In Event #9: $3,000 No Limit Hold’em Shootout, 60 players returned to action today from yesterday’s starting field of 477. By the time play finished for the night, only 10 players remained. They’ll return tomorrow to play the final table and battle it out for the first prize of $299,486 and the coveted WSOP gold bracelet.
There are several notable players who have advanced to tomorrow’s final table. Four of the remaining ten have already won World Series events: Cliff Josephy, David “Bakes” Baker, Ryan Hughes, and Max Steinberg. They are joined by Chris Klodnicki, who has won a World Series Circuit ring but is still looking for his first bracelet. Klodnicki twice finished in second place in World Series events, including last year’s $50,000 Poker Players Championship.
The action continues tomorrow at 1 p.m. local time, when the final table is scheduled to be contested on the ESPN main stage. Pokernews.com will be here to bring you all the action as it occurs, so stay tuned for updates as the players determine the next World Series of Poker bracelet winner.
