      Day 4 with began with 852 players returning with their eyes on the money bubble, and now, less than half remain. There will be 378 players returning for Day 5 tomorrow with Manoj Viswanathan leading the way.

      He’ll unbag 2.115 million and will have Sam Barnhart (1,925,000) and Pius Heinz (1,887,000) nipping at his heels.
      Reza Kashani was the unfortunate player to be eliminated in 694th place and was the last to not be paid. Joseph Cheong knocked out Kashani on the fifth hand during hand-for-hand play. In total hand-for-hand play lasted 46 minutes. The bubble popped and a flurry of bustouts exploded all over the room. By the end of the day the field had moved up five levels on the pay scale.

      Kashani wasn’t the only one to hit the rail though, joining him were Phil Hellmuth, Jeffrey Lisandro, Humberto Brenes, Jeff Madsen, Berry Johnston, Andrew Chen, Steve O’Dwyer, Dennis Phillips, Shannon Shorr, Jake Cody, Robert Varkonyi, Sandra Naujoks, Joe Serock, Vanessa Rousso and Bryan Micon.
      Notables returning for tomorrow are Daniel Negreanu, Sam Barnhart, Bryan Devonshire, David Bach, Jean-Robert Bellande, Ben Lamb, Sebastian Ruthenberg, Joseph Cheong, Matt Stout, Phil Collins, Joe Tehan, Kevin Saul, Eli Elezra, Lars Bonding, Gary Gates, Tony Hachem, Jon Turner, David Diaz, Erick Lindgren, Allen Cunningham, Todd Brunson, Petter Jetten, Carter King, Sorel Mizzi and JP Kelly.

      When you have this many players playing an uncountable number of hands, strange things are sure to happen. Paul Baron, Nelson Dantas and WIlliam Douglas Smith had a hand worthy of any Hollywood movie. Dantas was dealt pocket aces, Baron had kings and Smith had two lovely red ladies. In the end Smith was eliminated, Dantas lost a good deal of chips and Baron chipped up significantly after spiking a king on the flop.
      Day 4 proved to be a moving day for a lot of players. The first three days are all about survival but players looking to make deep run look to chip up and punish others on the bubble. Joining the 1,000,000-chip club are Bryan Devonshire, Jean-Robert Bellande, Chris Kwon, Ben Lamb, Sebastian Ruthenberg, Per Linde, Matt Stout, Massimillano Martinez, Chris Bonita and Max Heinzelmann.

      The chip lead changed numerous times throughout the day between Bach, Heinz and Lamb with a few others thrown in there for brief periods. But the man who started the day ahead, Manoj Viswanathan, didn’t hang onto it for very long. By dinner break, he was already shockingly gone at the hands of David Barter who took a couple of big pots off Viswanathan throughout the day until Viswanathan ran his pocket queens into Barter’s aces to bust.
