Level 4 is in the books, and even though it only took two hours, a lot happened in that period of time. For one, the World Series of Poker officials announced that this tournament, Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event, has officially attracted 6,352 players and created a prize pool of $59,708,800. The exact payout structure has yet to be determined, but the eventual winner will be taking home $8,359,531.
In addition to that, players were treated the extremely rare (any math wizards out there?) treat of a royal flush being out on the board; Tom "durrrr" Dwan entered the tournament without actually showing up (he's being blinded off); and Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi continued to chip up.
It was also in Level 4 that Daniel Negreanu took a big hit to his stack, Ryan Laplante and Aaron Massey hit the rail, and FC Barcelona and Spain superstar Gerard Piqué was spotted in the field.
As you can see, it was a very active level and there's still one more to be played here on Day 1c. The action will resume in 20 minutes, so join us then to see who can make it through to Day 2c.
