Prior bracelet winner Barry Hutter leads 310 survivors into Day 5 with an impressive 5,597,000 in chips as part of the poker world's largest tournament, the World Series of Poker.

Phil Ivey, the 10-time bracelet winner, was among those who busted out on Sunday.  He had made a strong surge on Day and added more chips to his stack early on Day 4, cresting well over the million-chip mark. However, Ivey crashed quickly and exited roughly halfway through the day's session.

Day 4's bustout list included dozens of talented, feared players who ended up on the wrong side of the cards' fortune this day. Among the many notables who cashed but didn't survive the Day 4 carnage were Lacey Jones, Max Altergott, Ryan LaPlante, Jan-Eric Schwippert, Jake Cody, Jason Strasser, Pierre Neuville, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Kevin MacPhee, TJ Shulman, Barry Greenstein, Joe Ebanks, Patrik Antonius, Chris Klodnicki, Taylor Paur, Loni Harwood, Alex Bolotin, Allen Cunningham, Jonathan Tamayo, Per Hildebrand, Amir Lehavot, Steven Snyder, Steve Billirakis, 1987 and 1988 Main Event winner Johnny Chan, Damian Salas, Men Nguyen, Jessica Dawley, Todd Brunson, Shawn Buchanan, Kristen Bicknell, Jean Gaspard, Ian Johns, Dan Heimiller, 1983 Main Event champ Tom McEvoy, earlier leader Frankie Flowers, Robert Hankins, Jason Lester, 2010 Main Event champ Jonathan Duhamel, Liv Boeree, and Phil Ivey.

Just outside the top ten are Shannon Shorr and Brian Yoon, both over three million. A host of big names bagged more than two million, including Benjamin Pollak, James Obst, James Akenhead, and Shaun Deeb, who still had a couple of hours of PLO to play after the Main Event bagged for the night.

Others moving on to Day 5 include Cliff Josephy, Chino Rheem, Sylvain Loosli, Ben Yu, Eric Froelich, Ivan Demidov, Antonio Esfandiari, Yueqi Zhu, Paul Volpe, Bart Lybaert, Daniel Alaei, Chris Moorman, 2009 Main Event winner Joe Cada, Chris Bjorin, and Joe Kuether.

Play resumes 2 pm EDT Monday.
