Some familiar names ran deep but were unable to survive to the end including five-time WSOP bracelet winner and former $10,000 PLO Championship winner Daniel Alaei, who could only lock up a ninth place finish for $72,468 on this occasion.
Francesco Grande (10th - $72,468), Andjelko Andrejevic (11th - $56,703) and Adam Hendrix (12th - $56,703) were also mainstays but just missed out on a spot at the final table.
Four-time WSOP bracelet winner Shaun Deeb made it to the final 24 but didn't get the chance to take his seat at the final three tables. As players were on the move, Deeb was still involved in the action against Dash Dudley, with the board down ace-six-eight-four. Dudley raised a 255,000 bet from Deeb to 800,000 and snap-called after Deeb moved all in for 1.3m.
Dudley revealed jack-ten-seven-five for a straight and was way ahead of Deeb's two pair holding ace-jack-seven-four. The river card only improved Dudley to a flush and Deeb departed to enter Event #58: $50,000 Poker Players Championship.
UK's Luke Schwartz came into Day 3 off the back of his first bracelet win in Event #49: $10,000 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw Championship last week, and he was going along well until his run was halted in 21st place by a flopped set over set situation.
Former bracelet winners Daniel Fuhs, David Halpern, Ryan D'Angelo, Sandeep Pulusani, Vladimir Shchemelev, Scott Bohlman (18th - $30,532), and Kevin Eyster (13th - $45,229) were among the names to depart during the action.
That's all for now, but stay tuned to PokerNews for all the final day's action as a brand-new champion is crowned.
