Andrew Brown

Welcome to PokerNews' Day 3 coverage of Event 39: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha. Following 20 levels of play, a field of 293 players is down to just 13 hopefuls, each with his eyes set on the first-place prize of $661,000, as well the coveted World Series of Poker bracelet.

Andrew Brown is the dominating chip leader entering today with 1,774,000, but he has a talented bunch hot his heels. Three-time bracelet winner Sammy Farha is second in chips 1,129,000 and is looking to win his fourth. Also still in the hunt is Jason Mercier. With two Pot-Limit Omaha bracelets on his résumé, Mercier is a threat despite being one of the short stacks.

Here is the Day 3 table and seat draw.
