Welcome back to the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino and the 2019 World Series of Poker for Day 3 of Event #10: $1,500 Dealers Choice.
This event started with 470 entrants just two days ago as a prize pool of $634,500 was created. Once Sergey Altbregin was eliminated on the bubble by Mike Ross during a Pot-Limit Omaha orbit, the likes of Patrick Leonard (68th), Valentin Vornicu (66th), Ryan Hughes (64th), Ian Johns (63rd), Alex Kuzmin (55th), Andrey Zaichenko (53rd), Ben Yu (50th), Quinn Do (48th), David "ODB" Baker (41st), Frank Kassela (35th), Greg Mueller (32nd), and Joey Couden (26th), all fell short of a Day 3 berth.
Heading into the scheduled final day of play, just 21 players remain. These players are currently guaranteed $4,754, but all eyes are set on the $144,957 first-place prize along with the coveted WSOP gold bracelet.
The United Kingdom's Benny Glaser is the overnight chip leader after bagging 489,500 in chips. Glaser holds WSOP bracelets in 2-7 Triple Draw (2015) and two in Omaha Hi-Lo (2016 twice), and is best positioned to add a fourth in Event #10. Australian Rob Campbell sits in second place with 454,500 and is known as one of the best mixed game players - both cash game and tournament format - from his country. In third place - and the only other player above 400,000 in chips - is Hawaiian Michael Chow who sits with 443,000 and will be looking to add to his WSOP bracelet collection that features a 2010 WSOP bracelet in Omaha Hi-Lo.
Also still in contention include WSOP bracelet winners Frankie O'Dell, "Miami" John Cernuto, Scott Clements, Naoya Kihara, Jesse Martin, John Monnette, Robert Mizrachi, Josh Arieh, and Andrey Zhigalov.
