Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las VegasOf the 152 players that began the World Poker Tour’s Season XI $25k Championship at the Bellagio in Las Vegas just 24 now remain heading into Day 4 of the tournament. Among the players still in the hunt for one of poker’s most coveted titles are Daniel Negreanu, Erick Lindgren, Andy Frankenberger, Jason Mercier, Dan Shak, Jake Cody, Chino Rheem, and Andrew Lichtenberger, with nine former WPT winners still in the field.

Mercier, Negreanu and Shak are all having phenomenal years, all three having well over $1,000,000 in tournament winnings in 2013, as is Steve Silverman (better known in poker circles by his online handle “Zugwatt”) who recently won the €25k EPT Grand Final High Roller tournament –which would make another seven-figure win in a $25k buy-in event all the more impressive.

Unfortunately for nine of the 24 players that still remain in the field their 2013 WPT Championship will still end with a net loss of $25,000, as just 15 players will cash in the tournament. The plan for Tuesday is to play another five levels of the tournament with the action starting at Noon local time.
