The action in the World Series of Poker main event tends to get a little crazy after the money bubble bursts, but that feels like a bit of an understatement when applied to how Sunday's action played out.

After Day 4 of the 2018 WSOP main event began with all 1,182 remaining players in the money, there were sure to be some big waves of players sent to the payout line, but by the time all was said and done just 310 people still have their dreams of becoming a main event champion intact.

Barry Hutter had the best day of all, bagging up 5.5 million in chips to earn the chip lead. Hutter, who won a WSOP gold bracelet in the $1,500 no-limit hold 'em shootout in 2015, is also just a few weeks removed from a runner-up finish in a $3,000 no-limit hold 'em bracelet event. His lifetime earnings sit at over $4.3 million.
