There are just 27 players remaining in the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event and Team Ivey Pro Dan Smith is among the chip leaders. Dan survived Day 6 of the Main Event with 10.33 million in chips and will return on Monday to punch his ticket to the November Nine.
Dan began Day 6 with a stack of 5.33 million, good for sixth. Early on, he built his stack up to six million but began a slide that cost him about half his stack. Sean Dempsey and Kyle Keranen forced Dan out of a pair of big pots at the river and he sank to 4.2 million. He would later dip to just 3 million after dropping a pair of hands to Andrey Zaichenko and Mark Newhouse.
After the dinner break, Dan started to see a lot of fluctuation in his stack. He took down a nearly 1.2 million chip pot against Iaron Lightbourne to move back to nearly 5 million. A little later, Aaron Kaiser doubled through Dan to drop him to 3.3 million.

Rather than just sitting on his stack to squeeze into the money for a min-cash, Ronnie tried to make a move with on the button. Cloutier again gave him action with pocket fives. The flop and turn both missed Ronnie, but he spiked an ace on the river to double to 81,500.
Ronnie was able to ride that stack through the bubble as three players were eliminated during the first round of hand-for-hand play. Ronnie was all smiles knowing that he had just set a record that he believes will never be broken.
Fortune continued to smile upon Ronnie as he was able to knock out his nemesis Cloutier shortly after the bubble. He then was able to survive for a couple of levels and moved up a few spots on the pay ladder.…
