Yes, Vitor Coelho leads the WPT Jacksonville event by a large margin going into Day 3. Stacked at 945,000, he’s math math math far ahead of his nearest competitor, Conner Drinan (605,000).
But what we–and really the rest of the poker world is focused on–isn’t whether or not Vitor can ride his big stack to his first World Poker Tour title. No, it’s whether the man the myth the legend, Black Phil Ivey, Big Sldick, the one and only Dwyte Pilgrim can pull through and win his second.
Pilgrim enters Day 3 stacked slightly above the chip average with 284,000. Can he shock the world twice?
With 42 players remaining (40 get paid), other notables still in the field include Allie Prescott (441,500), Hawaiian hottie Lisa Hamilton, a woman (155,500), Brandon Steven (151,000), and of course, Zoltan Czinnkota (39,000).
