Matt Berkey Brings a Big Lead Into Day 4
They are going to overtime in the Little One for One Drop as 12 players are returning for an unscheduled fourth day to find out who will be winning the final WSOP bracelet event of the summer. The big chip leader is also the biggest name left in the field: Matt Berkey. Berkey was near the top of the counts for most of yesterday, but hit a late surge in the last two levels that saw him bag a massive stack of 12 million. His next-closest competitor, Giuseppe Pantaleo, has less than half of that with 5.175 million.
The other big story in the field today is Dejuante Alexander. He came oh so close to his first WSOP bracelet earlier this summer when he finished runner-up in the Millionaire Maker to Pablo Mariz. Alexander took a tough beat heads up when his aces were cracked by the pocket threes of Mariz. He will be looking for redemption here today, but he has some work to do with a below-average stack.
Below you will see the seating chart for the remaining 12 players today. The action will be picking up at 2 p.m. and Pokernews will be doing updates until a winner is decided. Once they get down to the final nine players, hand-for-hand updates will be provided, so make sure you come back then for all of the action!
