Usual suspects line-up at Wynn Classic

Johnny Chan

With almost 200 players in the field, and a packed schedule of high-stakes events lately maybe wearing on the sharpness of poker's finest, you'd think the climate would be ripe for an upset. The opposite has held true: It's a shooting gallery for the aces, with five of nine spots at the Wynn Classic final table held by A-listers.

The Mikes are there: Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi and Mike Matusow.

Cash game legend Chau Giang is there.

So is two-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Scott Fischman.

Oh. And Johnny Chan, who you might remember from his 10 WSOP bracelets, a little spot in the movie Rounders and his status as a living poker legend.

It's a bit of a tough table.

Rounding out the field heading into the Day 4 final table are the bumptious Chris Roos, the steady Ted Lawson, and the likely overwhelmed Zachary Hyman and Chris Moore, with play set to whittle down to one $749,033 winner by the end of the day.

It's been a veritable murderer's row of heavyweights battling tooth-and-nail for the duration of the tournament, and today is expected to be more of the same., of course, will be at the Wynn Las Vegas to bring you live updates, reports and interviews all the way to the final bloody haymaker (metaphorically speaking, of course).

Check it all out in the Live Tournament Section.
