Last night, there was some confusion in relayed information from the tournament staff to the players about the start time for Day 3. The confusion was between 1 p.m. or 2 p.m. While the start time was scheduled for 1 p.m., the tournament staff is now trying to contact a couple of the missing players who may have been told incorrect information and are not here yet.
Normally, it is the players' responsibility to know the start time for their events, but when misinformed, the tournament staff will do what it can to rectify the situation, which means delaying the start and getting a hold of the absent players. The cards should be in the air shortly.

Welcome back for Day 3 of Event #14: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em here at the 2013 World Series of Poker. With just 14 players left from the original 1,819 that began, today will be the culmination of a great event and the crowning of another gold bracelet winner.
Leading the way is Hiren "Sunny" Patel with 1.51 million in chips. The only other player joining him in the seven-figure club is Jonathan Taylor with 1.222 million. Another notables still remaining are Russell Crane, Blake Bohn and Chris Hunichen.
Each of the remaining 14 competitors is guaranteed $20,504 at minimum, but every single one of these players will be gunning for the big, bad $454,424 first-place prize that's up for grabs. Once play gets down to a 10-handed affair, the players will combine at one table.
The cards are set to be in the air at 1 p.m. local time in Las Vegas, so get ready for some action!
