Dan Kelly Records Sixth Cash Of This Summer's World Series Of Poker

Poker Pro On Pace To Break Record Of 11


Poker pro Dan Kelly is on pace to break the record for most cashes in a single World Series of Poker. Through Wednesday, the Maryland native had six cashes during the first two weeks of the summer festival. There was still a ton of poker tournaments to be played.

Kelly was deep in event no. 21, a $3,000 buy-in shorthanded no-limit hold’em contest, on Wednesday going into Thursday. As of around midnight local time, Kelly was in the middle of the pack with 17 left. First place in the event was listed at $506,764.

The record for most cashes was set last year by Konstantin Puchkov. He recorded 11. If he keeps his current pace, Kelly could reach 18 cashes, which would obliterate the mark.

Excluding event no. 21, Kelly has cashed for about $412,000 thus far this WSOP.

Kelly won a bracelet in 2010. He is also one of the most successful online poker players in history, claiming more than $3 million in cyberspace.

Stay tuned to for more updates on the event and Kelly’s run.
