239 players have advanced to Day 5 of the 2013 World Series of Poker $10,000 Main Event, with a dozen Canadian players still in contention to become part of this year’s “November 9” and quite possibly the next No Limit Hold’em World Champion. 2 players from Quebec are currently leading our charge to the more than $8.3 million top prize; Yann “Yadio” Dion (6th), who has made at least 3 huge final tables in the last year. Dion won an FTOPS Main Event, and has finished at the final tabled the PCA Main Event and Sunday Million over the past 12 months for more than $800,000 combined, more than proving he can crush tough, big field tournament poker. He’s joined by Ami Alibay (10th) in the top ten chip counts to start Saturday’s play.

Both players are around the T2,000,000 at Level 21, with blinds at 8000/16,000 and a 2000 ante. Not far behind, British Columbia players Jason Mann sits at about 1,780,000 in the 16th spot and Yi Fang is in 38th with nearly 1.4 million in chips.

Marc McLaughlin – 1,223,000 (QC), Alexander Livingston – 1,190,000 (NS) and Umang Dattani – 1,187,000 (AB) are also sitting on above average stacks, while Dustin Septa – 620,000 (AB), Stephane Blouin – 544,000 (QC), Ivan Mamuzic – 311,000 (ON), Greg Mueller – 300,000 (BC), David Pecaski – 199,000 (BC) and Ontario’s Mike Dietrich with a count of 193,000 round out the list of remaining Canadians.
