2014 WSOP Event #65 $10,000 Main Event Championship Day 5

by Joseph Smith Sr.

Mark NewhouseDay 5 of the World Series of Poker Main Event in now inscribed on the stone tablets of The Big Poker History Book.  A few millennium from now historians will dwell on the facts of what's taking place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.  They will know that 86 poker players remained from the field of 6,683 starters.

Additional Day 5 points of interest show the field of 79 is without any big name poker superstars.  They have all been eliminated by this group of not so well known, but great poker players, including at least nine that will join the stars.

Ironically, perhaps the best known player remaining in the hunt,  Mark Newhouse, is also the Day 5 chip leader with 7,400,000 chips.  For those of us with a short memory we only need to recall the 2013 November Nine players.  Mark Newhouse was included in that elite group and collected $733,224 for his 9th place finish.  He came to the 2013 final table 8th on the chip leader board with 7,350,000 in play money.  He currently has almost a million more chips than the next player, Kyle Keranen holding 6,670,000 or Scott Palmer in 3rd place with 6,595,000.

Sunday's Day 6 starting short stack belongs to Maria Ho.  She's also the only woman remaining in the field and has only 435,000 chips separating her from the rail.  Ho will need to put some winning hands together quickly in order stay and play with the boys.  Don't be surprised if she does exactly that.

Day 6 promises to be another great day for the fan club lining the rails.  Although many of the players are complete unknowns this will certainly change as play progresses through the day's scheduled five  levels.
