'Tight' is the best way to describe three-handed standings after three hours

After 203 hands of no limit hold’em poker, the three-way action in the Main Event is one of tightest on record.

Greg Merson leads with 76 million in chips, down from the 83 million when he entered play. At one point, Merson had 105 million in chips.

Jesse Sylvia battled back from several crippling hands to 62.5 million. Jake Balsiger, who briefly held second place, was third with almost 60 million in chips.

Unless something crazy happens, it’s going to be a long night.
