Phil Collins was the chip leader at the 2011 World Series of Poker Sunday evening, but it’s not the Phil Collins you’re all thinking of.

The poker player from the US has 16 career cashes.

Ben Lamb, meanwhile, continued to hang around the top of the chip leader positions for several days now.  At press time he was the second biggest chip leader.

Claudia Crawford was looking to be the last lady standing, holding midway among the chip leaders with just 90 left in the field early Sunday evening. 

“If this was last year, Claudia Crawford would've had a six-figure sponsorship deal by now,” the foks from WickedChopsPoker.com quipped, alluding to the limited number of online poker rooms still catering to the US market. 

Amanda Musumeci was dangerously close to the bottom of the remaining players in terms of chip counts.

David Sands, the poker pro who scarily resembles Natalee Holloway murder suspect Joran van der Sloot, has a girlfriend among the remaining players, Erika Moutinho.  She was also towards the bottom of the chip leaders at 7 pm PST.

Some of the major notables still alive include JP Kelly (4.3M), David Bach (4.3M), Bryan Devonshire (4.2M), Sam Barnhart (3.5M), David Sands (2.9M), Erick Lindren (2.6M), “Sugary” Tony Hachem (2.1M), Jean-Robert Bellande (1.5M), and Allen Cunningham (800k).
