2008 PCA: Day 3 players to see the money
One hundred fifty-three players. That's how many we'll see stagger into the Atlantis Grand Ballroom this morning.
Only 120 of those players will walk out of here with anything resembling a smile on their face.
Today, Day 3 of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, will see us hit the money bubble. Over the course of the next several hours, the remaining players will play down to 40 seats before breaking for the day.
We'll be starting at Level 13 today at 2,000/4,000/400 blinds. The average stack going into play today is around 150,000, well enough to give these players some breathing room as they play.
As mentioned last night, Eric "Rizen" Lynch will start the day with the chip lead, 526,900. Team PokerStars Pro Betrand "ElkY" Grospellier sits in second place at 435,000. Full chip counts coming into Day 3 can be found HERE.
Today is also the kickoff of the PokerStars World Championship of Battleship Poker, a $2,000 live heads-up competition, played on PokerStars software.
Keep it here all day long for full coverage.
