After two starting flights and a 10-hour Day 2, just 148 out of a field of 5,404 players have made it here to Day 3 of Event #52: $1,000 Seniors Championship.

The player in the best position heading into the day is David Kluchman, who built up a massive stack of 2,745,000. Only April Facey with 2,330,000 is within one million of Kluchman's chip lead.

Among the pack that will try to catch Kluchman today are Eli Elezra (1,515,000) and Barry Greenstein (810,000). Others still with a chance on Day 3 include Allen Kessler (325,000) and bracelet winners Pat Lyons (745,000), Adrian Moreno (530,000), and Antonin Teisseire (470,000).

The final 148 players will resume play at 10 a.m. PST in the Amazon Room. Day 3 will consist of 10 hour-long levels, with a 60-minute dinner break following Level 29 around 7 p.m.

They've already survived a massive starting field to get this far. By the end of the day, the 50-and-over club will be that much closer to winning the WSOP bracelet and $662,594 first prize.

PokerNews will be on hand throughout the day as 148 players inch their way closer to the final table.
