Day 3 of Event #68: $1,000 + 111 The Little One for One Drop No-Limit Hold'em ended with the 14 players still alive and looking to become the next Little One for One Drop champion. The remaining players are guaranteed a minimum cash of $29,490 but all have their sights on the $559,332 top prize and the prestigious gold bracelet.

It’s Christopher Staats who will be returning in pole position tomorrow, Thursday July 12, for Day 4, bagging up a stack of 6,715,000 million in chips.

Staats surged to the top with some late wins, including a huge double up against Richard Douglas. The pair got all the chips in on the river on an board showing for two a straight. Douglas, holding two pair sixes and fours, called Statts' all-in river shove only to discover the latter had hit the straight holding pocket eights.

Among the big stacks who bagged on Day 3 are also Erwann Pecheux (6,495,000), Richard Cox (5,250,000), François Tosques (4,675,000) and Sung Joo Hyun (4,400,000). Justin Liberto, chipleader at the beginning of the day, will also return for Day 4 with a stack of 2,140,000 to try to catch the second gold bracelet of his career.

There were 125 players that began the day with a bag out of the 1,007 initial entries this year. Some bracelet winners and notables faces were lost along the way such as James Calderaro (56th for $8,284), Benjamin Moon (57th for $8,284), Alexandru Papazian (61th for $8,284), Arkadiy Tsinis (71th for $6,909), Norbert Szecsi (77th for $5,813), Jeff Gross (88th for $4,935), 888poker Ambassador Dominik Nitsche (91th for $4,227), Georgios Sotiropoulos (99th for $4,227) and three-time bracelet winner Dutch Boyd (110th for $3,654).
