Casino chips

Day 6 of the World Series of Poker was completed just a short while ago with two more bracelets awarded and two new events kicking into action. The biggest story is that Phil Hellmuth could not quite pull off his 14th WSOP bracelet after finishing as a runner up in Event 7.

All of the action in the five events that played out have been summarised below, so check out what occurred.

Event #6 – $1.5k NLHE Shootout Day 3 – Bolotin Grabs Maiden Bracelet

The first event to finish up on Day 6 of the 2014 World Series of Poker was that of the $1.5k NLHE Shootout. The twelve players that had done remarkably well to even get this far started the day knowing that one of them would finish it as a WSOP bracelet holder. PokerStars Team Pro Dimitar Danchev came ever so close to his first but had to settle for second place after Alex Bolotin proved to hot on the day.

Bolotin took home his first bracelet and a payout of $259,211 on a night we are sure he will remember forever.

How It Finished

1st) Alex Bolotin – $259,211

2nd) Dimitar Danchev – $160,410

3rd) Jon Lane – $100,239

10th) Colin York – $14,615

Event #7 – $1.5k 7-Card Razz Day 3 – Hellmuth Denied 14th Bracelet

He came, he saw and he fell at the last hurdle. Phil Hellmuth was on the verge of extending his bracelet count to 14 but could not find a way past Ted Forrest who went on to claim his 6th. Hellmuth was gracious in defeat and will be happy enough that he made his 101st cash and 50th final table in the event.

Forrest won $121,196 for his excellent efforts as well as that 6th illustrious WSOP gold bracelet.

How It Finished

1st) Ted Forrest – $121,196

10th) Brad Albrinck – $8,677

Event #8 – $1.5k Millionaire Maker Day 2 – Two Chip Leaders

The record breaking Millionaire Maker saw Day 2 completed as the final field of 1,466 was cut down in size to just 178 WSOP bracelet hopefuls. Rather amazingly it finished with two players with exactly the same chip counts. Both Yuliyan Kolev and Jonathan Dimmig finished with 632,000 whilst the rest of the field is not too far behind them.

The Current Standings

1st) Yuliyan Kolev – 632,000

2nd) Jonathan Dimmig – 632,000

3rd) Bart Lybaert – 615,000

4th) Andrew Oh – 593,000

5th) Ron Jenkins – 584,000

6th) Sean Prendiville – 520,000

7th) David Fong – 393,000

8th) James Mackey – 387,000

9th) Colby Burleson – 385,000

10th) Roland McGinnity – 378,000

Event #9 – $1k NLHE Day 1 – Geyer Early Leader

Of the two new events to kick off on Day 6, the first was the $1k No Limit Hold’em. It attracted 1940 players and saw them fight through a grueling ten levels before they were reduced down to just 161 remaining.

Leading that field is Adam Greyer after a storming day at the felt put his chip count up to 177,500. That is a little shy of 100k more than anyone else and he will take some stopping on Day 2 tomorrow.

The Current Standings

1st) Adam Geyer – 177,500

2nd) Ryan Jaconetti – 99,700

3rd) Chris Hunichen – 99,000

4th) Keven Stammen – 94,800

5th) Vinny Pahuja – 93,200

6th) John Lin – 93,000

7th) Hieu Tran – 84,100

8th) Mike Pickett – 83,400

9th) Alexandros Kolonias – 75,100

10th) Mark Radoja – 72,700

Event #10 – $10k Omaha Hi/Lo Championship Day 1 – Kelly Edging It

The other event that was a new starter on Day 6 of the WSOP was the $10k Omaha Hi/Lo. This one attracted plenty of big names among the 112 entries and many of them have done well enough to progress into Day 2.

Dan Kelly holds the chip lead at the moment with 146,700 but he is only 2k ahead of Jeff Williams in 2nd Place. Daniel Negreanu and Eli Elezra are also inside the top ten, so it seems this event is going to get very interesting.

The Current Standings

1st) Dan Kelly – 146,700

2nd) Jeff Williams – 144,700

3rd) Abdyl Konjuhi – 137,100

4th) Ismael Bojang – 135,100

5th) Eli Elezra – 123,100

6th) Marco Johnson – 113,000

7th) Richard Ashby – 112,000

8th) Melissa Burr – 110,700

9th) Daniel Negreanu – 99,100

10th) Larry Wright – 95,600
