As of Monday, Wisconsin poker pro Joe Kuether had six cashes at the 2015 World Series of Poker, putting him on pace to break the record of 11 for a single summer.

Kuether has cashed in the $1,500 limit hold’em event, the $1,500 “Millionaire Maker”, the $1,000 no-limit hold’em turbo, a $1,500 no-limit hold’em event, the $1,000 pot-limit Omaha and, most recently, the $3,000 pot-limit Omaha six-handed.

Altogether, he has cashed for more than $18,000.

Four players were trailing Kuether with five cashes each.

The record of 11 was set by Konstantin Puchkov in 2012.

Last year, Humberto Brenes had 10 cashes going into the main event, but failed to make the money in the $10,000 no-limit hold’em championship.

In 2013, Dan Kelly had six cashes on June 13, which put him on pace for the record. However, he slowed down and ended the 2013 WSOP with eight cashes.

The record will likely be in jeopardy every year, as the WSOP continues to grow by adding more events. This year, a record 68 bracelet events were on the schedule at the Rio Convention Center. There were 65 last year. A decade ago there were 45 bracelet events.
