WSOP 2013: Team Pros, Team Online, hundreds more head to Day 3

For the past five days, the WSOP house has been one that's divided. With Day 1A, 1B, 1C, 2A/B, and 2C, it's often felt like a bad game of Wheel of Fortune. At no point have all the 2013 World Series of Poker players been in the same building at the same time.

That ends Thursday as the remaining players from the three Day 1s and two Day 2 flights return here to meet for the first time. At stake? Well, only the chance to play for poker's biggest prize.

Only a couple thousand of the 6,352 players are still in action, and they're all in for another ten hours of poker tomorrow. Their prize for surviving that? Nothing. Only people who make it to Friday will have a chance to get paid.

PokerStars will be well represented in the Day 3 field. Here's who we'll be tracking on Day 3: Mikhail Shalamov, Liv Boeree, Ivan Demidov, Adrienne Rowsome, Matthias De Meulder, Isaac Haxton, Theo Jorgensen, Jake Cody, Humberto Brenes, Marcel Luske, Bertrand Grospellier, Angel Guillen, and Gabe Nassif. We'll update their chip counts on the PokerStars WSOP players page when we get them overnight.

For almost every person who is walking out of here happy tonight, there are just as many who are already gone. Among them are several members of Team PokerStars Pro and Team Online, including Daniel Negreanu, Jose Barbero, Leo Fernandez, Jason Mercier, Randy Lew, Sebastian Ruthenberg, Vanessa Selbst, and Julien Brécard.
