Most eyes will now be on the World Series of Poker Main Event which kicked off last night, and rightly so, yet there are still a couple of other bracelets that were up for grabs on Day 40 of the WSOP. One of those was handed out whilst the other is all set to be won tomorrow.
Event #62 – $1,111 ‘Little One For One Drop’ Day 3 – Duong Leads Final 9
Day 3 of this popular charitable event saw the field of more than 100 players dramatically cut down to just the final nine that will return tomorrow. Leading the chip counts come the end of the day was Jackduyph Duong though he is not too far ahead of Eric Baldwin with each holding 3.18 and 3.14 million respectively.
Of those that failed to progress any further in the event included James Woods, David Peredes and Brett Shaffer, who will all now likely try their hand in the Main Event.
