2013 WSOP Main Event- Will Marc E. McLaughlin, Jason Mann & Alexander Livingston Make November 9?


Jason-Mann-2013-WSOPAlexander-Livingston-2013-WSOPDay 7 of the 2013 World Series of Poker $10,000 Main Event will be the last played this summer, with only 3 tables consisting of 27 players still having a shot this year’s November Nine and it’s more than $8.3 million top prize.

Among those players are 3 Canadians who are now guaranteed at least $285,408 for advancing to Monday, though making it through today would mean at least $773,244.

The 3 Canadians hailing from 3 different provinces still remaining are as follows:

Jason Mann of British Columbia sits in the best shape, currently 10th with 7,500,000 chips going into Level 30, with blinds at 60,000/120,000 and a 15,000 ante.

Marc-E.-McLaughlin-2013-WSOPThis is Mann’s second deep run in the Main Event, having finished 249th in 2011 and his most recent poker accomplishment being having won the $5,000 High Roller at the 2012 West Coast Poker Championships. He’s adding double his prior career earnings of a bot better $120,000 already in this one, now time to run it up!

Alexander Livingston of Nova Scotia is in 14th with 5,800,000. With a little over $23,000 in prior combined live major tournament career cashes, this has to be a dream come true for this player. He’s been a silent force to be reckoned with so far, quietly chipping up at a steady pace and look for him to continue doing so.

Finally we have Quebec’s Marc E. McLaughlin with 5,415,000. Though the shortest stack of the 3, he’s arguably the most experienced with more than $600,000 in WSOP winnings on resume over 3 big finishes; he’s placed 3rd in $1,500 No Limit Hold’em as well as finished 30th and 86th in past Main Events. No matter what happens now, his performance this year puts him the top 100 players of the World Championship every other year for the past half decade…not an easy accomplishment. Marc is also very likely to cross the million dollar mark in live tournament cashes with this run and we are hoping for considerably more.

As for our Day 6 finishers, only two poker soldiers fell;

Calgary’s Umang Dattani came a respectable 36th for $229,281, while Yann Dion was sent to the rail in 66th for $102,102.

I love the game but am far to social to take it seriously and sometimes give up a little to much information at the table because I enjoy discussing the game, so decided it was safest for my bankroll to take up writing about the game. That way I still get to meet the cool people and opinions on the game, but with a little less risk.
