Lane leads WSOP after fourth day

A battle of attrition on the fourth day of the World Series of Poker Main Event ended with Jon Lane ascending into the lead with more than 2.8 million in chips.

Sami Rustom (2,485,000) was in second, with Grayson Ramage (2,438,000) in third.

Play was stopped at the Rio Convention Center after 1 a.m. with 239 players remaining. Action resumes at noon today.

A pair of women, Annette Obrestad of Norway and Jackie Glazier of Australia, are serious contenders. Glazier won several big hands to reach 1,595,000, and Obrestad was at 1,186,000.

Sarah Herzali, a 25-year-old from Marseille, France, was knocked out and finished 254th.

Defending champion Greg Merson, who lost a significant hand against Glazier, still is in the hunt with 635,000.
