Following ten hours of play, only 14 of the initial 91 players have survived to Day 3 of World Series of Poker Event #74: $2,500 Big Bet Mix.

Russia's Denis Strebkov ended the day as the chip leader with 1,402,000 chips after making a late surge up the leaderboard after flopping a set of aces against Amnon Filipppi's set of kings in a hand of Pot-Limit Omaha.

Among the other contenders for the bracelet on Tuesday is the 2018 champion of this event, Scott Bohlman.

Bohlman was at or near the top of the leaderboard all day and solidified his standing by making quads on the last hand of the night to eliminate Eugene Roemischer in 15th place. He’ll enter the day third in chips with 827,000, just behind Shanmukha Meruga, who finished with 877,000.

Noah Boeken (455,000), Jon Turner (415,000), and Jerry Wong (355,000) are among the others who’ll return to the Amazon room at 2:00 pm local time to vie for the $117,898 top prize and the coveted WSOP gold bracelet.

Thirty-two players in all will visit the pay window from this event, with Jake Schwartz (31st - $4,097), Michael Binger (28th - $4,481), John Racener (24th - $5,121), and Ray Henson (18th - $6,153) among those earning a piece of the $471,700 prize pool.

Those not fortunate enough to make the money included bubble boy Ismael Bojang, who was eliminated in a hand of Pot-Limit Omaha by Bohlman, along with Eli Elezra, David Williams, Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, and many more.

Wild Action, A Bit of Controversy, and an Unfortunate No-Show

Pot-Limit 2-7 Triple Draw was the game that saw a plethora of big pots and eliminations, including the elimination of Yuri Dzivielevski in 20th place at the hands of Anthony Ribeiro, who got his stack over a million at one point, but sunk back to 479,000 to finish the night.

That game is crazy enough as-is, but Ryan Laplante and Cody Wells were eliminated in an unfortunate quadruple-draw hand that wasn’t caught by anyone at the table.

The day also started with a bit of a down note as Dan Zack announced on Twitter that he was surrendering his stack because of Covid-19 symptoms. Zack later confirmed that he indeed had tested positive. Zack’s stack was put into play and blinded off as a result.

The remaining 14 players will return to the Amazon gold section Tuesday to play down to a winner and PokerNews will have all the wild big bet action for you from the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

No-Limit Hold'em

On the final hand of the night, Scott Bohlman raised in late position to 25,000 and Eugene Roemischer moved all-in for 98,000.

Bohlman didn't love the idea of calling, but decided it was worth it and did so.

Eugene Roemischer: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}
Scott Bohlman: {9-Hearts}{4-Hearts}

Bohlman had been caught stealing, but his thievery was rewarded on the {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}{8-Hearts} flop.

The {6-Spades} fell on the turn, and then for good measure, the {9-Diamonds} came on the river to give Bohlman quad nines and send Roemischer to the payout window to end the night.
