Now for a quick update on Wednesday's $3,000 event, still in progress. The bubble has burst, with Erik Seidel being the unfortunate 28th place finisher. The remaining players are guaranteed at least $4,385, and they will play down to the final 9 players tonight, time permitting.

Here are some of the players who are still in action: Kenna James, Scott Fischman, Isabelle Mercier, David Pham, Noah Boeken, Richard Tatalovich, and Juha Helppi. Tune into tomorrow at 3:00 pm PST for complete coverage of all the final table action.


Ken Lennaard Wins the $2,500 No-Limit Event ($241,920)

Severely short-stacks, Julian Studley is eliminated in second place after a tough battle, earning $133,670. Ken Lennaard is the winner of the $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em event, earning $241,920.

15-Minute Break; Blinds Increasing to $8,000-$16,000 ($3,000 ante)

Before the final two players play a single hand, they take their 15-minute break before the blinds increase to $8,000-$16,000, with a $3,000 ante. Here are the official chip counts:

1. Ken Lenaard - $1,149,000
2. Julian Studley - $242,000


Robert Mizrachi Eliminated in 3rd Place ($68,835)

Robert Mizrachi pushes all in preflop with A-6 suited, and he's called by chip leader Ken Lenaard with Q-10 offsuit. Mizrachi stays in the lead on a flop of 9-9-5, and the 4 on the turn leaves Lenaard with six outs, or else Mizrachi will double up. The river is a 10, and Robert Mizrachi is eliminated in third place, earning $68,835.

Paul Nguyen Eliminated in 4th Place ($38,180)

Ken Lenaard pushes all in on a flop of 10h-9c-6s, and he's called by Paul Nguyen. Lenaard shows Kc-Qs for a gut-shot straight draw, while Nguyen has Qd-Jd for an open-ended straight draw with no live overcards. (A jack makes Lenaard a straight, and a queen gives Lenaard a pair with a higher kicker.) The river is the 7c, and Nguyen needs an eight or a jack to stay alive. The river is the 3d, and Paul Nguyen is eliminated in fourth place, earning $38,180.

Four Patient Players

The four remaining players continue to battle cautiously, desperate not to overextend their betting as they reach serious prize money. They've been playing four-handed for two hours now. Here are their approximate chip counts, followed by the top four payouts:

1. Ken Lenaard - $400,000 (seat 3)
2. Paul Nguyen - $375,000 (seat 1)
3. Robert Mizrachi - $365,000 (seat 5)
4. Julian Studley - $220,000 (seat 6)

Prize Payouts:

1st - $241,920
2nd - $133,670
3rd - $66,835
4th - $38,180


Blinds Increase to $6,000-$12,000 ($2,000 ante)

The blinds increase to $6,000-$12,000, with a $2,000 ante. The final four players refuse to die, playing for first place and a $241,920 prize.

Ken Lenaard Doubles Up Through Paul Nguyen

Paul Nguyen pushes all in on the river, with the board showing 7c-3h-2h-4d-7h, and Ken Lenaard takes a few moments to think before he calls the extra $165,000 with J-7 (trips). Nguyen was pushing with A-4, hoping to knock Lenaard off his hand. Lenaard doubles up in chips to about $450,000. Here are the rough chip counts after the hand:

1. Ken Lenaard - $450,000
2. Julian Studley - $350,000
3. Paul Nguyen - $300,000
4. Robert Mizrachi - $260,000


Julian Studley Doubles Up Through Robert Mizrachi; Rough Chip Counts

Julian Studley is all in preflop with A-K against Robert Mizrachi's A-Q. The board comes 9-7-2-10-3, and Studley doubles up in chips. Mizrachi has been hemorrhaging chips lately, but he's still got enough to play strong. The psychological hit might be worse than the drop in chips. This is roughly where they stand:

1. Paul Nguyen - $475,000
2. Julian Studley - $350,000
3. Robert Mizrachi - $300,000
4. Ken Lenaard - $205,000
