PCA 2013: Day 4 kicking off with talented field

Maybe you haven't been paying attention so far. And if not, you can be forgiven. The long slog from nearly 1,000 players to a PCA champion can be exhausting. But, now, you must stay focused. The final 59 players of the 2013 main event make up one of the strongest Day 4 fields we have seen in a long time.

We have posted the full table draw below, and I dare you to find a an easy table. There simply isn't one. There is talent in this room and its pieces are all about the crash into each other.

This field is led by Patrick Kelly who brings 1.75 million (more than three times the average stack) to the start of play. He's joined by Team PokerStars Pros Eugene Katchalov and Jake Cody, as well as Team Online's Tatiana Barausova.
