The cards are now back in the air for Day 3!

Sam Stein will start the day 1st in chips.

The 25 returning players for Day 3 of the $1,500 Pot Limit Omaha event are eyeing the final table and ultimately winning the gold bracelet. Sam Stein enters the day as the chipleader with 843,000, almost a full 200,000 ahead of Ben Lamb in second.

We have two returning bracelet winners hoping to add to their collection. Tex Barch won a bracelet in Pot Limit Omaha in 2010 and Brock Parker won two within a week in 2009. They'll plenty of competition with notables Christian Harder, Adam Junglen. Andrew Chen, Rami Boukai and Tommy Le still in the field.

Warren Fund proved with his play last night that he's not intimated by the pros, bringing just over 500,000 chips back today. There are six short stacked players all under 100,000 that may look to double up early or find something else to do today.

We'll play a full ten levels today, beginning at 4 p.m. PST and hope to have a winner by the end of the night. If not the remaining players from the final table will return for a Day 4. The three tables to start the day will begin in the Blue section of the Amazon Room and then move to a feature table once they hit ten players.
