Welcome to Day 4 of the PokerStars Players No-Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC), which kicks off inside the wonderful Baha Mar Resort at 12 p.m. ET.
From the original field of 1,014, just 52 players are returning for the penultimate day of the PSPC, and in pole position is Petar Kalev. The Bulgarian raced into the chip lead late on in Day 3 when it looked like he would be one of the last casualties of the day. He wrapped up the session with 3,360,000 and is the only player above the 3 million mark.
His four-bet jam with ace-three suited was called by Fedor Holz, who had ace-king. Kalev would go onto river a flush to collect the pot when it looked like he would be the one heading to the rail.
Had a great day until this hand and now bagged 970K. I’ll get some good rest and then crush tomorrow # https://t.co/YiOZg6TFvw— Fedor Holz 🐧 (@CrownUpGuy)
Had Holz won the pot, he would have been sitting on a stack of 4,500,000. To put it into perspective, MSPT Hall of Famer Blake Bohn finished second in chips with 2,800,000, so the German would've had a fair bit of distance between himself and the rest of the pack.
Rounding out the top three chip stacks is high stakes cash game player Dylan Destefano. Just three big blinds seperate him and Bohn and he will be looking for more of the same today.
Just one PokerStars ambassador also remains in contention, and that player is Sam Grafton. He bagged and tagged a stack of 1,590,000 and is on the periphary of the top ten chip counts.

Hundreds of players were able to participate in this prestigious event thanks to getting their hands on a coveted Platinum Pass. However, just 16 of those have survived to this stage of the event.
Many of you who follow the poker tournament circuits would have heard of Dominik Nitsche before, and he makes up one of the 16 who are in The Bahamas thanks to a Platinum Pass. He ended up with 2,360,000 which is currently good for fourth-place.
Another Platinum Pass holder who sits in the upper echelons of the field is Tom "PredPoker" Parsons (2,265,000). He pulled off an impressive spin up on Day 3 after it looked like he may have been one of the players to bubble. By the end of the day though, he was just one of the seven players to bag more than two million and will be having dreams of capturing the $4,053,200 first-place prize.

The PSPC generated an almighty prize pool of $24,843,000 and those who are left have locked themselves a payday of at least $70,700. But of course, each player will be doing all they can to make Day 5, where the top six players guarantee themselves a seven-figure payout.
The next pay jump occurs when 39 players remain, which sees the payout increase to $81,400. The payouts hit the six-figure threshold when the tournament reaches its final 27 players.
