We are down to only 33 players here in the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed and we still have quite a few notable names vying for the bracelet and $690,000 first prize.
If you know online tournament poker, then you know Chris "Moorman1" Moorman. According to PocketFives.com, he is the winningest online tournament poker player of all time with over $7,000,000 in earnings. Moorman is still looking to have his first big live score at the WSOP though as his best finish is a 15th place finish in last year's $10,000 Heads Up No-Limit Hold'em Championship for $38,424. He is our huge chip leader right now with 1,047,000, (more than 250,000 more than second). Moorman is known for his relentless aggression at the tables and with a big chip lead right now, he is undoubtedly the favorite to win the bracelet.
David "Bakes" Baker
Bakes has been a regular on the tournament circuit for quite a few years now and he really had a breakthrough year at the 2010 WSOP with a win in the $10,000 No Limit 2-7 Draw Lowball World Championship and a 6th place finish in the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship. He's been up and down all day, even at one point falling to around 10,000, but he's still in it now with 185,000 and is always a serious contender at any stage of a tournament.
O'Brien is another tournament circuit regular whose poker success began with a 349th place finish at the 2006 WSOP Main Event for $34,636. Since then, he's only had three WSOP cashes, one of which was a third place finish in a $2,000 No-Limit Hold'em for $198,132 at the 2008 WSOP. A win in this event would no doubt be the biggest score of his career. He's been very consistent all tournament and has 225,000 right now.
Will "The Thrill" Failla
Will "The Thrill" is a tournament circuit regular who made a big splash at the 2010 WSOP with seven cashes in No-Limit Hold'em events including a fourth place finish in the $3,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em. A win here would easily be his biggest score to date at the WSOP.
