Day 4 at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open again displayed the usual high quality of poker that has been running throughout the event as it has now revealed the six players that will be fighting it out on the final table.
There were 21 players that initially took their seats on Day 4 but that figure was reduced to six after just four hours of play. The man sitting at the top of the chip counts is Blair Hinkle after he has amassed a huge stack of 22,800,000 chips throughout the event so far.
He leads a final table that has Justin Bonomo right behind him on 18,500,000 and Ray Qartomy sitting in third with 13,050,000 chips.

Out went David Sands, Griffin Benger and Jeremy Kottler as the more notable of the players on Day 4, though they all went away with a payday at least. They will now be looking forward to the start of the European Poker Tour Barcelona event that starts in the next few days.
Busted in 15th for 90k. Exceptionally well run series here at the Seminole Hard rock. Thanks to all you out there for the support! — David Doc Sands (@Doc_Sands) August 27, 2013
