Three days ago 3,166 people registered to play for a bracelet in Event 53: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em. After a full ten levels of play the final two players have emerged. Neil Willerson and Vladimir Mefodichev were locked in a heads up battle for about an hour before tournament staff enforced a hard stop after ten levels of play. Due to this ruling we will have to wait until tomorrow for Day 4 to crown the next World Series of Poker champion.
The two players will return on Tuesday at 2:00 PM to battle it out on the felt until a champion is crowned. Willerson will return as the chip leader with 8,920,000 while Mefodichev will be sitting on a stack of 5,335,000.
