WSOP 2014 Main Event: Day 4 Winners And Losers

WSOP 2014 Main Event: Day 4 Winners And LosersDay 4 of the 2014 WSOP Main Event saw 746 players return to the Rio in Las Vegas, but by the day’s end just 291 survived. All competitors are now guaranteed a minimum payout of $33,734 from their initial $10k buy-in, but nonetheless the players will be more interested in the $10 million first place prize, in addition to all the glory associated with being crowned a WSOP ME champion.
Phil Ivey started Day 3 as the chip leader but after around 10 hours of action had slipped down to 72nd spot. Day 4 then saw the 10-times bracelet winner’s 2014 ME aspirations come to an end after getting his remaining 225k chip stack all-in on a 9-9-2-2 with A-K, only to be called by John Kabbaj with J-J. The 5 on the river subsequently sealed Ivey’s fate, and just like that Ivey was eliminated.
Ivey was joined on the rails by a number of other big name pros, including Oliver Busquets, Ben Yu, Vinny Pahuja, Daniel Alaei, Jonathan Little, Abe Mosseri, Faraz Jaka. Also bowing out on Day 4 was Phil Galfond, who the previous day had tweeted:
“Finished day 3 of the main with 92k. Not how I’d hoped my day would go, but I’m happy to still have a shot. Obviously I’ll just fold my way into the money tomorrow.”
The plan seemed to work and Galfond managed to walk away with a 527th place finish worth $22,678.
Day 4 ended with blinds at 5k/10k with a 1k ante, and those players finishing in the top three chip counts included Matthew Haugen on a 2.8m stack (photo), followed by Zach Jiganti (2.36m), and Griffin Benger (2.32m).
Amongst the notable pros still in with a shot at the ME title include Dan Smith (2.29m), Brian Hastings (2.08m), Leif Force (1.98m), Matt Waxman (1.45m), Isaac Baron (1.27m), Rep Porter (931k), Vladimir Shchemelev (782k), Brian Townsend (730k), Bryan Devonshire (667k), Vitaly Lunkin (656k), Maria Ho (544k), Jeff Madsen (419k), Roland Israelashvili (317k), and David Einhorn (284k).
Day 5 of WSOP Main Event resumes at 12pm Las Vegas time, when the 291 player field is expected to be reduced down to around 72 players. Don’t forget to check in tomorrow at to see who are the winners and losers on the day.
