The $2,500 6-Max Limit Holdem tournament at the 2011 World Series of Poker is down to the final two tables and will likely play down to a champion on Monday. The 6-Max Limit Holdem event is definitely a specialists’ tournament, and it’s safe to assume that the remaining 12 players have a considerable amount of skill in the discipline.

There will be plenty of story-lines to follow on the Monday as Richard “nutsinho” Lyndaker looks for his first WSOP bracelet, Matt Matros looks to for his second Limit Holdem WSOP bracelet, and Stephanie Nguyen looks to win one for the ladies.

Lyndaker is an online legend, who has been making a name for himself in live tournaments over the past few years; including a 2nd place finish in the 2008 WSOP $5k NLHE tournament, as well as two previous cashes in the 2011 WSOP tournament series.

Nguyen is seeking the first WSOP bracelet in an open event for a woman since 2008, when Vanessa Selbst won the $1,500 PLO tournament. Despite numerous final tables over the past few years, the ladies haven’t been able to take down a WSOP tournament.

Matros is fast solidifying himself as one of the best Limit Holdem tournament players in the world after a bracelet win last year, but the poker pro will find himself on the short-stack when play resumes on Monday.

Here is a look at the chip counts for the remaining players:

1. Alexander Kuzmin – 412,500

2. Andrey Zaichenko – 315,500

3. Scott Stanko – 290,500

4. Richard Lyndaker – 248,000

5. Samuel Golbuff – 229,000

6. Stephanie Nguyen – 221,000

7. Gabriel Nassif – 217,500

8. Darren Woods – 178,500

9. Jay Pinkussohn – 172,000

10. Matt Schreiber – 159,000

11. Joe Gualtieri – 135,500

12. Matt Matros – 69,000
