WSOP Main Event Day 3 – Liporace Edging Lead

Rio Las Vegas

Day 3 of the World Series of Poker Main Event has literally just come to an end after the 1,864 players that had done well enough to navigate this far, were reduced once more to the 746 players that will now return for Day 4.

The action on Day 4 was called to a halt earlier than plan simply because of the rate that players were being eliminated. It was estimated that an average of 300 were busting each hour, meaning that the bubble could have been passed. They ideally want all players in one room for that bubble, so decided to end the day so that tomorrow would see all players sharing the one room.

Andrew Liporace ended the day with the chip lead with a chip count of 1,128,000, though only just ahead of Mehrdad Yousefzadeh on 1,124,000. Of the big names to make it through to Day 4 we had Phil Ivey, Huck Seed, Ronnie Bardah, Christian Harder, Martin Jacobson and Jeff Madsen all made it through.

Not all were so lucky as we had a good amount of notable names heading for the exit doors on Day 3. Gavin Smith, Dan Kelly, Andrew Lichtenberger and PokerStars Team Pros Daniel Negreanu, Theo Jorgensen, Randy Lew and Jake Cody were the biggest of those names.

The money will start being paid when the field is down to 693 players, meaning we have little more than 50 to go on Day 4. The action will once again start at 12pm local time and we will have an update on the action once it has been completed.
