WSOP 2011 Day 4: Main Event Winners And Losers

Day 4 of the 2011 Main Event saw 853 players returning to continue their quest for WSOP glory, at the end of which just 378 hopefuls remained.
Those players busting before the bubble included Sam Trickett, Phil Hellmuth, Humberto Brenes, Jeffrey Lisandro and Jeff Madsen.
Reza Kashani then had the dubious honour of being the “bubble-boy” after being eliminated in 694th place by 2010 WSOP Main Event finalist Joseph Cheong. Kashani did, however, receive a free entry into the 2012 Main Event, while all other players were now guaranteed at least $19,359.
Other players making it into the money but falling short of their WSOP aspirations included Adam Junglen ($19,359), Jake Cody ($19,359), Shannon Shorr ($19,359), Robert Varkonyi ($23,876), Vanessa Rousso ($23,876), Bryan Micon ($23,876), Blair Hinkle ($23,876), Ronnie Bardah ($27,103) and Todd Brunson ($30,974).
Progressing through to Day 5, where the blinds will start at 4k/8k with 1k antes, is the chip leader Manoj Viswanathan on a huge 2,115,000 stack. The amateur player had been playing a canny game throughout the day, and as he explains:
“I started at 414,000. I chipped up well with nothing major. Mostly because I didn’t want a coin flip for my whole stack. I got lucky, mostly just chipping up and trying to avoid confrontation.”
Close behind Viswanathan is Sam Barnhart (1.925m), Pius Heinz (1.887m), Stephane Albertini (1.867m) and Daryl Jace (1.849m).
Other notable names well placed going into Day 5 include Bryan Devonshire (1.365m), JP Kelly (1.332m), Ben Lamb (1.268m), Jean-Robert Bellande (1.134m) and top placed female player Amanda Musumeci with 1.064m in chips.
Players on medium stacks include Joseph Cheong (862k), Eli Elezra (779k), Sorel Mizzi (642k), Daniel Negreanu (619k), Tony Hachem (600k), Allen Cunningham (582k), Erick Lindgren (492k),  
Other famous names still in the hunt but needing to get off to good start when play resumes are Peter Jetten (360k), Freddy Deeb (258k), David Vamplew (213k), Christian Harder (175k), John Cernuto (161k) and Ted Forrest (75k).
All the remaining competitors are now catching up on some overnight rest and will be back in action at the Amazon Room once more at 12 pm Las Vegas time.
