After ten long levels of No-Limit Hold'em action, Day 3 of Event: 41: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em has come to an end with just two players remaining - Greg Ostrander and Jackie Glazier. Both players had the option to play an additional level to try and finish, however, both agreed to bag and tag and come back tomorrow. Glazier will come in as chip leader with 9,480,000, while Ostrander will come in with 3,070,000.
Day 3 began with 30 hopefuls, including several well-known pros and our Day 2 chip leader Joseph Chaplin. However, half of field was sent to the rail within three levels, including Shannon Shorr (30th), Dan Shak (28th), Scott Montgomery (17th), and Jason Koon (14th).
When it eventually got down to a single table, the remaining ten players re-located to the main stage. Here is how the table draw looked:
