Day 3 of Event #43: $1,000 Double Stack No-Limit Hold'em gets underway at 10:00 a.m. local time with 149 players returning to the felt. The remaining players are guaranteed to take home a payday of at least $3,124 but they will all be trying to capture the first place prize of $446,983 and of course a World Series of Poker gold bracelet.
Leading the way is Jeff Platt, who is well-known for providing commentary on ESPN and PokerGO as well as being the co-host of the PokerNews Podcast. Platt will be looking to win his first WSOP gold bracelet and with a chip leading stack of 3,315,000, the poker broadcaster is in great shape. He is followed by Zach Daly (2,905,000) and David Guay who rounds out the top three with 2,900,000.
Former WSOP bracelet champions that are still in contention include Sejin Park (670,000), Martin Jacobson (590,000), and Michael Wang (775,000).
Play will begin at Level 21 which features a small blind of 10,000, big blind of 25,000 and an ante of 25,000. There will be a 15-minute break every two levels and a 60-minute dinner break after Level 19, at approximately 7:00 p.m.
