Welcome back to Day 3 of Event #54: Big Blind Antes $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em. The 31 remaining players will return at 2 p.m. local time, with the plan being to play to a winner some time tonight.

Jonathan Abdellatif starts this final day of the tournament with a massive chip lead with 2,725,000, while number two on the leaderboards Barry Hutter will begin with 953,000. Other hopefuls still in the running for the coveted WSOP gold bracelet and the first-place prize of $522,715 are David "MissOracle" Yan (714,000), Kevin Song (675,000), and Kristen Bicknell (298,000). Scroll down for a look at everyone's start-of-day stacks and seat assignments.

Last year's eighth-place finisher Kris Homerding also found a bag at the end of Day 2, and he'll return seventh in the counts as he hopes to improve on his $63,457 score in this event a year ago. To do that he'll need to finish in sixth place or higher. Right now the players who return are all guaranteed to win at least $12,399.

Players will return at Level 21, with 6,000/12,000 blinds and a big blind ante of 12,000. As noted, play kicks off at 2 p.m., so come back then and stay tuned to PokerNews for updates throughout the day and night as we find out together who will be the Event #54 champion.
