WSOP $50,000 players championship Arieh Rising, Leads After Day 3

Day 3 of the $50,000 Poker Players Championship is in the books, and our chip leader is Josh Arieh with 1,819,000 chips.

At the start of the day there were 74 runners, and after five more levels of play only 29 remain. We lost a handful of notables today including Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier, Greg Mueller, Erick Lindgren, Chad Brown, Eugene Katchalov, Justin Smith and Abe Mosseri.

Arieh isn not the only player over a million chips. Brian Rast (1,633,000), George Lind (1,304,000), Vladimir Shchemelev (1,181,000), Phil Hellmuth (1,174,000), and Scott Seiver (1,137,000) are all over seven figures. Read more
