ANZPT Perth Day 3: Level 21 (blinds 10,000-20,000, ante 3,000)

The final table is set!

That concludes our live coverage of Day 3 of the ANZPT Perth Main Event. We have our final table of nine decided as they currently bag their chips, fill out some bios sheets and redraw for tomorrow's final table.

Jon Curtis is likely to be in front but we'll have confirmations of chip counts, redraw and profiles of our final tablists for you a little later this evening.

7:15pm: Alderson bubbles the final table

The final table bubble has burst as our official ANZPT Perth final table of nine has now been set in stone.

Daryl Alderson was the unlucky one to miss out after he couldn't recover from losing a big race towards the end of the previous level. He shoved his short stack from late position with J♠T♦ but Jon Curtis woke up with a monstrous Q♠Q♥ in the small blind and made the call.

Alderson flopped a pair but couldn't improve further as the board finished up J♥2♥4♠7♦3♠. Alderson is out in 10th place as Curtis will now be the likely chip leader.

7:10pm: Labouchardiere departs, one more to go!

Immediately after the break, Tom Labouchardiere moved his short stack into the middle with 4♣4♠. It was around ten big blinds and David Lloyd didn't hesitate in making the call with A♣K♠.

The board ran out A♦J♠7♠7♦5♣ to pair the ace and send Labouchardiere to the cashier to collect $4,340 for a fine tournament.


Tom Labouchardiere is out in 11th place, with one more elimination until our final table is set

7:05pm: Play resumes

The final eleven players are back in action with two more eliminations required until our ANZPT final table is set and we are done for the day.

Jon Curtis has snuck back in front, ahead of Didier Guerin and Matthew Carlsson, while Daryl Alderson, Paul Satzke and Tom Labouchardiere are the shorties to watch.
