Well that went faster than expected. And then there were 310. Day 3 ended with 1,182 players and the money bubble popped. Everyone who returned on Day 4 locked up a min-cash. The action always picks up as soon as the bubble bursts, but the bustouts started and didn't stop. By the end of the night, only 310 players were left standing. Sunday saw the liquidation of 75% of the field.
American pro Barry Hutter sits atop of the lead with 5.6M. Rounding out the Top 6 are Ale Haro, Brian Altman, Andres Jeckeln, Hari Bercovici, and Kelly Minkin. Hutter won a bracelet in 2015 and he was runner-up last week in Event #54 $3,000 NL. Hutter narrowly missed a bracelet last week and he's been cruising the last two days in the Main Event.
Joe Cada is the only former champ still left in the hunt. Cada won another bracelet earlier this summer, but he's looking to become the first multiple Main Event winner since Stu Ungar won his third title in 1997. Ungar had to fade a field of 312 total runners to win the 1997 WSOP Main Event. Right now, Cada finds himself among the final 310 in this year's Main Event.
Event #65 $10,000 Main Event Championship - Day 4 Results
Couple of former champs fell by the wayside during Day 4 including Tom McEvoy, Johnny Chan, and Jonathan Duhamel.
Only 2 stacks are in excess of 5M, including the chipleader Barry Hutter. Hutter bagged up a tick under 5.6M. Alexander Haro bagged up a tad more than 5M.
Ivey busted and the entire poker world is currently sitting Shiva.
Brian Altman got the rest of Ivey's stack. That's one of the reasons he ended the night third overall and a just shy of 5M.
