Steve Rosen is here today, having battled up from a short stack to more than average chips as we begin the last level of Day 3. Rosen is hoping to position himself a little better than was the case last year when the money bubble came around in the WSOP Main Event. Rosen was one of the super short stacks once hand-for-hand play commenced, but luckily managed to squeak into the money and earn his second WSOP Main Event cash.
Just now Rosen was opening with a raise to 8,500 from middle position, then 2011 November Niner Phil Collins reraised to 22,000 from the cutoff. It folded back to Rosen who thought for about a minute before calling.
The flop came , and Rosen didn't wait too long before betting 20,000. Collins considered Rosen's bet for a half-minute, then let his hand go.
