Huge $1k NLHE field pared down to 45 hopefuls

Only two tournaments were in action on the Fourth of July at the 2011 WSOP; one being the $50k Players Championship, and the other the final, and largest, $1k NLHE of the 2011 WWSOP.

What turned out to be the second largest $1k No Limit Holdem tournament in World Series of Poker history –attracting 4,576 entrants over the course of the two starting days– is looking like a candidate for the Hard-Stop Rule as 45 players remain heading into Day 3 of the tournament –the Hard Stop Rule has been affecting most tournaments with 35 or more players heading into the final day.

Amongst the remaining players in the field are quite a few big names for a $1k NLHE tournament including Max Lykov and Pierre Neauville. All of the remaining players are deep into the money –guaranteed at least $13k—but have their eyes set on the nearly $650k first-place prize-money.

Here is a look at the top 10 chip counts heading into what is supposed to be the final day of the event:

1. Anibal Andres – 799,000

2. Stanislav Alekhin – 786,000

3. Terrance Eishens – 709,000

4. Christopher Chatman – 524,000

5. Matthew LaGarde – 517,000

6. Jeffrey Manza – 503,000

7. Nahabedian Raffi – 477,000

8. Jason Bigelow – 476,000

9. Mario Doria – 454,000

10. Aaron Overton – 453,000
