The fourth day of the $50,000 buy-in Poker Players' Championship has now concluded. The day started at 2 p.m. local time with the remaining 26 players of a 132-player field. The field was narrowed down to a final table with 8 players after four and half levels of play. Don Nguyen, from USA, never let go of the chip lead during Day 4 and will now bring a 5,680,000 stack to tomorrow's final table.
Although he has a pretty decent lead over the other 7 finalists, he will have to play extremely well on the final table if he wants to lay hands on the $1.7 million first prize. He's up against some very good, and experienced, tournament players (just have a look at the chip counts below and you'll catch my drift).
