Day 3 of the $25,000 World Poker Tour championship saw the field whittled down to just 35; the first prize established as a huge $1.5m and... a tsunami.
Well, perhaps that isn’t accurate. Apparently, during one of the breaks in play, the water displays in Vegas caught a sudden gust of wind, drenching those who stood outside on the balconies or courtyard.In more poker-related news, there are still some names in the field. Phil Hellmuth is chasing down his second WPT final table this year while Juan Carlos Mortenson is hoping for his second WPT title this year. It would be his third overall and the second time he has won the championship event.Davids Benyamine, Williams and “Devilfish” Ulliott are also still in the hunt for the seven-figure first prize. Shawn Buchanan remains the man to beat though, ending the day on 1.841m chips, almost 500,000 more than nearest rival Heather Sue Mercer.The leading stacks are as follows:Shawn Buchanan 1,841,000Heather Sue Mercer 1,364,000Robert Cooper 937,000Matt Stout 919,500Billy Baxter 887,500Faraz Jaka 856,000Todd Terry 817,500Phil Hellmuth 806,500David Williams 757,000David Benyamine 731,000Join us for more updates tomorrow.
