After three days of action, one of the preeminent stops on the World Poker Tour, The Legends of Poker Main Event at the Bicycle Casino, is down to just three tables featuring seven players each. The tournament began with two Day 1 starting flights that saw a total of 757 entrants thanks to the 116 players who took advantage of the multi-entry format that allowed players who were eliminated on Day 1a to re-enter on Day 1b (players were also allowed to forfeit their stack at the end of Day 1a as well).

Even though the remaining 21 players may not feature any of poker’s biggest names, the field does still contain a number of really talented players, whose names will definitely be recognizable to the poker enthusiasts out there. Amongst the remaining players are James Carroll, Will Failla, Shawn Buchanan, 2011 WSOP bracelet winner and $50k Players Championship final table participant Owais Ahmed, and Ray Henson, as well as Dan Heimiller and Christina Lindley, both of who are nursing short-stacks heading into Day 4.

Here is a look a t the top 10 chip counts amongst the 21 remaining players in the tournament:

1. Jeff Vertes — 2,712,000

2. James Carroll — 1,900,000

3. David Daneshgar — 1,850,000

4. Joshua Pollock — 1,645,000

5. Mike Eskandari — 1,597,000

6. Ken Aldridge — 1,541,000

7. Will Failla — 1,450,000
