The first level of Day 4 started with a brisk pace with most players thinking about the money bubble looming today. There are 738 players remaining, all fighting for the 693 spots that pay. Daryl Jace still sits atop the counts with 1,537,000. Marc-Andre Ladouceur joined the million chip club in the last level with 1.225 million.
We've had several notables bust out including Humberto Brenes, Jeff Madsen, Jeffrey Lisandro, David Chiu and Nikolai Senninger.
A perfect made for TV hand occurred between Paul Baron, Nelson Dantas and William Douglas Smith all going all in preflop with big pairs - the three biggest pairs to be exact. Baron held pocket kings and made a set, Dantas had pocket aces and survived and Smith busted with pocket queens.
Daryl Jace continues to push the pace, chipping up to over 1.5 million, courtesy of a low flush.
Patrick Poirer started the day as number two in chips with over 1.1 million. He lost a big pot shortly before the break holding against where his opponent rivered a set of queens and knocked him down to about 870,000.
