Wow. Well that didn't take long. It was the second hand of play, and while we were still organizing everything, we were called over to the table, hearing that two players were all in! When we got there, we saw that Chris Summers had come in for a raise, and Cy Williams had shoved his short stack all in in the cutoff. The next player to act was Freddy Deeb on the button, and he announced himself all in for 451,000! The blinds folded, and it came back to Summers, who took little time in calling to put both of them at risk!


Deeb and Summers were flipping for a ton of chips, while Williams would need a ton of help to survive. The flop was a monster for Deeb, as it came    , giving Deeb top set. The turn came the  , giving everyone outs for the win. However, the river came the  , filling Deeb up and giving him the win. Deeb not only doubled up, but eliminated Williams in the process, and just like that, Deeb is a part of the million chip club!

Play has just started, and we already have a huge hand involving Freddy Deeb that we are typing up as we speak.

Noon has come and gone but at least all players are here and accounted for. They are unbagging their chips and action should be underway soon.

Brandon Crawford has been nearly the wire-to-wire chipleader of the event.

Day 3 of the World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event at the Bicycle Casino will see a champion crowned. Day 2 saw 14 long hours of action on the felt that began with 244 players and only 17 would remain standing. Brandon Crawford (2.25 million) sits atop the leaderboard and hopes that he can finish what he started - he has been at the top of counts since midway through Day 1.

Crawford will have his work cut out for him, Leroy Spires (1.2 million), David Singantiko(1.16 million) and Chris Summers (1.113 million) are all within striking distance. Not to be discounted is Freddy Deeb, though he sits neat the bottom of the counts he proved yesterday he run up his stack quickly. Deeb was one of the handful of players that chose to bypass the Day 1 flights and enter Day 2 with a 20 big blind stack. Before the first break Deeb had already run his stack into the top ten counts.

It should be noted that the player we reported as Ante Sante yesterday is actually Nick Phoenix. He was unwilling to give his real name for personal reasons but had to report his real name for bagging and tagging his chips.

Action is scheduled to be underway at 12 p.m. PST with the feature table streaming online at with an hour delay. Follow all the WSOPC action live until we crown a champion live on
