Mitch Garshofsky will start Day 3 as chip leader of the unofficial final table with 1,687,000 in chips. Rounding out the top three in chips will be Samuel Taylor (1,430,000), and Brandon Miller (1,324,000). Three of the final ten players started out the day with top ten chip stacks including Soukha Kachittavo, Joseph Johanssy, and Jeremy Meacham. The table's shortstack belongs to Je Wook Oh, who recently made a deep run in the World Series of Poker Main Event, taking 86th for $68,624.
Perhaps one of the more interesting stories of the final table belongs to Matt Buonomo who started today dead last in 91st place with only 23,000 in chips. He managed to chip up all day long, and at one point was one of the top stacks of the final two tables only to lose a big hand to a four flush after flopping a set of tens holding on a board. His opponent held , and won with a jack high flush when the came on the turn. Buonomo will be starting 7th in chips of this unofficial final table.
A few of the more notable players that unfortunately finished shy of the money today included; David 'Renick' Patterson, two time Circuit ring winner Chris Leong, and Ness Reilly. Reilly's husband Tim went on to bubble the final table, cashing for $11,159 in 11th place.
