WSOP Day 4 Starts Now

July 15, 2011

The World Series of Poker Main Event has completed Day 3, and there are now less than 900 players remaining. Day Four, which picks back up tonight, will take players into the money when the 693rd place is guaranteed to receive at least $19,359. The game starts back up at noon Las Vegas time today.

Yesterday marked the first ever WSOP semi-live television coverage when ESPN aired Day 3 of the WSOP with a 30-minute delay. This semi-live coverage will continue through July 19th when the November Nine will be determined. In addition, every Tuesday night ESPN will air an additional 34 hours of semi-live coverage.

When play ended last night, Patrick Poirier from New York was chip leader with 1.3+ million in chips. In the past, Poirier has cased twice and earned about $6,700, so the pressure is on. Former WSOP champions Joe Cada, Huck Seed, and Tom McEvoy were eliminated, but some former champs still remain in the running including Carlos Mortensen, Robert Varkonyi, Berry Johnston, and Phil Hellmuth.

Other well-known players still in the tournament include Todd Brunson, Daniel Negeranu, Vanessa Rousso, Humberto Brenes, and many more.
The Main Event champion is set to win more than $8.7 million for winning the tournament.

On Day 1-A, former WSOP champs Jerry Yang, Greg Raymer, and two-time champ, Doyle Brunson were eliminated, as was 2006 WSOP Player of the Year, Tom Schneider. Day 1-B took down Michael Mizrachi. On Day 1-C, former WSOP champ Chris Moneymaker got knocked out of the tournament, as did Ray Romano, David Benyamine, Robert Mizrachi, and several hundred others.
