(pokernews.com) – Only one bracelet was awarded on Day 28 of the 2015 World Series of Poker, two new events kick off, and the Extended Play tournament reached its final table while Day 3 of the $50,000 Poker Players’ Championship saw the field reduced to the final 19.
Matthew Ashton from Liverpool, United Kingdom sits in second place after three long days of poker action with 19 players remaining in the $50,000 Players Championship, the event he managed to win just two years ago. A total of 12 players will cash in this event and currently it’s last year’s fourth-place finisher Abe Mosseri who leads the way with 1,201,000.
