Athanasios Polychronopoulos is the chipleader going into Day 4.

Only four players remain in the $1,500 No Limit Hold'em event after three days of action. Athanasios Polychronopoulos, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Peter Ippolito and Simon Charette return to fight for the bracelet after surviving a field of 2,713 players.

A Day 4 restart has not seen more than three blind levels so far in the Series. The blinds are climbing and the stacks are close, so it's anybody's ball game.

Late in play during Day 3 each of the four remaining players had the chip lead at one point or another. Just 1.4 million separates the chipleader and the smallest stack.

The final table is kicking off at 2:30 p.m. PST in the ESPN Feature Stage in the Amazon Room. Follow all the WSOP action live on
