Day 6 of the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event began with 79 players, but after 11 hours of play only 27 remained. Swedish poker pro Martin Jacobson (perhaps best known for winning the 2014 EPT Vienna Main Event) will lead the remaining players into Day 7 with a stack of 22,335,000 - about 5.7 million more than Luis Velador (USA) in second place. According to WSOP's website, Jacobson got most of his chips in Level 27 when he won a big pot off Jason Johnson after he flopped a set with pocket 6's and got paid off by Johnson's pocket kings.
The remaining players are now guaranteed a minimum payday of $286,900 with the chance of going all the way to the top prize of $10,000,000! We will be back with another brief report tomorrow afternoon. Stay tuned!
