Welch Leads Going Into Day 3

• Ниво 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Ryan Welch

We began Day 2 with 178 players and a burst of the money bubble within the first level of play. When all was said and done, we were down to our final 12.

Our chip leader is Ryan Welch (1,524,000) who scored a massive double up in the last level of play. Welch has had some impressive online results as well as live scores, including a bracelet win in 2010.

Mark Dube came into the day as our chip leader and made a good run, but would bust in 35th place. Some notable players that made the money, but fell short of Day 3, included Scott Clements (70th), Joe Serock (52nd), Jude Ainsworth (46th), Phil Hellmuth (29th) and Nick Schulman (14th).

Hellmuth ran his pocket kings into the pocket aces of Will Failla late in the day and never really recovered. Hellmuth would bust a short time later.

Failla seemingly played steady and disciplined poker throughout the day to end under average, but with a workable stack of 421,000. Also steady and focused was Dan Smith who managed a big double late in Day 1 that allowed him to position himself for a deep run here on Day 2 and he is stacked at 887,000, which is good for second in chips.

We will be back at it tomorrow at 1 p.m. PT and the players will combine to one table after two eliminations and then one elimination later we will have our official final table of nine. We will play down to a winner and see someone walk away with 1st place prize money of $408,953 and a shiny WSOP bracelet. Please join us tomorrow for complete Day 3 action.

Play Finished For the NIght

[user252447] • Ниво 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

Play has come to an end for today with 12 players remaining.

A recap of today's events will be with you shortly.

Anthony Spinella Eliminated in 13th Place ($18,162)

Ryan Welch opened to 27,000 and Anthony Spinella reraised to 92,000 from the blind. Welch four-bet to 213,000 and Spinella met that with a five-bet to 360,000.

Welch moved all in and Spinella snap-called, but it wasn't good news as Welch turned over {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} and Spinella was looking for black on the flop after tabling {a-Spades}{k-Spades}. It was all red though as the flop came down {q-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} and the {8-Spades} turn left Spinella drawing dead. The {q-Spades} river was almost cruel he would be four-flushed, but with no more cards to come.

Welch gathered the huge pot and Spinella left beside himself.

Nick Schulman open shoved for 171,000 and got looked up by Reed Goodmiller.

Schulman had {k-Spades}{10-Spades} and was behind the {k-Hearts}{q-Spades} of Goodmiller.

The cards ran out {9-Hearts}{7-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{2-Spades} and the rest of Schulmans chips went to Goodmiller.

Steady As She Goes

[user252447] • Ниво 21: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante

With just over half an hour to go no one is taking huge risks at this point with marginal holdings, and there have been no all in confrontations to report.

Of course if someone wakes up with a big hand that could all change in an instant.

Goodmiller Doubles Through Smith

Dan Smith opened to 26,000 on the button and Reed Goodmiller moved all in.

Smith quickly called and tabled the {a-Spades}{k-Clubs} and had the {a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds} of Goodmiller dominated.

The dealer gave them a board of {10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades} and Smith couldn’t pick off another victim, doubling up Goodmiller instead.
