Welcome to PokerNews' Day 3 coverage of Event #11: $365 PLO GIANT Pot-Limit Omaha.

The starting field of 3,250 entries is down to just nine players, each looking to capture the first-place prize of $116,015 and a coveted World Series of Poker gold bracelet.

Leading the way is Srinivas Balasubramanian, holding nearly a quarter of the chips in play at the final table. Sitting fifth in chips, though, is Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi. Already with a bracelet this summer in the Poker Players Championship, there are few players as dangerous after accumulating a stack as Mizrachi is. Seeking his fifth bracelet, Mizrachi will no doubt be mixing it up early and often today.

Here are the official final table seating and chip counts:
