WSOP Daily – Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

By Ian Hiaring, Rakeback.com Poker News Staff Writer

We’re ready to head into Day 3 of the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event. This will be the first day that all remaining entrants will be in the house. No more Days Xa or Xb. This is it…the home stretch of the Main Event.

There are 1,864 players remaining from the 6,865 that started the tournament. The plan for Thursday’s Day 3 is to play four more 120 minute levels.

Our chip leader through the first two days is Ben Lamb, who’s had made quite an impression throughout the 2011 WSOP. Lamb currently sits 2nd on the 2011 WSOP Player of the Year leaderboard and has won one bracelet at the Rio this summer already. Lamb’s bracelet in the $10k PLO Championship is certainly the highlight of his WSOP so far, but he’s added a second place finish in a $3K PLO event and a final table appearance in the $50K Poker Players Championship.

Despite Lamb’s impressive performance, he still trails Phil Hellmuth in the 2011 WSOP Player of the Year race. Hellmuth’s run comes without that elusive 12th bracelet, but includes 2nd place finishes in three events, including the $50K Poker Players Championship.

It’s safe to say that Lamb has the upper hand so far in the Main Event with 551,600 chips. Hellmuth, on the other hand, is relatively short-stacked with 64,900 chips.

Here’s the top ten as we head into Day 3 on Thursday.

1 – 551,600 – Ben Lamb
2 – 542,200 – Kevin Saul
3 – 478,600 – Aleksandr Moxhnyakov
