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.
