At 2 p.m. local time, fourteen players will return to action in Event #79: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino with a winner potentially crowned today!
Andras Nemeth (2,895,000) will lead the pack after an impressive showing in the latter stages of Day 2. The Hungarian player has a wealth of experience and is well known to the poker world for his online achievements under the 'Probirs' alias.
Nemeth's immediate competition comes in the form of David Gonzalez (2,185,000), Jonas Mackoff (2,125,000), and David Dibernardi (1,050,000), who all bagged over a million chips.
Frenchman Ivan Deyra (735,000), and WSOP bracelet winner Michael Tureniec (710,000) will also return to action, alongside the likes of Guillaume Nolet (675,000), Karen Sarkisyan (545,000), Will Givens (390,000) and Patrick Leonard (310,000).
Givens will be looking for his second final table appearance of the series after he secured second-place from a 6,140 player-field in Event #59: $600 No Limit Hold'em - Deep Stack Championship for $245,606.
British player Patrick Leonard also has the opportunity of a second WSOP final table of the summer after he took ninth place in Event #4: $1,500 Omaha Hi/Lo 8 or Better back on May 30.
Play will begin in level 21 with blinds at 10,000/20,000 and a 20,000 big blind ante. There will be 15-minute breaks at the end of every second level, with a 60-minute dinner break scheduled for the end of level 26.
Event #79 is scheduled to play across four-days; however, the Tournament Director may decide to play to a winner today.
