WSOP Main Event: Day 4 Wrap-Up

27 PokerStars Players Fighting For Bracelet


Saturday was simultaneously a day of soul-crushing disappointment and great hope. 2005 WSOP Champion Joe Hachem was eliminated after having his aces cracked. Still, with 135 players remaining in the World Series of Poker, PokerStars players are running strong and make up 20% of the field. What's more, dozens of PokerStars players have finished in the money and are taking home hundred of thousands of dollars.

The big question remaining right now is how fast the field will thin from here. The WSOP tournament directors hadn't planned on players busting out so fast. In fact, there are fewer players remaining in the field now than were expected to remain at the end of play on Sunday. Still, with nearly 90 million chips in play, there's a good chance the bust-outs will slow down as deep-stack play takes over.

We'll be back at noon on Sunday to see how our remaining PokerStars players will fare in Day 5.
