Cary Marshall opened to 32,000 from under the gun, Neil Channing called on his direct left, and the action folded to John Nelson, who defended his big blind.

The flop fell    , and the action checked to Channing who fired 36,000. Only Marshall called. Both players knuckled after the   turned, and the   completed the board. Marshall thought for a moment, then tossed out what looked like 80,000. Channing, who is still stacking his chips, grabbing a tower of orange T5,000 chips and green T25,000 chips, and raised to around 200,000.

Marshall tanked, then moved all in. Channing quickly called.

Channing tabled    for a straight, and Marshall showed    for the same hand. The two chopped the pot.

Cards are in the air for the start of Day 3.

Neil Channing will be looking for his first gold bracelet.

Day 3 is set to begin for Event 43, $1,500 No Limit Hold'em, of the World Series of Poker. Just 20 players remain of the 2,770 that began and Zach Clark leads them all. But he's in a virtual three-way tie with Balazs Botond and Neil Channing.

Barely two big blinds separate the leaders and James Mackey is being chased by John Nelson. RandyLew, Jesse Yaginuma, Henry Lu and Mark Ketteringham have plenty of chips to make a move up the counts.

After just two eliminations the field will have a total redraw and then again when the field combines to one ten-handed final table.

The large field generated a juicy prize pool and big money is up for grabs. A big money jump comes at nine players, more than twice what each player is guaranteed at this point.

We'll play to winner tonight, hopefully ending before ten levels - which would require a fourth day of play. Follow all the WSOP action to see who grabs the gold bracelet on
