The third Day 3 of the 2014 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific has been reached, and for the second time this festival it will be an all-Australian affair.

Six players will return tomorrow to conclude the AU$1,650 Pot-Limit Omaha event and crown the third gold bracelet winner from Down Under this year. Leading the pack is Zane Ly, who is appearing at his second final table this series. Earlier in the AU$1,100 No-Limit Hold'em Accumulator, Ly finished in sixth place and took home AU$25,234. He bagged up a field-leading 181,000 in chips.

Coming in places two, three, and four on the leader board are three Australian Poker Hall of Fame members — Jason Gray (160,000), Jeff Lisandro (69,000), and Gary Benson (68,000). Lisandro will be looking to earn his sixth WSOP gold bracelet, whereas Benson will aim for his second.

And then you have the two Pauls — Paul Sharbanee with 46,000, and Paul Mac with 34,000 — bringing up the rear.

At the start of Day 2, 22 players remained. Six of those needed to hit the rail before the money was reached, and Daniel Chevalier was the first to go. He was followed out the door by Ami Barer, Tam Truong, Darian Tan, and Michael Wang before Edison Nguyen was eliminated on the bubble in 17th place.

After Nguyen's finish just outside the money, Van Marus, David Lim, Mike Watson, Paul Elliott, Scott Davies, Ismael Bojang, and Mel Judah all headed to the payout desk. It was then that the remaining nine players formed around one table. Vadim Pinsky hit the rail in ninth place, and Oliver Gill headed out the door in eighth. That left just seven players and only one more needed to go home before play was ended for the night. That proved to be Stephen Woodhead in seventh place.

Each of the six remaining competitors has locked up a minimum of AU$9,282. Up top is AU$51,660 plus the coveted WSOP gold bracelet. Play will resume at 12:10 p.m. local time tomorrow, and you can be sure to find all the live updates from start to finish right here on PokerNews.com.
