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.

Russian Aleksandr Mozhnyakov was the third biggest chip leader.  While not a big name on the circuit, Mozhnyakov needs to be monitored carefully as he has so far managed to cash out in four events at this year’s World Series of Poker. 

Big name Finnish player Patrik Antonius continued to hover around the top 20, sitting comfortably in the number 12 position among the chip leaders.

The Simpsons co-creator Sam Simon remained among the top 25 chip leaders by day’s end. 

Other notable pros who survived the day include Bellande, Sebastian Ruthenberg, Peter Jetten, Sami Kelopuro, Brian Devonshire, J.P. Kelly, Kevin Saul, David Sands, Darus Suharto, Freddy Deeb, Sorel Mizzi, Adam Junglen, Vanessa Rousso and Lee Childs. and one time Bookmaker Poker representative and Sopranos star Robert Iler (A.J.).
