2016 WSOP - Day 6 Report

The 6th day of the 2016 World Series of Poker
was certainly a busy one: two bracelets were awarded, both of them picked up by "name" competitors, namely Robert Mizrachi and Kyle Julius. In addition to that, event #2, the $565 Colossus II played down to its final table, as did event #5, the $1.5k Six-handed Dealers' Choice event, which saw only 9 players remain standing. Two events kicked off on Day 6: event #6, a $1.5k NL Holdem affair, and event #7, a $1.5k NL 2-7 Single draw tournament.
No fewer than 21,613 entries were registered by the Colossus II, by virtue of which it quite probably became the largest event of the Summer. At the end of Day 6 though, that field was down to the final 9 players, all of whom could be seated at the same table. Given that the winner will walk away with a $1 million prize, the stakes are indeed high in this one. The player who finished the day with the largest stack was Jiri Horak from the Czech Republic, who had some 25.4 million chips bagged.

The Mizrachis have a definite knack for doing well in the WSOP's Championship events and indeed, this year's $10k Seven-Card Stud Championship tournament was won by the oldest Mizachi, Robert, who picked up a $242.6k reward for his efforts. The last day of action saw just 6 players return to the tables, of whom Mizrachi held the largest stack. He bounced 4 players on his way to victory and his 4th WSOP bracelet. Matt Grapenthien ended up in second place, for a $149.9k prize. George Danzer finished 3rd.
PartyPoker is a superb destination for recreational players these days and indeed that holds doubly true for their WSOP qualifiers.
