Things are getting pretty intense now that we have hit Day 6 of the 2013 World Series of Poker $10,000 Main Event; the remaining 68 players are looking at an at least six-figure pay-day and realizing a dream is within sight. There is only 2 more days of play standing between them and the “November 9”, not to mention huge pay jumps with every table that breaks Sunday.

There are 5 Canadians hailing from 4 different provinces still remaining:

Quebec’s Marc E. McLaughlin is at the top of the pack, with the 2nd highest chip count of 6,695,000 to start Day 6. It looks like he has last years champ, Greg Merson on his rail as well, so that can’t hurt:

Right behind is British Columbia’s Jason Mann, who is clearly in the zone, ending his Day 5 with the following tweets;

Then we have Alexander Livingston of Halifax sitting in 19th, with T3,635,000 and continuing his slow but steady climb.

Yann Dion was one of our shorter stacks for most of the play through Day 5, before gaining some end of day momentum to finish off the night with 2,270,000 in 37th.

Last but not least is Alberta’s Umang “Ronnie” Dattani. One of the bigger stacks and in and out of the top ten through-out the last two days of play, Dattani took his first bigger downward swing late in Day 5 play, but only down to around the 2 million mark. Those on the scene report Ronnie be confident and focused and it’s only a matter of time before we see him climbing the leader board again today. He currently sits 41st with blinds and antes going to 25,000/50,000/5,000. Umang’s good friend Khoa Nguyen finished 11th in the Main Event in 2011, giving a little extra motivation for him and his crew to see him do at least a few spots better.

Finishing spots 72th through 64th will now pay $102,102, with 63rd to jumping to $123,597. From there, players will be seeing very significant leaps every time 9 players are eliminated, right up until the final two tables. We do expect however, in the minds of most of the top competitors remaining that it’s the $8.3 million for first or nothing. With everybody sitting on a bit deeper stacks, it would reasonable to expect it to get down to 27 or less contenders today.

We wish the best of luck to them all!

As for those players eliminated in the money on Day 5, here is a list of Canadian results by pay bracket:

100th to 162nd: $50,752

Ami Alibay (QC) – 125th

Yi Fang (BC) – 138th

225th to 163rd: $42,990

Dustin Septa (AB) – 194th

Ivan Mamuzic (ON) – 198th

David Pecaski (BC) – 208th

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.
