Congrats to MainEventTravel CEO Fraser MacIntyre who is in the money and through to Day 4 of the $10,000 2018 WSOP Main Event. There are 1,182 players left and Fraser will be back today with a stack of 268,000. He’s already guaranteed $15,00 for his efforts so far.

Fraser, who has already cashed in three WSOP tournaments this summer, noted: “Made it to day 4 of the WSOP Main Event. 1182 players left, and we’re in the money. Back tomorrow with 268k chips to try and multiply.” This is Fraser’s third cash in the WSOP Main Event; two years ago he finished 301st for $32,130. He also cashed in 2015.
