Day 3: Time to Find a Champion

Papola leading the way
Papola leading the way

Welcome back to PokerNews' coverage of Event #10: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed here at the 2011 World Series of Poker. We've got a great final 15 here in this event including six-max superstar Jeff Papola, 2010 bracelet winner Ryan Welch, online superstar Ravi Raghavan, Event #4 fourth-place finisher Eddie Blumenthal and high roller Bryan Colin.

Papola will be the one topping the field in chips with 1.088 million, but Alexander Wice isn't too far off the pace with 1.013 million. No one else boasts seven figures, but that could all change shortly after the cards are in the air. Michael Hauptman will begin the day as the short stack, returning with just 139,000 in chips.

With 15 players left, everyone has locked up a minimum payday of $19,802. First place is well over half a million dollars at $544,388, so the pressure is on. One thing for certain is that this event plays much more aggressive than normal, being six-handed and all. So the fireworks will be going off all day long.

Could it be Over for Grover?

Geffrey Klein has managed to double up to 510,000 through Sean Grover in one of the first hands of Day 3 of WSOP Event #10.

The action folded to Grover who raised preflop to 26,000 from the button; Klein shoved for 242,000 from the small blind, forcing Jeffrey Papola off his big blind before Grover snap-called with {A-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}.

Klein showed {A-Clubs}{8-Clubs} and both players managed to pair up on the flop of {A-Spades}{2-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}, but Klein was hopeful. "Suckout one time," he said under his breath.

Bink! Down came the {8-Spades} on the turn, and Klein's hand held when the {2-Clubs} bricked out on the river.

Michael Hauptman Eliminated in 15th Place ($19,802)

Nivel 21 : 6,000/12,000, 2,000 ante

From the cutoff seat, Michael Hauptman moved all in for 111,000. Bryan Colin called on the button and everyone else folded. After beginning the day as the shortest stack in the tournament, Hauptman was all in and dominated with his {A-Spades}{10-Diamonds} to Colin's {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds}.

The flop, turn and river ran out {K-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{6-Spades}{8-Clubs}{A-Hearts} to give Colin the win and send Hauptman out the door in 15th place.

Klein Firing Away

Nivel 21 : 6,000/12,000, 2,000 ante

Under the gun, Geffrey Klein raised to 26,000. Joshua Mullen called from the small blind and the dealer spread the {9-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} in the middle of the felt. After Mullen checked, Klein bet 50,000. Mullen made the call.

The {Q-Hearts} added a third piece of love to the board on the turn and Mullen checked again. Klein fired 100,000 and Mullen gave it up.

Wong's All Right

Darren Wong has picked up a pot against Eddie Blumenthal to move up to 436,000 in chips as the action continues between our 14 remaining players.

The action folded around to Blumenthal who raised to 27,000 from the small blind; Wong called out of the big blind, so off they went to the flop of {3-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}{2-Hearts}, which they both checked.

On the turn of the {10-Clubs}, Blumenthal check-called Wong's bet of 22,000 before doing the same after Wong's bet of 53,000 on the river of the {9-Clubs}.

"Straight - I flopped it," Wong said, quickly flipping over {6-Clubs}{5-Spades}. Blumenthal mucked and Wong raked in the chips.
