Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Shorties Doubling Early

[user66118] • Level 19: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

We've heard the "All in and a call," shout a couple dozen times already this afternoon, and there are seats springing open. Still, not all the short stacks are succumbing quite so quickly.

Over on Table 312, a battle of the blinds saw Duane Alexander and John Moore getting it all in before the flop. Moore was the one at risk for 179,000, and he was in good shape with the {K-Diamonds} {K-Hearts} dominating Alexander's {J-Diamonds} {J-Hearts}. The board came {6-Spades} {5-Hearts} {Q-Clubs} {10-Spades} {4-Diamonds}, and Moore doubles up to about 380,000.

Just a moment later, one of our last remaining women put herself at risk. Mimi Luu shoved for 50,000 straight with {J-Clubs} {J-Spades}, and she was able to fade Robert Kolbe's {7-Spades} {8-Spades} to double. The board rolled out {3-Hearts} {A-Spades} {2-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} {10-Hearts}, and the lady is back over 100,000.

Four Levels


It has just been announced that there will in fact be four levels of play again today like the past two days.

Day 5 - Who Will Emerge?

Manoj Viswanathan leading with over two million.
Manoj Viswanathan leading with over two million.

Welcome back to Day 5 of the 2011 WSOP Main Event where 378 players from the 852 that started yesterday will return. This will mark the first day that all of the remaining players are in the money. At the top of the counts is the only player over the two million chip mark, Manoj Viswanathan (2,115,000)

Followed closely behind Viswanathan and rounding out the top 10 are Sam Barnhart, Pius Heiz, Stephane Albertini, Daryl Jace, Lars Bonding, Kyle Johnson, Matthew Kay, Mazin Khoury and Max Heinzelmann.

We expect an entertaining ESPN feature table with Daniel Negreanu and Jean-Robert Bellande among others. Chip leader Viswanathan will start at the secondary feature table.

With no player having separated themselves from the pack yet, will today be the day that someone emerges as a massive chip leader on their way to the November Nine? The likes of Bryon Devonshire, JP Kelly, Ben Lamb, Sebastian Ruthenberg, David Bach, Tony Hachem, Garry Gates and Eli Elezra are some of the players left that are hoping to accomplish that.

Unlike previous days where we have known exactly how many levels will be played, today will either be four or five two hour levels which will be determined by the WSOP staff depending on how the bustouts are coming along. In any case, stayed tuned with us here at PokerNews as we will have all of the action underway in around 20 minutes.
