Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino and the 2017 World Series of Poker (WSOP) for Day 3 of the Event #30: $10,000 H.O.R.S.E. Championship!
The 150 player field has been reduced to just the final 15 that will all be eyeing the bracelet and $383,208 first prize now that they are guaranteed a $16,951 payday.
Although his stack flurried up and down during the last few levels of the day, Daniel Negreanu made sure his was at its peak once he bagged the chip lead with 1,213,000. Negreanu already has five WSOP cashes to his name so far this series, but this will be the one he craves if he can break through to capture his first WSOP bracelet of the summer and add that elusive seventh title to his already impressive resume.
On his heels is 2016 WSOP Player of the Year Jason Mercier who bagged 541,000. Mercier won this exact event last year and will be looking to accomplish a rare feat, when he attempts to become a back-to-back champion. Scott Bohlman (756,000), Don Zewin (704,000), Richard Chase (647,000) and David Bach (572,000) round up the top five. Bach has already tasted success this year after winning the $1,500 Dealer’s Choice 6-Handed event and will be looking to become the first multiple bracelet winner of the series.
Brian Rast, Eric Rodawig, and Anthony Zinno are still in the mix while Phillip Wallace and Mark Gregorich round up the rear of a Day 3 field that is stacked in depth of skill, accomplishments and ambitions.
The PokerNews live reporting team will be on hand from 2 p.m. (PDT) to provide continuous live updates of all the Event #30 action. So stay tuned right here to PokerNews.com as the journey of the next WSOP bracelet winner is mapped out live on your screen and from the 2017 WSOP!
