2006 WSOP Event #39: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

WSOP, 2006-08-06, by Ozone

What started as a massive field of 8,773 has now boiled down to 135. With just a handful of notable names remaining, odds are the eventual winner will be a player who was unknown prior to the start of the tournament.

Among those notables left in the field include, (with chip positions and stacks):

1. Jamie Gold $3,700,000
6. Prahlad "Mahatma/Spirit Rock" Friedman $1,558,000
17. Eric "Rizen" Lynch $1,085,000
26. Annie Duke $919,000
70. Allen Cunningham $503,000

Yesterday notable names such as Daniel Negreanu, Ted Forrest, and Joe Hachem busted out of the event. Hachem, after having AA lose to JJ all-in preflop, was seen fighting back tears after his strong run at a repeat victory came up in 238th place.
