Banfield Triples Her Stack

Eric Froehlich raised it up from middle position, and Chiduziem Obi made it three bets from Froehlich's left. Melanie Banfield, in the next seat, cold-called, and Froehlich came along.

The flop came    , and both men checked to Banfield. She bet, they both called. The turn double-paired the board with the  , and both men again checked to Banfield. She tossed out her last orange T1,000 chip and was called by both opponents. Froehlich and Obi checked the   river.


Banfield let out a "whew" upon seeing her queens were good, and she now has more than 15 big bets after starting the day with just a few.

Banfield Doubles Through Mohamed

Melanie Banfield just opened the button, bet on the flop and bet allin on the turn. Ahmed Mohamed made the call preflop and check-called both flop and turn. The board was as followed when the cards were tables:     |  .

Mohamed (  ) must have had good hopes of eliminating Banfield with his turned king, but he was already drawing dead for this small pot. Banfield showed    for a flopped set. "That will win it" Mohamed said as the dealer brought out the   to complete the board.

Jeff Shulman Out

Jeff Shulman

We already have our first elimination of Day 3 of this limit hold'em tournament. Jeff Shulman raised from middle position, and Eric Froehlich reraised from the button. Shulman got the last of his very short stack in.


The flop came    , an airball for both and leaving Froehlich ahead with ace-high. A   turn meant Froehlich needed to catch up, and that's exactly what he did when he spiked the   on the river. Shulman, who final tabled the main event in 2009, has been eliminated from contention.

Jack Jiang, Where Art Thou?

Jack Jiang isn't in his seat yet so he's missing at least the first two hands. All the other players are here and ready to go.

Update: Jiang is here, but Aaron Ogus isn't yet. Hurry up Mister Ogus, we've started without you!
Update: Ogus is here as well!

From 19 to One

Eric Froelich - Chip leader

Good afternoon, and welcome back to the 44th annual World Series of Poker.

Today, 19 players return for the third and final day of Event #10: $1,500 Limit Hold'em, and the chip leader is two-time bracelet winner Eric Froehlich. E-Fro was the only player to bag more than 300,000 chips after Day 2, and his closest competitors are Mark Mierkalns (266,000), Morgan Newman (242,000), and Aaron Ogus (233,000).

Froehlich is the only bracelet winner returning today, but Queen made the final table of this event last year and has plenty of experience as well.

Jeff Shulman also has tons of experience on the felt. The 2009 November Niner is still looking for his first career bracelet - both of his parents Barry and Allyn Jaffrey have earned one - and he'll need to do a lot of work today as he's only starting the day with a few big bets.

The cards will be in the air at 2 p.m. local time. Be sure to stay tuned for all of your up-to-the-minute live updates straight from the tournament floor.
