Neilson Ships

• Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Rory Mathews opened to 32,000 from middle position, and as the action folded back to Daniel Neilson, he pushed all in for just a little over 200,000.

Mathews instantly folded and Neilson picked up some much-needed chips as he is still the tournament's short stack.

Slow Goings

• Level 22: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

We are now 10 minutes into Day 3 action, and so far we haven't seen a flop.

Raise and take it down or raise and three-bet then a fold has been the story so far.

With only two eliminations needed until we hit the final table, it is understandable that players are playing a little on the tight side.

2,100 players took to the felt on Sunday, and now just 11 remain with their eyes firmly on the gold bracelet and $345,037 first prize.

Also in contention are experienced tournament pros Chris DeMaci (591,000) and short stack Daniel Neilson (243,000) as everyone will firstly be looking to surpass the guaranteed $19,939 min-cash before locking up at least $25,392 on the final table.
