After another six levels of play, Event #73: $10,000 Stud Hi-Lo Championship has been suspended with four players remaining. The final four will return tomorrow to play down to a champion. Best positioned to take down the event is Yuval Bronshtein, who managed to bag 3.32 million in chips.
Bronshtein will be seeking his second WSOP gold bracelet of the 2021 series and third overall after taking down Event #12: $1,500 Limit Hold'em back in October. The Israeli native has already amassed nearly $1.8 million in live-tournament earnings according to The Hendon Mob and will enjoy a more-than one million chip advantage over his nearest competitor in Ian O'Hara, who managed to bag 2.12 million in chips into Day 4.

Action of The Day
Day 3 began with 11 hopefuls but quickly reached the final table as Brett Richey and Ahmed Mohamed, who entered the day as the shortest stacks, were quickly eliminated within the first level.
Josh Arieh became the first victim of the final table, due largely to a pot against Brian Hastings that left him with crumbs. Despite the disappointing finish, Arieh's ninth-place finish has further increased his lead in the WSOP Player-of-the-Year standings and now looks to be a solid favorite to take the honor and $15,000 prize home.
Gary Benson and nine-time WSOP poker legend Erik Seidel both fell shortly thereafter after committing their short-stacks and getting all-in on early streets in multi-way pots without improving.
The final five players battled back and forth for a long time, with Brian Hastings getting short but then managing to double up after spiking seventh street against Marco Johnson.
After more than two levels of five-handed play, Johnson would be eliminated in fifth place after finding himself short and getting all-in against Bronshtein by third street and ending up second best.
