Final 54 Back in Action at Noon Tomorrow

Level 17: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Phil Ivey's abrupt elimination on the money bubble brought Day 3 action to an end after almost seven full levels of action.  The players are worn out after a long day at the tables, but they have the night to recover and the assurance of at least a $21,080 payday.

Tuan Phan is the end of day chip leader with 1,140,000.  He is the first player over a million chips and has a bit of distance between himself and his next closest competitor, Jason Somerville, who finished with 860,000.

WPT Champions Club members Allen Carter, Joe Tehan, and Joe Hachem will be back in action tomorrow, as will notables like David Sands, Noah Schwartz, Joe Hachem, Christian Harder, Dan Kelly, Amit Makhija, and Tom Marchese.

The official chip counts and seat assignments will be up shortly. Until then here are the unofficial top five chip counts from the end of Day 3:

1.  Tuan Phan  -  1,140,000  (228 BBs)
2.  Jason Somerville  -  860,000  (172 BBs)
3.  Joe Tehan  -  831,500  (166 BBs)
4.  Casey Stewart  -  791,000  (158 BBs)
5.  Larry Greenberg  -  707,000  (141 BBs)

Phil Ivey Eliminated on the Bubble to End Day 3 Action

Level 17: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Action folds around to Phil Ivey in late position and he open shoves all-in for his last 65,000 or so. Dave Baker is next to act and calls.

Baker's pocket kings have Ivey's pocket sixes in bad shape. Ivey gets no help from the board and the Season VI LA Poker Classic champ is eliminated in 55th place, just one spot shy of at least a $21,080 payday.

With that, Day 3 action draws to a close. The players are now bagging and tagging chips and will be back in action at 12pm on Monday.

We'll have official chip counts and an end of day wrap up coming shortly.

Sam Barnhart Eliminated in 56th Place

Level 17: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

With around 35,000 in the pot and the board reading 9spade8club6spade5spade, Sam Barnhart announces he is all-in from the blinds.  Joe Tehan is the only other player in the hand and he asks for a count.

After the dealer finishes counting down Barnhart's 143,000-chip stack, Barnhart leans back in his chair and folds his arms across his chest.

Tehan tries to get a read off his opponent.  "You got a flush? Sam?"

Barnhart remains silent.

"You can tell me," Tehan adds.  "I won't get mad at you. "

Barnhart throws his head back in silent laughter at Tehan's comment, but still doesn't say anything about his holdings.

After another minute or so, Tehan calls with 6club7heart for a nine-high straight.  Barnhart shows 5club9club for top and bottom pair.

The river is the 3heart and Tehan's straight holds to eliminate Barnhart, who is all smiles and well wishes as he heads out of the tournament area.

With Barnhart's elimination, Tehan has now jumped back up near the top of the counts and the remaining 55 players in the field are now on hand-for-hand play until the 54-person money bubble bursts.

Joe Tehan - 800,000 (160 BBs)
Sam Barnhart - eliminated in 56th place ($0)

The board runs out 10diamond3spade2spadeQheartQclub and the kings hold to eliminate Piccioli near the bubble in 57th place.

Barry Woods' Stack Getting Healthier

Level 17: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Since returning from the emergency room, Woods not only looks to be feeling better, his stack is getting bigger as well.

Stephen Chidwick raises to 10,000 from middle position, the player in the small blind calls, and Barry Woods calls from the big blind.  The flop comes JclubJdiamond9heart and the player in the small blind checks.  Woods bets 21,000, Chidwick calls, and the other player folds.

The two players check the Kdiamond on the turn, then the river brings the 4heart.  Woods bets 50,000 and Chidwick thinks a minute before calling.

Woods turns over Qdiamond10club for a king-high straight.  Chidwick mucks and Woods takes the pot.

Barry Woods - 230,000 (46 BBs)
