Day 3 of the UK & Ireland Poker Tour Dublin Main Event provided all of the thrilling action that was expected and ended up with two former winners of the event making the final table. Max Silver and Joeri Zandvliet have shown in previous events here that they have what it takes to win. Silver has now in fact made the final table here for the 3rd time in just four years.
Despite both champions winning a seat on the final table it is local player Kevin Killeen that will start the day with the chip lead. He amassed 3,505,000 on Day 3 giving himself around an 800k advantage over Robert Sturman in 2nd place.
Max Silver is right behind Sturman on 2,545,000 and will be many peoples favourite to take down this event.
Final Table of UKIPT Dublin for the third time in 4 attempts. Got 2.545m for 3/8 tomorrow. Joeri is right here with me
