Day 4 at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event saw some massive changes in the order as the field of 78 players all tried their best to finish the day as one of the 20 survivors. That meant we had to see 58 of them head out of the event, but at least they all made a profit by cashing.
The new leader after Day 4 is Madis Muur on 3,515,000 though with a former EPT champion in Mike McDonald right on his tail with 3,432,000.
Glad I made it out of that washroom, 2/20 going into tmrw. Ran silly hot all day

Right behind those two in the top ten is the likes of Antoine Saout, Max Silver and Fabian Ortiz, which means Day 5 is already promising to be a tight affair. The leaders are not too far in front and a double up is enough to put anyone in the top seven right at the top of the pile.

It was a bad day for some at the tables on Day 4, as out went Liv Boeree, Angel Guillen, Marcel Luske and Vanessa Selbst who actually started the day as one of the chip leaders.
Lost TT < AQ to bust. Not my day for flips. Gl everyone.

Got up to 600k then lost a 1.2m pot all in pre with QQ vs AK. Still, had a great run and finished 50th. Thanks for all your support! #PCA10

Some of those who were eliminated jumped straight into the PCA High Roller such as Vanessa Selbst, so they didn’t have too much time to dwell on being sent out of this event.
Day 5 will charge the remaining 20 players to get themselves firmly planted onto the official final table of eight. This is where the big money starts coming in and the players can star realistically believing they have a shot at an EPT Main Event title.
