Jacobson Crushes 2014 Main Event Day 6, Newhouse Hangs On

Swede Martin Jacobson has a decisive chip lead over the 27 remaining players in the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event.

Jacobson, who incredibly was chip leader on Day 1a, finished with 22.3 million on Day 6 and is within 18 players of making the November Nine.

Mark Newhouse, who finished ninth in last year’s contest, is still in the running to make back-to-back final tables. He finished with 6.8 million chips, which puts him in 11th.

The top 10 has an international flavour with eight different countries represented including the USA, Mexico, Brazil, Spain, England, Norway and Russia.

Ho Finishes 77th to End Last Woman Standing Run

Maria Ho

Maria Ho managed to win her second last woman standing title yesterday but finally ran out of gas in the early stages of Day 6 finishing 77th.

It was a tough loss for Ho and for women in general as it’s been awhile since the last woman standing bowed out that early.

The play down to the final table of nine should be an entertaining one with noted pros Dan Smith (10.3 million), Craig McCorkell (8.7 million), Bryan Devonshire (5.7 million), Eddy Sabat (4.6 million), Brian Roberts (1.3 million) and Scott Palmer (760,000).

Action resumes at 12 p.m. tomorrow and once again PokerListings will be on hand our on demand live coverage where you can pitch your own requests and questions.
