The Mike Sexton Cup sat in the corner, featured prominently within view of the final sixteen as they bagged up for the night. Only two tables remain in the WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Main Event.

Six of them will be heading to Vegas for the final table, the other ten will only be able to watch it on stream in envy. Today’s Day 4 will determine the fate of both groups.

Sitting on top of the leaderboard is Sridhar Sangannagari with 121 big blinds. He’s in a great spot to continue accumulating with two short stacks on his left.

Andrew Moreno sits with 48 big blinds, third in chips at his table. He did draw the unfortunate position of sitting to the right of the chip leader, so he’ll need to navigate cautiously to find a way through the ICM waters. He did come from behind in a massive spot against Frank Lagodich to build his stack late in Day 3. Both players acted with class in the important moment. Moreno will look to capitalize on the opportunity in front of him.
