Day 4 at the World Poker Tour Prague Main Event has quickly come to an end, after the 21 players that initially took their seats at the start of play were dramatically reduced down to the 6 that would be battling it out on the final table on Day 5.
The day started out with 21 players but the session finished pretty quickly as 15 of them fell throughout the day. By the time it had all finished, it was Vasili Firsau that ended the day as the chip leader after bagging up 2,491,000 for the day.
That has him ever so slightly ahead of Andrey Shatilov in 2nd place with 2,427,000 but a good margin ahead of the rest of that final table.
Probably the biggest name to fall on Day 4 was that of Chanracy Khun after he could not get the cards to push himself into contention. He eventually fell in 18th place. Joining him was the likes of Daniel Laidlaw and the final table bubble boy Roger Hairabedian.
Joining him was one of the early contenders and the player that came into the day with the chip lead Marc-Etienne McLaughlin. He struggled all day and eventually fell in 14th place for a payout of $16,377.
