Four days of World Series of Poker Main Event Championsip have been played and field of 292 players remain. At the top is Spain’s Ramon Colillas, who will start Day 5 with 5 million chip stack (208 big blinds).
Bubble burst at the end of Day 3 in an unbelievable fashion as pocket aces got cracked against A9.
