Bardah Sets New Main Event Record, Then Busts Cloutier

With a cash in the 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event, Ronnie Bardah has set a new record. Previously, Bardah shared the record for most consecutive cashes of four with Robert Turner (1991-1994), Bo Sehlstedt (2004-2007), Theodore Park (2005-2008), Chris Overgard (2007-2010), Chris Bjorin (2008-2011), and Christian Harder (2010-2013).

Now, Bardah stands alone as he just earned his fifth Main Event cash in a row.

Bardah, winner of the 2012 $2,500 Six-Handed Limit Hold'em event, began his cash streak in 2010. That year, Bardah finished 24th out of 7,319 players for $317,161. In 2011, he placed 453rd for $27,103 from a field of 6,865. In 2012, Bardah finished in 540th place out of 6,598 for $21,707, and in 2013 he placed 124th out of 6,352 for $50,752. In the four prior years, Bardah has played in an average Main Event field size of 6,783.5 players with an average finish of 285.25. In total, his previous Main Event cashes have earned him $416,723, and he's guaranteed at least $18,406 this year.

Right after the field entered the money, Bardah moved all in from the small blind against Eric Cloutier's big blind. Cloutier tank-called with the {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds} and was ahead of Bardah's {2-Spades}{2-Clubs}. Cloutier was the player at risk.

The flop, turn, and river ran out {4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{A-Hearts}{A-Diamonds} to give Bardah the win and bust Cloutier from the tournament.

Yesterday, PokerNews' Remko Rinkema chatted with Bardah about the record he was chasing, and you can watch that interview in the video below.
