$1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Six Handed

Pickering into the Lead

• Level 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Jamie Pickering has come from nowhere to claim a clear chip lead with 142,000 chips.

The man from the Gold Coast has amassed nearly $500,000 of tournament cashes so he will be a forced to be reckoned with from here on. He came very close to winning a WSOP bracelet in 2008 but was defeated heads-up by Vanessa Selbst in the $1,500 PLO event.
