Hopes that Scott Montgomery might achieve a second bracelet at this year’s World Series of Poker are diminishing following his bust out of event 47, one of the popular $1,000 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em competitions, which reached a final table Tuesday night after three tough days.
 
3,128 players registered for the event, but that had been reduced to 35 survivors by the start of Day 3 play Tuesday afternoon with Manuel Davidian leading on 889 000, chased by Adam White,
 
After less than five levels, Davidian was eliminated in 10th spot to form the final table of nine by the close of play Tuesday night. Here are the finalists who will go into a fourth day:
