After nine levels of one-hour blinds, it is Kevin Erickson at the top of the chip counts of Event #12: $1,500 Limit Hold'em with 1,435,000 in chips. Mike Lancaster enjoyed his day at the felt, courtesy of bagging 1,240,000. Erickson started his day playing a memorable three-bet hand against Joe McKeehen and continued amassing chips throughout the tournament until ultimately coming out as the overall chip leader.

Erickson's road to victory will not be easy, with two bracelet winners remaining in the field. Yuval Bronshtein and Jorden Fox bagged 770,000 and 300,000 stacks, respectively. Both players are both looking to add a second bracelet to their resume. Tina Tateossian bagged up 700,000 chips and is looking to become the first woman to win a limit hold'em bracelet since Kathy Liebert in 2004.

After a slightly delayed start, the tournament played nine one-hour-long levels. Many well-known players busted before the money, including Barry Greenstein, Yuri Dzivielevski, Terrence Chan, and Joseph Cheong. Once the money bubble burst, players rapidly busted, including the start-of-the-day chip leaders Jeremy Maher and Anthony Zinno and former Main Event champion Joe McKeehen.

The final 16 players return to their seats at 2 p.m. on October 7; they come back to blinds of 30,000-60,000. The players are all guaranteed $4,232 but are each battling it out for the $124,374 top prize, a World Series of Poker gold bracelet, and the title of champion. That champion will be crowned on October 7.

Louis Werman
Louis Werman

Kevin Erickson opened from middle position and Louis Werman got the rest of his stack in from the button. Erickson called and the hands were revealed.

Louis Werman: {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}
Kevin Erickson: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

The players were flipping and Werman found no help on the {2-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{6-Diamonds} flop. The {a-Spades} turn left him looking for a river queen or jack, but the board completed with the {9-Hearts}, eliminating Werman and extending Erickson's chip lead.

Rep Porter had gotten coolered for most of his chips when his full house ran into the quads of Tom McCormick.

Porter was all in, but there was side action between Adam Tyburski and Yuval Bronshtein.

Tyburski and Bronshtein both held ace-king on the {k-Spades}{6-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{7-} board, which was good to chop. Porter's hand hit the muck and he left the tournament area.

Marco Johnson was all in and at risk preflop against Ian Glycenfer.

Marco Johnson: {a-Diamonds}{6-Spades}
Ian Glycenfer: {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

Johnson needed help and didn't find any on the {3-Spades}{q-Clubs}{4-Clubs} flop.

The {j-Clubs} locked in the hand for Glyfcenfer, and the meaningless {a-Hearts} completed the board; Johnson exited the tournament area.
