2009 PCA: The day ahead

Welcome to day four of the 2009 PCA. So far, we've seen a lot of words written about a typically spectacular tournament on Paradise Island in the Bahamas as we've sliced a starting field of 1,347 into the 32 who remain today.

By way of introduction to the penultimate day's play, here's a pictorial guide to today's action, courtesy of Joe Giron, one of the PokerStars blog's excellent photographers.
