Can Quinn Do Scotty Nguyen In?

On the heels of a grueling 90+ hour, eight-day slugfest that capped off a six-week card playing bonanza known as the World Series of Poker, the Bellagio decided, "You know what?  Let's host another $10k buy-in tournament two days after the Main Event wraps!"

Gotta love the Bellagio.  Got to.

Going into Day 3 of the Bellagio Challenge Cup, the field has whittled down from 98 players to 9.  Big names such as Phil Ivey, Scott Fischman, Cyndy Violette, T.J. Cloutier, Erik Seidel, and 2005 WSOP Player of the Year Allen Cunningham all busted out.

But there's still plenty of wattage at the final table today.  2005 bracelet winner Quinn Do has been at or near the chip lead for most of Day 2.  He's stacked with 494,000.  Scotty Nguyen is second with 377,000.  Nguyen is surely throwing out more per capita "babies" then you'd hear during any 10 minute stretch of Swingers.

The rest of the final table includes: Annon Filippi - 362,100,  Sam Grizzle (best remembered for his verbal sparring with Hellmuth during the 2003 WSOP) - 214,200, Card Player magazine's Jeff Shulman - 190,300, Mimi Tran - 146,900,  Tobey Maguire (no shit) - 68,500,  Fuat Can - 47,900, and Chad Layne - 40,800.
