WSOP 2012 Day 4: Main Event Winners And Losers

WSOP 2012 Day 4: Main Event Winners And LosersDay 4 of the 2012 WSOP Main Event saw 720 hopefuls return to the Rio in Las Vegas, and by the end of the day just 282 players remained. As play commenced  everyone was hoping to at least make the 666 place money bubble worth $19,227, and in a sufficiently spooky Friday 13th turn of events, 4 players actually were eliminated in 666th spot and so split the payout equivalent to $4,806 each and will later play for the free pass to next year’s Main Event.
Amongst those notable names cashing but failing to advance through to Day 5 was Jason Mercier (659th), Marvin Rettenmaier (648th),  Liv Boeree (631st), JC Tran (561st), Christian Harder (505th), Antonio Esfandiari (501st), Dani Stern (492nd), Christina Lindley (360th), Chris Moorman (358th), Johnny Chan (353rd) and Shaun Deeb (319th).
On the other side of the coin, leading the players thriving on Day 4 was US online pro Paul Volpe (photo right) who closed the day with a huge 2.75m stack, followed by Sweden’s Erik Hellman (2.216m) and Dave Alessandro (2.093m).
Amongst the notables finishing the day with big stacks is PokerStars Team Pro Vanessa Selbst (1.678m), Canada’s Erik Cajelais (1.6m), Joseph Cheong (1.441m), David Baker (1.381m) and Andrew Lichtenberger (1.15m). Also making a deep run in the Main Event is UK’s JP Kelly, Scott Montgomery, Jason Sommerville, Holland’s Marcel Luske, Dan Shak, Sorel Mizzi and UK’s Sam Holden.
Meanwhile, players progressing with 25bb or less include Daniel Negreanu, John Juanda and Freddy Deeb.
The Ladies
Finally, of the six women still remaining in the competition, Norway’s Elisabeth Hille (2.014m) is out in front, followed by Vanessa Selbst (1.678m), France’s Gaelle Baumann (1.438m), Marcia Topp (662k), Susie Zhao (665k) and Australia’s Jackie Glazier (190k).
Day 5 of the Main Event continues today at noon Las Vegas time, and the minimum anyone can expect to receive now is a $38,453 payday. Here are the top 10 chip counts going into the day’s action:
1 Paul Volpe     2,750,000
2 Erik Hellman     2,216,000
