Willerson and Mefodichev Return to Battle Heads Up

Vladimir Mefodichev and Neil Willerson Heads Up on Day 3

After a full ten levels of play during Day 3, the event reached its climactic heads up battle. Neil Willerson and Vladimir Mefodichev were able to rise above the competition in the largest open field so far at the 2012 World Series of Poker. Twenty-eight players returned for Day 3 of play and a final table was quickly reached. That grueling final table, however, had much room for play with over 14,000,000 chips in play.

After seven eliminations at the final table we have come down to the final two. Willerson and Mefodichev played heads up for about an hour last night and although we came close to crowning a victor twice, neither player was able to seal the deal. Today the two will play until the next WSOP champion is crowned.

Willerson has a slight chip lead with 8,920,000 to Mefodichev's 5,335,000 but these players have traded spots several times and anything can happen in this heads up battle. Cards are about to hit the air in the Amazon room. Stay tuned to PokerNews for the results of the exciting conclusion to this bracelet event.
