WSOP 2013 Main Event: Day 4 Winners And LosersJuly 13, 2013 12:18 pm
On Day 4 of the 2013 WSOP Main Event, 666 players took their seats at the Rio in Las Vegas, but by the end of the day just 239 hopefuls survived. Everyone is now guaranteed at least a $37,019 payout but all the players will, instead, have their sights firmly set on reaching the final table where a huge first place prize of $8,359,531 awaits the eventual champion.
The first player to leave the Main Event without booking a cash was 3-times bracelet winner Faraz Bonyadi, who exited on the bubble in 667th place, but received a ticket for next year’s Main Event as a consolation prize.
A whole slew of notable names then exited the Main Event on Day 4, headed by 10 times WSOP winner Doyle Brunson, who was reduced to a short-stack before calling an all-in holding K-10 to Segei Stazhkov’s pocket tens. Brunson later tweeted:
“Busted..I’m from France. Can I have a photo? Not a good thing to say to a guy just knocked out of WSOP.”
Other notable names sent to the rail on Day 4 include Christian Harder in 608th ($19,106), Mike Watson in 589th ($19,106), Humberto Brenes in 584th ($19,106), Erik Seidel in 560th ($21,495), Steve Zolotow in 543rd ($21,495), Paul Wasicka in 493rd ($24,480), Rupert Elder in 478th ($24,480), Michael Mizrachi in 473rd ($24,480), Bryn Kenney in 463rd ($24,480) and Mark Kroon in 458th ($24,480).
