Farmer Leads Final Nine in Day 3 of $777 Lucky 7's No-Limit Hold'em
Day 2 of Event #75: $777 Lucky 7's No-Limit Hold'em has been completed and at the end of the day, just nine players remain to battle it out for the bracelet and $777,777.
Christopher Farmer ended the day with an impressive chip lead, bagging 77,400,000. Farmer starting to gain momentum nearing the end of the night after rivering trip fours and getting paid by Rodney Turvin who was the current chip leader. Shortly after that, Farmer won another monster pot as he eliminated Binchiat Tay with his pocket eights against Tay's pocket tens (eight on the river).
Rodney Turvin bagged the second-largest chip stack with 58,000,000. Turvin has a total of $94,865 in WSOP earnings and three cashes this year in the 53rd Annual WSOP.
Following behind Turvin is Kyle "Jack in the Box" Miholich who bagged a total of 31,700,000 after a very swingy Day 2 grind. He already has one WSOP Circuit gold ring but looks to capture his first WSOP gold bracelet as he has been having a fantastic series, cashing 11 times so far in the 53rd Annual WSOP. It is expected Miholich will bring out the Jack in the Box head assuming he makes the official final table on Day 3.
