Smith, Ivey, Bloch Lead WSOPC in New Orleans

Harrahs_neworleans Poker is back in the Big Easy.  And some of the biggest guns have the biggest stacks at the WSOP Circuit championship at Harrah's. 

Over 160 players entered the event, and only 57 remain.  Leading them all is WPT Player of the Year (and this week's guest on ESPN's Poker Edge radio show) Gavin Smith.  Smith is stacked at 106,900. 

A few places back, a trio of poker's best tournament players lurk. Phil Ivey, who T.J. Cloutier conceded has a chance to be the best poker player of all-time, is fourth with 71,600 in chips. Fifth overall is Hoyt Corkins with 69,775. And the cerebral Andy Bloch sits sixth overall with 68,500.
