Friday July 1,2011 : Event 48: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em was down to just 4 players in the wee small hours of Friday morning Vegas time, with Athanasios Polychronopoulos leading at level 30 (the last for the day) on 4,700,000, well ahead of poker ace Yevgeniy Timoshenko on 2,730,000 and followed by Simon Charette (2,350,000) and Peter Ippolito (2,230,000).
 
The third and hopefully last day of the event started Thursday afternoon with 30 players remaining from an original field of 2,713. Sebastian Winkler had the chip lead, chased by Matt Stout and with Yevgeniy Timoshenko and Mike DeMichele some way back in the chip list but still dangerous.
 
The game could well run on to yet another extra day of action.
