Europeans in the Running At WPT World Championships
Day 4 of the WPT World Championships has come to an end at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, and it saw two great Brit cashes to add to the drama.
Londoner Liv Boeree bust out in 37th place for a post-$40,000 payday and Hendon Mobster Barny Boatman followed soon after for the same payout. Obviously distraught, the bustout was tempered by the sight of brother Ross going great guns, who, despite a tussle with Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier, survived the day in a solid position with over 1.5 million chips.
Others to hit the rail on Day 4 included Phil Ivey, who can now go ahead and charter that private jet to Monte Carlo for the EPT Grand Final he was spotted boasting about at the tables, and Chris 'Jesus' Ferguson, who departed when all in with Q9 against Eric Liu's 33 on a final board of 876A3. Liu won the pot with a set of threes, and Chris Ferguson was eliminated in 28th place.
24 players now return for a shortened Day 5 with New Yorker Eugene Katchalov in a commanding chip lead.
