2016 WSOP Main Event Down to Final 250 Players

The 2016 World Series of Poker $10,000 buy-in Main Event Championship continued on Friday at the Rio in Las Vegas with the start and completion of Day 4.

American pro Bryan Piccioli finished day 4 with 4,026,000 and has the overall chip lead heading into day 5. Others who bagged big stacks included Daniel Colman (3,711,000), James "Andy McLEOD" Obst (3,003,000), Jared Bleznick (2,568,000) and Tom Marchese (2,108,000).

At least four well-known female pros will also be coming back for day 5 action. Melanie Weisner (pictured) has a top-ten stack of 3,078,000, while Gaelle Baumann (1,724,000), Jennifer Shahade (976,000) and Maria Ho (671,000) are all still in contention as well.
