Jonathan Kedj - 15th Place

Jonnie Kedj is our first elimination of the day. He pushed his stack in from the hijack seat and was called by Aleksandr Gofman in the small blind.

Kedj: {j-Clubs}{j-Spades}
Gofman: {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}

Kedj was looking good for an early double, and the flop of {5-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{2-Hearts} kept him in the lead, though it added the gutshot straight draw to Gofman's outs. The turn was the {5-Hearts} and changed nothing. But the river delivered the {3-Diamonds} and Gofman hit his straight, knocking out Kedj in 15th place for $18,583.

Day 3, the last day of this WSOP Event #31: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em, will get started at 1 p.m. today with 15 players returning to play for the $418,435 first-place prize and the WSOP gold bracelet that will mark the eventual champion's achievement.

When players rip open their bags today, Matt Stout will be pouring out the most chips. He is the only player who has crossed the million-chip mark this tournament, and he did so in the final hand of play on Day 2. He flopped top set on a board of {2-Spades}{4-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} and stacked Alessandro Bardaro who had jacks for an overpair. Stout will be sitting behind a tower of 1,130,000 when play begins today.

Aleksander Gofman isn't too far behind and will have the second-largest stack with 951,000, followed by Brett Shaffer with 812,000. Everyone else has less than 700K and will be looking to catch up.
