There are five players remaining in Event #47: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em, and they return today for Day 4.

Timur Margolin has ended the last two days as the chip leader and is aiming to make it three days in a row. Andrew Dean starts the day fourth in chips, but nearly even with Andy Black. Matt O'Donnell rounds out the field and was pretty quiet during the last few levels of the day, but won a couple big pots, one on a bluff that no one knew was a bluff until the players discussed it 30 minutes later thanks to the stream on WSOP.com.
Play resume at 1 p.m. local time, and will continue until a winner has been determined. Stay tuned to WSOP.com for updates as a first-time bracelet winner is crowned.
