Day 3 of Event #43: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em SHOOTOUT at the World Series of Poker starts today at noon local time. Twelve out of 1,025 players that started on Tuesday will return to play.

Tim West is leading the field but the stacks are all pretty close to each other due to the shootout format. West already has two WSOP Circuit rings but will be looking to add his first bracelet to his achievements. Matas Dilpsas is the player with the shortest stack with a difference of only four big blinds less. This will be his highest WSOP cash up till now and he’ll be looking to bag the win in the end.

Other notable players remaining are multiple WSOP Circuit ring winners like Steve Foutty, Alex Rocha, Robert Kuhn, and bracelet winner Paul Michaelis. They are all guaranteed a minimum cash of $16,844, but they will be aiming for that WSOP gold bracelet, $257,764 for first, and bragging rights.

The blinds will begin at 3,000/6,000 with an ante of 1,000 and they will continue playing until a winner has been crowned. The levels will be 40 minutes long with a 15-minute break every three levels and an hour-long dinner break around 6:30 p.m.

This is what the final 12 players are playing for:
