The Main Event's player field was narrowed down from 59 to the final 18 in just six hours in Day 3, and the survivors will return to the poker tables in a few hours to battle it out for the 6 spots at the televised final table - where the winner will take home half a million dollars!
The current chip leader is Sylvain Sibert who eliminated several players in Day 3 to accumulate the top stack of 2.9 million. Other players that will bring +2 million stacks to Day 4 include Derrick Rosenbarger (2,875,000), Alexandre Lavigne (2,197,000), Antoine Berube (2,156,000), Marco Cannizzaro (2,156,000) and Mukul Pahuja (2,003,000)
Another day of action-packed poker is in the books at the Bellagio Poker Room in Las Vegas. Now there are only 24 players left, which means that just another 9 need to be eliminated before everyone's guaranteed a min-cash worth $49,120, and Amir Babakhani (player of the day) leads the pack with 1.2 million chips. Other big stacks include Brandon Steven (1,091,000), Matt Hyman (1,042,000), Hyon Kim (891,000), and Alex Phahurat (878,000).
Not familiar with any of the names above? Don't worry! Poker stars such as Dan Shak (698,000), Jason Mercier (583,000), Erick Lindgren (467,000), Jake Cody (365,000) and Daniel Negreanu (329,000) will return to play tonight and battle it out for a seat at tomorrow's final table - where a first prize of $1,150,297 is up for the grabs!
After 4 days of play at the PartyPoker World Poker Tour Canadian Spring Championship, 735 players have become only 6 who are ready for the final table. The chip leader at today's final table will be Amir Babakhani, of Canada, with 6,635,000 chips. Babakhani sent two big stacks to the rail to build his stack to the chip lead on Wednesday and now he has a fantastic chance of taking down the tournament and the $442,248 first prize. However, no matter what happens on today's final table - he's already guaranteed the biggest cash of his entire tournament carrer.
