We are getting ever closer to revealing the latest winner of the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event as we saw the field reduced even further on Day 3 from around 70 players to just the 24 that will now progress into Day 4 today.
Leading this crop of players is Adrian Diaz after a storming day saw him become one of only two players to amass more than a million chips. He sits on 1,066,000 chips whilst Daniel Steinberg is not too far behind with 1,009,000.
There are still plenty of names behind those two that can certainly still challenge such as Dominik Nitsche, Fabrice Soullier, Sergio Aido, Ludovic Lacay and Shannon Shorr with each of these getting ever closer to that final table.

Advanced to day 4 of #WSOPE Main Event with 373k. Middle of the pack with 24 guys left. The march to the final table begins at 6 am Eastern.

The biggest elimination of the 55 or so players that went home would have been the last bust of the night in Daniel Negreanu. He is trying to win the WSOP Player of the Year accolade and is currently behind the British pro Matt Ashton and so needed at least a 7th place finish here to jump ahead of him. However he was eliminated in 25th place meaning he now only has the High Roller event that also played yesterday to try and overtake his opponent who funnily enough is also playing in the event.
Out of the main KT vs AK needed a T and hit it on the river but he made a straight! One more shot in the high roller to win POY
