Day 4 completed
Another wild day is complete in Event #75: $1,111 Little One for One Drop. Day 4 didn’t play all the way down to a champion as planned, so the remaining five players will return tomorrow for an extra Day 5. The final table restart commences at 12 p.m. Friday, with play resuming at Level 41 and the blinds at 800,000/1,600,000, with a 1,600,000 big blind ante.
The remaining players took turns trading the chip lead among themselves several times throughout the latter levels of Day 4. Coming back tomorrow it's Fernando Karam in the lead with 93,500,000, followed by Liran Betito (52,400,000), James Anderson (49,200,000), Shalom Elharar (27,500,000), and Marco Guibert (23,200,000)
The field narrowed down to a nine-handed final table on the last hand before the dinner break, with Kenneth Golden going out in 10th place at the hands of Elharar with the dinner clock already ticking down after Level 36. Golden took home $47,812 for his 10th place finish.
Robert Mather was the first casualty at the final table, coming into nine-handed play short-stacked and taking home a $61,238 payday. Ying Fu took home $79,029 for his eighth-place finish, and seventh-place finisher Mark Strodl netted $102,757.
The action heated up when the final six players were moved to a secondary feature table in the Amazon Room. Nils Tolpingrud was the first casualty of the six-handed table. Tolpingrud banked $134,608 for his sixth-place finish.
Other notable eliminations on Day 4 included Mike Dentale, who built a big chip lead in the early levels of the day before enduring a run that saw him lose several pots losing pots as the afternoon wore on. Dentale finished 22nd for $23,825, after looking like he had a chance to make a challenge for the bracelet.
With $690,686 up for grabs and the WSOP bracelet, this dynamic group at the final table will surely provide an entertaining climax to this event.
