WSOP 2011 - We're in the money in the Main Event
Saturday, 16 July 2011
Just 378 of the 6,865 starters are still in contention for the $8.7m first prize as Day 4 of the 2011 World Series Of Poker Main Event came to a close.
Manoj Viswanathan is our chip leader with a stack of 2,115,000 followed by Sam Barnhart 1,925,000, Pius Heinz 1,887,000, Stephane Albertini 1,867,000 and Daryl Jace 1,849,000. There are still plenty of big names still in the hunt for the biggest prize in poker including Daniel Negreanu, Jean-Robert Bellande, Ben Lamb, 2010 November Niner Joseph Cheong, Erick Lindgren and Allen Cunningham.
Sam Holden heads the UK challenge on 1,412,000 followed by JP Kelly 1,332,000, Niall Charlton 1,233,000 and Matthew Frankland 1,199,000. Laurance Houghton, Rupert Elder, Sunny Chattha, Adrian Passfield, Chris Brammer, Greg Moore and David Vamplew are also still in with a shot.
That can't be said for Phil Hellmuth whose quest for bracelet number 12 continues. Joining the Poker Brat on the rail yesterday were the likes of Jake Cody, Humberto Brenes, Robert Varkonyi, Vanessa Rousso and Reza Kashani who was briefly the most popular player in the room after busting the bubble.
All of the the Day 5 starters will be guaranteed a pay day of at least $30,974 but will be hoping for much, much more. Join us tomorrow to see who's still standing.
