Jeff Kimber cashes at the WSOP main event along with 14 other Team Ladbrokes players. He is the top Brit in the tournament and 19th in the rankings with 665,000 chips.

I am really pleased to have made it through this far through such a massive field, but realise just like everyone else still in the tournament that we're long way off from the final table. The way I see it, I'll take one day at a time and see how I get on, which is how I've approached the tournament since day one.

Team Ladbrokes makes the cash in day three at the 2008 WSOP main event. Day three ends at last and after over 30 hours of play, fifteen Ladbrokes Poker players are among the great and the good to have made it through a field of nearly 7000 players to make the cash. Most notably is Jeff Kimber a Team Ladbrokes Sponsored player, winner of the GUKPT Walsall and World Heads Up Champion who at close of play today was 19th out of 479 remaining players with a healthy stack of 665,000 chips.

Edward Ihre MD of Ladbrokes Poker commented: "We brought 120 players to Las Vegas to play in the World Series of Poker with a view to at least one making the final table. At this point in time we are very much on target to achieve this. Jeff is a great player as his track record shows and of course all of Team Ladbrokes is very proud of his achievement thus far. We know that there is a very long road ahead until the final table, but the camaraderie and team spirit amongst fellow Ladbrokes Poker players mean that JaffaCake wont be short of railers to boost his morale and see him through the next couple of days play."

Jeff 'JaffaCake' Kimber commented: "I am really pleased to have made it through this far through such a massive field, but realise just like everyone else still in the tournament that we're long way off from the final table. The way I see it, I'll take one day at a time and see how I get on, which is how I've approached the tournament since day one."

All players still remaining in the tournament are guaranteed a payout of at least $25,090, with a first prize of $9,119517.

Edward said: "There's a lot to play for Team Ladbrokes members, in addition to the WSOP prize payouts, we're offering a generous bonus to any of our players that finish in 100th position or above."
