Event #1: $500 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold'em

Day 3 Awaits

Sean Drake

Welcome to PokerNews' Day 3 coverage of Event #1, the $500 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold'em tournament. The starting field of 850 is down to just four hopefuls looking to capture a coveted WSOP gold bracelet. The event had been scheduled to conclude last night. However, 10 levels were not enough to determine a winner so a third day will be needed to award the bracelet.

The chip counts heading into the day are as follows:

Sean Drake1,058,000
Jason Baker727,000
Claudio Falcaro420,000
Christopher Perez347,000

Sean Drake holds the lead, but former chip leader Jason Baker is within striking distance. Don't count out Claudio Falcaro or Christopher Perez either, as both have played marvelous short-stack poker to keep their bracelet hopes alive.

Play will resume at 3:00pm local time, about one hour from now, so be sure to keep it here at PokerNews for all of the action!
