It is Day 3 of Event #55: $1,500 No-Limit Hold’em and 17 players are coming back to battle for a bracelet and a top prize of $582,321.

On Day 2 we saw the money bubble burst early in the day's first level and the pace of eliminations continued at a feverish clip until the event was left with just 17 participants. The overnight chip leader was David Jackson who bagged 1,487,000.

Michael Ferrer is right on Jackson's heels with 1,146,000. Aaron Massey, chip leader for most of Day 2, will come in to Day 3 stacked third at 949,000. Also coming back for Day 3 is last year's Main Event sixth-place finisher, Marc-Etienne McLaughlin (795,000).

Day 3 will begin at 1:00 p.m. PT and PokerNews' Live Reporting Team will be on hand to bring you all of the action, including hand-for-hand coverage once the official final table of nine is reached.

David Jackson raised to 35,000 from early position and Bernardo Da Silveira Dias moved all in for 132,000. Action folded around to James Dorrance who moved all in for 941,000 from the big blind. Jackson open-folded pocket eights.

Dias: {a-Spades}{q-Hearts}
Dorrance: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}

Dias celebrated as he saw a queen in the window when the flop came {q-Spades}{3-Clubs}{4-Clubs}, then Jackson winced as the {8-Clubs} fell on the turn. The river {6-Clubs} completed the flush, though, for Dorrance, and Dias was sent to the rail.

Jackson Represents the Flush

Nivel 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante

David Jackson checked from the small blind with the board reading {5-Spades}{9-Clubs}{A-Diamonds} and then called when Asi Moshe bet 51,000. The {J-Spades} landed on the turn and Jackson check-called again, this time a more substantial bet of 105,000.

Jackson then led for 125,000 when the potentially flush-completing {2-Spades} appeared on the river. Moshe checked his hole cards, discovered they were not spades, and sent them into the muck.

Allen Shoves on McLaughlin

Nivel 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante

The 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event final tablist Marc-Etienne McLaughlin raised to 33,000 from middle position, a raise that saw a couple of folds. Robert Allen was not folding, though — instead he three-bet all-in.

McLaughlin asked for a count of his stack, but ultimately folded, leaving Allen to scoop the pot.

Big Bets Work for Ferrer

Nivel 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante

The standard raise at Table 450 has been either 32,000 or 33,000 but Michael Ferrer made a raise to 40,000 from under the gun. Only Marc-Etienne McLaughlin, in the big blind, called.

McLaughlin checked to his opponent on the {K-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{7-Spades} flop, Ferrer bet 60,000 and McLaughlin let his hand go.

Balzano Doubles Through West

Nivel 22 : 8,000/16,000, 2,000 ante

Paul Balzano moved all in for 133,000 from early position and Tim West moved all in from the small blind. Balzano was at risk with {a-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} versus the {a-Spades}{10-Clubs} of West.

The flop came {3-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}, giving Balzano more outs. The {2-Diamonds} turn matched Balzano and the {9-Spades} river completed the board, assuring the double for Balzano.
