On a busy day of tournament action across the globe, we just not so long ago saw the end of Day 3 at the World Poker Tour Borgata Winter Poker Open, with there being a field of 160 players returning to the action. However, by the time the day had ended we were left with just 28 that would be heading into Day 4 in an attempt to make it to the final table.
The player who is currently at the top of the leader board is Yung Hwang, after he successfully built a healthy lead over his opponents with a total of 3,039,000. That’s just over 400k ahead of Jeremy Druckman with 2,598,000 and another 300k ahead of Sam Taylor in 3rd with 2,390,000.
Apart from the top three, there are some other big names that are still in contention with Joe Serock, Matt Salsberg and Jamie Kerstetter.
It is the top 100 finishers that are to be paid in this event which meant that we witnessed the bubble today. However, once we got down to hand to hand play on the tables in the process of finding that bubble boy, it took a good two hours before he was finally revealed. The unlucky player on this occasion being Paul Volpe who busted out in 101st place, and he was the last player to go home with nothing.
Amongst the 132 that were eliminated were a whole load of big name players that would have been hoping to progress much further in this event. The players eliminated without a cash included Christian Harder, Eric Seigel, Mohsin Charania, Jason Koon and Kenny Nguyen.
Amongst the players that did at least make a cash but were eliminated by the time the day had ended we had Ana Marquez, Matt Glantz, Matthew Burnitz, Ragi Raghaven, Allen Kessler and Matt Matros.
Each of the survivors will now be coming back tomorrow at 12pm ET to try and get onto that very last table of just six players for the final table on Saturday.
