Tuesday, 15 June 2010

After ten hours of 6-handed NL in Event #26, a $2,500 buy-in affair, the field of 1,245 has been reduced to just 156 players with a veritable host of big poker names making their presences felt on… well, the felt.

WSOPE bracelet-winner Erik Cajelais is second place in chips after bagging 163,000; shortly behind Will Haydor on 180,400. Andrew Robl (119,400), David Benefield (99,200), Sorel Mizzi (63,900) and Annette Obrestad (59,000) are all still alive among the 156 survivors.

With the first prize at over $600,000 they aren’t the only ones still hunting for a bracelet with Team PokerStars well-represented – Daniel Negreanu seeks his fourth bracelet while Dusty “leatherass” Schmidt boasts an average chip count going into Day 2.

The top five chip counts are as follows:
1.Will Haydor 180,300
2.Erik Cajelais 163,000
3.Richard Robinson 152,100
4.Al Barbieri 133,000
5.Farhad Madhani 125,800
