Day 3 at the World Poker Tour $3,500 no-limit hold’em championship at the Borgata Poker Open once again saw a huge chunk of the remaining field hit the rail. Yesterday, over 500 players made their exit to take the field down to 169, and today play charged right through the money bubble when 100 players remained and kept up a quick pace down to the final 27 players. Some big names that fell just short of the money included Michael Binger, Jonathan Little, Lee Childs, Joe Simmons, and Bill Gazes. One big name that remains in the hunt at the top of the pack is Ray Henson (pictured right) . He ended the night in third chip position with 1,915,000. Yanick Brodeur ended the night with just over 3 million to pace the field.
