WSOP Chip Counts – We're In The Money, But Still a Long Way to go

WSOP Chip Counts – We're In The Money, But Still a Long Way to go 0001

At the beginning of day three, we had 1,159 players, most of which were just thinking about cashing, and a good number that were also thinking about winning this thing.

A grueling day three saw 481 players still standing at its end, and a whopping 400 players eliminated after we got into the money at about 5:30pm. The average chip stack is about 183,000, and names such as Allen Cunningham, Daniel Negreanu, and defending champ Joe Hachem are still alive.

With the notable exception of David Chiu, the top of the leaderboard is pretty bare when it comes to name players. Below we present the top 50 chip counts, with some notable names added in at the bottom. Also, below that you will find some of the more known names that met their fate on Friday, but did get into the money.
