Play has concluded for the evening in Event #66: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'Em on Day 3. Emile Schiff and Chris Klodnicki are the last two remaining players and they will be returning at noon on Saturday to finish their heads-up battle.

The day began with 23 players returning from Day 2 and they were quickly dwindled down to just 18 players on two players. It took some time for the chip leaders to emerge from the pack, but when they did it was Klodnicki that began eliminating some opponents. By the time the final tabled had been reached, Klodnicki had a comfortable chip lead that he would not look back on for some time.

However, Klodnicki and Schiff found themselves part of a massive pot when four-handed play began with Schiff coming out on top giving him a huge chip lead at that time. Klodnicki would not let that bother him, as he managed to stay alive until heads-up play began and slowly worked the chips back to even. The two players would find themselves in another large pot and again, Schiff took it down to regain the chip lead he lost earlier. That is where the action stands heading into Saturday with Schiff holding 2-to-1 chip lead.

Final Table Summary

When the official final table began, it was Klodnicki who held the big chip lead and he didn't slow down. Dylan Hortin (9th place - $34,083) was taken out by Klodnicki after his pocket nines were beaten on the river. After the dinner break, Aditya Sushant (8th place - $44,255) was next to hit the rail after running his ace-king into the pocket aces of Schiff. Kenny Hallaert (7th place - $58,083) put up a good fight on the final table but just fell short. He was all-in preflop against Schiff, but would end up losing to a straight.

Six-handed play lasted a couple levels until Darren Elias (6th place - $77,047) got into a race scenario with {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} against Schuyler Thornton's {a-Spades}{q-Spades}. Thornton made a flush and eliminated Elias. Ulrich Schnetter (5th place - $103,281) stayed quiet for most of the night but eventually ran his ace-king into the pocket aces of Schiff again. Schnetter was unable to catch up and was sent to the rail.

Ben Zamani (4th place - $139,896) fell victim to the Klodnicki comeback when he lost most of his chips with {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts} against {a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}. He was unable to connect with the board and was left with just one small blind. He would be eliminated in the next hand. Then there was Thornton (3rd place - $191,453) who ran into the steamrolling train of Schiff. He got all of his chips in the middle with {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds} but Schiff rolled over {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}. Thornton could not hit an ace and that led to the heads-up match between Schiff and Klodnicki.

When the two players return, the action will begin at Level 32 with the blinds at 80,000/160,000 with a 20,000 ante. Continue to follow with the PokerNews team to find who will become the champion.
