Can Greg Mueller Secure the Victory This Year?
Can Greg Mueller Secure the Victory This Year?

Welcome back to our coverage of the 2013 World Series of Poker! We're live from the Amazon Room in the Rio for Day 3 of Event #8: $2,500 Eight-Game Mix. Yesterday saw 192 players return to the felt and they played down through the money bubble of the top forty and beyond. At the end of the night, 19 players bagged up with Marco Johnson leading the field.

The field was stacked heading into Day 2 and that lead to several big name players busting without making the money. The likes of David Williams, Vanessa Selbst, Phil Ivey, Greg Raymer, Scott Fischman, Todd Brunson, Ashkan Razavi, Daniel Idema, and Jeff Lisandro all saw the rail before the bubble popped.

After the money hit, players began falling at a more rapid rate. Some of the notable names to cash in this field include Mohsin Charania, John Cernuto, Andy Bloch, Blair Rodman, Joe Cassidy, Andrey Zaichenko, and Christopher Vitch.

While all of those players fell at the hands of their opponents, the field still remains stacked heading into the final day. Notable names returning for the final day include Chris Tryba (287,800), Dario Alioto (216,400), last year's runner-up Greg Mueller (258,200), Robert Mizrachi (157,000), Randy Ohel (120,600), Eric Crain (117,700), Josh Arieh (101,600), Chris Reslock (72,000), and Mike Wattel (66,600).

We caught up with the action to see Michael Malm, Dario Alioto, and Mike Wattel take in a flop of {8-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}. Malm and Alioto checked and Wattel fired out. Malm called and Alioto raised. Wattel made it three bets and Malm got out of the way. Alioto stuck around.

The {10-Hearts} turned and Alioto checked. Wattel moved all in for his last 5,100 and Alioto called.

"I'm Admittedly Stalling"

Nivel 19

Josh Arieh mockingly called the clock on himself, then another player obliged him.

"I'm admittedly stalling," Arieh told the tournament director in an attempt to get the tournament to be played hand for hand on the bubble of a redraw and money jump. The director offered him only a penalty in response.

Popescu Outted by Crain's Seven

Nivel 19

2-7 Triple Draw

Eric Crain opened before the draw and Septimiu Popescu three-bet. Marco Johnson called and Crain made it four bets. Both players called. Popescu took one, Johnson drew two, and Crain took one.

Popescu led out and Johnson called. Crain raised and Popescu three-bet it right back. Johnson called again and Crain capped it. Both players called.

Both Popescu and Crain stood pat while Johnson took two once more. Septimu bet his last 8,500 and was all in. Johnson called and Crain raised when it came to him. Johnson called once more and drew one card on the draw. Crain stood pat.

Johnson checked and Crain fired a bet. Johnson folded and Crain fanned {7-}{6-}{5-}{4-}{2-}. Popescu shook his head, flashed an {8-} low and mucked his hand. His elimination has prompted a total redraw to the final two tables.
