Day 3 Ends With Two Remaining; Glazier In The Lead

Jackie Glazier - looking to be the first woman to win an open even since 2008.

After ten long levels of No-Limit Hold'em action, Day 3 of Event: 41: $3,000 No-Limit Hold'em has come to an end with just two players remaining - Greg Ostrander and Jackie Glazier. Both players had the option to play an additional level to try and finish, however, both agreed to bag and tag and come back tomorrow. Glazier will come in as chip leader with 9,480,000, while Ostrander will come in with 3,070,000.

Day 3 began with 30 hopefuls, including several well-known pros and our Day 2 chip leader Joseph Chaplin. However, half of field was sent to the rail within three levels, including Shannon Shorr (30th), Dan Shak (28th), Scott Montgomery (17th), and Jason Koon (14th).

When it eventually got down to a single table, the remaining ten players re-located to the main stage. Here is how the table draw looked:

1Kyle Frey1,910,000
2Morten Mortensen495,000
3Darryl Ronconi1,045,000
4Roger Fontes318,000
5Greg Ostander2,645,000
6Joseph Chaplin745,000
7JP Kelly1,379,000
8Jackie Glazier1,646,000
9Paul Vas Nunes1,678,000
10Dylan Hortin890,000

It took two-and-a-half levels for the first player to bust, but when he finally did, it would be JP Kelly after running his    all in preflop into the    of Hortin and failing to improve.

Out in ninth place was Hortin, who was sent to the rail after his    fell to Vas Nunes'    when Nunes caught a pair of queens on the river for the knockout.

Next to go was Frey, who also fell victim to a Vas Nunes suckout when Frey's    was bested by Vas Nunes'    after Vas Nunes caught a flush on the turn.

Our Day 2 chip leader, Joseph Chaplin, would fall next when he found himself in an three-way all in holding the   . Ronconi would scoop the pot when he turned the   holding the    and Chaplin was eliminated.

Ronconi found himself out in sixth place after getting all in after a series of preflop raises with the    against Ostrander's   . The board bricked out for Ronconi and he was eliminated.

Fontes went out next after finding himself short-stacked and pushing all in over the top of a Glazier raise with pocket deuces. Glazier called with    and the       board counterfeited Fontes' pocket twos - eliminating him in fifth place.

Mortensen was sent home in fourth after Vas Nunes scored yet another suckout when his    spiked a pair of treys on the river after Mortensen got all in against him with   .

Our final elimination of the night occurred after Paul Vas Nunes got into a preflop raising war with Glazier. Vas Nunes called an all-in shove of Glazier and his    was bested by Glazier's    after she turned an unbeatable flush for the knockout.

Will Glazier become the first woman to win an open World Series of Poker Event since Vanessa Selbst, who took down a $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha event back in 2008? Or will Ostrander come from behind and claim his first WSOP gold bracelet?

Play is set to resume tomorrow at 1:00 PM PST, where Glazier and Ostrander will play to a winner no matter what. Stay tuned right here at PokerNews to find out who will claim victory and the $742,020 prize that goes along with it!

Until then, goodnight from Vegas!
