Day 3 Concludes

1,307 players started Day 3 of this year's Main Event. Brian Schaedlich started the day in the chip lead, but as fate would have it he would finish the day with only 22,000. The money bubble burst with Steve Chung being the unfortunate bubble boy. On a brighter note for Chung, he will not leave totally empty-handed. His seat for next year's Main Event is locked in, courtesy of Harrah's.

A new chip leader emerged in Jeremy Joseph, who enters Day 4 with 1,470,000 in chips. Jeremiah Smith, Owen Crowe, Alexander Kostritsyn, and Dag Martin Mikkelsen round out the top five in chips. Many pros were eliminated today including Jennifer Harman, Vanessa Rousso, Phil Gordon, and Thor Hansen. Two prior Main Event champions remain in the field. Phil Hellmuth will enter Day 4 looking for his 12th bracelet, while Johnny Chan will seek his 11th bracelet and third Main Event Championship.

Due to an extended bubble period, Day 4 will start Friday at 1 p.m. PDT. As always, PokerNews will be here to bring you all the exciting action. Please join us next time as we march towards a new World Champion.
