That's It for Day 4: Lane Leads; Defending Champion Merson Still Alive

Jon Lane

What a day of poker that has wrapped up in the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event. Today was Day 4 of the greatest tournament of the year, and it was a barn burner to say the least. The money bubble burst, a record was tied, a living legend busted, stars emerged, and the defending champion survived — all in just five levels of play.

Let's first start with the money bubble, as that's where it all mattered to start the day. Coming into Day 4, 666 players remained. Only 648 of those would cash, and that meant 18 competitors would be sent packing with nothing to show for their long days of effort. The player earning the most unwanted title of the tournament, bubble boy, was three-time WSOP gold bracelet winner Farzad Bonyadi.

In Level 16 with the blinds at 2,500/5,000/500, Bonyadi got involved in a hand with Nick Schwarmann, who had raised to 12,000 preflop in middle position. Bonyadi called in position on his opponent, and the two players saw the flop come down    . Schwarmann checked, Bonyadi bet 14,000, and Schwarmann check-raised to 37,000. Bonyadi called.

The turn was the  , and Schwarmann led with 54,000. Bonyadi called, and the river completed the board with the  . Schwarmann put Bonyadi all in, and according to Schwarmann after the hand, Bonyadi snap-called. After all other tables had finished action, the hands were revealed to show Bonyadi with the    and Schwarmann with the   . Bonyadi had but a pair of jacks, and Schwarmann had a Broadway straight to win the hand.

Two players to reach the money were Ronnie Bardah and Christian Harder. By making it to a cash, both had done so for the fourth year in a row in the Main Event, tying the record held by Chris Bjorin. Harder went on to finish in 608th place for $19,106 while Bardah made it to the bag-and-tag portion of the night and will return for Day 5 with 932,000 in chips.

With all of the remaining 648 players in the money, the eliminations came fast and furious, but none were more notable than 10-time WSOP gold bracelet winner and two-time Main Event champion Doyle Brunson.

In Level 18 with the blinds at 4,000/8,000/1,000, Brunson called all in with the    against the    for Sergei Stazhkov. The board ran out      , and Brunson was eliminated to a standing applause from the entire tournament room.

Throughout the day, many players took a turn at holding the chip lead. With every new level brought two or three more players swapping out time spent holding the top spot. At the end of the night, though, it was Jon Lane leading the way, but he wasn't the only player to advance with heavy artillery. Grayson Ramage (2,438,000), Amir Lehavot (1,783,000), David Benefield (1,675,000), Rachid Ben Cherif (1,649,000), Jackie Glazier (1,595,000), Rep Porter (1,526,000), Joshua Prager (1,237,000) and Annette Obrestad (1,186,000) all finished well into the seven figures.

Lane snatched the chip lead when he busted Nicholas Immekus in Level 20 in a pot worth more than 1,000,000. Lane's    held against Immekus'    to vault him to 2,700,000 in chips, and he went on to bag up 2,839,000.

Although not doing quite as well as some of his competitors, the defending champion Greg Merson is very healthy moving forward after bagging up 635,000 in chips. Merson was seated on multiple feature tables throughout the day, and played a steady, solid game of poker. Merson began the day with 390,000 in chips, making for a nice addition of 245,000 on the day. At the conclusion of Day 4 last year, Merson finished on 376,000 with 282 players remaining. As the story goes, Merson went on to win the event, and could very well be celebrating 19 months sober with another spectacular Main Event splash.

Day 5 will commence on Saturday at 12 p.m. local Las Vegas time. With 239 players remaining, the field should easily work it's way down to under 100 players, and you won't want to miss a thing. Be sure to keep it locked right here to PokerNews for all the coverage from the 2013 WSOP Main Event as we bring it to you live. Until tomorrow, goodnight from Las Vegas!

Gazes Finds a Double

Kristy Gazes hasn't gotten involved often today, but she's certainly picked her spots well when she has. With just a few minutes remaining before the end of the day, Gazes three-bet-shoved for 154,000 from the big blind, and the original raiser (Aleksejs Ponakovs) called from early position.


There was very little drama as the board ran out      , giving Gazes the much-needed double.

Rustom Catches Jaffe Bluffing

No more then ten minutes after we caught Jonathan Jaffe scooping a huge pot, he has bluffed most of it away in a huge pot to Sami Rustom. We caught up with the action on the turn, with the board showing     . Rustom had a bet of 150,000 in front of him, but it was a raise of a previous Jaffe bet, as Jaffe put out a reraise of 235,000 total. Rustom made the call, and the   came on the river. Jaffe checked it this time to Rustom, and he fired out a bet of 125,000.

Jaffe decided to go the check raise the river route, and put out a raise of 265,000. Rustom went into the tank for a bit before finding a call, and Jaffe announced "queen high," and tabled   . Rustom showed    for trip fives, and he took down a monster pot off of Jaffe in one of the last hands of the night.

