A Champion Will Be Crowned Today
Welcome back to our coverage of the 2013 World Series of Poker! We're live from the Amazon Room in the Rio for Day 3 of Event #8: $2,500 Eight-Game Mix. Yesterday saw 192 players return to the felt and they played down through the money bubble of the top forty and beyond. At the end of the night, 19 players bagged up with Marco Johnson leading the field.
The field was stacked heading into Day 2 and that lead to several big name players busting without making the money. The likes of David Williams, Vanessa Selbst, Phil Ivey, Greg Raymer, Scott Fischman, Todd Brunson, Ashkan Razavi, Daniel Idema, and Jeff Lisandro all saw the rail before the bubble popped.
After the money hit, players began falling at a more rapid rate. Some of the notable names to cash in this field include Mohsin Charania, John Cernuto, Andy Bloch, Blair Rodman, Joe Cassidy, Andrey Zaichenko, and Christopher Vitch.
While all of those players fell at the hands of their opponents, the field still remains stacked heading into the final day. Notable names returning for the final day include Chris Tryba (287,800), Dario Alioto (216,400), last year's runner-up Greg Mueller (258,200), Robert Mizrachi (157,000), Randy Ohel (120,600), Eric Crain (117,700), Josh Arieh (101,600), Chris Reslock (72,000), and Mike Wattel (66,600).
