Shawn Buchanan Still Leading WPT Championship

Shawn Buchanan continued his dominant run at the WPT Championship, ending Day 3 as chip leader, stacked at 1,841,000.

More interesting though is that he’s followed by an absolute out-of-nowhere Heather Sue Mercer, a woman, with 1,364,000. Mercer has a bunch of cashes at the Borgata back in 2008 and that’s about it. Other than that, wtf. BJ?

Plenty of notables among the 35 remaining, including but certainly not limited to Matt Stout (919,500), Billy Baxter (887,500), Faraz Jaka (856,000), Phil Hellmuth (806,500), David Williams (757,000), David Benyamine (731,000), Carlos Mortensen (586,000), Scotty Nguyen (569,500), and last year’s champ, Yevgeniy Timoshenko (350,000).

Get full chip counts here.

    A quick google search also turns up that Heather Sue Mercer sued Duke University for discrimination in their treatment of her in her participating as the football team’s placekicker.

    Kind of interesting.
