PokerStars EPT London Day 3 – Sormunen Has Slight Edge

shutterstock_122378482Things are starting to get serious in the PokerStars European Poker Tour London Main Event, with the 113 players that had done well enough to make it into Day 3 now being shrunk right down to just 32 going into Day 4 of the event.

That meant we had 81 eliminations, with 17 of those going home empty handed as the bubble period was passed with the remaining players after them secure in the knowledge that they had now made the money.

The man who finished the day as the chip leader was the Finnish pro Pasi Sormunen, as he built up a stack of 1,578,000 chips. This has him slightly ahead of second placed man Niall Farrell on 1,510,000 who is a further 350,000 ahead of Nicolas Choulty in third place.

Players Still In The Mix!

Day 3 saw the elimination of so many big names, of which we will share with you shortly, however there are still a few involved such as Mike MacDonald, Jason Mercier, Theo Jorgensen, Chris Moorman and the super cool Annette Obrestad.

 


Those who couldn’t quite make it include Liv Boeree, Steve O’Dwyer, Toby Lewis, Sandra Naujoks, David Vamplew, Viktor Blom, Philipp Gruissem, Leo Margets, Vicky Coren and the master strategist Marcel Luske.

 

 

The names in the field that have been eliminated are huge, with most of the PokerStars Team Pros being eliminated. There are still a couple remaining though with both Jason Mercier and Theo Jorgensen going strong in the event.

It is going to be incredibly interesting to see whether either of them can now mount a serious challenge on the title, though the field they are left in is very strong.

The Current Top Ten!

Pasi Sormunen – 1,578,000
Niall Farrell – 1,510,000
Nicolas Choulty – 1,143,000
Christopher Frank – 1,098,000
Mantas Visockis – 983,000
Bassel Moussa – 872,000
Steve Silverman – 800,000
Theo Jorgensen – 778,000
Tamer Kamel – 762,000
