Day 4 of the 2022 Wynn Millions Main Event wrapped up on Wednesday evening after nearly eight hours of play with Isaac Kempton in front of the 16 remaining players with a stack of 5,615,000.

The day began with 54 players in a tournament that attracted a total of 1,075 runners to generate $10,105,000 in prize money. Kempton will return on Thursday, March 10 at noon local time to compete against fellow big stacks Ian Matakis (5,030,000), Michael Stembera (4,225,000), Tony Sinishtaj (4,065,000) and Vanessa Kade (3,575,000).

Other players who found bags on Day 4 of the Wynn Millions Main Event include Daniel Moran (2,620,000), Shaun Deeb (2,495,000), Alex Livingston (2,270,000), Sean Perry (2,090,000), Sylvain Loosli (1,605,000) and Thomas Boivin (1,250,000).

Defending champion Andrew Moreno, who took down the inaugural 2021 Wynn Millions Main Event for $1,460,106 after a three-way deal, made a deep run that extended late into the fourth day of play. Unfortunately for Moreno, his title-defending run was cut short when his pocket kings were cracked by the ace-queen of Kempton.

While Moreno was unable to earn his second career seven-figure score, his 23rd-place finish earned him a payday of $71,657.

Sofia Lovgren was the final player eliminated on Day 4 when she got it in with king-three against the jack-nine of Perry. A king on the turn gave Lovgren the best hand, but the river improved Perry to trips to win the pot.

It was a common storyline for Perry, who spiked a handful of fortunate turns and rivers throughout the day to stay alive and eliminate opponents.

Other players who didn't survive the day include Sam Soverel, Brock Wilson, Chad Eveslage, Chino Rheem and Jesse Sylvia.

Stay tuned as the PokerNews live reporting team will be back tomorrow to bring you updates of the Day 5 action.

Day 4 Has Ended

connorrichards • Level 23: 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante

Day 4 has ended now that only 16 players remain. Stay tuned for a full recap of the day's action.

Sofia Lovgren Eliminated in 17th Place ($94,272)

Sofia Lovgren
Sofia Lovgren

Sean Perry open-jammed from the small blind and Sofia Lovgren called out of the big blind with the smaller stack of about 300,000.

Sofia Lovgren: {k-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}
Sean Perry: {j-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}

The flop came {2-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{4-Spades} to give Perry the lead with a pair of jacks, though Lovgren took the lead on the turn as it came the {k-Hearts}. But just as quickly as Lovgren gained the lead she lost it as the river brought the {j-Hearts} to give Perry trips and send Lovgren out as the final elimination of the day.

Sylvain Loosli opened to 80,000 from early position and David Dowdy jammed for 455,000 in middle position. Action folded back to Loosli who snap-called.

David Dowdy: {9-Spades}{8-Spades}
Sylvain Loosli: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}

The board ran out {10-Spades}{4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and Loosli's bullets held to eliminate Dowdy in 18th place, good for $82,047.

Dennis Martin Eliminated in 20th Place ($82,047); Joao Simao Eliminated in 19th Place ($82,047)

Dennis Martin
Dennis Martin

Isaac Kempton opened to 80,000 in late position and Daniel Moran flat-called from the cutoff. Joao Simao three-bet jammed a stack of around 800,000 from the button and Dennis Martin moved all-in from the small blind with slightly less. Kempton called and Moran folded.

Dennis Martin: {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Joao Simao: {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}
Isaac Kempton: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

The flop came {2-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} to keep Kempton in the lead with queens, and the {5-Hearts}{2-Clubs} runout didn't change things for the tournament chip leader to score a double-knockout.

Simao had the larger stack and therefore earned the 19th place finish, while both players earned the same $82,047 for their efforts.

Shankar Pillai opened to 80,000 in middle position, Michael Stembera called the cutoff, and Hyo Joo shoved for approximately 1,450,000 in the big blind. Pillai folded and Stembera called.

Hyo Joo: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}
Michael Stembera: {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Joo ran his big slick into cowboys, and the {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{5-Spades}{7-Hearts} runout changed nothing, eliminating Joo in 21st place for $71,657.
