WSOP 2011 Day 3: Main Event Winners And LosersJuly 15, 2011 7:11 am
Day 3 of the 2011 WSOP Main Event saw the returning field of 1,866 players reduced further to just 853 hopefuls. Those players remaining will now recommence battle on Day 4 hoping to at least finish in the top 693 and collect a guaranteed $19,359.
However, the payouts only reach six-figures for 64th to 72nd place finishers ($108,412), although all the remaining competitors will instead be more focused on winning tournament poker’s most coveted title, plus the $8,711,956 first place prize.
Amongst the notable players unable to survive the rocky road of Day 3 was Shaun Deeb who caught Heinzelmann six-betting light with the duo then all-in pre-flop with Deeb’s A-A way ahead of his opponent’s A-6o. Unfortunately for Deeb, the board then ran out K-10-6-Q-6 and he was out soon after.
Other notable names joining him on the rail included Jason Mercier, Huck Seed, Joe Cada, Annette Obrestad, John Racener, Patrik Antonius, Galen Hall, Justin Bonomo, Greg Mueller, Scott Clements, Mike Caro, Matt Matros, Victor Ramdin, Matt Savage, Billy Kopp, Tom McEvoy, Dan Fleyshman, Jen Harman, Christina Lindley, Neil Channing, Dan Shak, Olivier Busquet, Ryan D’Angelo, Steve Dannenmann and Carlos Mortensen.
On the other side of the coin, with the blinds now on 1500/3000 and a 400 ante, those players finishing atop Day 3 included chip leader Patrick Poirier (1.328m), followed by Daryl Jace (1.282m), and Chris Kwon (944,500).
Remaining large/middle stacks include Peter Jetten (657k), Bryan Devonshire (596k), Amanda Muscemi (528k), JP Kelly (492k), Ben Lamb (450k), Blair Hinkle (323k), Shannon Shorr (356k), Erick Lindgren (356k), Tony Hachem (355k), David Chiu (300k), Allen Cunningham (274k), Freddy Deeb (282k), Adam Junglen (248k), Vanessa Rousso (298k), John Cernuto (211k) and Daniel Negreanu (207k).
More diminished stacks include Bryan Micon (132k), Dennis Phillips (144k), Eli Elezra (111k), Jean-Robert Bellande (104k), Christian Harder (191k), Isabelle Mercier (79k), Phil Hellmuth (77k) and Ted Forrest (73k).
The remaining 853 players will now return to the Rio on Friday for Day 4, with play starting at 1200 Las Vegas time.
