Day 4, the penultimate day of the 2013 Aussie Millions Main Event, is set to begin in 60 minutes or so. The chip leader is Australian Ray Ellis, who was the only player to bag over one million chips. In second place is Finnish poker legend Patrik Antonius, who has 957,000 chips, and among the survivors are Brandon Adams, James Obst, Phil Ivey, and Dan Shak.

Antonius shot up the chip counts on Day 3 thanks to this hand against Adam Carlton. Antonius fell below one million chips during the last level of play, but should be very dangerous with the second-largest stack on the room.

The eyeballs that are not on Antonius will surely be on Mr. Ivey. Ivey was unable to defend his title in the $250,000 Challenge last night because it is a two-day event, which means he has all of the motivation in the world to make this deep run count.

Also still in the field is last year's Aussie Millions Main Event second-place finisher, Kenny Wong, as well as his girlfriend, Jay Tan. The two were put to the WAG Diaries challenge on Day 2:
