Patrick Ricci raised to 36,000 from the under-the-gun position. Joe Baldwin was in the small blind and reraised to 90,000. Ricci moved all in for around 400,000 and Baldwin made the insta-call.

Baldwin held the mother of all hands with the   . Ricci held the    and was crushed and in need of some serious help.

The board was run out       and that was it for Ricci, who finished in 13th place and the last player to go before we break things down to two tables. We'll have the redraw for you shortly.

On the flop of    , Martins Adeniya bet 16,000 and Taurean Davis raised to 38,000. Adeniya called and then the turn came the  . Both players checked and the river came the  . Adeniya fired 125,000 and Davis called. Adeniya tabled the    for a straight, but had to double check the board first before actually turning up his hand. He won the pot and moved to 1.375 million in chips while Davis dropped to 380,000.

Martins Adeniya opened to 35,000 from the cutoff, Taurean Davis folded his button and Andrey Danilyuk moved all in for 280,000 from the small blind. The second Eddy Scharf folded from the big blind Adeniya flipped up   for the call.

Danilyuk was in trouble with  .

The board ran   and Danilyuk hit the rail.

Erik Cajelais has had a very short Day 3 as he busted out just moments ago when he was all in preflop with two red nines against the two red jacks of William Haydon. The board ran out       to leave Cajelais drawing dead on the turn and sending him out the door in 15th place. He took home $23,537 for his finish.

Martins Adeniya opened to 35,000 from in the cutoff and Taurean Davis called on the button. Eddy Scharf defended his big blind and the flop fell  .

Scharf quickly moved all in. Adeniya asked for a "ballpark" count and when the dealer informed him it was about 170,000 he folded. Davis, who was still stacking his recently un-bagged chips, tanked for a bit and eventually called.



Davis:   (Freeroll!)

Although Davis was on a huge freeroll, neither the turn ( ) or the river ( ) were clubs and the two chopped the pot.

The cards are in the air for the final day of Event No. 26. Let's find our next bracelet winner!

Wednesday, June 16, 2010 1:24 PM Local Time

Today, on Day 3 of Event #26: $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em / Six Handed, we will hand out the 26th bracelet of the 2010 World Series of Poker.

Out of the initial 1,245 runners only 15 remain at three five-handed tables. Steven Cowley is our chip leader and the only player in seven-digits with 1,279,000 chips. Trailing him are Martins Adeniya (823,000), Jeffrey "jpapola" Papola (797,000) and of course the rest of the field.

William Haydon (776,000) was our chip leader entering into Day 2 and rarely faltered during the day. He continued to chip up and jockey himself into position for a run at his first WSOP final table.

Justin "Boosted J" Smith (641,000) and Erik Cajelais (345,000) are probably the most well known names remaining, but don't tell that to our friends from Deutschland. Eddy Scharf (211,000) is still alive after a fortuitous double up through Daniel Negreanu late last night.

The action is set to take off at 3 p.m. PST and we hope you keep it locked here for live updates from this and every 2010 WSOP event!
