The third and final day of Event #39: $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better is set to begin in an hour's time. and leading the way with over 20 percent of the chips in play is American Matt Vengrin. No other player bagged more than a quarter of a million chips, while Vengrin will start today with over half of a million and his eyes set on what would be his first career bracelet. His closest competitors are Tony Gill and Joseph Hertzog, who both bagged 249,500.
Mike Leah and Daniel Idema, who both have final tables under their belt at the 2013 World Series of Poker, enter Day 3 fourth and fifth in chips respectively. If either player wins, it would mark the eighth bracelet for Canada this summer, and the ninth of the year if you include Daniel Negreanu's win in the WSOP Asia-Pacific Main Event. It would also be Idema's second career bracelet.
Poker Hall of Famer Linda Johnson bagged the sixth largest chip stack after Day 2, and is looking for her second career WSOP bracelet, while WSOP legend Artie Cobb is looking for bracelet number five and Layne Flack number seven. If Flack achieves this feat it would be a hell of a comeback story - he will start the day with less than a big bet.
The cards will be in the are at 2 p.m. We hope to see you then!
