WSOP Event #24 $1.5K HORSE Day 3
In another case of extra chips forcing an event into an extra day, three HORSE players will be returning to play out for the bracelet on Day 4. 31 started Day 3, including Esther Taylor-Brady of Washington who placed 25th, Ian Johns of Washington, who finished in 21st place, for $6.4K, his third and largest (so far) cash of this summer. Oregon’s Jeffrey Mitseff started in 8th position in chips and finished the tournament in 8th place—the first player to exit the official final table—for a $20K cash.

The first entry day of this year’s edition of the Monster Stack is in the bags. More than three thousand players took their shot (their only shot, no re-entry) on Friday, with 825 making it to the end of the day. 51 PNW players made it through, with seven of those in the top 50 for the day. Rounding out that group in 50th place was Jacqueline Burkhardt, with 123,500 chips.

Among the others from Oregon, Pok Kim (or Kim Pok, if you prefer), who not only cashed in this event last year but final-tabled a $1K in 2014; Joe Brandenburg, who’s got the experience from being heads-up for a bracelet; and Final Table’s Heath Bloodgood. Also notable down near the bottom of the chip counts is Mike Johnson, the former co-host of the 2+2 PokerCast.
Day 1B has already started. Get to your seats before they start gathering up stacks at the end of Level 3!
Last break of the night. 11k. Spending break crawling under tables of big stacks for possible chips dropped on the floor. #notsomonsterstack
