Day 3 of Event #52: $1,000 Seniors Championship turned out to be a memorable day of WSOP action as 148 starting players became just 16 after nearly 12 hours of scintillating poker with all remaining players making a huge jump in payouts.

Bagging the overwhelming chip lead at the end of the night was Christopher Cummings who finished with 22,650,000 which is well over double the second largest stack and is one-fifth of the chips remaining. The Houston, TX native emerged as a chip leader in the middle part of the day and just continued to climb from there, eliminating several players.

Second in chips with 9,700,000 was Dennis Jensen who is enjoying quite a successful and fun ride in what he says is his first ever WSOP event.

Right on his heel in third place was Daniel Lujano with 9,325,000.

There is a drop-off from the third place stack to fourth where Eric Sunde sits with 7,325,000 and Todd Hansen rounds out the top five stacks with 7,315,000.

• Nível 31: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante
Billy Sewell
Billy Sewell

Billy Sewell raised from the button before Christopher Cummings three-bet from the small blind to 1,400,000. Sewell announced he was all in and Cummings snap-called.

Billy Sewell: {a-Clubs}{7-Hearts}
Christopher Cummings: {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}

"You did it again," Sewell muttered to himself. "Come on lucky seven."

But the {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} flop instead gave Cummings top two pair, which improved to a full house on the {j-Spades} turn. The river came the {4-Spades} and Sewell was eliminated.

Players are now redrawing for seats at the final two tables.

Greg Strong's short stack was all in preflop holding the {j-Clubs}{5-Clubs}. He was up against the {k-Spades}{k-Hearts} of Daniel Stebbins who had called.

The board ran out with no help to Strong as it came {3-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{4-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds} and Strong was the next victim of the string of rapid knockouts.
