A murderer’s row-esque lineup will reconvene at the Rio poker tables on Wednesday to determine a winner in the $5k 6-handed PLO tournament at the 2011 World Series of Poker. Amongst the remaining players you will find a mix of well-known poker legends, online phenoms, and big name pros including Jason Mercier, Mike “Timex” McDonald, David “Devilfish” Ulliott, Jared “harrington25” Bleznick, David Chui, Peter Jetten, and Chris “moorman1” Moorman.

However all of those players are looking up at Greg Brooks who will enter the final day of the tournament with a substantial chip-lead of nearly 1.3 million; his nearest competitor, David Chui, has around 900k chips.

On the line Wednesday is not only the WSOP gold bracelet, but also one of the larger first-place prizes awarded at the 2011 WSOP, a massive $619,575.

Here is a look at the chip counts for the remaining 15 players heading into Day 3 of the $5k PLO tournament:

1. Gregory Brooks – 1,294,000

2. David Chiu – 891,000
