Tran Leads Final Eight
Sixty-seven players made the cut to begin Day 3 of Event #58: $1,111 Little One for One Drop, but only a select eight are still in contention after 10 levels of play today. Nghi "Henry" Tran leads the octet with 4,130,000, as his trademark aggressive play, along with some good luck, has propelled him to the top.
Notable online powerhouses Bryn Kenney and Mike Sowers were among the first to fall today, and Allyn Jaffrey Shulman and Day 2 chipleader Joe Wilson weren't far behind. Gordon Huntly was the unfortunate victim of the final table bubble.
Once there, all ins were frequent but short stacks carried the day, including Kevin O'Donnell getting it in with the shortest stack and the worst hand but coming out on top in a three-way pot. Adriano Santa Ana was the only player to fall since final table play began, but others will surely be joining him early on Day 4.
Play resumes at 1 p.m. in the Amazon Room, and while the majority of the players in the room will be jockeying for early positioning in the Main Event, one of the eight players remaining here will be pocketing a gold bracelet and $663,727. Be sure to tune in to find out whom that will be.
