Welcome to PokerNews' Day 3 coverage of Event #63: $1,500 Six-Handed 10-Game Mix.

After 20 one-hour levels, the starting field of 445 entries has been whittled down to just nine players, each with hopes of capturing a coveted World Series of Poker gold bracelet, as well as the first-place prize of $153,220. A talented group remains and leading the way is Jan Suchanek with 494,000. While this only marks Suchanek's sixth career WSOP cash, the Kiwi boasts a plethora of results from down under the past few years.

Second in chips is Bryn Kenney with 298,500. Kenney, who held the chip lead after Day 1, has already made two final tables this summer and this marks his 26th career WSOP cash. Will he capture that elusive first bracelet? Mixed-game veteran Andrey Zaichenko (259,000) and bracelet-winner Randy Ohel (212,500) sit third and fourth in chips, respectively.
