James Carroll Leads World Series of Poker Main Event After Day 3Published on July 13th, 2010 4:06 am EST
Itís still early days yet, but a two-time World Series of Poker main event winner (and poker legend) is one of the chip leaders after Day 3 of the 2010 WSOP main event.
Johnny Chan, who is the owner of 10 World Series of Poker bracelets (and two main event titles), managed to finish Day 3 with around 636k in chips, which means that he has a top 10 chip stack heading into Day 4 on Tuesday. James Carroll, who finished the day as the tournament chip leader, finished with around 803k in chips.
Of the 7,319 players that turned out for the 2010 main event, approximately 1,240 are still alive after three full days of play. The top 747 spots will pay, which means that we should hit the money sometime on Day 4.
Some of the other notable names who finished with above average stacks on Day 3 were:
Johnny Lodden, 656k
Alexander Kostritsyn, 534k
Cole South, 479k
Scott Clements, 460k
Robert Mizrachi, 346k
Some of the notable names who hit the rail on Day 3:
Of the 1,240 players who are still alive in the main event, four are Mizrachi brothers.
Robert, Michael, Daniel and Eric Mizrachi are all still alive in the main event after three full days of play. Robert Mizrachi is in the best shape of them all heading into Day 4, as he managed to finish with around 346k in chips.
Good luck to everybody who is still alive in the main event..
