Jared Hamby Current Leader of WPT Mandalay Bay Poker Championship

On June 2, 2007, Jared "The WacoKidd" Hamby led the field of the WPT Mandalay Bay Poker Championship. After 5 hours of poker play that day, the field narrowed down from 10 remaining poker players to 6 final players that will make up the WPT Mandalay Poker Championship final table.

Bodog representative, Jared "The WacoKidd" Hamby, finished that day as the chip leader looking to add to his prestigious finishes at different WPT events this year with 3 preliminary events and 2 deep runs at the poker championship tournaments.

With a total of 1,764,000 in total chips, Jared "The WacoKidd" holds a huge advantage over the rest of the remaining poker players. The other participants that are joining him at the final table include David Haddad with 1,180,000 in total chips, Shawn Buchanan with 853,000 in total chips, David Levi with 343,000 in total chips, Thayer Rasmussen with 273,000 in total chips and Danny Wong with 185,000 in total chips.

The champion will take home a total of $768,775 in total prizes.

In other WPT related news, a proposal for a summary judgment by the 7 poker professionals who filed a lawsuit against the World Poker Tour Organization was rejected by a court in Las Vegas.

WSOP Main Event Champions Chris Ferguson, Greg Raymer and Joseph Hachem along with fellow poker pros Howard Lederer, Annie Duke, Andy Bloch and Phil Gordon filed an anti-trust case against the World Poker Tour over the release forms that the players must sign before participating in World Poker Tour events, saying that it forces the players to waive their rights to their own images to the organization.

The lack of agreement between the 2 sides caused the judge to say that the facts should be fully heard before rendering judgment on the case.
