Jesse Okonczak leads WSOP Circuit Florida Day 3

Jesse Okonczak leads WSOP Circuit Florida Day 3

Tuesday, 1 March 2011

When the dust settled in Florida after Day 2 of the World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event had concluded, it was Jesse Okonczak who held the chip lead over the 24 remaining players after bagging up more than 1.7m after two days of play.

Chip leader Okonczak isn’t the player who got the most chins wagging today, though – that was in fact 2007 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Jerry Yang. Yang managed to double with A-Q through A-K before taking part in the day’s most ridiculous pot. He 3-bet shoved over 300,000 chips (blinds were 1,200/2,400) on a 5h-9c-4s flop and was called, showing Kd-8d for a king-high bluff. It was good! His opponent held 7-6 and didn’t outdraw the 2007 champ.

Unfortunately for Yang he was just shy of a cash, busting out in the late seventies. He was joined by TJ Cloutier, Mike Beasley and Tommy Vedes who all played Day 2 but won’t be returning for Day 3 today.
