With the elimination of Natalie Teh in 120th place ($57,000) Kelly Minkin is once again the last woman standing in the WSOP Main Event. Minkin has tried it before finishing in 29th place of the Main Event three years ago.
Day 5 began with WPT champion Ema Zajmovic and three-time bracelet winner Barbara Enright still in contention, but unfortunately none of them were able to advance to Day 6. Barbara Enright was sent to the rail in 292nd place ($37,705), and Zajmovic soon followed in 215th place ($49,335).
Now it was all up to Minkin, and she certainly stole the limelight early on. Going into the second break of the day Minkin was sitting with a stack of 5,700,000 and had gained the chip lead. Moved to the feature table she lost momentum and finished the day with 1,205,000. Due to a storm hitting Las Vegas and problems with the lighting Day 5 concluded one hour before scheduled.
With 20 big blinds to her name Minkin is one of the shorter stacks going into Day 6, but with the amount of heart and dedication Minkin has shown I will not be surprised to see her bag big at the end of Day 6.
