Tuesday June 28, 2011 : Going into the early hours of Tuesday morning only three players were left contesting event 44: $2,500 Razz: Tommy Chen in the lead on 1,079,000, chased by Stephen Su (856,000), and Rep Porter (798,000).
 
The quartet had been among a third day starter field of 23 – the survivors of an original registration list of 363 – which reassembled mid-afternoon Monday to decide the winner in a tough competition that has seen a wealth of big name players bite the dust.
 
The casualty list for the third day included John Monnette, Victor Ramdin, Chad Brown, Robert Williamson III and David Sklansky.
 
Chen dominated then as he did just after midnight at level 25 and looks to be the favourite for the bracelet and the big money.
