WSOP Day 4 highlights

Day 4 saw 789 players start the day and only 407 finish it to make it to Day 5 with Matt Affleck the chip leader with 1,819,000.

The biggest name to bust on Day 4 was Phil Hellmuth who had to watch is pocket rockets be defeated by a straight. After being dealt A♣ A♠ Hellmuth flat called before the flop from a late position. The flop was J♣ 10♦ 5♣. Kevin Jenkins pushed all-in with 83,000, Hellmuth then re-raised all-in with 110,000 and Jose Manuel Gomez called. Jenkins turned over 9♥ 8♥ for an open-ended straight draw, and Gomez showed J♥ 10♣ for two pair. The turn brought the 7♦ giving Jenkins the straight, and the river was the 3♠. Hellmuth out.

And Chris “Jesus” Ferguson was felted by 6 6 6, which is just a little bit eerie.

But the most unfortunate story of the day belonged to Kia Hamadani, the Main Event bubble boy. After being blinded and anted down trying to hang on to make the money, Hamadani was finally all-in with his 500 ante with 4♣ 3♥. The flop came Q♥ 6♥ Q♦. After betting 20,00 to push out the other two remaining players in the hand, Reed Hensel showed 9♥ 2♣. The turn finished it off, giving Hensel a 9♦ and then further rubbed salt in the wound with the 9♠ on the river. With Hamadani’s elimination the room burst into cheers and applause as the remaining players realized that they had made the money. But Hamadani doesn’t go away empty handed, the WSOP and Jack Link’s have agreed to buy him into the 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event, which is a nice prize for the unfortunate bubble boy.
