Welcome back to our coverage of the 2013 World Series of Poker! Excitement in the Amazon Room is growing as final preparations are being made for the final table of Event #4: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em (Six Handed). Yesterday's play saw 117 players return of the 1,069 total entrants. By the end of the day, the field was whittled down to the final seven with Mike Mustafa leading the pack.
While Mustafa is the biggest stack in the room, all eyes are on 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Joe Cada. Cada has sported one of the biggest stacks in the room for a majority of this event and will be sitting down in the ESPN Mothership in fifth chip position.
Keven Stammen has also managed to rise above the field and will be appearing at today's final table. Stammen is a WSOP bracelet holder who won his title back in 2009 during a $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em event.
The money bubble burst quickly yesterday as play began just nine eliminations away from the money. After the bubble hit, a breadth of notable players soon hit the rail. The likes of Russell Thomas, Steve Zolotow, Humberto Brenes, Todd Terry, Bryan Piccioli, Craig McCorkell, Jonathan Duhamel, Calvin Anderson, and Matt Salsberg all saw the rail before the final table was reached.
Play will commence soon here in the Amazon Room. Be sure to stay tuned to PokerNews for all of the latest updates as we conclude the quest to crown the fourth bracelet winner of the summer.
