I have been following the WSOP and I missed this, thanks pax.
Almira Skripchenko made a final table at one of the earlier events.

Looks like he didn't make it to day 3. Any other Chess players surviving?

Ivo Donev is a inactive Austrian IM, who made it too day 3 with 116500. FM Ylon Schwartz and former SA junior player Rayan Nathan didn't. I haven't seen 2007 WSOPE main event runner up John Tabatabai's name mentioned but he also has a FIDE rating of 2048 for Wales.
One non chess player who has survived so far is Shane Warne, as well as Joe Hachem.