Speta Full House Ends Sherman's Run

In one of the last hands of the night, Dustin Speta and Adam Sherman were battling over a pot that had reached the turn with the board showing     . That was when all of Sherman's remaining chips found their way into the middle with him holding   , but alas for him Speta had   , making the river   no matter.

Sherman hit the rail, and afterwards Keanu Tabali joked with Speta that he was nervous on the turn.

"You put him on quads, didn't you?" joked Tabali. "But you said screw it, I'm going with it!" Speta laughed in response.

Glazier Takes More From Merson

Jackie Glazier opened to 27,000 in early position and Greg Merson defended his big blind.

The flop came down     and Merson checked to Glazier who bet 33,000. Merson check-raised to 102,000, resulting in a Glazier shove with the bigger stack. Merson folded immediately and Glazier took down the pot.

Jaffe Wins Lengthy Hand

Jonathan Jaffe and Adam Sherman were part of a three way flop that read    . The first player checked to Jaffe, who fired out 32,000. Sherman folded, and the other player folded to make it a heads up pot. The turn was the  , and Jaffe checked this time to Sherman, who fired out 65,000. Jaffe tossed in the call, then things got interesting.

The   came on the river, and Jaffe thought it over for about a minute before suddenly announcing all in. The pot had about 275,000 and each player was sitting on 500,000 so it was quite an overbet. Sherman immediately rolled his eyes when he heard the bet, and he went deep, deep into the tank. He thought it over for at least six minutes, talking to himself about what Jaffe could have most of the time. All the while, Jaffe sat still without moving a muscle. It hardly looked like he was even breathing he was so still, and Sherman was unable to get a read on him. He continued to talk the hand through, when someone at the table finally called a clock.

As soon as the floor came over, Jaffe suddenly stood up to stretch his legs out and crack his neck. He then sat back down and assumed the same pose, and Sherman, who looked like he was ready to fold two or three time already, finally flicked his cards to the dealer.

The table urged Jaffe to show the bluff. Jaffe smiled, mucked his hand, and said "If I had a bluff I'd show you." A couple players at the table seemed to think that was a bluff, but Jaffe just took in the chips, upping his stack to 830,000.

The Price is Right

Oliver Price and Ryan Riess checked on a flop of    . David Stephens fired out 50,000, and while Price was in the process of check-raising all in for 276,000, Stephens left the table momentarily. He returned to his seat as Riess entered the tank, and eventually Riess folded.

Stephens snap-called.


Stephens was in great shape to score the knockout, until the turn and river came  ,   respectively to give Price a straight. He more than doubled to 600,000 chips, while Price fell to 1.125 million.

Riess announced that he folded kings with the  , and folded kings preflop on Day 3 only to be shown two aces.

Language Barriers

Raul Paez, shown here in a Razz tournament earlier this summer, tried to help translate.

Poker's an international game, but sometimes it's not an international language.

Olaoluwa Okelola shoved all in against an opponent on a flop of    . Someone called the clock while the player was tanking, and the tournament director was having quite a time trying to let the player know he his time had run out.

"Can anyone interpret in Italian?" the supervisor asked with exasperation.

Swedish player Fredrik Halling and Spanish player Raul Paez did their best to get the point across to the man that he had 20 seconds to act on his hand. Finally, Halling began counting down on his fingers. The player evidently got the point, as he stood up and folded his hand.

Seaver Kyaw Doubles With Improbable Ace on the River

We heard a loud roar from one of the feature tables, so we ran over to discover that Seaver Kyaw had won a pot worth nearly 2 million. And the way he did it was nothing short of amazing.

Kyaw was all in for 964,000 preflop with    against Nikolai Sears, who had   . The flop came down    , giving Sears top set, although you'd never know it because we didn't hear a peep from the table. The turn was the  , and Kyaw picked up outs to a straight. The river: the  , and Kyaw shot out of his seat and over to his rail, who joined in with his loud celebration. After the stacks were counted down, Sears was left shaking his head with just 555,000 to work with, and Kyaw was sitting on nearly 2 million.

Amit Makhija, who finished 47th in the 2012 Main Event, opened to 25,000 from the hijack seat. Nicolas Le Floch three-bet to 72,000 out of the big blind, Makhija tank-called, and Le Floch led out for 67,000 on a flop of    . Makhija called.

The turn was the  , Le Floch tossed out another 175,000, and Makhija called.

A repeat nine - the   - completed the board, and Le Floch emptied the chamber moving all in for 416,000. Makhija took a sip of his beer, and Le Floch toasted him from across the table with his own beer bottle.

"You show if I fold?" Makhija asked Le Floch, who buried his head in the rail.

A minute or so passed.

"You show if I fold?" Makhija repeated.

Le Floch refused to respond, but when Makhija finally folded, Le Floch showed    for a full house.

"I'm more interested in his hand," Bryan Pellegrino said afterwards, pointing to Makhija. "Sick fold anyway."
