WPT Hollywood Poker Open day 3 recap

Posted by Steve Ruddock on Mar 24, 2010 Posted in Poker News | No Comments »

The first ever World Poker Tour event in Indiana has played down to just 15 competitors after three days of action. Among the players still in contention for the title are the 2001 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion, Carlos Mortensen, as well as online poker pro Eric Lynch, better known as ‘Rizen’ in the online poker world.

If he makes the final table, Mortensen will be looking to capture his 1st WPT title in 5 chances. The only WPT champion remaining in the field is poker pro Shawn Buchanan, who won the 2007 Mandalay Bay Poker Championship, and has also captured a WCOOP event in the online poker world.

Day 4 of the tournament will see the remaining 15 players play down to the televised final table of 6 players. The money bubble will also burst tomorrow, as only 12 players will be paid for their efforts.

The winner of the event will walk away with a hefty $391,212 and a WPT title.
