Day 3 In The Books

[user77326]
Bossman ElkY
Bossman ElkY
After five long levels of play, we have finally reached the end of the night.

We kicked off today with a total of 2,044 players and by the end of the day we ended with approximately 800 players. We're creeping ever so close to the money which is hit when we reach 648 players.

Our rising star and overnight chipleader is Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier. His big boost came from Jerry Wong who moved all in on the river after ElkY had raised. Grospellier made the call with middle set and with that pot, broke the one million chip mark. Since then he's been raking in pot after pot and controlling his table. He ends the day with a whopping 1,380,500.

Some other notables ending the day with a healthy plot in front of them include Ludovic Lacay, Jordan Morgan, Alex Kostritsyn, Phil Hellmuth and Kenny Tran.

While some were shining bright, others wouldn't share the same gleam. Not making it through the day are such names as Jason Alexander, Josh Arieh, Bryan Micon, Dutch Boyd, Greg Raymer and Aussie superstar Shane Warne.

We will return tomorrow at 12:00 PM PDT and play another scheduled five levels. With plenty of big names still in good shape, this looks to be an exciting journey. Join us tomorrow for more bad beats, sick coolers and unbelievable rivers. Thank you for following the action with us!

...And That's You Lot. Sort Of

[user46392]
Play has officially ended for the day and everyone still in now has made Day 4. Hurrah!

Nevertheless, players have been sent on a 20 minute break to enable the floor folks to color up the black 100 chips before the bagging process begins. Most curious.

Phil Hellmuth: Tournament Director

EricRamsey
The tournament is running just a bit differently tonight than in previous nights. Where we would normally stop at the ten-minute mark and draw a card so that all tables played the same number of hands, tonight the last level is being played all the way down to zero. That's causing some ripples of confusion and disdain around the room, with Ground Zero being located right smack in the middle of Table Hellmuth.

When he realized what was going on, Hellmuth shot out of his chair and scoured the room for a listening ear. Unfortunately for Media Director Nolan Dalla, Hellmuth's gaze landed on him.

"Nolan... Nolan... Nolan..." he repeated as he walked across the floor to interrupt a conversation. "This is terrible, Nolan. Everyone's going to stall. They don't want to take the big blind, so they stall." Dalla was nodding and clearly looking for a good spot to stick in a reply. "I don't wanna play that stall game," finished Hellmuth. Dalla politely told Phil that it was not his decision to make, sending him storming back to his table.

Just a few seconds later, we overheard the table talk between Phil and his neighbor Chris Bjorin. Hellmuth was still going on about the schedule. "I don't know what to do. They're just going to stall. I think I'm supposed to stall. I think we have to stall. We may not play another hand here."

To everyone's content, the last few hands were finished up without incident over there.

Alvarado Not Made of Gold

[user46392]
J.C. Alvarado has suffered a last-minute setback, calling a gentleman's push on an {8-Diamonds} {3-Hearts} {3-Spades} flop.

Alvarado: {J-Spades} {8-Spades}
All In Gentleman: {Q-Clubs} {Q-Hearts}

Turn: {J-Clubs}
River: {4-Hearts}

Mr. All In thought he'd lost when the jack came on the turn, but it was pointed out to him that his two pair queens and threes beat Alvarado's two pair jacks and eights, and he doubled up. Alvarado meanwhile sinks to just 70,000.
