Eric Kurtzman

Welcome back to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino and the 2014 World Series of Poker for Day 3 of Event #30: $1,500 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low!

Two days ago 588 players took to the felt to form a $793,800 prizepool, and now just 12 players remain with all eyes on the $190,538 first prize and WSOP gold bracelet.

Eric Kurtzman leads the final group into this last day after amassing an impressive 490,000-chip stack. Nipping at his heels however are Calvin Anderson (356,000), Sanjay Pandya (307,000), and Joe Tehan (285,000).

Six-time WSOP bracelet winner Ted Forrest is still in the mix and chasing his second bracelet for the series while cash-game specialist Melissa Burr will be eyeing her second final table of the series. 2007 Aussie Millions runner-up Jimmy Fricke is yet to taste WSOP gold, but after ending Day 1 as chip leader, and finishing sixth overall on Day 2, his confidence will be sky high as he makes a push for glory.
