After three moderate field sizes for the flagship tournament of the 2021 World Series of Poker, the fourth flight of the $10,000 Main Event provided a significant boost to the overall field size. An unofficial 2,550 entries emerged as three different rooms were used to host poker players from all over the world at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Once five levels of two hours each were completed, some 1,939 players bagged and tagged for the night. Among the notables to run up a solid stack were Adedapo Ajayi (340,900), Zachary Grech (318,400), David "Bakes" Baker (247,300), Dan Shak (229,200), and David Stefanski (213,900).

When the cards went in the air, the Day 1a field had already surpassed the number of combined entries across all three previous flights. This hasn't been unheard of in previous years either, as the final starting day typically attracts the far biggest fields. However, in 2021, there are another two starting days to come. Players also can enter the competition during the first two levels on the respective Day 2s on Tuesday, November 9, and Wednesday, November 10, respectively.

Further notables who will return with a big stack then are James Chen (209,400), Shyam Srinivasan (206,000), Cliff Josephy (198,600), Yevgeniy Timoshenko (194,800), Nick Petrangelo (180,000), Matt Berkey (179,800), Greg Mueller (176,700), Ben Heath (176,000), Roland Israelashvili (173,700), and Jun Obara (169,400).

Maria Ho delivered the shuffle up and deal for Day 1d and spent three of the five levels on the main feature table, also commonly known as the Thunderdome. Ho was among many female players to enter the pinnacle poker live event of the year and advanced with 85,700. Melanie Weisner (125,200), Kathy Liebert (97,300), Danielle Andersen (64,800), Kitty Kuo (57,600), Ashley Sleeth (19,700), and Jamie Kerstetter (14,300) also all made it through.

More than 600 hopes of becoming the next World Champion were crushed, however, as many notables were sent to the rail without anything to show for their efforts. Adam Levy, Michael Ruane, Jason Somerville, Eric "BarstoolNate" Nathan, Joseph Cheong, Esther Taylor, Brandon Shack-Harris, Ryan Laplante, Julien Martini, Phil Laak, and David Williams all departed.

Two former WSOP Main Event champions were also among the notable casualties on the fourth starting day. Joe McKeehen and Greg Raymer failed to make it through to Day 2 in pursuit of earning a repeat victory. Raymer's run ended in level three when his dominated ace failed to get there against Victor Peppe.

Whether or not a new record attendance will be set in the days to come remains to be seen. For the first time in history, the richest poker tournament of the year features six starting flights. Two starting days remain when international poker players are expected to appear after the ease of travel restrictions to the United States. The 2021 WSOP Main Event registration will conclude at approximately 3.40 pm local time on November 10 during Day 2CEF.

Monsters for Biles and Nakamura, Neither Commits Much to Pot

Niveau 5 : 300/600, 600 ante

In one of the final hands of the evening, Tamon Nakamura opened to 1,500 in middle position and Oliver Biles called in late position.

Nakamura checked on the flop of {8-}{7-}{6-} and Biles checked back. Nakamura checked again on the {2-} turn and Biles again checked back.

Both players checked again on the {6-} river and the table was shocked when they saw the hands the players flipped over. Biles has {a-}{k-} but never took a stab and his opponent won the pot with {a-}{a-}.

Jeschka Cracks Aces and Doubles Up

Niveau 5 : 300/600, 600 ante

Hannes Jeschka raised to 1,300 in early position and was called by the button, before the big blind three-bet to 4,500. Only Jeschka called.

The flop brought {q-Hearts}{10-Spades}{9-Clubs}, and the big blind bet 6,500. Jeschka thought about his move for a minute and announced all in for 22,800. The big blind called after some thinking, revealing {a-Spades}{a-Clubs} while Jeschka tabled {9-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}.

The {2-Hearts} turn and {2-Clubs} river didn't change anything and Jeschka took down the pot doubled up.

Campbell Jams River

Niveau 5 : 300/600, 600 ante
Rob Campbell
Rob Campbell

The middle position player opened to 1,500 and called when Robert Campbell three-bet to 4,900 from the hijack.

The {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} flop saw both players check. The {5-Spades} turn brought a lead for 6,000 and a call by Campbell.

The {k-Diamonds} completed the board and the middle position player bet 17,500. Campbell then jammed in his stack of about 69,000. His opponent thought about it for several minutes while Campbell had his eyes closed, his head down, and appeared to be meditating.

Ultimately, the middle position player let go of his hand and Campbell broke his stillness to scoop the pot and add to his stack.
