We have reached our unofficial table of ten and players are on a short break as they combine into one table.

Blake Barousse Eliminated in 12th Place ($20,556)

Blake Barousse - 12th Place
Blake Barousse - 12th Place

Robert Kuhn opened for 32,000 and Blake Barousse three-bet him to 104,000. Khun and Barousse had tangled in a pot a few minutes before where Khun got the better of it taking the pot down with a turn bet.

Ken Weinstein on the button gave it some serious thought but made the fold as did the blinds.

Kuhn then announced all in and was quickly called by Barousse and the cards were on their backs.

Kuhn {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

Barousse {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}

The board ran out {7-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{3-Spades}

Kuhn spiked his king on the flop, he had his opponent covered and Barousse was the first to leave the tables today.

Open Shoving Season

No messing about from some players. We have already seen all ins from Geoffrey Mooney, Blake Barousse and Jason Paster. So far no one has looked them up.

Cartwright and Chanthabouasy Tangle Early

Kyle Cartwright opened from the button for 32,000 and Steve Chanthabouasy called from the small blind. On a flop of {10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{6-Spades} Chanthabouasy check-raised to 74,000 after a 34,000 bet from Cartwright. Cartwright made the call to see the {6-Hearts} on the turn.

Chanthabouasy bet 75,000 and Cartwright made the call. The river was the {4-Spades} and Chanthabouasy contemplated before eventually throwing out what appeared to be a value bet of 60,000. Cartwright made the call and tabled {9-Clubs}{9-Hearts} and Chanthabouasy showed {a-Hearts}{7-Hearts} for the busted flush and straight draws.

Cartwright took the pot and increased his chip lead.

Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino and the 2014 World Series of Poker for Day 3 of Event #4: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em.

Two days ago 2,224 players entered the field for their shot at a six-figure payday. After reaching the money on day one, 186 players returned to day two, assured a payout of at least $1,981.

Several notables made a deep run, but were not able to make the end of day two. David Peters (60th), Phil Collins (48th), Andrew Lichtenberger (45th), Jimmy Fricke (43rd), Russell Thomas (41st), Thayer Rasmussen (39th), Mark Radoja (29th), Michael Katz (14th) and Jeff Gross (13th) all made nice runs but would see their hopes for the win dashed.

Kyle Cartwright leads the Final 12 with 973,000 and Daniel Dizenzo is not far behind at 912,000. Former November Niner Ylon Schwartz has played nice and steady and goes into day three stacked at 832,000, good for third.

The twelve remaining players will be playing down to a winner today and are gunning for the coveted bracelet and a first place prize of $360,435.

Play will resume at 1:00pm Vegas time and we will be reporting the action live, including hand for hand action once we reach the final table of nine.
