Vanessa Selbst, Scott Seiver at Top of NAPT Mohegan Sun Main Event Leaderboard After Day 3Published on April 10th, 2010 12:14 am EST
There are 24 players remaining in the NAPT Mohegan Sun main event after three full days of play.
At the top of the tournament leaderboard is Vanessa Selbst, who will take a stack of around 2.3 million chip with her into Saturday's action.
Scott "mastrblastr" Seiver is trailing just behind Selbst, as he managed to finish Day 3 with around 2.24 million in chips.
Cliff "JohnnyBax" Josephy (1.33 million), Dale Jamison (1.3 million) and Derek Raymond (1.3 million) round out the list of the top five chip stacks heading into Day 4.
Vanessa Rousso (720k) and Jordan Morgan (667k) are also still alive in the event.
Phil Ivey hit the rail in 29th place after being eliminated by Elio Fox late in Day 3.
Ivey committed the rest of his chips holding Kh-Th on a board of 4h-Ah-9s-Td, and Fox made the call holding As-8d. The river missed Ivey, and he was sent to the rail in 29th place for $16,000.
All 24 of the players who are still alive in the tournament are guaranteed at least $19,000 for making it this far. Everyone who makes it to the Sunday final table will take home a minimum of $60,244, with the eventual winner of the event walking away with $750,000.
Scott "mastrblastr" Seiver is on a serious roll right now.
Seiver started his run in mid-December when he took down a $5k preliminary event at the 2009 Doyle Brunson Five Diamond World Poker Classic for $218,008. A few months later, Seiver placed fourth in the $25k Invitational High Roller Bounty Shootout at the NAPT Venetian for $215k. Just a few days after that, Seiver took down the $25k High Roller event at the LA Poker Classic for an additional $425,330.
As hot as Seiver is running right now, he'll have some serious competition if he wants to take down the NAPT Mohegan main event, as Vanessa Selbst and Cliff "JohnnyBax" Josephy are both WSOP bracelet holders who will also be taking top 5 chip stacks with them into Day 4 on Saturday.
