Forty-one players took their seats this afternoon at the start of Day 3 in the World Series of Poker Event #5: $565 Colossus No Limit Hold'em, but only nine advanced to Wednesday's final table. The winner will take home the top prize of $1,000,000.

The chip lead is held by Mark Babekov, who ended the day with 19,025,000 in chips. Second in chips is Erkut Yilmaz with 16,000,00, followed by Taylor Black with 13,300,000 chips.

Among the notables at the final table are Matt Affleck and Luke Vrabel. The chip leader at the start of the day, Raul Martinez Requena, busted in a hand against Yilmaz in 11th place. After his bust-out the players merged onto the unofficial final table, where the bubble lasted a bit more than three hours until Jason Orrell was eliminated in 10th place.

Christopher Mitts Eliminated in 12th Place ($62,208)

Nível 34 : 120,000/240,000, 40,000 ante
Christopher Mitts
Christopher Mitts

We got to the table to see the {3-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{10-Clubs} flop. Both Christopher Mitts and Mark Babekov checked. On the turn, the {9-Diamonds} appeared. Babekov checked, Mitts bet 240,000, and Babekov raised to 10,000,000 — he liked it as a round number. Mitts called, which meant he was all in.

Mitts showed {9-Spades}{7-Spades} for a pair of nines, and Babekov showed {A-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} for a flush draw. The river brought another diamond for the flush, so Babekov climbed to more than 20,000,000 chips. Mitts was eliminated in 12th place.

Hugo Perez - 14th Place

Taylor Black raised to 500,000 from under the gun, and Hugo Perez re-raised to 1,300,000. Black took his time and decided to go all in. Perez snap-called.

Perez: {K-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Black: {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}

The board ran out {J-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} — no help for Perez, and he was eliminated in 14th place.

Luke Brereton Eliminated in 15th Place ($48,788)

Nível 33 : 100,000/200,000, 30,000 ante
Luke Brereton - 15th Place
Luke Brereton - 15th Place

Luke Brereton got the last of his chips in on a {2-Clubs}{2-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop and got a call from Matt Affleck.

Brereton had an overpair to the board with {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}, and Affleck was on a draw with {q-Clubs}{6-Clubs}.

The {j-Hearts} turn and {q-Hearts} river missed the flush but gave Affleck queens up to send Brereton to the rail.

Justin Gish Eliminated in 17th Place ($38,510)

Nível 32 : 80,000/160,000, 20,000 ante
Justin Gish - 17th Place
Justin Gish - 17th Place

Justin Gish moved all in for 1,445,000 and, having got a count, Erkut Yilmaz called from the button.

Kent Coppock was in the small mind and he pondered the flat call from Yilmaz before letting his hand go.

Erkut Yilmaz: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}
Justin Gish: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

The board ran out {3-Spades}{q-Spades}{j-Hearts}{j-Spades}{4-Clubs} to eliminate Gish.

Coppock had a chuckle that Yilmaz had found the aces and had tried to set him up for a trap.

Gavin O'Rourke - 18th Place
Gavin O'Rourke - 18th Place

All in before the flop Gavin O'Rourke was the player at risk but with the best hand and he faced off against Jason Orrell.

Jason Orrell: {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}
Gavin O'Rourke: {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}

The flop of {a-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{7-Spades} drew gasps from the rail and the table as Orrell spiked a set. The turn {j-Hearts} and river {k-Hearts} confirmed O’Rourke’s unlucky exit.

Luke Vrabel Eliminates One Foe and Doubles Through Another

Nível 29 : 40,000/80,000, 10,000 ante
Luke Vrabel
Luke Vrabel

Ronald Lemco moved all in from under the gun for approximately 480,000, Robert Elliott reshoved from middle position for about 2,100,000, and Luke Vrabel called all in for 1,830,000.

Lemco tabled {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}, but he trailed both Elliott, who showed {Q-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}, and Vrabel, who dominated them both with {A-Hearts}{A-Clubs}.

The board ran out {10-Spades}{8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} and Vrabel's hand stayed best. He rocketed out of his seat and let out an ear-splitting cheer, prompting a player at an adjacent table to tell him to take a deep breath.

"Don't tell me to take a deep breath!" Vrabel belted. "That was the biggest #$^@%$ spot of my life."
