Today began with 56 players returning for Day 3 of Event #13 $1,000 No Limit Hold'em. Eliminations came fast and furious as player after player was eliminated on our march to the final table. Among the casualties were well known pros Ylon Schwartz, Burt Boutin, and Andy Black.
The final nine players are an ecclectic mix of players including amateurs, some of which have had past success at the WSOP, a pro hailing from Dublin Ireland, and an online superstar in Jared "TheWacoKidd" Hamby. The final nine players are:
