Gone was the excitement and camaraderie among the 1,286 who secured themselves a $15,000 payday. Instead, the tournament was underlined by an excited tension that came with players realizing that their Main Event journeys will stretch into a fifth day. Not all players will say it, but every remaining hopeful will be thinking that they could win the WSOP Main Event.

Each and every one of the 354 players through to Day 5 know that they have a long way ahead of them to win the Main Event and will be looking up the leaderboard when play resumes on July 10th at noon.

That leaderboard includes some big names with big stacks, such as Day 3 chip leader Preben Stokkan (2,900,000), former American footballer and three-time Superbowl winner Richard Seymour (2,750,000), former WSOP bracelet winners Antonio Esfandiari (2,583,000) and Craig McCorkell (2,580,000), Romain Lewis (2,368,000), Dario Sammartino (2,302,000), Todd Brunson (1,151,000), Mike Matusow (726,000) and 2013 WSOP Main Event runner-up Jay Farber (436,000).
