With the field in the PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship (PSPC) shrinking towards its final table, every pot becomes hugely significant. Players are feeling the pressure, and never more so than when they are all-in.
The PokerStars photography team, led by Joe Giron and Danny Maxwell, are watching closely. They’re grabbing some sensational photos as players’ tournament lives go on the line.
Here are a few select images from the past few hours. Sometimes these guys doubled up. Sometimes they were knocked out. All they had in common was that at the point most of these photos were taken, their PSPC hopes were either under threat, or it was already too late.
Enjoy our Day 4 PSPC photo gallery:
