The sixth day of play of the 2012 World Series of Poker Main Eventwrapped up early Monday morning, leaving 27 out of the 6,598 who entered to battle it out Monday for a spot at the nine-handed final table. More than $8.5 million will go to first.
Leading the way is Marc Ladouceur. He has nearly 16 million, while the chip average is 7.3 million. The Canadian finished in the top 100 last year in the Main Event.
Joining the chip leader with experience on poker’s biggest stage is Jamie Robbins, who finished 11th in 2009.
“I’m final table or bust,” Robbins told Card Player earlier on day 6. “I said that on the first day of play and I’m sticking to it. Anything short of that goal will be a major disappointment for me. The money is great, but I need to be in that final nine to consider this tournament a success.”
Also in contention are Greg Merson, who won a bracelet this summer, California poker pros Danny Wong and Roland Israelashvili, Steve Gee, who has a bracelet from 2010, former L.A. Poker Classic champion Andras Koroknai, and online pros Yuval Bronshtein and Paul Volpe.
