Day 4 of the 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $5,300 Main Event came to a close Tuesday night following the completion of another five levels of play.

Going back to Day 2 of the event, it's been the Leonardo Pires show. He finished atop the surviving 195 players at the end of action on Sunday, maintained that lead throughout Day 3 on Monday while the field worked its way into the money, and most recently finished with the largest stack after Day 4. Pires' style can best be described as unconventionally aggressive. He does a lot of interesting things when he's involved in a pot, but his play certainly doesn't lack excitement.

Pires bagged up 4.566 million at the end of Day 4 and finished with a healthy lead on top of the pack of the final 19.

Bunched in behind Pires were Randy Kritzer (2.385 million), Fabian Ortiz (2.309 million), Timothy Ulmer (2.2 million), Phillip McAllister (2.152 million), and David Eldridge (2.1 million).

When the day began, just 73 competitors remained from the starting field of 928. As the day wore on, the event lost Davidi Kitai (70th), Jeff Gross (68th), Shawn Buchanan (60th), Ramin Hajiyev (47th), Felipe Ramos (45th), Jonathan Jaffe (37th), Jason Koon (34th), John Racener (21st), and Jason Mercier (20th).

Mercier went out in the final level of Day 4. With the blinds at 10,000/20,000/3,000, Mercier moved all in from the button for about 345,000 after Ami Barer had opened to 45,000. Barer called with the {A-Clubs}{A-Spades}, and Mercier showed a crushed {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}. The board ran out {9-Spades}{6-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{A-Hearts}{3-Hearts}, and Mercier was gone with a $32,360 payday.

Barer went on to finish the day with 679,000 in chips.

Also remaining in the field going to Day 5 was Tony Gregg, a two-time final table player in this event. In 2009, Gregg placed second. In 2012, he took sixth. He bagged up 1.091 million after play on Tuesday, and we'll see if he can finally book the win in the event he seems to always perform well in.

Others who remained were Stephen Chidwick (1.428 million), Toby Lewis (1.396 million), Matt Waxman (1.228 million), Mike Watson (952,000), Vladimir Troyanovskiy (612,000), Fedor Holz (453,000), and Taylor Paur (400,000).

The final 19 players will return for Day 5 on Wednesday at 12 p.m. local time. The plan will be to make it down to the final table of six, but we'll see how that goes. As you've come to expect all tournament long, you can find continued coverage right here on PokerNews.com.

Penultimate Hand to Demlakian

[user249920] • Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Leonardo Pires opened for 67,000 in middle position and got calls from Randy Kritzer in the cutoff and big blind Ken Demlakian. Action checked to the Kritzer, who bet 80,000 on the {j-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{10-Spades} flop. Both players called, seeing a {k-Diamonds} fall. Check-check to Kritzer, who bet 200,000 this time. Demlakian called once more, and a {3-Hearts} completed the board. Instead of a third check, Demlakian announced he was all in. Kritzer started in his seat and then mucked, showing the {k-Clubs}.

Demlakian turned over only the {3-Spades} before raking in the pot.

Bad Runout for Demlakian

[user249920] • Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

On a board of {8-Spades}{k-Spades}{j-Spades}{9-Spades} in what appeared to be a four-way limped pot, big blind Leonardo Pires bet 125,000. Only Ken Demlakian called, from the cutoff. On the {9-Hearts} river, Pires jammed to put Demlakian at risk for about 950,000. Demlakian shrugged, looked at his cards, and mucked {q-Spades}{7-Spades} face-up.

Toby Lewis gets a fist bump from Fedor Holz

On the last hand of the night at the feature table, Toby Lewis raised to 45,000 from the under-the-gun position. Martin McCormick reraised to 100,000 from the cutoff seat, and then Matt Waxman called from the small blind. Lewis reraised all in for 629,000, and McCormick tank-folded. Waxman quickly called with the {Q-Hearts}{Q-Spades}, but he saw the bad news when Lewis tabled the {A-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}.

The {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{8-Spades}{A-Clubs} board secured Lewis the double up, and Waxman was left with 1.228 million in chips.

Kritzer Wins a Huge Pot Three Ways

• Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante

Randy Kritzer just shot to one of the biggest stacks in the field, overtaking Phillip McAllister and winning a huge chunk off Ken Demlakian.

The three players were looking at a board of {7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{3-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} and Kritzer bet 125,000. Demlakian called before McAllister raised to 445,000. It didn't take long for Kritzer and Demlakian to both call.

Kritzer showed {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds} for a flush and won the pot, much to Demlakian's dismay.

Randy Kritzer

Leonardo Pires raised to 60,000 from middle position, Randy Kritzer called from the hijack seat, David Eldridge called from the cutoff seat, and Ken Demlakian called out of the small blind.

The flop was {Q-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}, and Pires tried to check, again forgetting that it was Demlakian to act before him. Demlakian then bet 130,00, and Pires folded. Kritzer announced that he was all in for approximately 1.225 million, and Eldridge folded behind him. Demlakian also gave it up, and Kritzer won the pot.
