Just 17 players will return for Day 4 action in Event #21: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em MILLIONAIRE MAKER at 11:00 a.m. local time. Each player has locked up a payday of at least $51,188, but all eyes are on the top prize of $1,173,223 and WSOP gold bracelet.
Leading the way is Chad Hahn with 6,525,000 chips. Hahn won a key pot late on Day 3 when he turned a set of queens against James Mackey's aces for a huge double-up. But his lead is a narrow one; Sean Marshall bagged 6,160,000 chips at the conclusion of Day 3 play.
Furthermore, with Ralph Massey (4,435,000), Justin Liberto (3,337,000), Manig Loeser (3,040,000), Barny Boatman (1,150,000), and 2015 Main Event champion Joe McKeehen (4,210,000) still in the hunt, the path to victory won't be easy for anybody. McKeehen is looking to become the second Main Event winner to score a third career bracelet this summer after Joe Cada took down Event #3: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout.
Blinds will be 50,000/100,000 with a 5,000-chip ante when play resumes at Level 31. The remainder of the field is scheduled to play down to a winner today.
