John Juanda (788k), Nick Schulman (611k), Andy Bloch (418k), Erik Seidel (373k) and Eli Elezra (336k)
"The Grinder" has had some well-documented financial issues as of late, so you have to figure that he will be particularly motivated to do well over the last two days of play.
Some of the names that hit the rail on Day 3: Doyle Brunson, Chris Ferguson and Phil Ivey.
