Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Patrik Antonius Survive Day 3 of WSOP 2011

Among the big name survivors after Day 3 of the 2011 World Series of Poker were Phil Hellmuth and Daniel Negreanu.  853 remained after Day 3.

The Canadian, Negreanu, had a chip count by day’s end that fell just below the average of 240,000.   Hellmuth is lucky to have gotten this far after sleeping in the first day of play.  He had to be awoken by hotel security.

Meanwhile, Ben Lamb has been on fire.  After leading in chips earlier in the week, he had fallen a bit down the ranks only to lead again by the end of Day 3.
