Barry Hutter leads the final 14 heading into the Day 3 of Event #54: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em. Hutter has over 2 million in chips, nearly twice as much as his nearest competitor, Joseph Wertz, who has just over 1 million.
Play resumed at Level 22, with the big blind at 16,000. There are several short stacks, so with blinds this high it might not take long to reach the final nine players and the official final table. Even the short stacks can be dangerous, though, as a single double up will put them right in the thick of the competition.
Cards will be in the air at 1 p.m. local Las Vegas time, so stay with us here at PokerNews.com as bring you all the updates while the players determine the next World Series of Poker Bracelet Winner!
