Day 3 Completed
Phil Ivey, Roland de Wolfe, and Kirill Gerasimov were all among the 20 who returned today, but all fell early in the afternoon, and within three hours we had rapidly arrived at our ten-handed final table.
At that point, Bahador Ahmadi had the chip lead, with Angel Guillen and Stammen close behind. Players continued to be eliminated at a fast clip until play reached five-handed, at which point Torrey Reily -- having nursed his short stack all of the way to a six-figure score -- was finally ousted in fifth place.
Within minutes Stammen had knocked out both Ahmadi in fourth and Glines in third, and after just 70 hands at the ten-handed final table, we were down to two.
When heads up began, Stammen enjoyed a better than 2-to-1 chip advantage over Guillen. He increased his lead, but Guillen fought back, and it was starting to look as though we may be in for a lengthy heads-up battle. But on the 20th hand, Guillen flopped top pair of nines and a flush draw and got it all in versus Stammen's pocket jacks, and Stammen's hand held up, giving him the bracelet.
