Welcome back to Day 3 of Event 42: $2,500 Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better where Jeff Lisandro sits atop the counts with 22 players remaining.
Lisandro is seeking a sixth WSOP bracelet, something only 11 other players have accomplished in the 43-year-history of the Series. But the 2009 WSOP Player of the Year will have to negotiate his way through an especially tough field of remaining competitors to reach that goal.
In second position sits Perry Friedman, looking to add a second bracelet to the won he earned in 2002 in a $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Eight-or-Better event. And in third sits a certain poker TV announcer looking to improve on a 12th-place finish in last summer's $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better event, Norman "Beyond Fairly Tale It's Inconceivable" Chad.
Rounding out the top five are two more talented competitors, George Danzer and Yuval Bronshtein, and it doesn't get any easier from there, with Tom Schneider in sixth. Schneider won this same event in 2007, the first of two bracelets he won on his way to winning that year's WSOP Player of the Year.
There's still a long way to go, with lots of small bets, big bets, split pots, quarters, and scoops to go before a winner is found. Join us for all of the coverage about an hour from now when play resumes at 2 PM local time.
