WSOP Event #4: $1,500 Six-Handed NLHE Day 1 Finished

Greg Hobson in Event #4The action in the Event #4 was fast as the short-handed tables attracted more players to raise with a looser hand selection, and more hands per minute than your average World Series of Poker tournament.

The $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em event got underway in Las Vegas with 1,069 entrants vying for the 4th bracelet to be handed out for this year’s 62 event World Series of Poker. First place has been announced as a $324,764 pay-off for the winner with a prize pool that rose to $1,443,150.

By the end of the day all the players had grinded their way through 10 levels of 6-handed action, and it was Greg Hobson who ended the day with his pride still intact at the top of the chip leader board for event number 4. He just held on to the lead after losing 19,500 chips, with blinds at 400/800, but he still remains with 160,500 to run into his Day 2 challengers with.

Not too far behind him holding 127,000 chips is Joe Cada, who came 2nd in last year’s No Limit Hold’em $1,500 Event 31 winning $412,424 after getting through 2811, which made it his 8th WSOP cash, since he first arrived on the WSOP in the 2009 40th WSOP event when he became the youngest ever champ at the time winning $8,546,435 in the $10,000 World Championship Event. Currently he has $9,373,921 in tournament earnings and is one of the favourites to make the final table.

For Day 2 there just 117 players left to work the field before we get to a final table that will settled on Day 3. There will be 6 left when we get to the final table and the split of the prize pool has already been announced with the bubble starting at 108th place where 91st-108th will get $2,871 for their efforts.
