Day 3 of Event # 17, the $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. tournament, will begin with 17 players looking to finish things off and claim the coveted gold bracelet that defines poker greatness. After a grueling two days of competition, each player can taste potential glory and will be leaving everything on the felt, as they try to prove that they have mastered five of poker's more complex disciplines.
Among the notable professionals still remaining in the field are PokerStars Team Pro Victor Ramdin and David Bach. Ramdin will be looking to capture his first World Series of Poker bracelet and cement his reputation as one of the most dangerous tournament players in the world. Bach has already etched his name in the poker history books with his victory in the $50,000 H.O.R.S.E World Championship held at the 2009 WSOP. Winning another H.O.R.S.E. bracelet here today will confirm that Bach deserves to be mentioned along with the game’s greatest mixed game players.
Our Day 3 field also has a decidedly international flair, with Paolo Compagno of Italy and Tristan Clemencon of France looking to continue the dominance shown by foreign players here at the 2011 WSOP. Check in with PokerNews.com for regular updates throughout the day as we play down to our table and crown a new H.O.R.S.E champion.
