2009 World Series of Poker

For those of you wanting some big names at the 2009 World Series of Poker final table, don't despair.  There are still plenty among the 185 players left as Day 5 came to a record early close.

Here were some of the remaining notable players.

Tom Schneider

3,168,000

James Akenhead

2,900,000

Ludovic Lacay

1,685,000

Fabrice Soulier

1,450,000

Jordan Morgan

1,400,000

Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier

1,400,000

Phil Ivey was also starting to come back strong towards the end of the night after taking a hit earlier in the day.  He came into Day 5 among the top 15 chip leaders. 

The World Series of Poker offered this final update:

"The carnage came thick and fast today, as we hit our target in record time for the second day running. 407 runners became 185 in three short levels, as the Amazon went crazy in a bid to chip up or ship out before Day 6. Among those who couldn't stand the pace were David Levi, Sorel Mizzi, Thor Hansen, Kara Scott, Dan Harrington and Bobby Baldwin. Among those who remain in the running, though, are such luminaries as Phil Ivey, Ludovic Lacay, Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Tom Schneider, James Akenhead and Joe Hachem. Our overnight chip leader is one Mr. Warren Zackey -- his stack has swelled to 5 million in the three levels we managed to get through today. Plenty of folks are on his tail, though, so this is still very definitely anyone's game. Bring on the pain..."

Everybody who came into Day 5 were guaranteed to walk away with a minimum of $25,000. 

The 185 is what is left of 6494 who entered the 2009 World Series of Poker.
