Joe Ebanks is looking to close on Day 4.

Ten levels of poker were not enough to finish Event #46: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em / Six Handed Championship here on Day 3, so we will return tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. PDT for one final day.

Joe Ebanks and Chris Moorman are currently heads up for the bracelet and $1,158,481. Here's how the stacks look:


We started this afternoon with 22 of the best short-handed poker players in the world, but as the hours passed, we lost great names like David Benefield, Chris Klodnicki, Greg Dyer, and the current 2011 World Series of Poker Player of the Year leader; Ben "Benba" Lamb.
