It has been an exciting day here at the Rio on Day 4 of the World Series of Poker Main Event. Today the bubble burst and 693 people made the money. Last year’s November Niner Joseph Cheong knocked out the 694th player, Reza Kashani with quad queens.

There are still a handful of Team PokerStars Pros left in the field who have made the money. Sebastian Ruthenberg is at the top of the leader board when it comes to Team Pros. He sits with 1,124,000 chips. Vanessa Rousso is also at the top of the leader board with 854,000 chips. JP Kelly is in with around 400,000 in chips and Tony Hachem has around 300,000 in chips. Daniel Negreanu is down to 89,000 in chips going into the dinner break. You can read about a few of his hands on the PokerStars Blog here.

Unfortunately Dennis Phillips, was eliminated on the last hand before dinner break. He moved all in from the small blind with {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs} and the big blind called with {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}. The board ran out {3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{q-Spades}{7-Clubs} and Phillips was sent to the rail in 557th place.
