2015 WSOP Main Event: Belgian Pro Pierre Neuville Leads Final 69; Daniel Negreanu Still Alive
Daniel Negreanu, Pierre Neuville.
Posted on Monday, July 13, 2015 by "T".
The 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event's Day 5 kicked off at noon on Sunday in the Amazon Room. 237 players took seat but only 69 remained after five two-hour levels of play. This means that the remaining players have so far survived 50 hours of poker (25 levels).
Pierre Neuville, from Belgium, began Day 5 in 77th place but finished as the chip leader. Neuville hasn't cashed at the WSOP this year (until now), but he made the money not less than eight times last year. He also made it past the money bubble in the 2010 Main Event. We wish him the best of luck!
Unfortunately, the last former Main Event champion fell on Day 5. Jim Behctel, the 1993 winner, was eliminated in 121st place. He was joined on the rail by several WSOP bracelet winners, including Jake Cody (113th place), Farzad Bonyadi (114th place), Norbert Szecsi (115th place), Vitaly Lunkin (119th place), Jared Jaffee (137th place), Elio Fox (163rd), Antonio Esfandiari (168th), Men "the Master" Ngiuyen (211th place).
Brian Hastings, a two-time bracelet winner this summer, is still alive. The American high stakes poker pro is among the top 10 players heading to Day 6 and he's one of the favourites to win the 2015 WSOP "Player or the Year" honours. Other big names that will return today include Daniel Negreanu (3.6 million - 22nd place), Toby Lewis (2.6 million - 33rd place) and Justin Bonomo (1.2 million - 57th place).
Tomorrow you'll find a brief recap of Day 6 here on BankrollMob.

| I like Daniel Negreanu so I am pleased to see him doing so well.He will be hard to beat but the player I have been watching is Brian Hastings who is having an amazing WSOP 2015.|
Chip leader is a very experienced player so has an excellent chance of making the final table and I think getting to the final table can do wonders for sponsorship etc.

| I am very happy to see Daniel one of the best poker players in the world still there and hope that he will stay in for a long time and why not final table. We Canadian should be proud to see that beside Daniel there are 5 others one that still are in the last 69 to go. And very soon each of them could be out of it with at least 100K. |

| He was in 77th and climbed all the way to the top? He may be careful playing on any position or the fall may come soon. But if he knew how to get to first, he must know how to keep there. Also good to know Negreanu is still around, his opponents must feel oposite sensations when playing against him, wanting to beat him but knowing his skills.|

- My intention for day 6 of WSOP main event is to increase focus and intensity 10% and trust myself fully, ending the day with 16 million.
- 2,410,000 didn't drag a chip the first 90 minutes. Being patient and my situations will come. 58 players left.
- 3,590,000 again with 46 players left. Rebounded nicely and setting into a solid old school rhythm.
- Up to 6 million now thanks to the 58cc and a little old school magic trickery haha. 42 left.
- 36 players left off to dinner break with a healthy 6.5 million stack.
- Up to 8,335,000 with 31 players left. We are playing just one more level tonight. Feeling awake and strong.
Best of luck to you, Daniel!

| Play has ended for the day. 27 Players left in the tournament. Negreanu is ninth in chips, and his name is the only one on the list that says anything to me. All the others are unknown to me.|

| There was a portuguese poker player sit on the same table of Brian Hastings, and although the champion was short, the Portuguese was shorter, placing 65th among 69 players. But Guilherme Soares is already in the history of Portuguese Poker Players, being the best qualified portuguese ever in a main event. The last record was a 120th place. |

We had one guy in 2012 on the final table - he ended up in 6th place, this year's best hungarian went out in the 115th place.
