WSOP Main Event Day 3 – Coleman Leads With A Million

WSOP Main Event

All of the players in the Main Event of the World Series of Poker all finally played on the same day, as Day 3 saw them all return with the hope of really getting into the business end of the event and make the paying places on Day 4.

Rather spookily, 666 players finished up the day knowing that they now have a very good chance of making the top 648 and walking home with some form of profit on their initial investment. The bubble is expected to burst very early on during Day 4 with just 18 players out of that number still to go home with nothing.

Maxx Coleman is the top dog at the moment after becoming the first player to pass the one million marker in chips with a stack of 1,071,500. This has him a little less than 100k ahead of Joshua Prager and Max Steinberg in second and third respectively.

Who Is In And Who Is Out!

An event of this magnitude is going to have the world’s best players bringing their best games to the felt, so it is no surprise that there are still plenty of the biggest names in the game still involved. We have Kyle Julius, Doyle Brunson, Luke Schwartz, Annette Obrestad, Russell Thomas, Melanie Weisner, Bertrand Grospellier, Leo Margets, Marvin Rettenmaier and Marcel Luske nursing healthy stacks going into Day 4.

There were however many that were eliminated, with them all rueing the fact that they have now missed the chance of a payout. Names like Allen Kessler, Theo Jorgensen, Sam Holden, Elisabeth Hille, Andy Frankenberger, Johnathan Aguiar, Philipp Gruissem, Liv Boeree, Dan Cates, Phil Hellmuth, and the biggest of them all in Phil Ivey all busted at least a day before they would have hoped.


The Current Top Ten!

Maxx Coleman – 1,071,500

Joshua Prager – 993,000

Max Steinberg – 987,500

Dick van Luijk – 940,000

Vladimir Geshkenbein – 900,000

Nick Schwarmann – 893,000

Matthew Huey – 885,500

Chris Johnson – 862,000

Umang Dattani – 848,000

Kevin Williams – 808,500

Day 4 sees the bubble and the event really getting serious as each player will strongly believe they have a great shot at winning the world’s biggest live event.
