Ден 4 Приключил
Only 11 players remain in the chase for $1.5 million at the partypoker 2018 Caribbean Poker Party at Baha Mar Resort in The Bahamas. They've gotten through a field of 1,815 and one of them will claim that massive pile of dough on Saturday.
Atop the counts sits a WSOP bracelet winner, although he isn't exactly a household name among most poker fans. It's Russia's Konstantin Maslak — a 2015 winner in stud hi-lo — who bagged the lead, and he's actually just as well known for his exploits in another game: chess.
Maslak attained the coveted title of Grandmaster in that strategy game and has proven his chops in poker as well to the tune of nearly $700,000 in cashes.
The Russian finished Day 4 with 292.5 million, putting him a decent bit clear of closest competitor Pascal Hartmann. He wound up with 238 million. Joe Kuether (228 million), 2018 bracelet winner Diogo Veiga (162.5 million) and 2018 WSOP Main Event seventh-place finisher Alex Lynskey also remain in contention.
Here's how they'll look when play resumes:
|Seat||Table 1||Chip Count||Table 2||Chip Count|
|2||Craig Mason||208,000,000||Filipe Oliveira||181,500,000|
|5||Marc MacDonnell||95,500,000||Konstantin Maslak||292,500,000|
|8||Alex Turyansky||104,000,000||Niek van der Sluijs||82,000,000|
Romain Lewis, Vladimir Troyanovskiy, Joe Cassidy, Taylor Black, Freddy Deeb, Simon Deadman and partypoker's own Dayane Kotoviezy, Marcel Luske and Richard Dubini were among those making Day 4 and busting during the course of play.
Everyone left is guaranteed at least $85,000. They'll resume play at noon on Saturday and play until someone has laid claim to the $1.5 million first-place prize. Stay tuned to PokerNews and the partypoker live stream to find out who it will be.
