Day 4 of the Pinty’s Grand Slam of Curling: Meridian Canadian Open will see the field pared down extensively, as a number of rinks have their backs against the wall in the triple knockout tournament.

The day will also hint at what's in store for playoffs and quarterfinal matches this weekend.

The early draw at 8 a.m. will end the week for three of the six teams in action, with none having found the winners circle this week.

Rylan Kleiter’s Saskatoon rink and Winnipeg’s Reid Carruthers will face off. Kleiter fell in opening night play against Kevin Koe 10-1, and again the following night, dropping a 7-3 decision to Brad Jacobs.

Looking to stick around for the weekend on the women’s side will be Chelsea Carey and Isabella Wrana and Kerri Einarson and Elena Stern.

The 11:30 draw will nix action for either Regina’s Matt Dunstone or Jason Gunnlaugson or Braden Calvert and Scott McDonald.

On the women's side, three of the six rinks will earn a spot in weekend playoffs with a win.

North Battleford’s Robyn Silvernagle will meat Silvana Tirinzoni, Laura Walker’s rink is up against Satsuki Fujisawa and Nina Roth faces Casey Scheidegger.

Scheduled for the 3 p.m. draw is Anna Hasselborg and Tracey Fleury as well as Kevin Koe and Niklas Edin.
