WPT World Championship Day 3 – Rheem In Charge

Poker chipsWe have now seen the final table at the World Poker Tour World Championship materialise, with Chino Rheem the man to beat as he racked up 4,839,000 chips on Day 3. The day started out with twenty four players but they had to be whittled down to a final table of eight to contest the title later today on Day 4.

Rheem’s lead is very impressive, especially considering that his closest rival Erick Lindgren has just 2,518,000 chips in comparison. Despite this fact, the table is full of big names, with Lindgren and Daniel Negreanu being the biggest of them.


We lost 16 players in total on Day 3, with there having to be some big names falling along with them. We lost Jake Cody, Amir Babakhani, Dan Shak, Andy Frankenberger and Jason Mercier all sent packing throughout the day.

This now means that we have our eight finalists all ready to come back one more time to settle their business. They will all be casting their eyes on that title and winner’s cheque of $1,150,297, though they will be safe in the knowledge that they have banked at least $101,935. In fact the top 15 all got paid today, whilst the bubble boy being Hyon Kim finishing in 16th place.
