It is Day 3 of Event #55: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em and 17 players are coming back to battle for a bracelet and a top prize of $582,321.
On Day 2 we saw the money bubble burst early in the day's first level and the pace of eliminations continued at a feverish clip until the event was left with just 17 participants. The overnight chip leader was David Jackson who bagged 1,487,000.
Michael Ferrer is right on Jackson's heels with 1,146,000. Aaron Massey, chip leader for most of Day 2, will come in to Day 3 stacked third at 949,000. Also coming back for Day 3 is last year's Main Event sixth-place finisher, Marc-Etienne McLaughlin (795,000).
Day 3 will begin at 1:00 p.m. PT and PokerNews' Live Reporting Team will be on hand to bring you all of the action, including hand-for-hand coverage once the official final table of nine is reached.
