Event 38: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em entered its third day Friday with 23 players still active and New Jersey player Perry Lin in the lead, but with aces like Melanie Weisner (who had four cashes this year already), Brits Paul Nash and Jonathan Spinks, and former bracelet winner Hoai Pham still active.
Pham was among the early casualties of day 3, whilst 25-year-old Weisner lasted until 14th position before being bundled out by Arkadiy Tsinis for her fifth WSOP cash this year.
Daniel Aldridge's elimination set up a final table of nine Friday night that included Perry Lin (still in the lead) Pim de Goede, Arkadiy Tsinis, Michael Blanovsky, Ryan Laplante, Christopher Homan, Paul Nash, Randolph Lanosga and David Rounick.
Heading into midnight Friday this initially 2,192 player event was down to the heads up between Arkadiy Tsinis and Michael Blanovsky, with the former holding an almost 3 to 1 lead at level 30 and the end in sight after over 2 hours of heads up action.
