The fourth day of the World Series of Poker Main Event is over and the players are finally in the money. When day four started a total of 53 players needed to bust out in order to reach a min cash and the first guy in the money was Randy Ohel in 692nd place for $18.406.
Once the bubble had burst, things began moving relatively fast in terms of players dropping out of the tournament. Some of the more notable players who have busted out on day four includes Jens "Jeans" Kyllonen, Olivier Busquet, Tony Hachem, Phil Galfond, Jonathan Little, Phil Ivey and John Juanda.
A total of 291 players remains in the main event, which has its fifth day starting in just a few hours time, not leaving a lot of rest of the players. It will be both mentally and physically challenging to continue to play the a-game for these players and with very high blinds, every single mistake can cost your tournament life.
Going into day five, Matthew Haugen is the tournament chipleader with 2,808,000 in chips, with a gap of 500,000 chips down to his closest followers. Dan Smith, Brian Hastings, Jesper Hougaard, Scott Palmer, Kane Kalas, Fabian Deimann, Brian Townsend and Jeff Madsen are some of the more prominent players that are still in the tournament and have a shot at the $10 million first prize.
