The Brits have established themselves as by far the best railers of this year's WSOP. At Jake Cody's match in the $25,000 Heads-Up Championship, the atmosphere felt like a Manchester United vs. Chelsea Premier League match, and their presence was felt by everyone in The Rio. While this event pales in comparison to the Heads-Up, they are still here in force to support their mate and chip leader Matt Perrins. The rail includes the likes of Chris Moorman, Jake Cody, Sam Trickett, Toby Lewis and many more. Even last night when we were playing down to the final table, many of them stood around for hours watching Perrins play. No event is too small for them to be out in force, drinking beers, and cheering for their countrymen.

Thomas Fuller - 5th Place

Thomas Fuller moved all in from the cutoff for 88,000 and Matt Perrins made the call in the small blind.

Perrins drew one card to a {8-}{5-}{4-}{2-} and Fuller stood pat with {J-}{9-}{7-}{5-}{3-}. Perrins flipped the {J-}. There was some momentary confusion, but Fuller realized first that his hand was now no good and offered a handshake. The Brits began to cheer again. Four are left and Perrins has a big chip lead once more.

Matt Perrins raised to 16,000 and Chris Bjorin made the call. Both players drew one card and Perrins fired out 31,000 before Bjorin raised to 91,000. It didn't take long for Perrins to make the call, and Bjorin said, "eighty-six," showing {8-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-}. Perrins flashed {8-}{7-}{5-}{3-}{2-} and sent it into the muck.

One for Rightmire, One for Perrins, One for Bjorin

Homer • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 2,000 ante

Chris Bjorin raised to 20,000 and Robin Rightmire made the call. Bjorin stood pat and Rightmire drew one card.

Both players checked and Bjorin showed {10-}{7-}{6-}{3-}{2-}, but Rightmire's {9-}{6-}{4-}{3-}{2-} was good enought for the pot.

Thomas Fuller opened to 20,000 from the cutoff but had to fold when Matt Perrins moved all in.

Matt Perrins raised to 16,000 from the small blind and Chris Bjorin made the call, Perrins drawing two once more against Bjorin's one. Perrins check-called a 15,000 bet, but Bjorin showed {J-}{9-}{5-}{4-}{3-} for the pot.

Josh Brikis Eliminated in 6th Place ($14,296)

Josh Brikis - 6th Place

In early position Matt Perrins raised it to 16,000. Action folded around to Josh Brikis in the big blind, who re-raised to 48,000. Perrins looked back at his hand a few times and then went all in with a snap-call from Brikis.

Both players elected to draw one. Brikis showed a {7-}{4-}{3-}{2-} giving him a draw to the nuts, and Perrins showed a {7-}{6-}{5-}{3-} for a slightly worse draw. But, Brikis got unlucky and drew another {3-} to pair him while Perrins drew a {J-} to give him the pot and put him at about 500,000.

Brikis was bounced in sixth place.
