The Day 3 of the World Series of Poker Main Event has come to an end and we are very close to the money. A total of 746 players are left out of the 6,683 players who has participated in the tournament and with money for 693 players we are only 53 places away from the first cashes, which gives players $18,406.
Andrew Liporace is the chipleader going into day 4 of the main event, having 1,128,000 in chips, closely followed by Mehrdad Yousefzadeh with 1,124,000 in chips. No player is massively ahead though, as the top players are all very close and the gaps down to the ones below them are still relatively small, something that will not continue in the coming days.
Guys like Dan Smith, Kane Kalas, Brian Townsend, Phil Ivey, Scott Palmer, Jeff Madsen and Jesper Hougaard are all still in the tournament, battling for the $10 million first prize. With day 4 starting in a few hours, it will be interesting to see if any of the big names will be able to move on to day 5 and potentially all the way to the November Nine final table.
