After 10 hours of play, twelve players advanced to Day 3 of Event #6: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em Shootout. The most well-known of the bunch is Josh Arieh, two-time bracelet winner and former third-place finisher in the Main Event, who has over $6 million in live cashes.
Arieh isn't the only poker millionaire to win his table today, though. Fellow bracelet winners Shawn Busse ($1 million in cashes) and Alex Bolotin ($2.2 million) also advanced, as did well-respected players like Dimitar Danchev ($3.2 million) and Jared Jaffee ($1.6 million). The final 12 will draw seats into two tables of six, combining when 10 players remain. Everyone brings 346,000 to 361,000 into Day 3, with variance due to imbalances in Day 1 tables.
A slew of notable players who failed to take down their tables today: Josh Pollock, Greg Merson, Dutch Boyd, Jordan Cristos, Steve Gross, Christian Harder, Isaac Baron, Mike Matusow, Eugene Katchalov, Jon Aguiar, Joseph Cheong, David "Bakes" Baker, Shannon Shorr, and Allen "Chainsaw" Kessler.
Players will resume the tournament at 1 p.m. tomorrow, so be sure to tune back in to PokerNews for the conclusion of Event #6.
