Event #68: WSOP Main Event Day 4: Updates

The 2015 WSOP Main Event is getting down to the nitty gritty. From a starting field of 6,420, just 237 players still have a shot at the WSOP title and poker immortality.

One of those players is Daniel Negreanu, who bagged up over 1.3 million chips at the end of Day 4, good enough for 32nd overall. Main Event success is the one thing that has eluded Negreanu during his storied career, with his best finish coming in 2001 when he finished 11th – the final nine that year included Phil Hellmuth, Carlos Mortensen, Mike Matusow, and Dewey Tomko.

Other big names still in contention include Brian Hastings, Toby Lewis, Matt Jarvis, Justin Bonomo, Matt Glantz, John Racener, Jake Cody, Vivek Rajkumar, Men Nguyen, and Dan O’Brien.

Starting Today:

The Main Event! Day 5.
