Wsop Event 33 Day 3

Tuesday June 21,2011 : Event 33: $10,000 Stud 8 or Better World Championship is shaping up to be a magnet for the railbirds, with Phil Hellmuth in the final three players left in the early hours of Tuesday morning, looking for bracelet number 12 and a new record, but trailing leader Eric Rodawig by a million chips.
Veteran tournament player John Racener is the third survivor, almost a million behind Hellmuth in chips but still dangerous.
Just 18 players entered day three action on Monday, with Rodawig holding a strong lead and Hellmuth seventh in chips in a field that still included talent like David Benyamine,Ali Eslami, Antony Lellouche, Jon Turner, Joe Tehan, Phil Laak, Erik Seidel, Bill Chen and Cyndy Violette, none of whom survived a third day of hard, aggressive poker.
Going into level 27 in the early hours of Tuesday morning this competition is still wide open as the three talented survivors continue to fight for the bracelet and the big money.
