Welcome to Day 4 of Event No. 55, the $50,000 Poker Player's Championship! Just 29 of the 128 who entered this event remain with chips. Yet after fighting through three tough days and fifteen 100-minute levels, no one has won anything yet, as only the top 16 finishers make the money.

It was a day of wild swings yesterday, with many players bouncing back and forth from short-stacked status to the top of the counts. Josh Arieh finished Day 3 on the biggest upswing, ending atop the counts with more than 1.8 million.

Meanwhile Brian Rast -- all in and needing to hit early in the day in a 2-7 triple draw hand -- rebounded all of the way back to end the day in second place with a little over 1.63 million. George Lind III, Vladimir Shchemelev, Phil Hellmuth, and Scott Seiver will all be returning to million-plus chip stacks as well today.

The plan today is to continue the eight-game mix format all of the way down to a final table, at which point the game will switch to no-limit hold'em only for tomorrow's Day 5. Cards go in the air at 3 p.m. Vegas time. See you back here then for start-to-finish coverage of Day 4!
