Day 3 On the Horizon
The second day of play concluded last night with just sixteen players remaining. Out of those players left, poker superstar Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi is the chip leader with 646,000 chips. The player in second on the leaderboard is none other than two-time Circuit championship ring holder Dwyte Pilgrim.
The player who holds the record for most WSOP-C victories is also still in the hunt. That would be Men "The Master" Nguyen and he has a total of four Circuit wins. Matt Brady and Justin Bonomo remain, along with WSOP gold bracelet holders Robert Cheung and Matt Graham.
The plan is to play all the way through the event today until we have a winner. We're scheduled to begin shortly at noon local time, so stay tuned for all the live action from right here at Caesars in Las Vegas!
