Stephens Eliminates Tang

• Level 26: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

Jason Tang moved all in for his remaining short stack and was called by Timothy Stephens. [Removed:124] still had to act and thought it over for about 30 seconds before folding.

Tang was behind with the {k-Spades}{j-Spades} vs the {a-Clubs}{q-Spades} of Stephens.

Hope was doused on the flop when it came {2-Clubs}{a-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} and the turn and river ran out {2-Spades}{9-Diamonds} to send Tang home with a 21st place finish.

Brutal River Sends Gottesman Home

• Level 26: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante
Joshua Gottesman
Joshua Gottesman

Joshua Gottesman opened under the gun to 105,000 and Asi Moshe three-bet to 325,000 sitting directly to his left. Action folded back to Gottesman who jammed for his remaining stack, Moshe called.

Joshua Gottesman: {a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}
Asi Moshe: {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}

Gottesman completely missed the {4-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds} flop and needed some help to stay alive.

The turn came the {k-Hearts} and Gottesman took a commanding lead.

The river, however, was not on Gottesman's side as it fell the {9-Spades} and he was eliminated from the tournament.

Gerrits River Shove Gets Through

• Level 26: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

In a pot of about 1,100,000 on a dangerous looking board of {9-Spades}{3-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{10-Spades} Martijn Gerrits moved all in to put Corbin White to the test. Gerrits had White slightly covered so it was a decision for White's tournament life.

After thinking it over and staring down the motionless Gerrits, White eventually decided to pitch his cards and send the pot over to the Dutchman.

Day 3 of Event #44: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Bounty is officially underway.

It’s time for the final day of action in Event #44: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em Bounty! A WSOP bracelet will be won today, as out of an original field of 1,807 entries, only the remaining 23 players will return at 12 noon to battle to the winning prize of $253,933 plus any bounties accumulated throughout the tournament.

Asi Moshe is the only player remaining with multiple bracelets, with two WSOP bracelets to his name. He enters the day second in chips with a stack of 4,530,000.

Looking to deny Moshe his third bracelet are a host of players including the only other WSOP bracelet winner in the field, Harrison Gimbel, he enters the day fourth in chips with 2,985,000 and will be aiming to add his second bracelet to his 2017 $3,000 No-Limit Hold’em bracelet. As well as chip leader Damjan Radanov (4,625,000) and Timothy Stephens (3,220,000) who is third in chips.

Well-known Dutch player Martijn Gerrits (2,145,000) will be looking to make his second bounty event final table of the 2019 WSOP, having done so previously in Event #2: $10,000 Super Turbo Bounty. He has a WSOP circuit ring to his name as well as a 15th place finish in last year’s Main Event.

French professional Kalidou Sow will be attempting to make his first big splash in the stateside WSOP as he sits on the lower end of the chip counts with 1,000,000 in chips and Vitalijs Zavorotnijs (1,540,000) would become the first bracelet winner from Latvia if he were to emerge victorious today.

There is plenty of play left in the tournament as play starts back at level 25 with blinds at 20,000/40,000 and a 40,000 big blind ante, meaning that the average chip stack is still close to 50 big blinds, giving everyone a great chance to emerge as the victor. Each level is 60 minutes long with a 15-minute break every two levels of play.

The campaign for the coveted WSOP bracelet will begin today at noon and will continue all the way until a winner is crowned. Play will be streamed on CBS All Access once the field is trimmed to six, which is slated for 7 p.m. Pokernews will provide live updates of who is eliminated, which players are building chips and ultimately who will take home the WSOP bracelet.
