Day 6 of the 2022 World Series of Poker Main Event has come to an end and Jeffrey Farnes leads 35 players into Wednesday’s Day 7. The 2022 Main Event drew 8,663 runners and generated a prize pool of $80,782,475, from which the winner will take home $10,000,000. Day 6 welcomed 123 players, and 35 will return on Wednesday at 2 p.m. local time to play down to a final table.

Farnes is trailed at the top of the chip counts by Brian Kim, who ran hot all day and came up just short of the chip lead in the last moments of the evening. Philippe Souki, Karim Rebei, and Espen Jorstad round out the top five chip counts.

Day 6 Chip Leader

Farnes is the chip leader thanks to a day full of heroics and big hands.

“I guess it’s every poker player’s dream. It’s surreal. I think I’ll pinch myself when this whole thing’s over,” Farnes said about being the Day 6 chip leader.

The highlight of Farnes day came in the late stages of the evening when he made his charge up the leaderboard, first with the elimination of 2021 Main Event seventh place finisher Alejandro Lococo. Lococo got it in with ace-queen, but Farnes called with pocket tens.

“I just kind of felt like it was time to get one of the toughest players in the field out, so I tried it,” Farnes said about his flip with Lococo.

“It was only, I think, 20 percent of my stack to do it so I went ahead and made the gamble. And it was right. So that was cool.”

A short time later, Farnes vaulted into the chip lead when he picked up quads to take a chunk of Tzur Levy’s chip stack and chip up to nearly 40 million.

“To get quad nines at the Main Event on Day 6. I don’t know if it gets any better than that.”

New Stars Emerge on Day 6

The most memorable hand of the day came when Haim Or Krief picked up pocket queens and cracked the aces of Gilbert Cruz in a three-way pot that also included Stanley Lee and his pocket jacks. The aces were in command, but runner-runner hearts brought a flush for Or Krief to send Cruz and Lee to the rail in early Day 6 action.

Among the others in the top ten is Matija Dobric, who made Day 7 last year and finished in 32nd place.

"There is no mindset, I just play hand by hand and whatever happens happens, that's poker like every other poker tournament,” Dobric said after bagging up his chips at the end of Day 6. “I mean, it's not like every other event but I play my best every hand and there is nothing special about it.

"Last year it was really hard. I couldn't sleep because I was full of adrenaline and when I woke up after four or five hours of sleep, I was trying to stay awake at the table. This year is different, I am calm, I can sleep, I can get good rest, everything goes smooth."

Dobric will return for Day 7 with more experience and the rare opportunity to get another shot at making the Main Event final table.

Among the other breakout stars on Day 6 was Rebei, who got involved in hands early and often throughout the tournament.

"I hope [my playing style] is disturbing for the other players," Rebei said, offering some insight into his playing style - a style that involves playing a lot of hands. "What a lot of players have forgotten, there are 52 cards in the deck. If we want to play short deck, we play for short deck. I play 52 cards."

Also returning is Brooklyn-native Efthymia Litsou, who has locked up her first career WSOP cash in this year’s Main Event.

"I'm feeling very good. My aim was to make it through Day 1 so Day 7 sounds great," Litsou said at the end of Day 6.

Litsou returns as the only woman remaining in this year’s Main Event after Shelby Wells bowed out just after the tournament reached its final 100 players.

"I wish there were more women playing the game, so maybe next year," Litsou said.

Her preparation plans for Day 7?

"Get some alcohol in me first, and then some good night's sleep."

Other runners that made it to Day 6 but couldn’t find their way to Day 7 include Dan Smith, Zilong Zhang, Day 2 chip leader Muhammad Abdel Rahim, Day 1A chip leader Cedrric Trevino and Day 5 chip leader James Hobbs.

Day Six Completed

[user38873] • Nível 31: Blinds 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

The final 35 players have completed the last hands of the night and bagged up their chips for the night. All chip counts and a recap of today's action are to follow.

Sweet End for Souki

[user38873] • Nível 31: Blinds 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

In the penultimate hand of the night, the action was picked up on the {10-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} turn on which Jonathan Rosa checked. Philippe Souki bet 1,250,000 on his second barrel and Rosa then check-raised to 3,100,000 for Souki to call.

Rosa led the {k-Spades} on the river for 3,900,000 and Souki only took a few seconds before tossing in a single chip for the call. After being reluctant to show his cards, Rosa pointed towards Souki to show the superior hand and then mucked when the Brit tabled the {2-Diamonds}{2-Spades} for a set of deuces.

Efthymia Litsou raised to 525,000 from the cutoff and Robert Welch called from the button before Brian Kim came along from the small blind. Litsou called and the flop was {j-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}

Litsou shoved 6,200,000 on the flop and Kim called quickly.

Efthymia Litsou: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}
Brian Kim: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}

The board ran out with {k-Clubs} and {8-Spades} to seal the deal on Litsou's big double with a set of jacks at the end of Day 6.

More for Eames; Madan Somewhat Struggling

[user38873] • Nível 31: Blinds 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

John Eames defended the big blind against a raise by Mayank Madan and check-called a bet on the {k-Spades}{10-Spades}{6-Spades} flop. They checked down the {10-Clubs} turn and {q-Clubs} river and Eames tabled the {a-Spades}{3-Spades} for the flopped nuts to win the pot.

Shortly thereafter, Eames raised out of the small blind for Aaron Duczak to call in the big blind. On a {9-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{3-Spades} flop, the bigger stack bet and Duczak got out of the way.

Levy Halts His Fall

• Nível 31: Blinds 125,000-250,000, 250,000 ante

It's been a difficult level for Tzur Levy, who had fallen to around 5,000,000 after being up to more than 20,000,000. But he just got some of those chips back after tangling with Espen Jorstad.

Levy raised to 500,000 from early position as action folded around to Jorstad in the big blind, who called.

The flop came {2-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{4-Clubs} and Levy continued for 400,000. Jorstad raised to 1,300,000 and Levy called to see the {k-Spades} on the turn.

Jorstad sat motionlessly, his arms resting on his lap, for a few moments before checking and Levy quickly checked behind. The river came the {j-Hearts} and Jorstad again checked. Levy also tapped the felt as Jorstad showed {9-}{8-}.

Levy, though, turned over {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} to take the pot.
