Welcome to Day 4 of Event #43: $1,000 Double Stack No-Limit Hold’em. Getting underway at 12 p.m. local time, the 17 remaining players will be battling it out for a spot at the final table. Those who make the final day of action on Wednesday, October 27 will have the chance to win a coveted World Series of Poker Bracelet and the grand prize of $446,983.
The start of day chip leader is Michael Wang, who begins today's proceedings with a massive 24.3 million chip stack. Wang already owns a WSOP Bracelet, coming in 2015 when he won Event #2: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em for $466,120.
Wang has amassed an impressive WSOP résumé since then, as he is one of the poker world’s most consistent participants and cashers. He will no doubt be looking to use that experience and his large stack to his advantage for today's action.
Sejin Park of South Korea is another bracelet winner who is still alive, he's currently third largest stack with 13,325,000. Park has a solid 2021 WSOP so far as he is now enjoying his fifth cash. Park is no stranger to navigating massive field tournaments as his lone bracelet came in 2019 when he took down the $400 No-Limit Hold'em-Colossus, beating a field of a whopping 13,109 entrants to win his career-best score of $451,272.
Jonathan Dokler is the other bracelet winner remaining in the field. Dokler took down the $500 Kick-Off 2020 WSOP Online for his first WSOP bracelet, and like Wang and Park, will be searching for his second. Dokler enters the day as a serious threat with 12,875,000 chips.
While happy to have made such a deep run already, the entire remaining field of 17 will be hungry to ladder up and ultimately try to win the bracelet.
One of the other most notable remaining players is popular PokerGO commentator Jeff Platt who enters the day right in the middle of the chip counts in ninth place with 8,075,000. Platt has built up quite the social media support during this run thanks to making the headlines with his big stack on Day 3. Many will be hoping he can make a push to the final table.
Also among the remaining players is short stack David Guay (3,800,000) who has made two deep WSOP Main Event runs in the past five years, coming in 22nd and 62nd in 2017 and 2019 respectively.
Play is set to begin with blinds coming back at 150,000/300,000 with a 300,000 big blind ante. The intention is to play as many 60-minute levels as necessary to get down to five players. The final five players will then play to a winner on Wednesday, October 27.
PokerNews will have all the chip count updates, hands and stories that will stem from Day 4.
