After nearly six levels of play, the World Series of Poker Main Event eventually played into the money last night. That means 1,084 players will return for Day 4 with a min-cash secured but while some will be happy with those $15,000 results, others will look to use moving day to put themselves in positions to make deep Main Event runs.
Sofia Lövgren is one of those players, as the Swedish professional returns for Day 4 just under the 1,000,000 chip mark and headlining the PokerGO and ESPN feature table. Lövgren isn’t the only player near seven-figures though, as bracelet winner Jared Jaffee is also near that threshold, along with Canada’s Dilovan Hussein.
Former Player of the Year Jeff Lisandro takes Joe Hachem’s place carrying the Australian flag at the feature table, while Carlos Mortensen carries the past champion flag held by a few other former champions throughout the first few days of live PokerGO and ESPN coverage. Mortensen is at one the outer feature tables, with Cate Hall and Las Vegas professionals Scott Seiver and Dutch Boyd rounding out the lineup.
The second outer feature table features former November Niner Jake Balsiger, who finished 3rd in the 2012 Main Event and Brazilian professional Vivian Saliba, who is fresh off a deep run in the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship and was the youngest female player to enter this year’s Main Event.
PokerGO and ESPN’s coverage of Day 4 of the WSOP Main Event begins at 11:30 AM PT and will continue until 5 PM PT on PokerGO. The action then shifts to ESPN2 in prime time, with live coverage running from 5 PM until 8 PM PT. There is then a bonus half-hour of coverage on PokerGO to end the night, with that live broadcast concluding at 8:30 PM PT.
Event replays from past WSOP Main Event sessions can be found exclusively on PokerGO.
