Each of the remaining contestants has locked up $44,807, with the eventual champion claiming a high stakes gold bracelet and top prize of $1,251,860.

The field is led by Ben Lamb in search of his second WSOP gold bracelet. Lamb was among the group of late registrants but managed to build up a stack of 3,885,000 entering Day three, ahead of Nathan Zimnik (2,535,000) and David Benyamine (2,340,000).

Lau Shoves the First Hand

Nível 21 : 15,000/30,000, 30,000 ante

John Beauprez opened to 60,000 on the button and Matthew Wantman called from the small blind. Ka Kwan Lau re-raised to 240,000 from the big blind which put Beauprez in the tank. Over a minute passed and Beauprez finally folded but Wantman called.

The flop came {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and Wantman checked to Lau who shoved all in for just over 200,000. Wantman instantly mucked and Lau scooped the first pot.

Coleman Doubles Through Yockey

Nível 21 : 15,000/30,000, 30,000 ante

Maxx Coleman raised in middle position, and both Amir Mirrasouli and Bryce Yockey called in the blinds. Mirrasouli checked the {k-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{6-Diamonds} flop, and Yockey raised the pot. Coleman slid his remaining stack into the middle instantly, while Mirrasouli folded.

Coleman turned over {a-Spades}{k-Spades}{q-Clubs}{7-Clubs} for top pair, but was trailing Yockey's two pair with {k-}{10-}{x-}{x-}. The turn {5-Hearts} changed nothing, but the river {q-Diamonds} gave Coleman the best hand to double up.

Wantman Rivers Two Pair to Double Up

Nível 21 : 15,000/30,000, 30,000 ante

Shaun Deeb raised to 100,000 on the button and Matthew Wantman defended from the big blind. The flop came {6-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} and Wantman led for 50,000, Deen called as the {8-Clubs} came on the turn.

Wantman led out with a bet of 155,000 and Deeb raised the pot. Wantman deliberated for a couple of minutes before finally sticking in his stack of 485,000.

"I don't have much," Deeb said as he rolled over {q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{8-Spades}. But he was actually in the lead with his pair of eights against the {a-Spades}{7-Spades}{7-Clubs}{5-Clubs} of Wantman. The river brought the {a-Hearts} and Wantman spiked one of his many outs to score a double up.
