WSOPE 2010 Main Event: Day 3 Winners And LosersSeptember 27, 2010 7:40 am
At the start of Day 3 of the 2010 WSOPE Main Event 66 players returned intent on advancing their WSOP aspirations but by the end of play just 22 hopefuls remained.
Among those players not even making the £21,206 minimum cash bubble reserved for the top 36 places were Daniel Negreanu, JP Kelly, Huck Seed, Eli Elezra, Nam Le, Dan Shak, and Nick Schulman.
Day 3 also saw the last two female players in the guise of Barbara Martinez and Almira Scripchenko leave the competition empty handed. Meanwhile, the remaining November Nine players John Dolan, Filippo Candio and John Racener also fell by the wayside shy of the bubble.
Those players cashing in before being sent to the rail included Freddy Deeb (30th), Bryn Kenney (29th), Yevgeniy Timoshenko (24th) and Barry Greenstein (23rd).
On the other side of the coin, dark horse Robert Lee leads the winners pack with 947,000 in chips, while internet tournament pro David Peters (829k) with more than $2.5 million in online winnings currently lies in 2nd spot of overnight leaders.
However, all eyes are squarely turned instead towards 5th place Viktor Blom (705k) and 6th place Phil Ivey (657k), both of whom have healthy stacks are in great positions to attack the tournament.
Other notable players remaining in the competition include Hoyt Corkins (7th), Arnaud Mattern (10th), and Barny Boatman (14th),
Both Greg Mueller and Roland de Wolfe also remain in contention but have a lot of work to do if they are to overcome their short stacks.
The tournament will resume today at 12 noon at London’s Empire Casino, when the action will see the field further reduced to the final table of nine.
