Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Eric Afriat Day 3 has ended at the WPT World Championship at the Borgata Hotel and Casino and the field played all the way down to the final 18 players on Thursday in Atlantic City. They will return tomorrow to play down to the WPT television table of six.

The chip leader at the end of the night is Eric Afriat with 2,029,000. He was also the chip leader at the end of Day 2 and he is currently the hottest player on tour. Afriat won the recent Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown and took home $1,081,184. Afriat has set himself up well to make a second WPT final table in a row as the whole field will be chasing him tomorrow.

Other stacks above a million are held by Abe Korotki (1,616,000), Anthony Gregg (1,499,000), Ryan D'Angelo (1,369,000), and Curt "Psycho Ninja" Kohlberg (1,097,000). The big names still in the tournament at this late hour include Byron Kaverman, Tom Dobrilovic, Hans Winzeler, Ray Qartomy, Justin, Tony Dunst, Bobby Oboodi, Brock Parker, and Keven Stammen.

We started with 68 today and big names lost before the money bubble burst when 36 remained included Amit Makhija, Matt Waxman, Eugene Todd, Garrett Greer, Jeff Gross, Rolan Israelashvili, Lee Markholt, Steven Silverman, Mike Leah, Brandon Steven, Orson Young, Nick Schulman and Phil Hellmuth.

A number of big names also made the money today, including Athanasios Polychronopoulos (34th), Jason Koon (32nd), Matt Stout (30th), Loni Harwood (29th), Jonathan Tamayo (28th), Jordan Cristos (27th), Jesse Sylvia (26th), Maurice Hawkins (25th), ClubWPT Qualifier David Daggett (22nd), Scott Seiver (21st), and Jeff Madsen (19th).

Tune back in tomorrow at noon ET to follow all of the play down action from Day 4 at the WPT World Championship. The WPT Live Updates team will have all of the big hands, chip counts, photos, and videos for you from New Jersey.

Jeff Madsen Out in 19th Place ($33,967)

Level 20: 8,000-16,000, 2,000 ante

Jeff Madsen moves all in under the gun for 24,000, Keven Stammen calls from the cutoff, and Glenn Lafaye calls from the big blind. Any further betting will create a separate side pot between Stammen and Lafaye.

The flop comes Adiamond7diamond3club, Lafaye checks, Stammen bets 35,000, and Lafaye folds.

Madsen turns over 10diamond7heart for a pair of sevens, but he needs to improve to stay alive against Stammen's Aspade9heart (pair of aces).

The turn is the 2spade, the river is the 4club, and Stammen wins the pot with his pair of aces to eliminate Madsen in 19th place.

Jeff Madsen  -  Out in 19th Place  ($33,967)

With 18 players remaining, action stops for the night. Play will resume tomorrow at 12:00 noon ET with about 22 minutes left in Level 20.
