Check Regal Poker for Latest Poker News, tips and more.
(pokernews.com) – It’s Day 6 of the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event, and there are just 69 players remaining from the starting field of 6,420.
In 2010, when Jonathan Duhamel so famously won the WSOP Main Event, Matt Jarvis was there at the final table. Jarvis’ run came to an end in eighth place for $1,045,743, but he’s still very much in the hunt to return to poker’s greatest stage five years later.
Not only is Jarvis still alive in the final 69, but he’s doing very well with the seventh-ranked stack of 5.25 million.

The name Bruce Peery may not ring a bell, but he has a very, very interesting story. As told in When We Held Kings by Eric Raskin on Grantland, Peery was the man who convinced Chris Moneymaker to win his seat to the 2003 WSOP Main Event instead of taking fourth place and the $8,000 cash prize. As the story goes, Moneymaker went on to win the event for $2.5 million, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Now, Peery has advanced to Day 6 with 2.4 million in chips.
Of the 69 remaining players, there are five Germans remaining. The German players remaining are Anton Morgenstern with 4.2 million (17th), Kilian Kramer with 2.335 million (36th), Hans Joaquim Hein with 2.025 million (41st), Fedor Holz with 1.945 million (44th), and Alexander Turyansky with 1.195 million (58th).Morgenstern and Holz are the two most notable from that group.
Every year, more and more women get involved in the poker action at the WSOP. This year felt no different, and there is still one of them remaining in the 2015 WSOP Main Event. That woman is Kelly Minkin.
The run by Minkin is the continuation of the great year she is having, already having earned $360,000 on the live felt. Her big score came in February when she took third in the World Poker Tour Lucky Hearts Poker Open Championship for $262,912.
