It's time to crown another bracelet winner as Day 3 of Event #21: $1,500 8-Game Mix 6-Handed is set to kick off at 2 p.m. with just 10 players in contention for a piece of gold jewelry and a $145,557 first-place prize.
Although Day 2 saw the late elimination of fan favorite Daniel Negreanu, there are still some very notable players left in this small field. For one, there's French high-stakes online cash player Alex Luneau, who has won nearly $5 million in tracked hands in his online nosebleed career. Luneau has already made a bit of noise here at the 2017 WSOP, showing off his mixed game prowess with a 15th-place finish in the $1,500 Dealer's Choice.
Chris Vitch, another noted mixed game player who took down his first bracelet in 2016 in $2,500 Mixed Triple Draw Lowball, is also among the final 10. He already booked a 10th-place finish last week in the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship.
Everyone, though, is trying to catch Gregory Jamison, who finished atop the counts with 714,500. Second-place Ron Ware has 511,000, so it's a tightly bunched group overall as limits for limit games head to 12,000/24,000, while blinds will be 3,000/6,000 for big-bet games.
Stay tuned to PokerNews throughout the day to see who is crowned 8-game champ at this year's WSOP.
