The 2024 U.S. Poker Open continued at the PokerGO Studio from ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada with Event #3: $10,100 No-Limit Hold'em.

David Stamm bagged the chip lead and holds over 22% of the chips in play as seven players remain. Rodger Johnson, Dan Smith, Jesse Lonis, Dylan Linde, David Coleman, and Bill Klein round out the players who will return for the final day as play resumes at 12 p.m. PT on Thursday, April 11 with the delayed final table stream beginning at 2 p.m. PT on PokerGO.

The 84-entrant field created a prize pool of $840,000 and the top 12 finishers earned a piece of it. Sam Soverel was the unfortunate bubble boy when he got his stack of over 50 big blinds in with pocket jacks against the pocket queens of Smith and failed to improve. Among those to cash were Sam Laskowitz (12th), Victoria Livschitz (11th), Nick Schulman (10th), and Andrew Lichtenberger (9th).

Later in the night, Phil Hellmuth got his shorter stack in on a blind-versus-blind confrontation with ace-eight suited against Johnson's pocket sevens. Hellmuth failed to improve and was eliminated in eighth place as seven players converged on a single table. The final table exchanged chips around as Linde doubled and Stamm added to his lead through the end of Level 16, when the seven remaining players bagged to return for the streamed final table.

Event #2 winner Lonis currently sits atop the U.S. Poker Open leaderboard in the race to be crowned the U.S. Poker Open champion and receive the Golden Eagle Trophy and a $25,000 PGT Passport. He will have an opportunity to extend his lead, while Johnson has cashed in all three events thus far and could overtake Lonis depending on how the final table plays out. Linde and Klein picked up their second cash of the series, while Stamm, Smith, and Coleman all notched their first.

Each player has locked up $33,600 but all eyes will be on the $235,200 first-place prize, 235 PGT points, and Event #3 mini Golden Eagle trophy.
