For a $1,500 buy-in event, tournaments that are usually filled with previously unknown players looking to make their biggest World Series of Poker scores, there are plenty of big names still alive for Day 3 of the Event #49 $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better, including former Main Event champions and bracelet winners, all looking to add to their poker resumes.

One of those big name players is last year's WSOP Player of the Year George Danzer, who caught heat late in the Day 2 to bag a top three stack, finishing with 612,000.

Connor Drinan, pictured above, bagged the second biggest stack yesterday, finishing with 635,000, but they're both trailing the Day 2 chip leader, as Galen Hall, pictured above, finished with an impressive 776,000.

He will return looking to win his first WSOP bracelet today, while Erik Seidel, Vanessa Selbst and Danzer will look to win their ninth, fourth and fourth bracelets, respectfully.

Selbst will have a uphill battle to climb, as she'll return as the second shortest stack, while Seidel is sitting in the top half of the leaderboard with 338,000.

Cody Crawford also makes his second straight Day 3 in this event, after finishing third last year. He'll also have tough road, returning with just under 180,000.
