Puchkov Leads 14 Players into Day 3 of $3,000 H.O.R.S.E.; Defending Champion Hastings in Contention

Konstantin Puchkov

Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino for the final day of the 2019 World Series of Poker (WSOP), and Day 3 of the Event #87: $3,000 H.O.R.S.E.

Two days ago, 301 players took to the felt to create a prize pool of $812,700. Following two long days of limit action across five poker variants, just 14 players remain in the quest for one of the final bracelets of the summer as Russian Konstantin Puchkov holds the chip lead with 938,000.

Puchkov won his only WSOP bracelet in 2010 in a $1,500 H.O.R.S.E. event, and he'll be looking to add the third Russian bracelet of the year to the collection.

Sitting second in chips is Frenchman Paul Tedeschi who finished the day with 822,000 after being one of the short stacks leading up to the bubble, and then once the money was reached. The player in third overall is accustomed to running deep in this event as Brian Hastings won this event in 2018 for his fourth career WSOP bracelet when he bested the 354-player field for a $233,202 payday.

Also still in contention are WSOP bracelet winners Jim Collopy, Andrey Zaichenko, Tom Koral, and Paul Volpe, along with Day 1 chip leader Harold Klein.
