Written By: Samantha A. | July 19, 2016 | Posted In Poker News

Cliff Josephy is leading the way in the WSOP 2016 Main Event at the Day 6 Dinner with player Michael Ruane following close behind.

It has reached Day 6 Dinner break in the 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event and unlike last year’s event when Joe McKeehen jump out in front with a big lead.  At this point there has been no player that has been able to separate himself from the rest as the field continues to get closer to the final 27, which in turn will signal the end of the day at the Rio All Suite Casino and Hotel.

With a total of 39 players left the legend Cliff Josephy is the player that holds the lead with 19.01 million dollars.  Cliff is trailed close by a fellow American Michael Ruiane who is holding 18.735 million dollars, Mike Shin from Milwaukee in next in line with 18.185 million, next comes the start of the day leader Jerry Wong with 17.935 million and last Matthew Moss from Britain holding 16.575 million dollars.

Cliff was able to get the best of Dan Colman after check raising all in one board with a hand holding a Jack of Clubs, a 5 of spades, a 4 of spades, and a 10 of clubs after he lead the flop and while getting raised by the pre-flop aggressor Dan Colman.  Josephy was able to get a fold in order to surpass 11 million dollars a very short time after the bust of Dietrich Fast as his aces were cracked by Cliff’s kings.

Just before this exciting level ended, the formidable high stakes player Jason Les went bust, as he ran his jacks into Tom Marchese’s queens and then also the nine’s into James Obst’s Jacks.

Other players that seen the end of their play in what was a faced paced three level included Jan Suchanek who came in 49th, Chris Klodnicki who came in 45th, and Brian Yoon who came in 60th.
