After two full days of play in Event #37 ($3,000 H.O.R.S.E.), only 25 of the original 478 entrants still remain.

One of those players is Phil Ivey, who managed to finish Day 2 near the top of the tournament leaderboard.

Ivey finished the day with 205k in chips, meaning that he will have the tournament’s seventh largest stack heading into the final day of play on Monday.

John Juanda, who finished Day 2 with the chip lead (393k), will be looking to win his fifth World Series of Poker bracelet.

There is plenty at stake for Phil Ivey as he enters the final day of yet another World Series of Poker event. Not only would Ivey tie Erik Seidel on the all-time bracelet list with a win in the $3k HORSE event, but he would also take home millions of dollars in prop bet winnings, in addition to the $329,840 first place prize in the event. Phil has a number of very big bracelet bets in place and would stand to make a small fortune if he managed to take down this event today.

A number of very good players, including John Juanda, Jeff Lisandro, David Benyamine and Scott Seiver, are still alive in the tournament and will be looking to prevent Ivey from winning his third WSOP bracelet in the past two years.

The third and final day of the $3k HORSE event will get under way at 3 pm local time on Monday afternoon.
