Day 4 of the WSOP Main Event started with 800 players after being whittled down yesterday to reach the money. After a long day of play, 1,011 players made the money. Yesterday saw one of the odder money bubble moments in WSOP history when that stress filled, anxiety filled bubble burst.
As the players got ready to play hand for hand when the ticker showed 1,012 players left, tournament director Jack Effel was just about to announce that hand for hand for play would begin, when his speech was cut short.
His interruption was due to the departure of Adam Furgatch when his Queen Nine hand lost to Ace seven when it failed to connect on what all players saw as the best had of the tournament so far.
Busting out of ay tournament is always a depressing moment regardless of the stakes. Busting out of the most prestigious tournament in the world as the bubble boy, should be one of the worse moments in your poker life.
Adam is perhaps the world's happiest bubble boy in poker history. Prior to going all in and busting out, he had just one blind left, he knew he was all but out of the game. So busting out on the bubble gave him his 15 minutes of fame that he took with a great attitude.
His buy in is paid for next year's WSOP main event as expected, and he was ready to move on to the next tournament. After busting out, he asked if it was too late to register for the little one for one drop tournament. And he did it all with a smile.
Now that players are in the money, we can look forward to seeing who will move in position for the win, and who will go down in a blaze of glory.
As of Friday night, we have just 380 players out of the 6,737. Brazils Rafael Moraes is our chip leader with 3.4 million in chips. Yesterday's chip leader, Kenny Hallaert sits in 35th after he had an uneventful day pretty much sitting in neutral.
Melanie Weisner is also still in the field and sits in 11th place. Brandon Adams has moved in to the top 15. Shaun Deeb remains in the top 30, as well as Tom Marchese and Scott Montgomery.
The crowd favorite right now is past champion Jonny Chan. He has an average stack with 620,000 chips and is in 112th place. Chan has had little to no results in poker over the past few years and is everyone's favorite to make the final table.
