2016 WSOP Main Event: Day 4 Winners And Losers

Day 4 of the 2016 WSOP Main Event saw 800 players return to the Amazon Room at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino looking to make further strides towards realizing their WSOP dreams. By the end of more than 10 hours of action, however, the field had been reduced to just 251 hopefuls, all of whom are now guaranteed at least $36,708 for their hard fought efforts.
