The defending World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event champion Koray Aldemir is among the top stacks at the end of Day 4 of $10,000 buy-in WSOP 2022 Main Event. The WSOP 2021 ME winner had earlier concluded Day 3 with 537,000 chips. Once Day 4 kicked-off, Aldemir bumped up his chip count to 1,870,000 when the last break of the day was announced, before ending the day with a stack of 1,285,000. The German player will return for Day 5 of the ME to battle it out with the remaining survivors (380 total survivors).
Interestingly, Aldemir is not the only ME winner who is still in contention. WSOP 2020 champion Damian Salas will resume play on Day 5 with 2,355,000 chips at his disposal. Apart from these two, other former WSOP ME winners like Chris Moneymaker, Greg Merson, John Cynn, and Ryan Riess also played Day 4 but exited the tournament during the course of the many levels played on the day.
Talking about Day 4, there were 1,299 players fighting to survive and progress ahead. These players were guaranteed a sum of at least $15,000. Taylor von Kriegenbergh finished Day 4 as the highest chip stack (5,305,000 chips); Dan Colpoys with 4,835,000 is in the second position. Aaron Mermelstein who was the Day 3 chip leader will return with 4,285,000 chips in his kitty. The WSOP 2022 ME registered a player count of 8,663 which fell short of breaking the WSOP 2006 record of 8,773 entries. The WSOP 2022 ME prize pool stands at $80,782,475.
