Levi Berger Leads the Final 14
If today is anything like the past two, it should be a fun final day of Event #11 $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em Six Handed. After ten levels of play yesterday, we turned 122 players into just 14, and at the end of the night, Levi Berger is the big chip leader with 1.42 million, which has everyone else covered by over 500,000 chips.
All of the stars came out for this event, and we still have a few notables still in the running for this event. Tuan Le has won many tournaments in his career, but a bracelet has always eluded him. This could be his best chance yet, as he comes into today second in chips with 873,000. The player in third knows plenty about winning bracelets: Scott Clements. He has won two of them, though his last WSOP win was back in 2007 in a $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha event. Clements will return with 842,000.
Rounding out the top 5 is Eddy Sabat (694,000) and Jacob Bazeley (638,000). Bracelet winner Cliff Goldkind sits in 9th place (318,000), and Mickey Petersen is at the bottom of the counts with 145,000. Petersen is one of the most experienced players of the final day, so don't count him out despite his short stack.
Day 3 is set to commence at 1 PM local time, and we are looking to crown another bracelet winner today. Once we get to the final table, Pokernews.com will be bringing you all of the action, hand-for-hand. You won't want to miss that, so don't go anywhere!
