s November Nine, a feat which will earn each of the finalists a minimum payout of $730,725, in addition to a likely sponsorship deal and a great deal of publicity.
