Martinez Executioner Again, Fells Torrecillas

Raul Martinez raised to 45,000 on the button, and Francisco Torrecillas three-bet to 135,000 in the small blind, leaving himself 35,000 behidnd. Martinez four-bet to put Torrecillas at risk, and he went into the tank, looking to see if anyone at other tables would be eliminated in that time frame. After a few minutes, Kyle Cartwright said, "I need a clock, please."

When the floor's countdown reached twenty seconds, Torrecillas said, "Twenty? At five, I call." He called right around that point.

Raul Martinez:   

Martinez wouldn't find a king on the     flop, but he did on the   turn, and the unfortunate Torrecillas hit the rail after the   river failed to provide him with an ace.

Martinez Wakes Up With Blades

Action folded to Rafael Moraes, and he moved all in from the small blind for about 200,000. Raul Martinez quickly called in the big with   . Moraes had only   , and the       board didn't offer anything in the way of a sweat.

De Silva, Guillen, Cartwright Headline Day 3 of $3,000 Six-Max

Angel Guillen

Day 3 of Event #31: $3,000 No Limit Hold'em 6-handed is set to kick off at 2 p.m. local time, with the remaining 20 players from a starting field of 754 scheduled to play down to a final table of six. Leading the way is two-time WSOP bracelet winner Upeshka De Silva with 1,965,000 chips, good for just over 98 big blinds at the start of play. Nicholas Howard (1,700,000) and Thomas Cazayous (1,690,000) also command massive stacks, while Wojtek Barzantny (1,300,000) and Veerab Zakarian (1,100,000) round out the top five.

The rest of the diverse field (ten different countries are represented by the remaining twenty players) include two bracelet winners in Mexico's Angel Guillen (670,000), who won his WSOP bracelet in 2009, and Kyle Cartwright (490,000), who shipped his bracelet in 2014. Canada's Demosthenes Kiriopoulos (145,000) will have some work to do as the short stack in this fast-paced format.

Play will begin today with Level 21 (10,000/20,000 with a 20,000 big blind ante) and the remaining field has already locked up $14,423, with all eyes on the top prize of $414,766 and the coveted WSOP bracelet. Levels will be one hour in length, with a fifteen-minute break after every two levels and a dinner break after the sixth level of play today.

Stay tuned right here to the PokerNews blog as we break down all the exciting six-handed action straight from the tournament floor at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino!
