Fang Leads, Stammen Goes for Two, Negreanu Goes for History

Level 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Yi Fang

He may not be the biggest name in the game, but he certainly could be a star in the making given the outgoing personality of Yi Fang, who finished Day 4 of the Five Diamond World Poker Classic at Bellagio leading the final 33 players remaining in the event.
 
Fang steadily chipped up throughout the latter half of the day, taking a large pot of Joshua Ladines to move into seven-figure territory and take the chip lead. He didn't relinquish it from that point forward, ending the day with 1,311,000. The only other player to end the day over a million is Isaac Baron, who finished the day with 1,012,000.
 
The day began with 78 hopefuls and the money bubble looming with 54 players earning a payday. David Sands was the unfortunate bubble boy, exiting in 55th place, ensuring the rest of the field a payday.
 
Some of the notables who cashed include Dan O'Brien (53rd), Ben Tollerene (50th), Cornel Cimpan (48th), Darren Elias (47th), Jeremy Ausmus (44th), and Kathy Liebert (36th).
 
While it sounds like many big names headed for the door or hopped into Day 1 of the $100,000 Alpha8 event, there are stil plenty of notable names and big stories beyond just Yi Fang. 
 
For example, Season III Five Diamond Champ Daniel Negreanu is still in the hunt for his third WPT title and the chance to become the first player to ever win the same WPT event twice. He finished the day with 378,000, which is below average, but still plenty of chips for the Hall of Famer to work with.
 
Other Champions Club members in the field include Jared Jaffee (967,000), Keven Stammen (932,000), Will Failla (496,000), Mohsin Charania (230,000), and Anthony Zinno (227,000). Several other notables are in the field too, including Celine Dion's husband Rene Angelil, Dan Bilzerian's brother Adam Bilzerian, and two German high rollers, Fabian Quoss and Tobias Reinkemeier.
 
There are several young players in the hunt too, including former WPT One to Watch Aaron Massey (606,000) and current BLUFF.com Ones to Watch Garrett Greer (979,000).
 
The Skrill last-longer contest seems as though it will come down to the wire, with six players still in contention. Isaac Baron and Dan Heimiller have the best shot of the group, as Baron bagged over a million and Heimiller ended the day with 816,000 after spending a chunk of the afternoon as chip leader, but Brandon Adams (who won his way into this event via a DraftKings satellite), Shaun Suller, Joshua Ladines, Chane Kampanatsanyakron, and Millard Hale, but Hale will be climbing an uphill battle after losing a huge pot to Ryan Fee on one of the last pots of the night to end with 51,000 chips.

Here are the chip couts and seat assignments for the 33 Day 5 players who will be back in action at 12pm PT on Friday:

Millard Hale Triples Up

Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

The very next hand after doubling up Ryan Fee, Millard Hale moves all-in for his last 13,000. Chane Kampanatsanyakron raises, making it 30,000 to play. Jared Jaffee elects to call out of the big blind.

The flop comes AspadeKspade5club. Jaffee bets 85,000, Kampanatsanyakron folds, and Jaffee wins the small side pot.

Jaffee shows Jheart10spade for a gutshot straight draw. Hale holds 6spade7spade for a flush draw.

Hale hits his flush with the 8spade on the turn and stays out front after the river comes Kheart, giving him the pot and the more than triple up.

Millard Hale - 55,000 (6 bb)

Ralph Thomas is all in for about 200,000 with Kdiamond4diamond, and he needs to improve to stay alive against the AclubAspade of Ryan Julius.

The board comes AdiamondQdiamond10heartQclub4heart -- Thomas flops a flush draw and a gutshot straight draw, but improves no further. Julius wins the pot with a full house, aces full of queens, to eliminate Thomas from the tournament.

Bonyadi shows 3heart3spade, and he needs his hand to hold to stay alive against Angelil's AspadeQdiamond.

The board comes KclubQspade2heartAdiamond8spade, and Angelil wins the pot with two pair, aces and queens, to eliminate Bonyadi from the tournament.

Ryan Fee Doubles Thru Millard Hale

Level 20: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Jared Jaffee raises to 22,000 from under the gun, Millard Hale calls from middle position, and Ryan Fee reraises to 90,000 out of the small blind. Jaffee folds.

Hale asks Fee how much he started the hand with and Fee informs him he started with around 450,000. Hale thinks for a couple of minutes, then moves all-in for right around that amount.

Fee practically beats him in the pot, flipping over his KheartKspade. Hale trails with AheartQheart.

Hale gets no help fromthe 7diamond4heart3club flop, and his chances look even slimmer when the turn bring the Kdiamond, giving Fee a set of kings.

The river is the Kclub, unnecessarily giving Fee quad kings and, after a countdown of both stacks, Hale is left with just 14,000 chips.

Ryan Fee - 910,000 (91 bb)
Millard Hale - 13,000 (1 bb)
