Less than 300 players remain in contention for poker’s most sought-after crown, day 4 of the World Series of Poker Main Event seeing Mike “The Mouth” Matusow among those crashing out of the chase for $8million and a place in the history books.

The original 6,550 entries has been whittled down to just 292, with the chip lead going to Ramon Colillas – the Spaniard no stranger to headlines after turning a Platinum Pass entry into a $5.1million payday at the 2019 Pokerstars Players Championship.

Another massive payday may be in the offering, but as day four showed it doesn’t take much to go from hero (of the day) to zero (chips) in Las Vegas, as day 3 chip leader Jessica Cai found out.

Cai’s 5-bet shove was called and it was bad news for Jessica, who was looking to replicate her husband’s final table run in 2019.

Cai was joined on the rail by a number of big names, Mike Matusow having to be content with a $23,900 payday, while Mustafa Kanit, Kathy Liebert, Mark Newhouse, Robert Mizrachi, and Christoph Vogelsang also fell by the wayside.

Chris Moneymaker has been having a see-saw time of things, the legendary 2003 champ doing fine until a familiar scenario arose...

England’s Stephen Chidwick is perhaps the most ominous “big name” near the top of the leaderboard, the highstakes expert bagging the 4th-biggest stack to bring into day 5 today, Saturday, November 12th, while 2016 champ Qui Nguyen is the last remaining former champ in the field.
