World Poker Tour Championship: Down to 19 players entering Sunday

After 5 grueling levels of play, we are down to the final 19 players. Play will resume at 12 PM PDT Sunday.

Bluff Magazine has been providing live updates from the World Poker Tour Championship, taking place at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.

Three more players with substantial payout odds to win have been eliminated from last night's play. They included Ross Boatman (who would have paid 26 to 1) and Matt Lefkowitz at 21.5 to 1 odds. Freddy Deeb was also sent home (listed with 12.5 to 1 odds at Pinnacle Sports entering this big event).

Coming into Sunday and representing Miami, Florida, Vanessa Rousso came in with approximately 880K in her stack. She came over the top of Patrik Antonius' raise and he made the call. He showed A-K, and Rousso turned over T-T. Antonius caught no help and Rousso stacked up near 2M. Rousso was also featured last week on "Calvin Ayre's Wild Card Poker".

After coming into the day with a huge chip stack, Patrik Antonius continued his sharp play throughout most of the day. Then he lost a 2.8M pot to James Van Alstyne when his Q-Q were cracked by K-T, taking him down to 1.6M. Since then he has dropped a few more pots, including the A-K v. T-T hand against Vanessa Rousso, and he now finds himself between a rock and a hard place. He certainly has the talent to pull off an amazing comeback, but with the blinds and antes this high it will be a tough challenge.

James Van Alstyne was listed with payout odds of 20 to 1 at Pinnacle Sports entering the World Poker Tour Championship.

Meanwhile, Carlos Zambrano has been on a tear today - his chips are stacked fifty high and two rows deep. He just took out Luis Pires when his 6-6 held up against Pires' Q-5. Pires took home $87,875 for his 22nd place finish.
