WPT World Championship Day 4 Report

Chip Leader Mark Mounsey
After the conclusion of the fourth day of the WPT world championship at Wynn Las Vegas, there are just 45 players left in contention for a shot at the $5,678,000 first prize. All remaining players are now guaranteed at least a six-figure score which for some will be the biggest poker pay day of their lives. There are several players bunched together at the top of the leaderboard, with Mark Mounsey leading the way on 18,725,000 chips. Maxime Chilaud, GG Poker’s Ren Lin and Rapheal Blouet are all not far behind the chip leader, with the UK’s Ben Heath in fifth place. 

Bust Outs

Two thirds of the 132 players who started day four were eliminated, including the last remaining WSOP main event champion Joe Cada. It was also the end of the road for British players Jack Hardcastle (60th for $80,700) and Stuart Rutter (73rd for $60,800), who are both double GUKPT champions and well respected on the UK poker scene. 
Fraser MacIntyre
Scotsman Fraser MacIntyre’s deep run is now over, as the Ayr United FC’s Vice Chairman busted in 119th place for $41,900.

Brad Owen and Lyle Berman also bit the felt on day four, finishing in 88th and 89th places, as did former WPT Champions Ben Palmer (91st), Alessia Isaia (94th), David Kitai (101st) and Vitalijs Zavorontnijs (125th). 

Three Former WPT Champions Remain

There are just three WPT main event champions left in the running, two of whom - Chris Moorman (14th on 10,200,00) and Roberto Romanello (36th on 4,050,000) - are British.

Poker playing couple Alex and Kristen Foxen are both having a great tournament, Kristen lying in 13th place on 10,300,000 while her husband Alex, the third former WPT Champion left, languishes in 35th place with 4,425,000 chips. 

Peachy Times For Princess Love

Princess Love
Also still in there is actress and reality TV star Princess Love Norwood, on 3,625,000 chips and in 38th place of the remaining 45 competitors. The Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood star was supported on the rail by her singer husband Ray J. 

Princess Love only started playing in live poker tournaments earlier this year, winning her very first event, a $300 NL Hold’em event in April, also at Wynn Las Vegas. She scooped $11,629 for that success and went on to cash three times in the 54th WSOP this summer. Her biggest cash prior to the WPT World Championship was $80,156 for second place in a $5,000 StormX Invitational event, screened on PokerGo in October. 

Day 4 Survivors Chip Counts

Australian Naj Ajez, who led the field going into day 4 is still near the top of the leaderboard, currently in 7th place with 14.600,000. LearnWPT’s Andrew “LuckyChewy” Lichtenberger on 11,100,000 is in 11th place, as is Brazilian Mateus Carrion, who led the field on day 1d.
