Day 4 of the 2010 WSOP Main Event is now in the books. 574 of 7,319 players are still in the tournament and all of them are guaranteed to get a share from the enormous prize pool of nearly $69 million. Chip leader of the tournament is Tony Dunst from Las Vegas, Nevada who sits on a stack of 1,546,000 (average stack 381k).

There are several notables left in the field (Johnny Chan, Hasan Habib, Johnny Lodden, Scotty Nguyen etc -- all top 100), with 4 days to go before the tournament is down to the final table and goes on a break. In a couple of hours day 5 of the main event kicks off. It has been a very interesting tournament to follow so far and hopefully the rest of the tournament will be even better.

World Series of Poker info:

The first World Series of Poker was an invitational wherein Benny Binion invited 6 of the world's best poker players to the Horseshoe Casino in Las Vegas. The World Series was growing very slowly for many years after that. It took almost 20 years before the tournament started getting really popular and attracted thousands of poker players from all over the globe.

This year's Main Event is the second biggest tournament ever (only the 2006 Main Event had a bigger field of players) and the winner will get $8,944,138. All players on this year's final table are guaranteed at least $1 million each.

Yeah, The Rounders is a great movie. Most people heard of Chan then for the first time.
It is the cause of many a suicide due to the poor bankroll management of all those Matt Damon wannabes.
