Update Day 4: WSOP 2010 Main Event Winners And Losers

Update Day 4: WSOP 2010 Main Event Winners And LosersDay 4 of the 2010 WSOP Main Event saw the remaining field of 1,203 players return to continue their epic WSOP journey in the Amazon Room at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino.
By the end of the day just 574 competitors had booked themselves a place through to Day 5, with all the remaining players at least guaranteeing themselves a money pay-out from their deep run in the tournament.
In fact, the money bubble had burst earlier on in the evening when Tim McDonald was knocked out of the event in 748th place, thus becoming the last man to walk away from the competition empty handed.
At that point, much to McDonald’s chagrin, a large cheer went up from the remaining players as anyone finishing between 747th and 676th was now guaranteed $19,263 apiece. There was some relief for his dubious honour of being the “bubble-boy,” however, as McDonald was awarded a free pass to the 2011 WSOP Main Event. 
Amongst the big name pros exiting the tournament without a money cash were Dan Harrington, Annie Duke, Barry Greenstein, Barry Shulman, Jonathan Aguiar, Erica Schoenberg, Robert Varkonyi, Matt Savage and Rolf Slotboom.
Frank Kassela, Gavin Smith, Mel Judah, Allen Cunningham and Erich Mizrachi were then eliminated in the frenzy which ensued soon after the bubble burst.
The 574 players remaining have now guaranteed themselves a minimum of $24,079, but with chip leader Tony Dunst (1.546 million)  feeling better than most of his chances of taking down a bigger prize.
More notable names making through to Day 5 in style include Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond (1.392 million), Theo Jorgensen (1.340 million), Johnny Chan (1.159 million), Johnny Lodden (620k), Hoyt Corkins (572k), and Vanessa Selbst (430k). Also the 1998 Main Event winner Scotty Nguyen enjoyed a golden run after starting the day with just 47,800 chips but finishing on a 630k stack by the end of play.
Other top pros very much in contention include Sammy Farha (377k), Jason Mercier (335k), David Benyamine (329k) and Cole South (164k).
As the players now catch some overnight rest, Day 5 action will get underway on Wednesday at 12 pm local.
