The 2013 World Series of Poker continues today with Day 3 of Event #47: $111,111 One Drop High Rollers No-Limit Hold'em. What began with 166 players is now down to the final 26, each looking to make the money at the top 24. That means two players will go home empty handed today as they look to not only burst the bubble, but play down to a winner.
One man who will more than likely earn a payday is Sweden's Martin Jacobson, who bagged the chip lead last night with 3,255,000. Others who will no doubt make the money and a run at the title are Connor Drinan, who is just behind Jacobson with 3,250,000; Day 1 chip leader Brandon Steven with 3,140,00; and East Coast legend Matt Glantz with 3,005,000.
Others look to make a splash are the winner of last year's Big One for One Drop Antonio Esfandiari (2,970,000) and Poker Hall of Famer Mike Sexton (740,000). Both men are looking to become the only players to cash in the One Drop event for two consecutive years (Esfandiari won last year's event for $18,346,673 while Sexton finished in ninth place for $1,109,333).
Others still in contention are 2013 WSOP bracelet winner Martin Finger (2,910,000), Bill Perkins (2,750,000), Phil Laak (1,760,000), Anthony "End Boss" Gregg (1,750,000), Shaun Deeb (1,215,000), and 2012 Octo-Niner Jeremy Ausmus (995,000).
Action is set to kick off at 1 p.m. PDT, which is about an hour from now. The plan is to play to a winner or ten levels, whichever may come first. Either way, the PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be on hand to bring you all the action and eliminations from Day 3 of Event #47: $111,111 One Drop High Rollers No-Limit Hold'em, so stay tuned.
