We started with just 79 players remaining and plans to play down beyond the money bubble of 36 and onto the final 27. And while it appeared it could take a here.
Played wrapped soon after Layne's latest move with Smith ($946k) still holding the lead followed closely by Makhija ($842k) and Flack ($807k).
Markholt, Nguyen, a resurgent Allen Cunningham and Najaryan also have a shot at this thing heading into Day 4.
Marco Johnson and John Phan are still in the hunt. Plus, Maria Ho, the last woman standing at the 2007 WSOP, looked like she might fall short of the final 27 here, but she still retains a shot at Legends glory after doubling twice in the late stages of the day to move on to Day 4.
We'll be back with more from The Bike tomorrow as 27 is magically turned into six in mere minutes by a sick series of aces over kings debacles and Thursday's final table is set. You are welcome to join us right here on PokerListings.com beginning at 2 p.m. PST as the most ballingest team in poker attempts to find out which six of these degenerate gamblers will have a shot to become the next legend of poker.
