Welcome to PokerNews' Day 3 coverage of Event #50: $1,500 Eight-Game Mix. The starting field of 485 entrants is down to just 14 players, each with hopes of capturing a coveted World Series of Poker bracelet. First place is set at $167,332 and leading the way into Day 3 is Dan Heimiller with 227,000. Only 13 players stand between Heimiller and a second gold bracelet of the summer, but these arent just any 13 players.
Daniel Negreanu and Phil Ivey both remain, sitting ninth and third in chips, respectively. For Negreanu, it's his eighth cash of the 2014 WSOP and another chance to capture his seventh bracelet. Ivey, meanwhile, has struggled this summer. It's only his third cash, but having just two days ago cashed in Event #48, things might be turning about for the nine-time bracelet winner. A 10th bracelet is within his sights. Among the others still in the field include bracelet winner Aaron Steury and perennial WSOP casher Stephen Chidwick.
Here is the Day 3 seating chart:
