Kevin Erickson

After nine levels of one-hour blinds, it is Kevin Erickson at the top of the chip counts with 1,435,000 in chips. Mike Lancaster enjoyed his day at the felt, courtesy of bagging 1,240,000. Erickson started off his day playing a memorable three-bet hand against Joe McKeehen and continued to amassing chips throughout the tournament until ultimately coming out as the overall chip leader.

Erickson's road to victory will not be easy, with two bracelet winners remaining in the field. Yuval Bronshtein and Jorden Fox both bagged with 770,000 and 300,000 stacks respectively. Both players are both looking to add a second bracelet to their resume. Tina Tateossian also bagged 700,000 and is looking to become the first woman to win a limit hold'em bracelet since Kathy Liebert in 2004.

After a slightly delayed start, the tournament played nine one-hour-long levels. Many well-known players busted before the money, including Barry Greenstein, Yuri Dzivielevski, Terrence Chan, and Joseph Cheong. Once the money bubble burst, players busted more rapidly, including the start of day chip leaders Jeremy Maher and Anthony Zinno, and former main event champion Joe Mckeehan.

The final 16 players will resume play at 2:00 on October 7 with those players coming back to 30,000-60,000 limits; the tournament will be played down until a winner. The players are all guaranteed $4,232 but are all battling it out for $124,374 and a World Series of Poker gold bracelet.
