2018 WSOP Main Event: Barry Hutter leads with 5.5m chips, 310 Players Remain

Tags: 2018 WSOP, Barry Hutter, Brian Altman, Phil Ivey.
Posted on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 by "T".

Once again, the 2018 WSOP $10,000 Main Event has narrowed down its second biggest field in the history of the prestigious tournament (7,874 entries), and after a total of 41 hours of poker play so far in this event, the field of 1,182 now has only 310 players left after Day 4.

Three American poker pros finished in the top 3 spots at the end of the day, with everyone playing through five-and-a-half levels and walk out the doors after 13 hours since Day 4 started. 2015 WSOP $1,500 NLHE Shootout event winner Barry Hutter sits in the lead with 5,597,000 chips, with Alexander Haro in 2nd place with 5,031,000, and Brian Altman in 3rd with 4,861,000 chips.

Hutter was the first one to exceed 4 million and then kept on rolling during the final hour of the night to finish ahead of Haro and Altman. Hutter, a 31-year-old poker pro from Florida, has more than $4.2 million in lifetime live tournament earnings.

Brian Altman


2015 WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open main event winner Altman made the most noteworthy elimination of the day when he knocked off Phil Ivey from the feature table around midday.

Phil Ivey takes home $23,940 in this event.

  • 2016 main event third-place finisher, two-time bracelet winner Cliff Josephy (1,985,000)
  • Three-time WPT main event winner Chino Rheem (1,900,000)

The only main event winner still left with a chance to become a two-time main event champion is Joe Cada.

It is starting to get exciting again in the main event with only just over 300 players left. They can all start dreaming about being World Champion and i can't wait to see how it plays out

Really ? 300 players left still so far to final table even dreaming to be champion , I think Smile .Because of a lot unpredictable thing in poker, not just consistence performance from them. very interesting to see how many percent of them will reach final table.

This game is for players that can handle the long games and stress over the days.
Imagine being there finishing day one having in mind that you have to go the next day to continue. Big nerves there Smile

No many big names left but I would like to see Chino Rheem going very deep as he is just an absolute great tournament poker playa... Go Chino!

Is the most important game and here will demonstrate the qualities of a poker player. Who is interested to earning money from poker, will have to watch these players which have remained in this tournament. To watch carefully their game and their abilities.
 Gerimantas7/11/2018 6:12:30 AM GMT
Yes now from almost 8000 players who start the tournament there is about 300 players remain and this is small number. A lot of very big famous names in poker world are eliminated and i think some not very big name will win
