Only ten players remain in Event #3: $2,500 Freezeout No-Limit Hold’em from a starting field of 732 with a gold bracelet and $320,059 on the line for whoever comes out on top.
Currently it is Scott Seiver, hunting for his fourth gold bracelet, who leads the way with 6,150,000. Seiver enjoyed a late rush on Day 2, eliminating Jan Bednar and Shawn Daniels in 12th and 11th place respectively to bring that day’s action to a close and set the stage for the final ten players. David Goodman, sitting on a stack of 4,100,00, is the closest to catching Seiver. Rounding out the top three is two- time bracelet winner and old school poker pro Steve Zolotow who returns with 3,125,000. Other notables to make the final day include Spanish high roller regular Sergio Aido (2,570,000) and poker commentator Nick Schulman (1,415,000).
