Welcome back to Event #53: $1,000 Ladies No-Limit Hold’em of what should be the third and final day. Fourteen players, and we say players instead of ladies since one man is still among them, return to hopefully play down to a champion today. If that isn’t achieved within ten levels of play however, like many events this summer, play will be extended to a fourth day tomorrow.

The chip leader going into the day is Valerie McColligan with 482,000 in chips who is the only player currently above the 400,000 chip mark. Still in contention are big names Amanda Baker (326,000) and Karine Jett (140,000). As mentioned though, Jonathan Epstein, the last of the men who originally entered the field, is still left as well with 216,000 in chips and all eyes will certainly be on him.

Play is set to resume in around 20 minutes at 2:30 p.m. PDT in the Amazon Room on each of the secondary ESPN feature tables. Be sure to follow of the action with us here at PokerNews as the field is whittled down and a winner is hopefully determined who will take home the $192,344 first place prize and a fine new piece of jewellery.
