Event #7: $10,000 Pot-Limit Hold'em Championship

Day 3 Will See 27 Reduce to One . . . Hopefully!

McLean Karr begins the day third in chips.

Last night we were scheduled to play to a final table in the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold’em Championship; however, the calculated and patient play of the players made is so we just cracked the money at the final 27. Today, those players will return in an attempt to play down to a winner, who’ll claim the first $10K Championship bracelet of the series and the $573,456 first-place prize.

The player best positioned to do just that is Stephen Chidwick, who emerged as the chip leader at the end of Day 2 with 697,000. Joining him are some stiff competition that includes McLean Karr (593,000), Amir Lehavot (628,000), Jarred Solomon (447,000), and Jason DeWitt (447,000), who all sit atop the leaderboard. In addition, notables Nicolas Levi (392,000), Robert Mizrachi (426,000) and Mike Matusow (85,000) all remain on Day 3.

The plan for the day is to play to a winner, but in all likelihood, we’ll probably play ten levels and hit the hard-stop time before that happens. Our best guess is we’ll make it down to five or six players and then return on Monday to play it out, but we’ll have to wait and see if that prove accurate. The PokerNews Live Reporting Team is stationed in the Amazon Room and is ready to bring you all the action and eliminations from the $10,000 Pot Limit Hold’em Championship. Day 3 is set to begin at 3:00 PM PST, so check back then for all the latest.
