That brings an end to Day 4 of the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship. We've whittled the field down from 21 to our final 8 who will return tomorrow under the bright lights and ESPN cameras to play it out for the Chip Reese Memorial Trophy and $1.55 million in prize money.
For only the second time in World Series of Poker history, a pair of brothers has made the final table together. Ross and Barny Boatman were the first, finishing seventh and ninth in a 2002 pot-limit Omaha event, and now Robert and Michael Mizrachi will go toe-to-toe tomorrow to see who wins family bragging rights. While Robert already has a WSOP bracelet, earned in the 2007 $10,000 World Championship Pot-Limit Omaha event, Michael is looking for his first one.
Also gunning for their first bracelet are David Baker, Mikael Thuritz, David Oppenheim and Vladmir Schmelev. Daniel Alaei picked up his second bracelet last summer in the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo World Championship, while John Juanda is the veteran of this group with four WSOP wins including the 2008 WSOP-Europe Main Event.
Here's a look at the official final table seating assignments and chip counts:
Seat 1: David Baker - 3,095,000
Seat 2: Mikael Thuritz - 2,300,000
Seat 3: Vladimir Schmelev - 1,925,000
Seat 4: John Juanda - 2,620,000
